Irish Grassland Farms – Producing A World Class Product

Irish grass fed farming systems are internationally recognised as producers of top quality feed products. The fact that our beef and milk is produced off grass is what sets Ireland apart in producing a world famous product. Given the importance of our grassland farms, reseeding is one of the best investments any Irish farmer can make particularly since grass is the cheapest and most productive feed of all for dairy, beef and sheep enterprises.

Grass is a fundamental part of livestock farming in Ireland. Our green image sets us apart from others worldwide and gives us a distinct advantage in the marketplace. For farmers, grass provides a nutritious and cheap feed source that can improve farm profitability.

Identifying poorer performing swards and renewing pastures regularly is important to maximise productivity and maintain pasture quality. New grass varieties can produce more grass and will be of higher quality. A full reseed is advised where Perennial ryegrass content of a sward falls below 60%.

When reseeding, farmers should always use varieties that are performing well on the Teagasc PPI (Pasture Profit Index) and Department recommended lists. Consideration needs to be given to other grass variety traits such as Spring growth, sward density, digestibility or total potential yield.

The Green Acres range is made up top performing varieties that lead the way on the PPI.
