Cheque this out: Kilkenny farmer wins two prestigious national awards
A Kilkenny man has been named the Grassland Farmer of the Year for 2019.
Bryan Daniels from Kilmoganny picked up the award from Agriculture Minister Michael Creed at an awards ceremony over the weekend.
Bryan picked up a winner’s cheque for €6,000 and was also named Sustainable Farmer of the Year.
Teagasc Chairman Liam Herlihy said: “This competition provides a huge stimulus for farmers to improve their grassland management practise, whether it is improving grassland measurement, soil fertility or grazing infrastructure. These farmers will show us all the potential that can be achieved from managing grass to high levels.”
