This week, we hear from dairy farmer Alan Jagoe, who outlines what has been happening on-farm since his last video, along with his upcoming plans. Topics discussed in this video include:

  • Breeding update.
  • Milk production
  • Grazing, sward management and soil testing.
  • Livestock diets.
  • The benefits of technology on Alan’s farm.
  • Sustainability and biodiversity on Alan’s farm.
  • If you have any questions for any of our case study farmers, feel free to email them to

    Throughout the 2020-2021 school year, the Irish Farmers Journal will be releasing videos from each of our case study farmers, who will give us an update on their on-farm progress. By the end of the school year in 2021, each student who signs up for this year’s study guides will have access to five sector-by-sector mini case studies.
