Winter 2017 off-season bonus
A restructuring of our bonus scheme is necessary to match the seasonal supply nature of our Hereford cattle with the all year round demand for our Certified Irish Hereford Prime beef. We are moving to a new simplified off season bonus structure from Week 41, the 9th of October 2017. The same range of qualifying carcase weights and grades apply as before and in addition we are also rewarding the better grading carcases with an additional bonus top-up.
How it works:
- Cattle needed to be booked in with us by the deadline dates (October 9th 2017 for the Winter 2017 off season) on the Booking Form or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Bookings for each week are on a first come, first served basis and as each week is filled the next available week will be offered
- Tag number of animals need to be entered on the reverse of the booking form or please complete the ICBF form.
- Our bonus payments are outlined below and pre-booking is required for Week 44-52 to be eligible for the Winter 2017 off-season bonus. The standard bonus only will apply to all qualifying Hereford cattle if they are not booked in for the off season bonus.
