Students from Roscommon Community College, Ardnanagh, Co Roscommon, recently visited ABP’s stand at the BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition 2024 at the RDS in Dublin. This marks the tenth consecutive year that the company has been involved in the event.

ABP staff were on hand to discuss some of the benefits of beef with visitors. Attendees learned about some of the health benefits of eating beef, which is a source of protein and vitamins. The stand also showcased the sustainability credentials of Irish beef, and how its production supports communities all across the country.

This year ABP was sponsoring the new Sustainable Farming Practices category at the exhibition. The company has extensive experience with research in Irish agriculture including its demonstration farm in Carlow, which aims to help beef farmers reduce their carbon emissions.
