Ifac Blarney to co-host Agri Seminar on "Growing Irish Agriculture in an Uncertain Future"

Ifac's Blarney office will co-host the "Growing Irish Agriculture in an Uncertain Future" alongside Muskerry Macra. The seminar will take place in the Abbey Hotel, Ballyvourney. Minister Creed and local farming experts will also be speaking at the event.

This Friday, September 28th, ifac will be co-hosting a seminar for local farmers in Co. Cork on "Growing Irish Agriculture in an Uncertain Future".

Speakers at the event will include the Minister for Agriculture Michael Creed, Brian Denn ifac Partner in the Blarney office, Pat Dillon, Head of Animal and Grassland Programme at Teagasc Moorepark and Michael Doran the Chairman of Irish Cattle Breeding Federation (ICBF). The seminar will be chaired by Alan Jagoe (Agri Aware Vice Chair and Macra past president).

Speaking in advance of the event the Brian Denn said; “This event will allow local farmers the opportunity to find out more about future trends in farming and to hear about the factors that will impact the upcoming CAP negotiations in 2020. Farmers are very concerned that the single farm payment is maintained in those negotiations and that in these difficult times they get all supports possible to help maintain and grow their farms. This event in the Abbey Hotel co-hosted by ifac will be of real interest to local, forward-thinking farmers who are focused on ensuring that they are up to speed on trends in farming in this time of great uncertainty as we face into Brexit and the winds of change that it will bring to Irish farms. I will be talking to those farmers present and offering advice on succession planning and a variety of tax matters that farmers care about. In the ifac Blarney office, we have a reputation for offering local farm families reliable financial, accountancy and tax advice for generations. We work hard to ensure that farmers are always anticipating what’s coming down the track and that their farms are well prepared for whatever’s next. The team here in Blarney is really looking forward to this event on Friday.“
