Three winners will receive trip for two to Ireland for the week of St. Patrick’s Day 2018

Ireland is known as “the land of a thousand welcomes,” and staying true to its roots, Alltech is upholding the enduring tradition of Irish hospitality by launching The Great Green Getaway. In partnership with KEENAN, an Alltech company, maker of the “Green Machine” mixer wagon, the contest invites American dairy farmers to enter for the opportunity to win one of three travel-expense-paid trips for two to Ireland in March 2018, coinciding with St. Patrick’s Day.

The tour destinations include a “how it’s made” tour of the KEENAN production facility in Borris, County Carlow, Ireland, a guided VIP experience at the new Pearse Lyons Distillery (opening summer 2017), visits to a host of high-performance Irish dairy farms and St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in Dublin City Centre.

“We are proud to work with dairy farmers around the world and provide technology to increase on-farm productivity and maximize feed efficiency,” said Robert Walker, chief executive officer of KEENAN. “We are looking forward to welcoming the contest winners to Ireland to show them our innovations while also celebrating Irish traditions.”

The contest opens June 28, 2017, during National Dairy Month, and the winners will be announced on Oct. 7, 2017, at World Dairy Expo in Madison, Wisconsin. The contest is open to U.S. dairy farmers who have 50 cows or more and are over 18 years of age.
