BEEF2022 took place on Tuesday 5th July at the Teagasc, Animal & Grassland Research and Innovation Centre, Grange, Co. Meath. Get information from the event below.  

Irish Beef Sector

The beef sector remains one of the most important contributors to the national economy in Ireland, supporting in excess of 70,000 beef farmers with an export value of approximately €2.5bn. It also contributes approximately 10,000 jobs across processing, distribution and transport in predominantly rural areas. The level of domestic spend has a huge multiplier effect on the overall economy and is a key part of the sector’s importance to regional development. Its strengths lie in its pasture-based production systems underpinning its strong sustainability credentials and it is well-placed to meet the increased global demand for beef.
