As the population of Irish farmers know this year, we suffered a severe fodder shortage throughout the country. The effects of which had a harsh damaging impact on the agricultural sector.

To help you prepare for the Winter months ahead we’ve designed a fodder calculator aimed at protecting farmers ensuring they have sufficient fodder this Winter. The fodder calculator will allow you calculate how much fodder you need based on your stock numbers and the length of your Winter. It will tell you if you have enough fodder or you require more.

Quite simply the fodder calculator will let you calculate how much fodder you currently have, how much you need and whether you have a shortage or surplus.
