About this event

There are significant challenges in relation to overall profitability, market disturbances, CAP reform, climate change policy and input price rises, however, the market for grass-fed beef as a high quality, sustainable human food protein source is strong.

In keeping with the theme of BEEF2022 - Supporting Sustainable Beef Farming, the focus will be on the application of technologies that will help beef farmers increase the profitability and environmental sustainability of their family farm businesses. Technologies in relation to grazing management, animal nutrition, beef genetics, reproductive management, animal health and farm planning will be essential to increase the competitiveness and sustainability of the Irish beef sector which will form the main focus of the day.

A key concern at present is the historically high input prices that have impacted on production costs for beef farms. The implications of these price rises, and strategies to mitigate their impacts on farm profitability, will also be highlighted.
