A rewarding career and lovely way of life

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.

Certified Irish Angus are low-maintenance animals that deliver premium returns. Short, stocky, and sweet-mannered, Angus cattle have an easy fleshing ability and a more efficient production cycle.

Some other benefits for our members include bonus payments, advice and support, and being part of a recognised brand.
