As the National Ploughing Championships enter their second day at Ratheniska in County Laois, there’s good news for one Kerry company this morning.
Causeway-based Dairymaster has scooped two top technology and innovation awards at the championships.
The company’s Swiftflo Commander won the innovation honour as well as the award for best agri software technology.
The device displays information about each member of the herd in the milking parlour to allow farmers deal with any problems.
Dairymaster chief executive Dr Edmond Harty welcomed the awards which were announced by Minister Richard Bruton.
