Contractors are the key, for hedges fit for birds and bees. Liam Herlihy is a contractor in Limerick keen to improve hedges. He advises farmers and contractors they need to have a conversation before hedges are cut.
Francis Quigley Teagasc Machinery Specialist has a clear message for contractors and farmers to ‘have a conversation’ before hedges are cut. Cork dairy farmer Tony Mullins gives the experience of a farmer cutting his own hedges and Padraig McCormack Teagasc advisor gives clear advice to farmers on best practice management for the two broad categories of hedges. One option for hedge cutting on farms in Nitrates Derogation will be demonstrated by Francis Collier Farm Manager in Teagasc Grange.
