Access Credit Union: Proud Sponsors of West Cork Young Businessperson of the Year!
Access Credit Union is proud to have sponsored the West Cork Young Businessperson of the Year category at this year's West Cork Business & Tourism Awards. These awards, presented by The Southern Star in partnership with Cork County Council, recognise young business owners' hard work and dedication in the West Cork region.
We are thrilled to have had the opportunity to support the next generation of entrepreneurs and small business owners. At Access Credit Union, we believe in empowering our members to reach their full potential. We are proud to be a part of an event celebrating the achievements of young business leaders in our community.
This year's winner, Tim Casey of Cork Grassland Services, offers a range of services to dairy and beef farmers in the Cork region, including grass measuring, farm mapping, soil sampling, and silage sampling. Tim and his team take the stress out of grassland management and ensures that farmers are up to date with the latest industry standards.
Due to new nitrate derogation regulations, all farmers in derogation will be required to complete a minimum of 20 grass measurements per year in 2023. This new development has led to a surge in new clients for Cork Grassland Services, who are hoping to measure close to 400 farms per week this year.
Tim provides farmers with a comprehensive overview of their farm's grass supply based on his measurements' results. This information allows farmers to make informed decisions about their grassland management, including the type and amount of supplementary feed needed and when to cut surplus grass for silage.
By optimising their grassland management, farmers can maximise milk production and increase efficiency on their farms. Tim's services help take the stress out of grassland management and ensure that farmers are in compliance with the latest industry standards.
We are excited to see the impact that Tim's business will have on the local agriculture industry and wish him continued success in the coming year.
Access Credit Union offers a range of Business Loans, including Cultivate Farm Loans, to help small businesses and farmers grow and thrive. We are proud to support the local agri industry and are committed to providing our members with the financial tools they need to succeed.
We would like to extend our sincerest congratulations to Tim, and his fellow nominees, Aisling Vaughan, holistic lifestyle and mindset coach, and Aaron O'Sullivan of Bantry Bay Boat Hire for the West Cork Young Businessperson of the Year award. Your hard work, dedication, and entrepreneurial spirit inspire us all.
