Social Media Takeover with Mike Bermingham
Mike Bermingham is the Dairy Category Winner of the 2019 Grassland Farmer of the Year Competition. On Wednesday, 29 July Mike will be taking over the Teagasc Instagram and Teagasc Grass10 twitter account to give us an insight into his farm and farming system.
Mike farms with his family outside Fermoy, Co. Cork milking 108 cows in a spring calving system. He has consistently grown 14 T DM Grass per Ha using 200u N/acre (250 Kg N/Ha) whilst farming between 500 and 600ft above sea level. Mike has a simple grass-based system which last year produced 560 Kg MS per cow on 800 Kg concentrates.
