I looked into it around the time of the ploughing match last year, and the 'man in charge' here didn't want anyone telling him how to farm after all he's been at it all his life. ( I can see his point). but he was going to bring a cow to the factory the other week and was told that now they have to be Bord Bia Quality Assured. I thought the idea was that you would get an extra few cent/kg on the animal i didn't know it would coming in mandatory. Anyway i was wondering if thats the case with all the factories or just the one in kildare? if not, is the scheme worth it anyway?
