Irvine Allen - Teagasc Green Acres Farm Walk


Irvine Allen is a participant in the second phase of the Teagasc Green Acres Calf to Beef Programme and runs a dairy calf-to-beef operation on his 58ha farm in Co. Westmeath. Irvine will host a farm walk on 5th October at 2pm and invites you to come see the improvements he has made in the enterprise

Irvine wasn't happy with the return from the system on his farm and three years ago he got the opportunity join the Teagasc GreenAcres Calf to Beef Programme.

This has led to improved grassland management, herd health and herd performance.

Irvine will host a farm walk on 5th October at 2pm and invites you to come and learn:

  • management of the calf from birth until weaning off milk
  • how to achieve target weight gains in calves
  • how to achieve low cost levels of weight gain in the 2nd grazing season
