Should Ireland offload its farmers to greener pastures?

Ireland is stashed full of farmers on grantfare, now it's been a while since those from Bogistan invaded Dublin and hurled stinky, bleaty crazed sheep at us...but it remains a worrying prospect
RTÉ Mobile - Two-thirds of farms not economically viable
The average payment per farm stands at just over €20,000 and makes up 81% of farm income.
Global interest in New Zealand town with too many jobs - Channel NewsAsia
Clutha District Mayor Bryan Cadogan said the South Island township of Kaitangata had more jobs than people, with a population of 800 but up to 1,000 vacancies, mostly in the thriving agricultural sector.
So would shipping out our surplus farmers, say town by town work?

Give a man a potato, you feed him for a day. Teach a man how to potato......Sidey's Ghost.

It's simple, really.

Good in theory...but our farmers only thrive in the Irish climate..

Nowhere else provides dinner at noon, hang sangwiches at 6 and constant opportunity to 'hit the diff'.

In the absence of these conditions, the farmers simply shrivel up and become Gardai.

Could we not just put a load out to pasture instead...?

I mean why the f*ckf am I, and other europeans, paying farmers to sit on their holes hoarding land for?

The OP thinks that anything west of chapelizod and south of Newlands cross is 'BOGISTAN'.

Like Donald Trump building a wall is his suggestion to keep out the muck savages.

If they could be got rid of altogether that would be even better according to this proposal.

Cyp, were you doing a line with Eagle?
Unfortunately an Irish farmer swept her off her feet. Farmer Bob (cYp calls him Farmer Slurry Breath) had all that lovely dosh from all those grants, to show a girl a good time!

So cYp does what any self respecting Piester does - He starts a thread.

Do they even be "suckin' diesel" in New Zealand? You're right, I don't think they'd survive given the conditions....

Most Irish farmers are becoming quite elderly.

They would hardly be suited to the heavy workload on giant NZ farms.

There would probably be mass mortality if they were forced to go work in NZ. Not that Cyp would care :rolleyes:

A country that doesn't grow its own food and have people willing to do so is a Country that is slave to others.
