NOTHING SUCCEEDS LIKE SUCCESSION

A recent survey carried out for Macra na Feirme showed that half of all farmers have not identified a successor to take over the running of the farm after their time. Alan Jagoe President of Macra Na Feirme and twenty one year old Aoife Ladd, a dairy farmer from the Mallow area, were in the Cork studio to tell Damien about this real problem..  The full details of the survey are in the news section on the Macra website.   www.macra.ie
