The Farm Show

The Farm Show – Sponsored by – 24/1/2019

First tonight we heard from the CEO of Glanbia, Jim Bergin. Matt spoke to Jim about the new continental cheese facility planned for the Belview plant, the increased production of Glanbia milk suppliers, BREXIT  and the outlook for milk prices for the coming year.

Matt spoke with George Ramsbottom, dairy adviser with Teagasc about the issues around calf care as we enter in the busy season. He also spoke with Kilkenny dairy farmer, Cathal Moran on how he manages his herd.

The EU Agriculture Commissioner, Phil  Hogan, was in Kilkenny recently and Matt discussed the latest BREXIT developments, his plans for the Common Agricultural Policy, live exports and his own plans for next year.

We had the weekly Farm Diary sponsored by Tullow Mart and George Candler joined us from Kilkenny Mart to give the Kilkenny Mart Report.
