Grass10 Farm Walk - Sheep Winner

Event Time TBC
Venue Farm of Peadar Kearney, Dundalk, Co. Louth
A Grass10 Farm Walk will take place on 6 September on the farm of Peadar Kearney, Dundalk, Co. Louth. Peadar won the Sheep Enterprise Award in the 2017 Grass10 Grassland Farmer of the Year Award.

Peadar is farming 27ha of good land in two blocks at Tallanstown Co. Louth. The home farm is 10ha and there is a leased outfarm of 16ha. In 2017 he had 330 ewes, giving a stocking rate of 12.2 ewes/ha. This year Peadar expects to have a surplus of silage, this is a big change from four years previous when he bought in all his silage. This excellent turnaround is due to the serious focus he has put on growing more grass. In 2016 15.5t/ha of grass was grown on the farm.
