Our technical specialists continue to provide you with advice on how you can maintain farm productivity at this important time in the farming calendar.

To help with this, we have introduced a new free digital platform called Farm Tech Talks, which you can view here.

With the support of FBD, MSD, Ornua and Bord Bia, we will bring you two weekly broadcasts covering technical issues plus the latest farming news updates each Friday and Saturday night.

Cattle price calculator

Also, with the recent disruption in the marts coming at a time when over 500,000 cattle are normally traded, we have launched a free cattle price calculator, which you can view here.

This tool will allow you to calculate the value of your animal, based on sales data collected on hundreds of thousands of animals recorded through our Martbids app.

Furthermore, we have also launched a free pedigree stock bull calculator, which you can view here.

This calculator will give you a good idea of the price you should be paying for a bull. Along with advice on what age bull you require, this calculator will allow you to select based on breed type and quality type before generating an average price.


Finally, the country may be in lockdown, but farmers are still working on essential food production. Share your pictures and stories with us here and let us know how life is continuing on your farm.

Just fill in the online form, add your pictures and tell us a little bit about how you're coping in the lockdown. Keep farming and stay safe.
