MAY 2020 West Cork dairy farmer – Reducing nitrogen use and improving soil health

Hi there. My name is Thomas Griffin and I farm here with my family in Timoleague in West Cork. We currently milk 200 high EBI spring calving Friesian cows in a grass based system with an effective SR of 2.55 LU/Ha. We measure grass weekly and all data is inputted into Pasture Base Ireland. Last year we averaged 14 T DM/Ha with 525 Kg MS/cow sold. We have 2 labour units and all heifers are contract reared off-farm.
