Heavy rain in recent days has again hampered some farmers hoping to get animals out to grass.

Kerry IFA says Castleisland Co-op are expecting maize silage on Wednesday and Browne’s in Castleisland will have haylage this afternoon.

Rathmore creamery will have maize silage today and Killorglin creamery are expecting maize silage on Thursday.

Any farmer wishing to secure bales is again asked to put their names down in advance.
