Spring / Summer 2024 off season bonus launched

The Irish Hereford Prime beef producer group have announced a higher bonus of up to 25c/kg for all Hereford cattle pre-booked this spring and early summer period. The increased bonus will be available at all ABP Group and Kepak Group sites throughout Ireland for both qualifying steers and heifers.

  • Spring / Summer 2024 off-season bonus will be available from the 18th March 2024 to the 17th May 2024 (Week 12-20).

  • Only Hereford animals booked in with the producer group by the 23rd February 2024 will be eligible for the higher off season bonus.
  • Enter the number of Hereford cattle (heifers or steers) you will have to sell on any one week under the factory you would like to go to. Please be as accurate as possible.
  • Spring/Summer 2024 off-season bonus is limited to existing Irish Hereford Prime members only.
  • Bookings for each week are on a first come first served basis. As each week is filled the next available week will be offered.
  • Please complete the Bord Bia data release form and the ICBF data release form if you have not already done so. These forms are included with the Booking Form

We would encourage members to plan for the finishing period and book in Hereford cattle accordingly.

Failure to supply cattle that are pre-booked may result in a member being excluded from future initiatives.

Tom Barry

Tom Barry’s family farm is Baytown Park, Dunboyne, Co Meath. He is the third generation on the farm taking over from his late father, Thomas Barry in 2008 and keeps Hereford cross suckler cows as well as pedigree Hereford cows. Herefords are such a docile breed and as a part time farmer, with teenagers helping around the farm, it’s important to have a breed that’s easy to look after and handle. Tom’s farm is in the Green, Low-Carbon, Agri-Environment Scheme (GLAS) for the past 5 years, where frequently taking soil samples and the completion of a nutrient management plan are required.
