VIRTUAL COMPETITION – LIVE TO DEAD- IS A HIT WITH YFCU MEMBERS

Earlier last year the YFCU teamed up with red meat processor Dunbia Meats to create an exclusive Live to Dead Competition where members were tasked with matching beef carcases to live livestock, due to the popularity of the competition, the Association decided to run the competition using Lamb.

Once again, we are delighted to see great engagement with our Virtual Live to Dead Competition. We hope that this event allowed members to gain an insight into how to select lambs for slaughter and how lambs of differing grades look and kill out like. We look forward to welcoming members back to our processing facility in Dungannon where members will be able to put their theory into practice!’ Claire Windrum, Dunbia Group.
