Millstreet CS students success in Certified Irish Angus Producer Group competition

The Certified Irish Angus Producer Group runs an annual competition for schools, where students do a project to raise awareness of the Angus beef brand. Michael O’Keeffe and Béibhinn Moynihan (Transition Year) have produced a three-minute video with information on Angus cattle, the sponsors (Kepak, ABP and Certified Irish Angus Producer Group) and how the brand can be promoted ( Michael and Béibhinn are now through to the semi-final where they will be interviewed on their work and research to date. Success here means they will receive five Angus calves to raise and finish. 

Michael and Béibhinn both come from farms and study Agricultural Science in Millstreet Community School, and are developing their interest in the agricultural industry through this project 

This exciting competition challenges students to rear five Angus calves over eighteen months while completing a research project. The initiative aims to promote the Certified Irish Angus brand while educating students about the care and attention required to produce quality beef for consumers. 

Each group also benefits from the proceeds raised through the sale of the animals at the end of the competition. The overall winners also receive a bursary towards further education.

Eily’s Report – 20th April

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my weekly report.

The weather is pleasant and there is a good feeling  in the air.

The vice-like grip of Covid19 is beginning to loosen a little and we are only waiting for the moment when it’s shackles can be put away for good. The people at the top who have herded us for the past year and a half must be feeling that it was all worthwhile. No doubt they came in for a lot of slack, and when you think of it their task was enormous, almost impossible. It was their job to put a stop to a world gone mad. We had reached heights that surpassed anything the world had ever seen before and yet were we happy. No not really. There was pressure on everybody to be even  better, the less well-off spent all their time trying to catch up with the  ones who got rich quick. In spite of all the affluence, we still had poor people but their plight could hardy be seen. There was no-one to say, stop you have enough. A rise in pay or status, meant that you had to have a bigger and better house, a more expensive car yet another foreign holiday every year, all of which landed you down even worse off than you were before getting that well paid career which was going to tick all your boxes. The humble wage-earner was better off in the end because every penny had to be watched ,big expenses had to be avoided and the simple life turned out to be the right one after all.
