Clodagh Cavanagh gave an insight to Abbey’s history and where the company all began, where Abbey is now and where it hopes to go in the future. 

 

Sean Farrell discussed the importance of planning, budgeting, monitoring cash flows and taking early remedial action. He said “the Agri sector is a key area for the bank and they were keen to support farmers and help them to grow and overcome any financial challenges that they faced”.

Paddy McCarthy outlined winter feeding solutions, budgeting, using locally sourced value for money feeds and balancing forage quality with cow demands. Monitoring performance and taking remedial action on time.
