Irish Angus Producer Group farmer members discuss benefits of farming as a career
Ireland boasts an incredibly successful agri-food industry, recognised worldwide for bringing the highest quality produce to market. At the heart of this success story are the primary producers of our food, our farming community. However, farming as a career choice is increasingly challenged by industries such as technology which are often seen as more attractive propositions for younger people.
The Irish Angus Producer Group has over 9,000 members in Ireland who supply the country with the highest quality Certified Irish Angus Beef which is sold in Ireland under the Tesco Finest brand. We talked to three member farmers to get their views on farming as a way of life and how young people could benefit from getting involved.
