Owen from Kingscourt Co. Cavan farms on the banks of Lough Ramor. Currently he is milking 194 cows on a 59ha milking platform. The topography of this farm is difficult, the top of the farm is 2.3km from the yard, up a steep slope. Grass growth is excellent, averaging 15.5tDM/ha over the last three years. The purchase of 50ac in late 2018 has brought the overall stocking rate is now 2.6 cows/ha. Owen is mindful of the environment, all slurry is spread using either a dribble bar or a trailing shoe and new hedgerows and trees have been planted around the farm.
