Teagasc recently organised a social media takeover with Mike Bermingham, the dairy category winner of the 2019 GFOY competition.
Mike farms with his family outside Fermoy, Co. Cork milking 108 cows in a spring-calving system.
He has consistently grown 14 T DM Grass per Ha using 200u N/acre (250 Kg N/Ha) whilst farming between 500 and 600ft above sea level.
The Cork native has a simple grass-based system which last year produced 560 Kg MS per cow on 800 Kg of concentrates.
In this video, he explains how he achieves such high performance from grass.
