Variation in grass growth and feed supply due to weather conditions is inevitable in our ruminant farming systems. A prolonged period of adverse weather will test the resilience of the whole farm system.

It is important that farms plan ahead for the adverse weather events. Teagasc has identified steps to be taken at farm and industry level in this regard.

Key Measures:

  • Building a feed reserve
  • Grass and feed budgeting
  • Fodder survey early warning system
  • Farm infrastructure
