Serving The Farming Community           

  • At McAleer Jackson, we highly value our farming clients, who are the mainstay of the economy in the local area. We can advise and help our clients from a position of understanding.
  • McAleer Jackson clients have access to two directors, both with personal experience of farming. Many of our staff also come from farming families. We are well aware off the issues facing the sector at the moment.
  • The firm has developed expertise across the breadth of the sector, since its inception in 1986.
  • In that time, we have helped a wide range of farming clients to improve their efficiency and profitability.
  • We maintain our own industry average statistics in respect of dairy farming, which include Gross & Net Margins, Productivity and Debt Ratios, as well as accessing DARD information, to help and inform our clients about the features of their own enterprise.
