Country Life with MJ Clery

Wednesday, 3 April 2024 - 44 minutes

On the programme this week MJ chats to Joe Patton from Teagasc about the poor growth rates and weather conditions which are putting farmers to the pin of their collars with huge pressure on fodder and slurry storage. Robert Birney from FRS chats about their new fencing post which has recently launched, the Dura 2 post. FRS had to look to the market for a new preservative on posts as the use of creosote was banned last year. Marty Murphy from IFAC accountants speaks about how renewable energy companies are now looking for land from farmers for battery storage as well as solar panels. Eugene Larkin from Glen Field Rapeseed Oil chats about the business based in Co. Offaly where everything from planting, harvesting, pressing, bottling and delivery are handled by the family members.
