IGA 2016 Beef Conference

The IGA are delighted to announce that award winning Welsh farmer Glasnant Morgan will be giving a keynote address at the 2016 beef conference in the Radisson Blu Hotel and Spa, Limerick on Wednesday April 27th. Farming 450 acres, Glasnant runs a herd of 50 autumn-calving sucklers and a flock of 850 ewes. Grazed grass is integral to the farming system. Glasnant farms to get the most from pasture to maximise self-sufficiency. In the spring 10% of the farm has grass seed stitched in with a grass harrow and hopper. According to Glasnant, “Our sole aim is to produce offspring so we graze the grass hard, that’s the only way to keep on top of it.’’ Glasnant is a mentor in the Welsh Government’s Young Entrants Support Scheme, and was the National Farmers Union Wales Brecon County Chairmen for two years.
