Irish Angus Beef Competition 2021

Posted on : April 13, 2021

Once again SGS sees TY students enter the Irish Angus Beef Competition. This year two groups have progressed to Stage 2 of the competition – two of a total of 50 teams selected from an overall entry of 450. In Stage 1 the entrants submitted videos presenting their projects. Group 1 (Alex Harte, Conor Creaven, Francis Ellison and Joe Attwood) explored Sustainability while Group 2 (Orlando Van Der Grijn, Ben Hayden, Gemma Baker and Nancy Ryan- Jones) chose to deal with Consumer Awareness. Having come through the initial stage, the SGS students progressed to Stage 2 on Tuesday 13th April, which was an interview with an expert panel including members from the Irish Angus Producer Group, ABP, Kepak and an Agricultural Science teacher. Five groups out of the 50 interviewed will receive 5 Angus calves in September, to be raised over the coming year. We wish both teams good luck in Stage 2.

During Easter, Our Irish Angus Beef finalists, currently in 6th year, completed their final interview  based on the 15,000 word final report. This interview was an hour long with a panel of judges and the girls are awaiting the result which will be announced in a virtual event in May. Good luck, girls!
