FIVE certified townies stand a chance of winning Angus calves for their school.

To do so, CBS The Green students, Michael Scanlon, Rory Ruttledge, Dara O’Brien, Dara Regan and Hugh Healy will travel to Dublin for the Certified Irish Angus Beef Schools Competition in Croke Park on March 16.

While there, the lads will will be quizzed on their knowledge of Irish Angus and efforts to promote it will be put to the test.

Il Forno insert final


If successful, the students will have full access to the calves while they are reared on the farm and will be allowed benefit financially from any future performance of the cattle.

Initial knowledge of cattle among the transition year group was limited, but they have expanded their minds greatly and are now in the final of the competition.

The national competition is about promoting Certified Irish Angus beef among farmers, retailers in the food industry and consumers.

Twenty schools in total make the final and will battle it out for five Irish Angus calves.

Only five out of the twenty schools will win the calves, and these schools will then do a project on Irish Angus beef and the various benefits of it, and will again show their ability to promote Certified Irish Angus cattle over other cattle breeds.
