Address: Garrysallagh, Mount Nugent, Co Cavan
Farm size: 53 ha owned
Farming system: 50 Suckler cows selling bull calves as weanlings and selling heifers as stores or as beef
Farm Plan: The main aim of the farm plan is to increase output from grass. Calving spread has slipped over the years so Michael is aiming to tighten this up to a 10 week period. This will hopefully help Michael achieve close to the target of €1000/ha gross margin. Michael will focus more on gain from grass to reduce concentrate and silage usage and reduce variable costs on farm.
