The Greenfield Kilkenny farm is planning to produce almost 1.5m litres of milk at 4.68% fat and 3.71% protein (127,185kg of milk solids) in 2015, but at predicted milk prices, the farm is set to lose money this year.

The January budget shows total cash output will come to €531,278, but total cash costs will amount to €555,800, including capital repayment to the bank (€55,938).
