It seems as if our CEO Barrie Turner has brought some of the nicer weather back with him from Uruguay as we now enter the middle of April. It has been very busy here in Pedigree House as we prepare for the upcoming Dungannon Show and Sale and we have reports from each day at the World Angus Secretariat that was held in Uruguay. Take a look at what’s been happening in and around the Society over the last 14 days!
