Opportunity to Earn €150 per Carcass Bonus on Your Beef Cattle

Aberdeen Angus Producers Ltd presentation hosted by Rural Enterprise Skillnet in St. Mary’s Parish Hall, Stranorlar on January 20th 2014 at 7.30 pm

Angus cattle have long been synonymous worldwide with beef of the highest quality, recognised by retail butchers, master chefs and discerning consumers.

Angus, as a brand name, is probably unique in agriculture for its recognition both as a traditional beef cattle breed name and as a hallmark of the finest quality in butchers’ shop windows and on gourmet restaurant menus.

These hardy black cattle have long endeared themselves to farmers for their easy breeding qualities, docility of temperament and ability to thrive and mature early on simple, natural, home grown fodder. Most importantly for the consumer, the “marbling” and texture of Angus beef ensures its natural succulence, tenderness and flavour without the expensive, forced and often unnatural feeding required for producing beef in other breeds.

Basically all you need are suckler cows served to an AA bull, keep calves to beef and you could earn a bonus of up to €150.00.

General Manager of the Aberdeen Angus Producer group, Charles Smith will make a presentation on the requirements and opportunities for potential members of the Angus producer group.

As member of the producer group you will be part of a low cost production system which produces a beef animal required for the Irish market (and easily meets market specification). The producer group has direct links with key Kepak and ABP procurement managers who require a constant supply for Key Irish super market customers.
