Teagasc Road Maps - Sheep

Irish agriculture is facing a period of change. The Food Harvest 2020 report sets out ambitious targets for the agriculture and food industry. Teagasc has outlined the developments required for each of the major farming enterprises and the food sector over the next seven years to 2018. The nine Teagasc Road Maps covering dairy, suckler beef, pigs, sheep, tillage, forestry, horticulture, food and the environment, summarize the expected changes in the shape and size of the individual sectors in the context of the main market and policy issues facing Irish producers in each enterprise. The Road Maps specifically set out the technical performance required at farm level to meet these targets. They take account of environmental and land use implications of these changes and Food Harvest 2020.
