Provita Animal Health had the pleasure of hosting a group of Norwegian beef farmers. During their time in Northern Ireland, the Norwegian visitors had the chance to see several different farms that use Provita products giving them the opportunity to see the products in action. Those that visited from Norway highlighted the differences in the Norwegian agricultural environment and that of Northern Ireland. Whilst the overall annual GDP of agriculture in both countries works out at roughly 2%, the percentage of the land cultivated in the two countries is very different. Norway has only 3% of the land cultivated, due to the cold climate, thin soils and mountainous terrain, whereas 78.8% of Northern Ireland’s land is under cultivation for grazing, crops, forestry and fruit.
