Biosecurity & Energy use; Farm visit to Eugene & Ciaran Sheehan's progressive pig farm in Co. Cork

On day three of Virtual Pig Week we bring you on a virtual farm visit to Eugene Sheehan and his son Ciarán on their progressive pig farm in Co. Cork. Eugene and Ciarán will tell us a about how improving biosecurity on their pig farm led to great improvements in production and reduced antibiotic use. They will also discuss their use of alternative energy, solar and biomass, on their farm and the benefits they have seen since switching.

The live panel for this event will be hosted by Gerard McCutcheon, Teagasc Pig Development Department Specialist Advisor
