Strokestown students honoured for role in Beef Schools Competition

 

At an awards ceremony in Croke Park, Conor Murphy, Ciaran McManus and Dylan Cronin from Scoil Mhuire, Strokestown were honoured for their participation in the 2019 Certified Irish Angus Beef Schools Competition.

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

  The three students researched ‘The importance of planned production in beef farming’. The students designed a creative board game based on the popular Snakes & Ladders, and highlighted the challenges and opportunities that farmers can face in beef production. Having knowledge of the best route to take was a key takeaway from the game and the game layout also outlined the flexibility that farmers must have in adapting to their route. The students themselves faced setbacks which they had to overcome in the rearing of their Angus calves, due to unpredictable weather conditions.

  The group were one of five finalists selected to take part in the competition over 18 months which aims to encourage second level students to gain an understanding about the care and attention that is required to produce and market the highest quality beef for consumers. 

 

More lairage facilities needed in Cherbourg – IFA

 

 

IFA President Joe Healy has acknowledged the announcement by the Minister for Agriculture Michael Creed that capacity in lairage facilities in Cherbourg will increase to accommodate an additional 400 calves per day. However, he said more spaces are needed urgently.

  “IFA has been in regular contact with the two lairage operators in Cherbourg. The other operator is willing to increase his capacity by another 600 calves, but his premises needs approval from the French authorities to do this,” said Joe Healy.

  “We have IFA personnel on the ground in Cherbourg and we are talking directly to the lairage operators to try and create this extra capacity,” he said.

  “We have repeatedly asked the Minister to speak to his counterpart in France to ask the authorities in Cherbourg to work with both lairage operators to get approval for the extra spaces. We need to see far greater urgency from the Minister and the Department to resolve this crisis,” said Joe Healy.

  “The Minister seems to be claiming credit for these 400 extra spaces, but he must drive on and get the other 600 places on stream now,” he said.

  The IFA President said: “An IFA delegation including our Dairy Chair Tom Phelan, Executive Secretary Catherine Lascurettes and Livestock Chair Angus Woods visited Cherbourg in February. We have been in constant contact with both lairage operators since then. The extra space announced by the Minister does not come close to addressing the current export crisis facing farmers”.

IFA President welcomes vote on a fairer food chain

 

 

 

IFA President Joe Healy has welcomed the adoption by the European Parliament of new rules that will ensure the protection of European farmers against unfair trading practices (UTPS) in the food supply chain.

  The new European law builds on a proposal tabled by the European Commission and will cover agricultural and food products traded in the food supply chain, banning for the first time up to 16 unfair trading practices imposed unilaterally by one trading partner on another.

  The COPA and COGECA Group on the Food Supply Chain chaired by Joe Healy in his capacity as a COPA Vice President, drove the campaign on behalf of European farmers on retail dominance and Unfair Trading Practices (UTPs).

  “This is a positive result for farmers who have always been subjected to the whims of large retailers. The unfair trading practices to be banned include: late payments for perishable food products; last-minute order cancellations; unilateral or retroactive changes to contracts; forcing the supplier to pay for wasted products and refusing written contracts,” said Joe Healy.

  The IFA President acknowledged the work Phil Hogan, EU Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development has done to achieve this result.

We need a ‘Kerrygold’ brand for our beef

 

 

 

Deputy Denis Naughten has called for a ‘Kerrygold type’ brand approach on Irish beef. Speaking on the emergency Brexit law in the Dáil last week, Denis Naughten called for the establishment of a distinctive Irish brand for “certified grass-fed, extensively reared suckler beef” from Ireland that could command a premium price on key world markets.

  Denis Naughten highlighted the need to explore the opportunity to export live cattle into the UK in a post-Brexit scenario because the tariffs on live cattle could be significantly less than that for Irish beef exported as meat and could be the difference between survival and wipe-out for suckler farmers.

  The Roscommon-Galway TD, speaking in advance of the disclosure that Bord Bia are now considering such a strategy, said: “There is an opportunity to market that in a global market and get a premium price for it. That is what we should be doing and it should be the responsibility of Bord Bia to drive that forward with producers across the country”.

