Farming background

Hi im Eoghan I’m a 25 year old farmer who’s looking for tempiory work with beef cattle and sheep section...I Have Experience in running my own farm for this past 10 years after my father had to quit due to health reasons.Ive had to do serious multitasking as we do all the calving/lambing together in March. Since I’ve taken over the farm I’ve focused a lot of time in culling unproductive/underperforming cows that have slipped out of calving pattern as that’s no use to me if I’m going to be selling my sucklers in October.Im a firm believer in quality stock over quantity.. Dad would of been a bit more lieniant than myself with regards to letting cows slip out of the calling pattern.So that explains the cutting down of some stock.After I’ve finished lambing and calving my cattle /sheep I then head down to my uncles farm to help him manage the hectic workload . He calves 50 cows in March/april along with lambing 300 ewes. On his farm it’s “farm to fork” he kills all of his cattle,and all of his lambs too.Theres also another neighbouring lady who Id help with her calving too as and when required. My farm is 100%paddock grazing with calves creeping in front of mothers to get priority grass. On my farm we run a Limousin Bull with the main herd,then we use AI for the replacement heifers we buy,purely for a calving easy the first time around.Personally I think it’s key to selecting easy calving sires for bulling heifers as we calf all the heifers down at two years old. We try to source heifer calves that’s born early as I maintain if you get a calf that’s early born I’ve found it’ll pass that on down the line to its progeny. I try to buy calves that’s 350 + kg around weaning time,then house them separately from other cattle and be very good to them all winter to ensure they thrive accordainly as we weigh them every few weeks to record weight gain.

Hobbies

I work for the council as a Lifeguard!
