Athlone based father and son, Seamus and James Claffey, complete with James’ fiancée, Aisling, have been recognised for dairy farming excellence at the Aurivo Milk Quality awards.

The Claffey family received the award for Lowest TBC in Manufacturing Milk . A family farm since the 1900s, Seamus and James are fourth and fifth generation to farm the land in Athlone. They also have the help of Seamus’ mother Annie and wife Lesley. The family believe that sticking to a good wash routine and frequent servicing of equipment has been key to their success.

“The Aurivo Milk Quality Awards is an annual award programme which recognises standards of excellence in dairy farming. I would like to congratulate our eight Milk Quality Award winners, who continuously illustrated the highest quality of milk supply for both liquid and manufacturing milk. It is a privilege to honour their commitment, hard work and strive for excellence.

“Aurivo is very proud of its quality milk pool and committed supplier base of almost 1,000 suppliers in both the Republic and Northern Ireland. Our farming families’ incredible commitment and dedication allows us to produce the best quality milk,” Donal Tierney, Chief Executive of Aurivo, said.
