Join us on 18th April on the farm of Eddie O'Donnell, overall winner and dairy category winner of the Grassland Farmer of the Year Competition 2017. Eddie and his father Denis farm 116 hectares outside the village of Golden in south Tipperary. In 2017, they milked 318 cows giving a stocking rate of 2.75 cows/ha on the milking blocks.

There is excellent grazing infrastructure with 5m wide roadways and two 300 gallon water troughs in each paddock. The O’Donnell farm aims to grow enough grass to feed the cows with minimum supplements. In 2017, over 18 Tons Grass DM/ha was grown & 10
grazings/paddock achieved.
