Robert McCullough, Head of Agribusiness at Danske Bank commented: “Danske Bank are delighted to sponsor the Northern Ireland Aberdeen Angus Club’s herds competition which will once again be highly contested by some of NI’s best pedigree breeders.

“The breed continues to develop to fulfil the commercial requirements of today’s market place by adding value to both dairy and beef enterprises which has been reflected in the all time high registration levels. Good luck to all entrants and we look forward to meeting the winners in due course.”
