Your chance to become a BETTER Sheep Farmer


Are you interested in using the latest technology to develop your sheep enterprise for a sustainable future in collaboration with Teagasc? If your answer is ‘Yes’ then this may be the opportunity you need. Teagasc is seeking farmers interested in taking part in the BETTER Farm Sheep Programme

In particular we are looking for:

  • lowland sheep farmers in the Midlands, North East and Donegal
  • as well as hill sheep farmers in the South East
  • and farmers nationwide who are running organic sheep enterprises.

This programme will involve active development of the sheep enterprise through the application of the latest technologies. 

In the BETTER Farm Sheep Prgramme to date, the farmers involved volunteered to participate in the programme. They were selected because they are enthusiastic about progressive development of their sheep enterprise. They are open to change to achieve better financial returns and labour efficiency.   It involves active collaboration between the farmer and Teagasc Research and Advisory staff.
