If there's one message top sheep farmer John Curley had for those attending an open day on his farm recently it was how good grass management can cut your meal bills.

John held an open day on his farm in Four Roads, Co Roscommon, as part of the Roscommon Lamb Festival, and has been a participant in the Better Sheep Farm programme since 2009.
