Progressive farming runs deep in Fiachra Liston's veins .

His grandfather, the late Ned Liston, was a pioneer of good farming and a keen co-op man who was a founder member and chairman of the GVM Marts Group, the second largest livestock marketing group in the country.

His son, Aidan, has in turn handed down the same deep interest in the land around Ballyculleen, near Croom to the next generation.
