VIDEO: Agricultural-related projects at the BT Young Scientist competition

By Maura Fay on 08 January 2014
The BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition 2014 has begun in the RDS today and features numerous entries related to agriculture.

The Farmers Journal's Maura Fay has been speaking to some of the students who carried out projects related to farming.

"Easy Farming" is a company that was set up by two transition year students, Barry Mohan and Darragh Matthews from the Patrician High School, Carrickmacross. Their company has developed a machine for automatically dosing cattle.

"Comparing the nutriontional value of horse meat to other meats" is a project by Anna Flannery and Sheila Ryan from Salesian College, Limerick.

"Farm App" is an app by Pauric Leech and David Newcomen from Franciscan College, Meath that's designed to help dairy farmers identify which cows are next to calf.

"Free-range eggs- who's the mammy?" is a project by Maille Cronin from Coláiste Muire, Crosshaven, Cork that aims to determine which hens are laying in a free range poultry farm using RFID and wireless sensor technology.
