In the latest in our series of study guide videos, the co-author of our Animal Enterprises study guides, Johnny Gleeson, discusses the content and key learning outcomes for students and teachers with Irish Farmers Journal dairy editor, Aidan Brennan.

This classroom video takes students and teachers beyond the content of the weekly study guides, adding context and practical examples to enhance their understanding on the topics of Animal Enterprises. Key areas covered include:

  • Ireland’s dairy herd.
  • A typical year on a dairy farm in Ireland.
  • Milk yields and the use of antibiotics.
  • Breeding and genetics.
  • Sexed semen in Ireland.
  • Bull beef production.
  • Alternative dairy in Ireland.
