Bretts Sponsor Kilkenny Beef Seminar

On Monday 17th September, 2012 Brett Brothers were delighted to participate in the annual Teagasc Beef Seminar kindly hosted by Kilkenny Mart, Cillin Hill and jointly sponsored by Bretts and the IFA.  Managing Director James J. Brett said that Bretts were delighted to be able to team up with Teagasc, Kilkenny Mart and the IFA to bring such a wealth of relevant information to beef farmers. 

In his presentation James outlined the difficulties in the commodity markets associated with the drought and reduced grain yields in the U.S. and highlighted the reduction in yield in our own native harvest.  Heather Peppard, Bretts nutritionist, presented details on the current difficulties associated with formulating diets with the limited supply of raw materials that are available for this autumn.  The presentation is attached.
