Call for entries as European Angus launches 2013 Steak Tasting Competition
14th January 2013
It’s that time of year again with the European Angus Cattle Society issuing a call for entries in the 2013 EACS Steak Tasting Competition which aims to find the best steaks in Northern Ireland.
This is the third year that the Society has staged the competition and European Angus Secretary Harry McGaffin is hopeful that it will be even bigger and better than previous years.
“We have had tremendous support since the launch of the competition in 2011 and we hope that trend will continue,” explained Harry. “We are again inviting entries from anyone involved with the beef industry sector – farmers, butchers, processors and retailers.
Tastings will again be carried out at CAFRE Loughry Campus, Cookstown during February 2013, week commencing Monday 25th February, with the winners being announced at a Special Awards Evening and Dinner which is being held in Tandragee Golf Club on Saturday, 16th March, 2013.
“Those entering steaks in the competition will participate in the blind tastings while once again we hope to engage various Young Farmers’ Club members in the blind tasting of the sausages and the beef burgers,” continued Harry.
Competition cost is £15 per entry and entry forms are available from the European Angus Cattle Society, telephone 07715 584 887 or log onto www.europeanangus.co.uk where entry forms are available for download.
