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.
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’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.
