Agriculture & Rural Affairs
RDS Spring Agriculture and Forestry Awards
The RDS Spring Agriculture and Forestry Awards are a rare occasion in which farmers across all sectors come together to celebrate all they have achieved. The goal of the RDS Agriculture and Rural Affairs programme is to promote best practice and efficiency in farming to ensure farm household profitability and sustainability in Ireland. Livestock farmers, foresters and in future years, agri-entrepreneurs will come together to both celebrate their achievements and learn from each other.
With a prize fund of €22,000, the RDS Spring Agriculture and Forestry Awards celebrate and promote the principles of climate-smart agriculture. Building on a name from the past, but firmly focused on the future of the sector, the Awards will recognise the very best farmers, foresters and agri-innovators.
The 2019 RDS Spring Agriculture and Forestry Awards will take place in the RDS Concert Hall on Wednesday, April 24, 2019. To confirm your attendance please visit our online booking form.
RDS-Forest Service Irish Forestry Awards
The twin goals of promoting the economic and environmental benefits of good forestry and farming is the underlying motivation behind these Awards. All woodland owners and managers are encouraged to enter the Awards as all woodlands, large or small, are of merit. There are four categories which can be entered.
RDS Livestock Awards
The RDS Livestock Awards showcase the most efficient livestock producers in Ireland by rewarding and celebrating farmers combining the best science and best agricultural practices. These Awards build upon the RDS Spring Show which was known the length and breadth of Ireland for showcasing the best livestock in the country.
