Anyone looking for a stocking filler for the dairy farmer in your life need look no further than the Irish Dairy Farmer magazine.

Published by the Irish Farmers Journal and written by the dairy team with help from contributors, the magazine is action packed with farmer features.

These features go into great detail on the background, history, performance and future plans of dairy farms across Ireland and overseas.

With professional photography used throughout, the farms come alive on the page and the articles provide great insight into how these top farms have grasped opportunities, dealt with challenges and maintained a good work/life balance.

Some of the Irish farmers featured in the 2024 annual include;

  • David Dolan from Mayo
  • TJ Sullivan from the Beara Peninsula, Cork
  • Simon Breen from Tipperary
  • Donie O’Donovan from West Cork
  • Derek Dunn from Tyrone
  • Edward Treanor from Monaghan
  • Pallaskenry Agricultural College, Limerick
  • Jody O’Neill, Waterford
  • Johnny and Jerome O’Brien, West Cork
  • The magazine also includes features from farmers in Denmark and the US along with articles on cost control, solar panels and how tillage and dairy farmers can co-operate together.

    The magazine is available to purchase online at where subscribers can sign up for future editions.

    Covering everything from solar panels to ‘10 in 7’ milking to cutting costs and reacting to changes to the nitrates derogation, we think there is something in this edition for everyone.

    The Irish Farmers Journal would like to thank the farmers for their participation in the magazine and allowing our journalists and photographers to intrude into the farms and homes.

    They do so in the spirit and knowledge that by sharing their experiences they may help other farmers out. There are very few industries where this happens so it deserves to be recognised.