  Mr. Naughten has welcomed reports that Bord Bia are now looking to target key premium continental markets for Irish Suckler reared beef.

  He went on to say that “in a no-deal Brexit scenario it is imperative that Bord Bia puts plans in place to make British consumers aware of the positive attributes of Irish beef compared with beef produced in, and imported from, third countries such as the United States or various South American countries.

  “It is important that we point out to British consumers that 70% of the deforestation of the Amazon – the lungs of our planet – is to provide land for cattle ranches. Some 11% of the greenhouse gas emissions involved in food production is directly linked to food transportation.

  “Surely it makes far more sense to bring beef from Dublin to London, a distance of 464 km, than 11,000 km from Buenos Aires to London, a journey 24 times longer. The distance from London to Newcastle is the same as the distance from London to Dublin,” Mr. Naughten pointed out.

 

ICMSA: ‘Brexit and Broadband two separate issues’

 

 

ICMSA President Pat McCormack has criticised recent comments by Taoiseach Leo Varadkar regarding the impact a Brexit bailout for farmers would have on the Rural Broadband Plan.

  Mr. McCormack said that it was “very unfair and inappropriate” for the Taoiseach to link the two issues, which he said, were completely separate.

  “The reality is that Brexit-related losses will impact on the current Budget in 2019 while the Rural Broadband Plan is a capital project and is highly unlikely to have a major impact on the 2018 Budget outcome. 

  “Indeed, it is disappointing that the Taoiseach decided to effectively play one rural issue against another, which is unfair and should not be a factor in relation to rural broadband.

  “The reality is that Brexit will directly impact on farmers and it is completely appropriate that supports are made available from both the EU and our Government to support the sector during (what is) potentially a very disruptive period while the Rural Broadband Project is a hugely important infrastructure project which should be treated the very same way as the many Government funded capital projects in Dublin,” he said.

  Mr. McCormack added that pitting one issue against another was not the way to proceed and that both issues needed to be addressed “fairly and on their merit”.

IFA slams Madigan over March burning of gorse

 

 

IFA’s National Hill Farming Chairman, Flor McCarthy, has criticised the Minister for Arts, Heritage & Culture Josepha Madigan for not allowing managed burning of gorse to take place in March.

  “The Minister has failed to take account of how farmers manage their hill land responsibly and where land is burned it is done in a managed way.

  “Issues such as recent wildfires can be avoided if the window for burning included the month of March, which was enacted into law through the passing of the Heritage Bill last year.

  “The weather conditions for burning are not the same throughout the country and putting a blanket ban to burning in March this year is a retrograde step. It indicates a lack of understanding of the practical issues farmers face in managing their hill farms,” Mr. McCarthy said.

Local students visit in study trip on marketing of Irish beef

 

 

 

A group of agricultural science students from Roscommon Community College who are participating in the Certified Irish Angus Beef Schools Competition recently visited the headquarters of retailers Tesco Ireland and Albert Heijn to learn about the marketing and export of Certified Irish Angus Beef.

  The study trip, organised by Irish Angus Producer Group, ABP and Kepak, began with a visit to Tesco Ireland who have been involved in the production and promotion of Certified Irish Angus Beef for more than 21 years. The group then boarded a flight to The Netherlands to visit Albert Heijn, the Dutch supermarket chain who is a leading importer of Irish beef.

  The students were selected by a panel of industry judges to rear six Irish Angus Cross calves up until their slaughter in 2020. In addition to the rearing of calves, the students are undertaking the following research project: The Value of Irish Angus in Suckler Systems which will investigate the benefits of choosing an Angus bull including how output can be increased, coupled with environmental and animal welfare benefits.

  The initiative encourages secondary school students to increase their knowledge and understanding of the care and attention required to produce and market the highest quality beef for consumers and to apply the knowledge they learn in the classroom to a real-life setting.

  Each of the finalists will receive the financial benefit involved in the selling of the animals to the processors on completion of the project. The winning students also receive an additional grant of €2,000 for their further education.
