Teagasc Announces Details Of ‘Virtual Beef Week’

Teagasc has announced that it will host a ‘Virtual Beef Week’ from Monday 6 to Friday 10 July, which is sponsored by FBD Trust.

In a statement, the group explained that the online forum was designed 'to demonstrate best practice and communicate the latest research results relevant to beef farmers'.

The Virtual Beef Week replaces the planned major Teagasc Beef 2020 Open Day, which was due to take place at the Teagasc Animal and Grassland Research and Innovation centre, Grange, County Meath.

Due to COVID-19 farmers will now have the opportunity to access the latest research and knowledge through their mobile phone, laptop or tablet, it said.

Teagasc said that ‘Building a Sustainable Irish Beef Sector’ is the theme for this virtual beef week, and it will feature two streamed broadcasts, BeefTalk at 12 midday and [email protected] at 7pm, each day from Monday to Friday.
