Sheep 2023 preview - the largest dedicated sheep industry event of 2023
Darren Carty, Sheep and Schemes Editor from the Irish Farmers Journal, is on this week’s OviCast to talk about the Sheep 2023, an industry event which takes place in Gurteen Agricultural College on June 18th.
Darren explains where this year’s event is happening and the background to it. He also discusses the broad range of activities - including sheep shows, breed exhibits, trade stands and technical displays - that will be there on the day.
Darren highlights how this focused sheep event provides a shop window for exhibitors and attendees to interact and see what’s new in the industry. He talks about the various demonstrations that will run throughout the day from butchery and cooking through to shearing and sheep dog training demonstrations. Darren also describes the host of other activates that are on display on the day including the keenly contested Young Shepherd competition.
