Irish Rare Breeds Conference 2019

The 3rd Irish Rare Breeds Conference will take place on the 16th to 18th of May 2019 in the GN Mulranny Park Hotel, Mulranny, Co. Mayo.   The Conference is being organised by The Old Irish Goat Society, based in Mulranny in association with the Irish Rare Breeds Society and supported by the Department of Agriculture, Food & the Marine.

Ireland’s rare breeds are a fundamental part of our farming and food production sector, they are living heritage and an important facet of our biodiversity. Rare Breeds have an important role in sustaining rural communities, through food production, artisan foods, tourism and conservation grazing.

Gene variation offers enhanced resistance and adaptation traits in a time of farming intensification and climate and social change.
