Fodder Census July 2018 Results

The Interagency Fodder Committee conducted a Fodder Census at the end of June / early July. Over 1,000 farmers from across a range of enterprises were surveyed across the country. Results of this survey in late June / early July showed a deficit of 18% nationally. The variation across regions varied from a 12% deficit in Roscommon, Longford, Sligo, Leitrim, Donegal and up to a 30% deficit in parts of West Cork. The results have to be treated with some caution as conditions have deteriorated since the census date. If we assume that half of the second cut has been consumed, Teagasc estimate that the national fodder deficit is now 28%.
