Stock Judging APB Nenagh

A stock judging competition and tour of the ABP Nenagh beef processing facilities took place with students from Gurteen Agricutural College, Co. Tipperary in November of 2019. The students were tasked with estimating the carcass weight, conformation grade and fat score of the 5 Hereford cattle on display. Putting into practice the tips provided by ABP Nenagh procurement manager Liam Chadwick on how best to select an animal for slaughter. Students were also given access to the chill room to compare the different conformation grades and levels of fat on the 5 carcasses post slaughter. A real highlight of the day was getting to see the boning out of a carcass into the various primal cuts of beef.
