Research at Moorepark Farm focuses on different components of the overall milk production system. Results achieved from this research are frequently integrated into systems research experiments being completed on other Teagasc dairy farms.
Purchased as a 100ha block for dairy cow research in 1958. The Land Commission granted the Moorepark Estate to Teagasc to establish a Research Centre; the initial activity centred on putting suitable facilities in place for laboratories and animals and the employment of research, technical and general staff to undertake the research work. The work that started in 1958 is still being continued today and integrates cutting edge technology to help increase the efficiency of dairy production systems. Every second year an open day is held on the Moorepark farm highlighting technological advances.
