Cow Boy Boots and Stetsons was the order of the day for over 200 of Dunbia’s supply farmers as they attended a ‘Harvest Hoolie’ held at Dobson’s Farm.

The craic was mighty, with a surprise guest appearance from none other than May McFetridge who brought the roof down with her usual banter. No-one was left safe!

After a fantastic steak BBQ, Two More Heros provided the music for the jiving a much-needed exercise after such a scrumptious meal.

Speaking after the event, William Allister Livestock Procurement Manager for Dunbia NI said, “It was a fantastic evening where we had the opportunity to thank our local supply base of farmers for their loyal support, and work together to give something back to such a worthwhile cause ‘Marie Curie NI’.

Can I publicly thank once again those farmers who have supplied Dunbia over the years and trust they will continue with their support as we enter into a new chapter in the life of Dunbia, a JV with the Dawn Group. We look forward to the future where together with all our stakeholders we endeavour to grow the business.”

He continued: “A special mention of thanks is also extended to The Loft, Two More Hero’s, Dungannon District Council, Dunbia’s Maintenance team and not forgetting my own Procurement Department” as one of them once said “I love it when a plan comes together”.
