Application forms for the 2014 Beef Data Programme (BDP) and Beef Genomics Scheme (BGS) have been posted to some 70,000 suckler farmers in the past week. Farmers need to ensure that both boxes are ticked on the form if they wish to participate in both schemes. If you wish to sign up to the BGS you must also be in the BDP. The forms must also be signed on the back.
The closing date for receipt of the application form is Friday 4April.
ICBF encourages all suckler farmers to sign up to these schemes as strong participation will be hugely important to the continued improvement of Irish beef breeding.
