Young West Clare Farmer Scoops Award For College Project

It’s not every day a young farmer from Clare takes home an award for his work but that’s exactly what Andrew Naughton has done.

The Cross native is a student and as part of his college work, completed a farm business plan which focused on improved on farm efficiency and gradual conversion from beef to dairy.

For his efforts, he scooped the Salesian Agri College Best Farm Business Plan award, sponsored by AIB.


Andrew shares his story on this week’s podcast (from 9:35).

Also on the programme was Adam Woods from The Irish Farmers Journal, to preview their upcoming Beef & Sheep Open Day (from 13:14) and Michael Dillon from the Kilrush office of Teagasc talks worming (1:00).
