Closing date extended for Grassland Farmer of the Year
The closing date for applications for the 2020 Grassland Farmer of the Year has been extended. Applications will now close on Friday September 11th 2020.
The Grassland Farmer of the Year competition will recognise those farmers who are achieving high levels of grass utilisation in a sustainable manner. Irish agriculture faces serious challenges in trying to meet Greenhouse Gas and Ammonia emissions targets. Improved Nutrient Management and the use of clover are now more important than ever. The sustainability of our livestock production must improve.
Some farmers have to operate with difficult land and the competition will also recognise this.
Awards will also be made to those farmers who demonstrate excellence in specific areas of grassland on their farm.
