All Ireland Sheep Shearing Sponsor – Launch Website

XLVets Skillnet sponsor the All Ireland and All Nations Sheep Shearing and Wool Handling Championships 2019


The All Ireland and All Nations Sheep Shearing and Wool Handling Championships 2019 took place Saturday May 25th and Sunday May 26th in Cashel, Co. Tipperary. The event saw over 1,000 sheep on site over the weekend, with five shearing competitions held over the two days. The weekend attracted huge interest from farmers all over Ireland, as well as attendees from the local towns and rural community, with crowds exceeding 3,000 people.

XLVets Skillnets were delighted to be on board as a sponsor for the event. We used this as an opportunity to promote the launch of our new website www.xlvetsskillnet.ie which went live today May 27th. Our new interactive website allows users to sign up as a member immediately and gives free, 24/7 access to our online training – Agri Academy.

Agri Academy is an online learning platform created by XLVets to address the animal health training needs of livestock farmers. The goal of Agri Academy is to pool the knowledge and experience of the XLVets network and to translate that into practical, relevant and easy to watch training for farmers.

Modules are delivered by industry experts. Each module is broken down into easy to watch bite-sized videos which can be accessed from your PC or on the go through your mobile.

XLVets Skillnet is co-funded by Skillnet Ireland and our member companies. Skillnet Ireland is funded by the National Training Fund through the Department of Education and Skills.
