His wife Lorraine agreed to sell and they rented a house and were then able to buy the 16ac and begin raising heifers for sale for beef. From there they worked their way up to a herd of 28 Limousin cows. My attitude is if you don't chance your arm, you will gain nothing.
Sign Up. From the building work he came into contact with farmer Tom McDonald, who was looking to take a step back from dairy farming. He had sold his cows after a fall from a ladder on the farm. Tom and Jamie considered forming a beef partnership, but the finances weren't sufficient to allow Jamie give up his day job. At that point, Tom decided to rent Jamie a 26ha farm at Grange, outside Tullow. The farm was soil sampled to see if it needed investment but it was indexed 3s and 4s. The next step were many drafts of a six-year plan with Teagasc advisor Eamonn Grace.
They then approached the Department of Agriculture to run two herd numbers out of the yard as Tom hasn't quite retired and has continued to rent ac nearby that he raises beef cattle on and they are overwintered in the yard.

However, they felt the "pinch" in and last year when milk prices dipped and he began milking at 5am to go back to work doing groundswork for the day to earn some money.
