High Quality Grass
Ireland also has one of the longest grass growing seasons in the northern hemisphere. The advantage of a long grass growing season is bestowed on the country by virtue of its island location on the western edge of Europe, with a temperate climate, plentiful rainfall and rich, deep soils.
A natural supply of water from the rain and ground provides sufficient water for agricultural purposes, therefore there is no need to irrigate the land. Ireland gets an average of 1,750–2,400mm of rainfall per year, ensuring optimum grass growth from February to November that will meet beef herd requirements.
