Cavan farmer says fodder crisis hasn’t passed

A Cavan farmer says the fodder crisis isn’t over yet.

Patrick Owens says his land is still soft and there hasn’t been the growth that is needed to recover from the recent bad weather. He said that in almost 43 years of full-time farming, the extended winter of last year was the worst he had to deal with, and he is still feeling the effects.

Speaking on The Joe Finnegan Show, Patrick Owens said if the weather had picked up in March, he wouldn’t have the same trouble.
