Support Farms

Paudie O'Brien Cows Signpost FarmThe ‘Support farms’ are a vehicle that will champion technical assistance in specific areas or pathways of improvement in a particular area. The ‘Support farm’ initiative is a tailored demand driven service that was identified as part of the review of the joint programme carried out in 2019. Support farms will be identified based on a specific focus/ technical issue.  The ‘Support farms’ are keen to share their experiences and willing to host events for small groups of suppliers that have expressed interest in that topic.

Dairy farmers interested in attending these ‘Support farms’ need to express interest to the Teagasc advisory team and/ or Kerry Agribusiness staff to organise an event. Events can then be organised and delivered by Teagasc staff on the Kerry Joint Programme, the local Teagasc B&T dairy advisor and Kerry Agribusiness representatives.
