Beef Summer Tour 2020


Event Date: Wednesday 29th of July 2020 11:59:59 PM
Event Location: Down, Meath, and Kildare


As a consequence of Covid restrictions, the 2020 IGA Beef farm walk is taking a slightly different approach for 2020 where we are inviting each of you to relax and enjoy revisiting three of our previous host farmers through a virtual, online showcase.

This year on the week beginning 27th July, we will be releasing a selection of video footage through this website and across our social media channels (Facebook and Twitter ) where we will be revisiting three of our previous host farmers; Paul Turley our host farmer from 2011, farms in Downpatrick, Tom Halpin is farming in Co. Meath and hosted the IGA beef event in 2017 and the O’Connor family partnership from Kildare were our hosts in 2018.

Thus far 2020 has thrown each of us many challenges, but we will bring you a snippet of how each of these farmers and their farming systems have progressed and changed since we last visited them. I am sure you will find it very interesting to see how these three excellent farms have changed and developed in order to cope with the challenges that face beef farmers, and to get their views on where they see their farm going over the next few years.
