Concentrate inputs represent a significant cost to sheep flocks in Northern Ireland. Provisional data from the College of Agriculture, Food and Rural Enterprise (CAFRE) Benchmarking Programme indicates that average concentrate costs for 2005-2006 were equivalent to 31 and 36 pence per kg carcass output for lowland and hill flocks respectively, with some flocks approaching 70 pence per kg (for example, up to 30% of final carcass value).
Opportunities to develop easier-care sheep systems through breeding and selection will be a key focus of two farm walks organized by AFBI Hillsborough, in conjunction with AgriSearch and the College of Agriculture, Food and Rural Enterprise (CAFRE), Greenmount Campus.
