David Moore claims that he doesn't really consider his current 7.30am to 6pm daily routine on the farm to be much like real work.

"I actually studied Ag Science in UCD for a year before changing to a business degree in Waterford," he says.

"At the time, it was what I was more interested in. But after six years in sales, I used to dread Monday mornings.

"The longer I spent away from the farm, the more I realised I wanted to come back to it.

"We've a pretty good lifestyle here and, with a child now, I'm happy that I'm back on the farm.

"We are usually finished by noon on Saturdays and there's only one of us on milking and herding on Sundays."
