A major Beef Open Day organised by Teagasc is to take place on June 26th at Grange in Dunsany, County Meath.
A spokesperson for Teagasc has said:
“There will be something to be learned by all cattle farmers at this beef open day in Grange in June, from suckler beef producers to those specialising in dairy calf to beef systems.”
“€nhancing Technologies” is the theme of this year’s event which will highlight the technologies that will help underpin the future profitability of the beef sector.
Technical updates will be provided on how to exploit superior genetics, improve performance from pasture and plan your herd’s health.
Speaking at the launch of the Open Day in Teagasc Grange, Professor Gerry Boyle, Director of Teagasc, said:
“The beef sector is among the most important Irish indigenous industries. Total production increased by 4.5% to 615,000 tonnes in 2017.
“Beef exports in 2017 were worth €2.5 billion, representing a 65% increase in value compared to 2010. BEEF2018 will be a day not to be missed by anyone with an interest in the Irish beef industry.”
