Cork Farmer focuses on increasing milk yield and reducing workload with Eornagold
John Shanahan, his wife Anne and son Jack farm with a pedigree Holstein herd in Ballintotis, Midleton, Co. Cork with 100 cows on a 60 acre grazing platform.
This is very much a family enterprise with Anne and Jack being hands-on with their spring and autumn calving herd.
For two and a half years John Shanahan has been using the high protein and high energy feed Eornagold from Specialist Nutrition for his pedigree Holstein cows. John, to his own surprise, saw an immediate change in his milk yields as well as an increase in daily intakes, improved fertility and a reduction in workload.
