At the National Ploughing Championships, RTÉ Broadcaster Miriam O’Callaghan met with St Aloysius College Carrigtwohill and presented them with the passports for the five Irish Angus Cross calves, which they will today bring home with them to rear as part of a unique secondary schools’ competition.

The Certified Irish Angus Beef Schools Competition, run by the Irish Angus Producer Group, along with its processor partners, ABP Ireland and Kepak, aims to encourage second level students to gain an understanding about the considerable care and attention that is required to produce and market the highest quality beef for consumers.

Teams from St. Louis Community School, Kiltimagh Co. Mayo; Moate Community School, Co. Westmeath; Sligo Grammar School; St. Aloysius College, Co. Cork and Castleknock College, Co. Dublin were selected following a competitive process earlier this year to receive the Irish Angus calves to rear for the next 18 months until their eventual slaughter in 2019.
