Où se trouve votre ferme?

Our family farmis located inCounty Westmeath, Ireland pretty much in the center of the country.

À quoi ressemble votre ferme? Quelle est la taille de votre ferme? Que cultivez-vous ou élevez-vous?

My husband, Kenneth Bray, is the 8egeneration of his family to farm this land. We are currently milking 70 Holsteins principalement de race pure sur 96 d'acres. (Cheryl is also engaged in her own familys beef cattle operation in Canada.)

Qu'attendez-vous le plus lorsque vous vous préparez à participer au 2018 Table ronde mondiale Fermier?

I am most looking forward to meeting the other participants and in working towards solutions to common problems that we all face. Its nice to know that everyone shares similar issues and that none of us are alone in figuring them out.
