Project Name: Better Farm Sheep Programme
The goal of the Better Farm Sheep Programme is to establish focal points for the on-farm implementation, development and evaluation of technology that is relevant to the sheep sector. The programmes implemented on the collaborating farms will be used to support the wider adoption of: Grassland management, Breeding, Production methods, in the context of an agreed plan. that can enhance the sustainability of sheep enterprises. The central concept is that the programme is built upon active collaboration between the farmer and Teagasc Research and Advisory staff in the application and development of appropriate technology. A very close linkage with discussion groups and other advisory initiatives is an integral part of the process and this will revolve around the farmer sharing experiences and performance results with visiting groups.
