We had a great day at the RDS launching the herdbook. Thank you all members who made it and to the Minister for all his time.
The Herd book was officially launched by Minister for Agriculture, Simon Coveney, who has heaped praise on the society and their efforts in developing the herdbook:
“I am delighted to be attending the Launch of the Irish Pig Society Herdbook, which has been part financed by the Department of Agriculture. It is both historic and momentous for Ireland to be able to preserve, conserve, maintain and develop the genetic security of rare breed pedigree pigs, which previously was unavailable in this country. The Irish Pig Society Committee should be commended for their hard work in achieving so much, since their establishment in 2014, for Irish Pigs and the people who care for them.”
