Dairylink

Dairylink is a dairy farm advisory program designed with the objective of optimising the use of on farm resources (land, labour etc). Farms involved range in size, stage of development, and soil type. Monitor farms are based in Tyrone, Down and Cavan. Farmers involved benefit from one to one advice and we report weekly on business plans, performance and delivery.
