Dairy

Almost 17,000 dairy farmers milk Ireland’s 1.2 million dairy cows. With a temperate climate, Irish dairy farmers can grow large quantities of grass over a long season. This advantage makes dairying the most profitable of Ireland’s mainstream agricultural enterprises. Coupled with their use of Teagasc’s research, advisory and education services, Irish dairy farmers are among the most competitive on the world stage.
