Meet OUR Monitors
Here at Irish Hereford Prime, we believe that the best way to lead, is by example. As part of our farm support, we have initiated our Monitored Farm Programme. This programme will document the trails, tribulations and success of four of our members. Each farm is unique in its enterprise and farm type, giving a true insight into what it is like to be and Irish Hereford Prime Farmer.
FARMER 1: Sean and John Heffernan, Bushypark, Co.Galway
Sean and John Heffernan are a father and son duo, operating a calf to beef finishing system in Bushypark, Co.Galway. Despite the drainage history of the county, the Heffernan’s have considerably dryer land. With a high level of technical knowledge and experience between the pair, they manage a tight ship in the City of Tribes.

Farmer 2: Proinsias Creedon, Clondromid, Co. Cork
Proinsias has a store to finish operation under heavy soils in Clondromid, Co.Cork. Having undertaken colossal work with regards to reclamation and drainage, Proinsias adheres to a steady reseeding programme and reaps the rewards of grassland management, in the form of consistent annual grass growth.

Farmer 3: Aaron Deverell, Tullamore, Co. Offaly
Aaron operates a calf to beef and tillage enterprise in Offaly. A family of many trades, the Deverell’s are also the proud owners of an equestrian centre, which has developed alongside the farm itself. Aaron purchases and rears between 80 and 90 calves annually, and hopes to have the opportunity to finish most of the stock himself this year.
