The farmer, Simon Reilly, is based in Kilcogey in Co Cavan. He bought this nice 45 acre block of land, near Castlepollard, last May. There was no serviceable yard or sheds. "I had no way of getting in the cattle, I couldn’t dose them, I had to use a temporary set up for a herd test." So he drew up a design and with the help of his neighbour Killian Brennan the new unit was built earlier this month.
