Positive Farmers Missouri Study Tour June 2015
The Land of Milk & Money
Niall Murphy, Shane Maxwell and farm manager of Focal Farms
SNAPSHOT OF RECENT ACTIVITY
The Positive Farmers had a very successful and enjoyable trip to Missouri.  We asked many questions of our host farmers and want to thank each and every one of them for their openness and hospitality. They played a very important part in the success of this trip.

The Positive Farmers Group present Europe’s premier Dairy Farming Conference each year 

The main aim is to provide independent, high quality information from some of the worlds top-performing dairy farmers, scientists, advisors and other professionals. We want to help dairy farmers build a profitable farming business together with a high quality of life. Inside the farm gate we promote the GrassRich low cost based milk production system, which focuses on profit, and labour efficiency and proves resilient when milk prices fall or production costs increase unexpectedly

Many thanks to all the host farmers and advisors who shared their knowledge and gave us a great insight into their Farm systems. Certainly all those with a low cost grass based system in place are withstanding the low milk price.

Niall Murphy, Shane Maxwell and farm manager of Focal Farms
SNAPSHOT OF RECENT ACTIVITY
The Positive Farmers had a very successful and enjoyable trip to Missouri This tour helped people to understand the U.S. Dairy industry and view it as real competitors for Irish & UK dairy farmers. It also showed the opportunities in Missouri and how the challenges of unpredictable weather can be overcome. We asked many questions of our host farmers and want to thank each and every one of them for their openness and hospitality. They played a very important part in the success of this trip.
