Last year was a good year for the Irish Farmers Journal beef and sheep demonstration farm in terms of financial performance.

The farm operates a herd of 90 suckler cows and 250 mid-season lambing ewes on 80ha just outside Tullamore in Co Offaly. Bulls are finished as under 16-month bulls with heifers sold as in-calf heifers at 18 to 19 months.
