The Truly Irish flag bearers locally declared themselves delighted to announce that one of their pig farms will be featuring on a new RTE documentary On Farm Live.
The programme which will air live on Monday April 4th at 7.30 pm will look at life on Parknageragh Pig Farm which is located here in Castleisland.
“The show, which will feature Truly Irish’s CEO Mike McAuliffe, is guaranteed to be insightful and surprising,” according to Mr. McAuliffe’s son, Shane.
Pig Farming Sustainable
“The documentary which aims to provide an insight into pig farming in Ireland will draw distinct attention to the pig practices and culture on Truly Irish farmers. Tune in to view our methods behind making pig farming sustainable again.
“At Truly Irish we seek to increase our approach to innovative measures. Recently, our feeding of seaweed extract, Laminaria, to pigs has harnessed some of the best health benefits possible. The feeding of seaweed causes antioxidants to be released into the pig while naturally boosting the immunity of the animal. This allows for a lower dependency on antibiotics.
What To Expect
“What we hope you gain from the programme is Truly Irish’s commitment to surpassing the ordinary. Innovation is key to our success and we strive to deliver a healthy product to consumers that can be traced back to farms that have high welfare as their priority. We are always looking forward to new technology and new methods that benefit our consumers and farmers.
“The documentary which is live will aim to education and enlighten consumers and individuals about the diversity behind our brand,” said Mr. McAuliffe.
Parknageragh House has its own wonderfully story of age and history. One of its many periods included a long association with Castleisland Coursing Club while it was in the ownership of the late Jack Prendiville.
