Monday 19th December: The application process for the next installment of the Certified Irish Angus Schools Competition closed in the last few weeks, with the number of entries rising once again from secondary schools across the country.
The number of students applying continues to grow each year with nearly 600 students applying to the competition in 2022.
Even with the increase in the number of entries over the last few years, the standard of applications continues to improve with students presenting very well-researched topics. This research looks at areas such as animal genetics, technology use on farms, and increasing consumer awareness of quality beef.
72 lucky groups have been selected to go through to the interview stage of the competition in mid-January. They will compete for a place in the next round of the Certified Irish Angus Schools’ Competition exhibition in Croke Park and will be one step closer to winning 5 Angus calves of their own.
