Winter 2013 - Fodder Crisis

For those that did not follow the Irish news - This past winter is still taking a bite out of 'profit' as the animals that are usually out on grass in February did not get out of the sheds until June. In the south of Ireland - you do not usually have such elongated winters. It just rained and rained therefore the grass growth fell 6 weeks behind and the land was saturated with water - Animals on saturated land produce muddy animals and destroy the land. We are very much looking forward to a more profitable 2014 as 2013 will be long remembered as the non-profitable year !
