An Ardfert farm has made the shortlist for a prestigious award.

AN Ardfert dairy farm has had its high standards and hard work recognised after it made the shortlist for the National Dairy Council & Kerrygold Quality Milk Awards.

Florence and Caitriona McCarthy from Banna East, who are representing the Lee Strand Co-Op, will compete in the finals of the awards, which are designed to recognise the standard for excellence in dairy farming.

The farm is amongst 13 finalists who will now be put through an extensive judging process before a winner is announced on October 20.

They will be judged based on an inspection of milk quality reports and technical data spanning a full 12 month period; combined with best practice on critical areas such as sustainability, care of the environment, animal health and welfare and overall farm management.

The ultimate dairy farmer winner will be given €5,000 and will be awarded the coveted National Dairy Council & Kerrygold Quality Milk Award perpetual trophy.
