Jagoe is CEJA vice-president
Former Macra na Feirme president Alan Jagoe has been elected vice-president of CEJA, the European Council of Young Farmers. It is a two-year term.
CEJA is made up of 30 national organisations from the EU-27, representing 1.8m young farmers in Europe.
The move follows Mr Jagoe's successful term as Macra president, during which he hosted a successful Macra/CEJA Young Farmers conference in Dublin in March, conducted studies and reports into land mobility and succession and fought to protect young farmers in the CAP reform process.
The 30-year-old farmer works in partnership with his father and brother in Carrigaline, Co Cork where they milk 170 cows. Macra president Kieran O'Dowd congratulated Mr Jagoe on his role.
