    Donegal man is Biodiversity Young Farmer of the Year – Donegal Daily

    A Donegal man was last night crowned National Rural Network Biodiversity Young Farmer of the Year.

    Andrew McMenamin (32), from Castlefin, was announced as winner at the FBD Young Farmer of the Year awards ceremony in Cork.

    A member of Letterkenny Macra na Feirme, he works on his family’s farm, which is a calf-to-beef farm, buying from local dairy farmers and finishing all stock. 

    Andrew buys-in 30 calves per year and aims to finish as many as he can off grass before the second winter.

    The award is part of the FBD Young Farmer of the Year competition in association with Macra na Feirme and IFA.

    It hopes to draw attention to the importance of biodiversity, by celebrating young farmers who are farming in a sustainable manner by protecting and enhancing biodiversity on their farms.
