Dairy Matters is a podcast bringing you closer to Ireland’s dairy industry. We explore the passion and commitment of Irish farmers, the challenges they face and the things they’re doing to make Ireland’s dairy industry more sustainable and fit for the future. We’ll also hear from sportspeople, nutritionists and cooks, talking about dairy’s role in a healthy lifestyle and a varied and balanced diet.
Episode 2: Cream of the Crop
In this episode, we talk to father and son team Michael and Alex McCarthy, Co Limerick dairy farmers and winners of this year’s NDC & Kerrygold Quality Milk Awards. They tell us about the changes to, and rewards of, dairy farming – its place in the community, its sustainability, about learning new skill sets and the fact that we’re all in it together and in it for the long haul.
