Nutribio and CAHL deliver ImmuBoost Calf Grower buckets to local school
Students at Coláiste Mhuire Buttevant were recently the lucky winners of five Angus calves, when they came first in a Certified Irish Angus Beef Schools Competition. Organised by the Irish Angus Producer Group along with its processor partners ABP Food Group and Kepak Group, the five winning students were Sharon Griffin, Annie Cronin, John Roche, Madeleine O Connell and Aoife Buckley. They all have an avid interest in agriculture and in livestock in particular. They initially had to submit a 200 word essay based on Angus Breed after which they were invited to present their findings to an interview board. They were announced as the winners in March last and were presented with the five calves by RTE’s Miriam O’Callaghan at the National Ploughing Championships last year.
Nutribio and CAHL recently delivered some free ImmuBoost Calf Grower mineral lick buckets to the students to help them rear their calves. ImmuBoost Calf Grower contains generous levels of protected trace elements and helps growing animals perform to their full potential while maintaining healthy immune function.
