Macra is a tremendous organisation and plays a critical role in shaping policy to benefit young farmers as well as being a hugely important social outlet for so many people in rural Ireland. Generational renewal is central to the ongoing success of our sector, and I know this will be an important theme at the Macra AGM in May. We look forward to attending on the day and we wish delegates a successful event.”

Cavan Macra chairperson Enda Shalvey said, “Cavan Macra are very grateful for Lakeland Dairies sponsorship and are looking forward to welcoming everyone to Cavan on the 11th of May”.
