Irish report from European Angus Forum

The European Angus Forum, held this year in Portugal, saw a contingent of Irish breeders head out for the forum and herd visits. John Tait and Louis Byrne shed some light on their travels.

Along with delegates from across Europe, Canada and Mexico, we were welcomed on day one by Portugese Aberdeen-Angus breed secretary Paulo Costa and enjoyed catching up with faces, old and new, all keen to visit Portugal. View report >>>
