Beef2022 Open Day

Event Time -
Venue Teagasc, Grange, Dunsany, Co. Meath
Supporting Sustainable Beef Farming

We are delighted to invite all beef farmers and stakeholders in the Irish beef industry to BEEF2022, on Tuesday 5th July at the Teagasc, Animal & Grassland Research and Innovation Centre, Grange, Co. Meath.

The theme of this year’s event is ‘Supporting Sustainable Beef Farming’. There are significant challenges in relation to overall profitability, market disturbances, CAP reform, climate change policy and input price rises, however, the market for grass-fed beef as a high quality, sustainable human food protein source is strong.

Pictured at the official launch of the Teagasc Beef2022 Open Day, planned for Tuesday, 5th July, at the Teagasc, Animal & Grassland, Research and Innovation Centre, Grange, County Meath, and sponsored by FBD Trust were: Professor Frank O Mara, Teagasc Director ; Paul Crosson, Teagasc Beef Enterprise leader; Michael Berkery, FBD Trust; Pearse Kelly, Head of Teagasc Drystock KT department along with staff members on the Beef2022 committee.

The focus of BEEF2022 will be on the application of technologies that will help beef farmers increase the profitability and environmental sustainability of their family farm businesses. Technologies in relation to grazing management, animal nutrition, beef genetics, reproductive management, animal health and farm planning will be essential to increase the competitiveness and sustainability of the Irish beef sector which will form the main focus of the day.

A key concern at present is the historically high input prices that have impacted on production costs for beef farms. The implications of these price rises, and strategies to mitigate their impacts on farm profitability, will be highlighted.

BEEF2022 is your opportunity to see first-hand the results of Teagasc’s comprehensive research and innovation programme and to meet Teagasc research, advisory and education staff.

Teagasc acknowledges with gratitude the support of FBD Trust who will be available on the day to meet attendees.
