The IGA Summer Tour for 2024 will be held on Tues 9th July in Co. Laois.  Join us as we head to two exceptional farms where there will be a wide range of themes showcased on the day.

Bruce Thompson who is farming outside the village of Ballyfin is an 8th generation farmer.  The farm which was traditionally a mixed farm is now a commercial dairy farm with a herd of 275 cross-bred cows. Bruce is a popular and well-known Farming for Nature Ambassador and Nuffield Scholar.

Roy and Trevor Cobbe are farming in partnership.  The family has a long history in farming, with this the 3rd and 4th generation farming at Doolagh, outside Portarlington.  Trevor was the 2021 FBD Young Dairy Farmer of the year and since returning home has consistently adopted best farming technologies and efficiencies and has been hugely supported and encouraged by his father Roy.  They run the Doolagh pedigree registered Holstein Friesian herd of 120 cows.

AIB again sponsors the IGA Summer Tour, and Mick Conlon, AIB Agri Advisor said “AIB is delighted to continue our long association with the Irish Grassland Association. This year’s summer tour is a great opportunity to see and hear from two progressive farms. Bruce is running a large-scale commercial dairy farm, with a focus on the environment while the Cobbe’s are an excellent example of the typical intergenerational partnerships that are in place on many farms around the country. Both farms will have very different stories and insights to share but the fundamentals of cows, management and grass are key to the success of both farms.
