With fertile soils, a temperate climate and abundant rain water, Ireland has enviable natural advantages for farming the land to produce food, fiber.  Ireland’s climate is particularly suited for the growth of rye grass, an excellent and inexpensive feed for livestock. The Ceide Fields on the north Mayo coast contain the remains of a 5,000 year old Stone Age farming landscape.  Today, beef and milk production are the two most important farming sectors in Ireland, accounting for around 60% of agricultural output.
