This week, the Farmers Journal has obtained the terms and conditions of the Beef Data and Genomics Programme: listen in as news editor Pat O'Keeffe gets the details from editor Justin McCarthy and livestock specialist Darren Carty.

Pat interviews Longford farmer Mike Magan, chairman of Animal Health Ireland; and Thomas Hubert talks to former Farmers Journal editor Matt Dempsey, who edited the 60th anniversary book "IFA: The Path to Power".

Finally, Irish Country Living's Ciara Leahy asks colleague Roisín Healy about her visit to the Co. Wexford farm that has just launched its own home-grown blackcurrant cordial.
