Mike runs a large fleet of machinery including a selection of John Deere tractors along with a Case and Fendt

Mike Cooney, Renny, Ballyhooly, Mallow, Co. Cork established his business in the early 1990s with little more than a tractor and lime spreader.

Through careful management and a “little bit of luck", he has built one of the strongest agricultural contracting firms in 'rebel county'.

Cooney offers services including slurry spreading, lime spreading, ploughing, sowing and combining cereals along with silage harvesting of grass, whole crop and maize.

Mike runs a large fleet of machinery including a selection of John Deere tractors along with a Case and Fendt, with a belief that each tractor in the yard has "its qualities at different jobs".
