Our Open Source™ code

Animal Welfare

The commitment of Irish farmers to the animals in their care and our outdoor grass-based milk production system ensures that the health and welfare of animals in Irish dairy herds sets a leading standard internationally.

Leaning green – powering our plants

Our teams are continuously assessing the latest technologies and processes to ensure our facilities become ever more efficient and achieve our vision for sustainability.

Our long heritage in quality grains

Tirlán has a long heritage in grains as the country’s largest buyer and user of Irish grains. Due to our strong investment in a state-of-the-art milling facility, we have positioned ourselves as a sought-after gluten-free oats provider which has delivered strong premium contracts for our farmers.

Our grass-fed cows

When it comes to our herds, our cows spend most of the year outside grazing on acres of rich and plentiful grass. Due to our temperate climate with abundant rainfall, in winter they move inside and enjoy a diet of grass ensiled from the fields during summer.

‘Farmers Have Hearts’ campaign

We have joined forces with key partners to undertake research and to help encourage the hardworking farming community to prioritise their wellbeing.
