This 2 year calf to beef programme was met with great enthusiasm by local farmers and their families and it just happened to be a novel way of raising club funds.

J Grennan and Sons, Birr have kindly sponsored the milk replacer to rear these calves which is greatly appreciated by both the club and the farmers.
