Local students exhibit in Irish Angus Beef Schools Competition



Groups of students from Abbey Community College, Boyle and Roscommon Community College, Lisnamult were among 28 groups who exhibited their project ideas for the Certified Irish Angus Beef Schools Competition to a panel of judges in Croke Park recently.

  Organised by Irish Angus Producer Group, ABP and Kepak, the initiative challenges students to rear a number of Irish Angus Cross calves for 18 months until their slaughter as part of their Leaving Certificate Agricultural Science project.

  The five schools who have demonstrated the best understanding of the project will be announced during April and will be presented with their calves at the National Ploughing Championships in September 2018.
