Gareth operates a calf-to-beef and tillage enterprise on 45ha at Drumlougher Co. Donegal. He is in a registered farm partnership with his parents. Calf numbers have been growing year-on-year with all animals purchased from the one dairy farm. His current system is month Holstein Friesian steers.
A new five-bay slatted shed has just been completed on the farm and Gareth is keen to make strides in grassland management over the duration of the programme.
