Dairy farmers are under extreme income pressure right now due to a drop in milk price, but small improvements can quickly add up to big savings. Teagasc, together with stakeholders from the Get Farm Financially Fit campaign, have organised a number of on-farm dairy walks, beginning today in County Clare, which will provide timely advice in the areas of grass budgeting, winter feed budgeting and cash flow management.
