DIRECTORS & ADVISORS
MR. PAUL BOWES
Aged 37, Mr. Paul Bowes was educated at Kildalton Agricultural College where he received his Certificate in Agriculture. He took over the family farm in 1994 and has expanded it's core business, dairying, in the intervening years. Paul is Chairman of an Advisory Board of Glan Bia and actively involved in agricultural discussion groups on management and efficiency.
MR. PADDY ANGLIM
Mr.Paddy Anglim comes from a similar background. He is aged 37 and he took over the family farm in 1994. For generations, the Anglim farm has supplied milk to Centenary Co-operative and Paddy is now a member of it's Board of Directors and an active member of several discussion groups.
Paddy and Paul have worked as partners for years. Shortly after taking over from their parents they saw how necessary it was to bring down their costs and increase productivity by undertaking a joint building, machinery investment and herd expansion programme. Today they milk a combined dairy herd of 300 while maintaing the independence of the farm units. A joint venture in forestry is a natural development for such a successful partnership. They launched the Premier Irish Forestry Fund in 1999 and now propose to build on its outstanding success.
