The farm: “We keep 24 suckler cows on 130ac along the Fermanagh-Leitrim border. My father Robert is 72 and helps out with jobs from time to time. He’s keeping well – it’s great to have the extra pair of hands and eyes around.”

Managing grass: “The cows are predominantly Limousin and Simmental. We keep a vasectomised bull and breed using AI. We calve all year round, which takes the pressure off and allows us to better manage our grass cover.”
