Celebrations planned for European Angus Open Day and Young Handlers’ event
19th August 2013
It’s celebration time for European Angus Cattle Society members and friends as it stages its annual Young Handlers’ event and Open Day this Saturday, 24th August.
“The inaugural event was held last year to launch our beef scheme and one year on we, in association with our supply chain partner, Hannan Meats, have considerable cause for celebration having just been awarded 12 Gold Stars on five Euro Angus beef products in the Great Taste Awards, which have just been announced,” explained Secretary Harry McGaffin.
Once again the Open Day and Young Handlers’ event is being staged at Harry McGaffin’s farm at Ballymacanallen Road in Gilford.
A workshop will be held prior to the event to provide young Society Members with tips on handling techniques and on the grooming and clipping of cattle.
The Irish Beltex Club are taking a stand at the Open Day and will have sheep on display.
