More than 220 acres of grass cuttings from the airfield at Dublin Airport is being made available to farmers, according to the Dublin Airport Authority (DAA).
With good weather conditions in place, grass cutting got underway this afternoon on the airfield at Dublin Airport. The grass is being donated to farmers in order to help alleviate the current fodder crisis.
A DAA spokesperson said the company was "delighted that the grass from our airfield is going to farmers who need it to feed their livestock." The grass at Dublin Airport is managed in order to deter birds nesting or feeding on the airfield and grass cutting is undertaken in a specific way so that airport operations are not affected.
The operation is being coordinated with the DAA’s grass cutting contractor and the Irish Farmers' Association (IFA). The grass is being donated free of charge and farmers seeking further information on the project should contact the IFA directly.
