Loughgall farmer Matthew Brownlee was named 'Outstanding Farmer of the Year' at the CRTG Supplier Awards held in Manchester in September.

Matthew aged 24, who began a beef finishing and suckler enterprise in 2012, beat off competition from farmers across the UK to take the title; a fantastic achievement for a young farmer which highlights the positive future of farming.

Jim Dobson, Dunbia’s Chief Executive congratulated Matthew on his achievement: “Matthew is an exceptional young farmer who has changed the focus of the traditional family farm and turned it into a very successful beef enterprise in just three years and is now supplying Dunbia with over 650 prime cattle a year. He is extremely forward-thinking and progressive, constantly looking at ways to improve the profitability of his operation. He really is an Outstanding Farmer and I am delighted that he has been recognised nationally by The Co-operative Food.”
