The finalist teams will receive five Angus cross calves per group at a prize-giving ceremony on May 18 at Balmoral Show. They are embarking on a programme with ABP that will see them developing skills and knowledge across the beef supply chain from farm to fork.

This will culminate in the sale of their Angus cattle to ABP with the net profit shared out amongst their group.
