Kieran Flatley of Harrington Farms in Kilkelly, County Mayo talks about the improvement in their weanling calves over the last few years as a result of implementing a vaccination programme to protect them against pneumonia.
Earlier this year, Kieran applied for the BEEP-S scheme. As part of the scheme, farmers had to apply before 15th May 2020. When applying, they had to indicate what actions they would undertake. See figure 1 below which outlines the actions points of the scheme.
