Last week I visited Mountbellew Agricultural College in Co. Galway for the first time. As my project is based here, it was important to see the farm and meet with the farmers. I met with the dairy advisor who showed me around the farm. I was able to see the milking parlour, where the milk is stored. I was also shown the fertilizer they use on the farm, as well as the windmill they have- although it is not yet up and running. My first trip out to Mountbellew was necessary, as now that I have a good understanding of the layout of the farm, I can begin to consider the locations in which I will place my CO2 and CH4 sensors.
