Teagasc Farm Finance Newsletter – August 2012

Teasgasc have released their August 2012 Advisory Newsletter for the Irish agriculture sector. The newsletter includes both a mid-year review and outlook for beef, sheep, pig and cereal farmers. It is available as a PDF to download by clicking on this link  Farm Finance_Newsletter_August12

In summary,  Teagasc’s topline view on the sector states that, 2012 is likely to see an increase in margins on drystock farms. Margins on cereals farms will be dependent on harvest yields, while on dairy farms margins are forecast to decline. In the pig sector, financial margins are set to remain very tight until the end of the year.
