The Irish Grassland Association (IGA) is one of Irish Agriculture’s great national resources. We are here to advance the knowledge of good grassland management in Irish Farming. Since its foundation in 1946 the IGA has played a unique and central role in the development of profitable systems of milk, beef and lamb production from Ireland’s abundant grasslands. The essential component of this objective is the stimulation and development of new ideas, research and new farm practices with associated financial analyses. The Irish Grassland Association is a registered charity ref no CHY 20445. (memo dated 2021)
