Glanbia Ireland / Teagasc End of Programme Monitor Farm Walks

Monitor Farmer Conor Beausang: A Decade of Growth (RESCHEDULED)

The past ten years has seen a lot of change on the Beausang farm at Churchwater, Grange, Co. Waterford. Traditionally, the farm managed by Philip and Peggy Beausang had been a tillage, sheep and suckler enterprise.

In 2008 their son, Conor, returned to full time farming having completed his Green Cert in Kildalton and a few years working part-time off farm.

‘I couldn’t see a viable future with the existing set up without working off-farm as well. I felt that changing to dairy farming was the only choice for me if I wanted to have a good income out of farming.’

Conor Beausang’s rescheduled end of programme farm walk will take place on Friday 9 November at 11am in Churchquarter, Grange, via Youghal, Co. Waterford

Glanbia Ireland / Teagasc End of Programme Monitor Farm Walks

The Teagasc/Glanbia Joint Programme was set up to position dairy farmers in the Glanbia area to take advantage of growth opportunities that arose post 2015.

Join us this Autumn as we visit the monitor farms involved to learn what skills and knowledge they have gained from the programme to sustainably and profitably future proof their dairy farm businesses.
