Information, information, information are three well used words of Eoghan McCarthy who is constantly on the hunt for new ways to reduce costs inside the farm gate.
“There’s nothing you can do about the weather or global milk prices, but there is a lot you can do about your costs on farm,” Eoghan says with the infectious passion of the converted.
“Moorepark is a serious source of information if you want to get farm costs down. There are courses on EBI and grassland management, and the co-ops are good at getting the latest farming information out to farmers. I only wish the farm organisations were as good at getting the information out as they are about protesting,” he adds.
