2023 was a challenging year for farmers, both from weather patterns and from reducing prices for some farm enterprises.

For silage making, it was often a case of 'smash and grab' to take advantage of short weather windows to ensure reasonable silage was made.

However, despite this, there were some innovations, with some new food products launched and a new venue for Fermanagh County Show at Castle Irvine Estate, Irvinestown.
