Silage Competition 2020
A joined-first placing, the first time ever that there has been a tie for the top spot!

Silage samples numbering seventy-odd were collected on the farms of participants in the Club’s silage competition 2020. Thanks to the hard-working club members who collected the samples on September 7th and 8th namely; Pat Fanning, Kevin Doran, Chris Mulally, Colin Stevenson and Myles Murphy. The samples were forwarded to the UK for laboratory testing, thanks to Myles of Trouw Nutrition who organised the transport logistics. The timely turnaround in sending results back from the lab was very efficient. Thanks to Ned Loughlin of Teagasc who then judged the data results. Well done to all for taking part and congratulations to the prize winners. Thanks to Alltech for their continued sponsorship.
