A Grass10 farm walk recently took place on the farm of Ger Dineen in Kilnamartrya, Macroom, Co Cork. Ger is the national beef winner of the 2017 Grassland farmer of the year award.
Over 300 people from around the country attended the event. The Grassland farmer of the year competition promotes the effective utilisation of the national grassland resource on beef, dairy and sheep farms. Ger Dineen is an excellent example of a farmer who is growing more grass and grazing more grass, which is improving the profitability of his business.
