The competition will recognise those farmers who are achieving high levels of grass utilisation in a sustainable manner. Irish agriculture faces serious challenges in trying to meet Greenhouse Gas and Ammonia emissions targets. Improved Nutrient Management and the use of clover are now more important than ever. The sustainability of our livestock production must improve.

Some farmers have to operate with difficult land and the competition will recognise this challenge. Pasture performance is critical to the success of organic farming, there is a category for organic farmers.

Awards will also be made to those farmers who demonstrate excellence in specific areas of grassland on their farm.
