There is a robotic feeding system on the farm

Located near Banteer in North Cork, Glen South Farm is a store-to-beef finishing enterprise with a strong emphasis on efficiency, sustainability and animal welfare.

Finishing over 1,500 cattle every year, mainly Hereford and Angus-types, the farm operates excellent grassland management along with some innovative methods of improving soil fertility.

During the housing period, cattle are fed home and locally grown crops of cereals, beet and maize.

Taking an innovative step into the future, a Lely Vector automatic feeding system was installed in 2014 at Glen South Farm - the first of its kind for beef cattle in Europe, in conjunction with a state-of-the-art handling system.

The farm is producing Bord Bia quality-assured beef to the highest standards and is achieving excellent technical farm performance.
