Day 2: Dairy Summer Tour

The IGA Summer Tour is heading to the North East for 2023.  The event will be hosted by two excellent farms in the Cavan area, David Brady and Owen Brodie. Farms in this area can face a specific set of challenges from farm fragmentation to dealing with high rainfall and difficult soils. The day will focus on how our two hosts have adapted these principles to their own circumstances and we will be guided through the development of their family farm businesses, highlighting key milestones and what success means for them.

Commenting at the launch of this year’s Summer Tour, Barry Hyland, AIB Agri Advisor said, ‘AIB is delighted to continue our long association with the IGA Dairy Summer tour. As always, the IGA has identified two excellent host farmers for this year’s event. Farming in this area can be more challenging than in other parts of the country, and as such, the focus on grass and cows is even more important. I am looking forward to hearing both the Brady and Brodie stories and how they have developed their farms over the years to overcome some of these challenges’.
