Justin McCarthy became CEO of the Irish Farmers Journal in January 2014, having been appointed Editor of the paper in March 2013. Previously, Justin had held the position of Livestock Editor with the Irish Farmers Journal since August 2005. Having graduated with a Hons Degree in Agricultural Science in 2000, he spent almost two years working with Anglo Beef Processors (ABP) in Shrewsbury learning all aspects of the red meat processing sector. In 2004 he was awarded a Nuffield Farming Scholarship and travelled throughout Europe and New Zealand researching Profitable Beef Production from the Suckler Herd. On completion of his Scholarship he took up the role as Beef Specialist with Teagasc. During his time, he coordinated the Teagasc/Dawn Meats Partnership in the West of Ireland. Since joining the Irish Farmers Journal, Justin has travelled extensively throughout Europe, New Zealand and South America. His reports on Brazilian beef production have been well documented both in Ireland and across the EU political arena. In 2008 his articles claimed both national in international awards. Justin still plays an active role in the management of the family suckler beef farm in Co Down.
