Pink silage bales are set to be a common sight once again in the countryside this summer as farmers around Ireland are being encouraged to buy the eye-catching pink silage wrap to help raise funds for Breast Cancer Ireland.

Commenting on the initiative, Niamh, who works as a business manager with Glanbia, said; “Breast Cancer has touched the lives of so many farming families and as a sports person I’m delighted to support Glanbia’s Pink Bales campaign along with the many fantastic initiatives Glanbia partake in for Breast Cancer Ireland. Farmers get the chance to raise funds that support pioneering research efforts across Ireland for Breast Cancer whilst raising awareness of good breast health amongst women of all ages”.

Farmers around Ireland are being encouraged to get behind the worthy cause. For every roll of the limited-edition pink Mastercrop Agristretch silage wrap purchased across all Glanbia Agribusiness and CountryLife branches as well as online on, a donation will be made to Breast Cancer Ireland.

More than €25,000 has been raised in the last three years from Glanbia’s #PinkBales campaign for Breast Cancer Ireland.

The limited-edition pink silage wrap is available from Glanbia’s 53 branches and online at Farmers are encouraged to share photos and videos of their pink bales on social media using the hashtag #PinkBales and Glanbia Agribusiness will award a range of prizes, for the best.
