In February 2021 we launched our most recent project with FAI Farms, to help us better understand the benefits of applying regenerative principles to beef farming, using adaptive multi-paddock grazing for cattle. We expect this will deliver environmental benefits such as better soil health, a greater diversity of wildlife and species, and increase the removal and storage of carbon by adopting this approach. Learn more about the project in this short film.
Supporting best practice in beef farming
In 2015, we supported the establishment of a beef innovation farm. The Newford farm, established by Dawn Meats and Teagasc, with additional technical assistance from the Irish Farmers Journal, has the aim of demonstrating best practice in sustainable suckler beef production. The farm is showing how it is possible to generate a viable family farm income and improve profitability when operated to the highest level of technical efficiency and best practice. It acts as a shop window for new technologies, with data available to interested parties.
