    We milk mostly Dairy Shorthorn cows, with some Kerry and Droimeann cattle also. I find these old breed more suitable to Organic farming methods as my system is to milk off grass for as long as possible and these breeds are very suitable.The cows milk mainly from grass, and because our land is on limestone rock it is very dry and I aim to let them out on grass as soon as they calve.

    John is a certified organic farmer for over 15 years. My farming system is a traditional grass fed spring calving herd of Friesian and Jersey cows who produce milk from March to December. These cows are milked once a day, with the resulting milk containing high butterfat and protein constituents. John is also on the board of the Irish Organic Growers and Farmers Association, a certification body that regulates organic farmers and processors.
