This week, we hear from sheep farmer Joanne Devaney.

Joanne talks about what has been happening on-farm since her last video, along with her upcoming plans. Topics discussed in these videos include:

  • Ultrasound scanning.
  • Pre-lambing preparations.
  • Nutrition and diets.
  • The impact that weather and body condition can have during lambing.
  • If you have any questions for any of our case study farmers, feel free to email your questions 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 to this year’s study guides will have access to five sector-by-sector mini case studies.
