Hereford cattle have been part of my farming system since 2017, although I have experienced them throughout my life. Their docility and fleshing ability are what prompted me to make them part of my own farm. I have always been amazed by their docility, it makes it so much easier to manage them on a daily basis. They are also known for their vigour another reason why I farm them, they are a hardy breed and adapt well to the elevation of my farm.
I am a part time farmer which allows me to fulfil my role as Strategic Account and Operations Manager with Irish Hereford Prime. In 2006, I graduated from UCD with an Agricultural Science Degree, providing a scientific perspective to compliment my practical experience. More recently, I have gone on to complete a Diploma in Leadership for the Agri-Food Sector at UCC.
I love being able to bring my farming experience and expertise to a role such as this, seeing the benefits of what our Producer Group was set up to do, coming to life and benefiting our farmer members and our commercial partners.
