|NEW BREED DEVELOPMENT OFFICER
Nevan McKiernan was appointed as the new Breed Development Officier for the Society a few months ago. Nevan comes from just outside Ballinagh in Co. Cavan. He is 24 years old and has a very strong background in breeding pedigree cattle. He has been involved in the family business since a young age and has hands-on practical experience in producing high quality livestock for sale.
In 2011 he graduated from Dundalk Institute of Technology with an Honours Degree in Sustainable Agriculture. He was then awarded a Walsh Fellowship Masters through the Teagasc/UCD Agricultural Innovation Support Programme and has recently finished working in Ballyhaise Agriculture College. One of his primary responsibilities in this role was to provide lectures in Beef Production and Animal Science.
Nevan will work with both pedigree and commercial farms in his role to drive and develop the Charolais breed in Ireland and maintain its No. 1 status as the breed choice for Irish weaning and beef producers. He hopes to meet as many members as possible throughout 2014. If you wish to contact him please do so through the Charolais office on 01-4198050 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
