Irish Hereford Prime have joined forces with the Lions Clubs and the farming community, supportive organisations and many individuals in a fundraising project named ‘Hooves 4 Hospice’ in order to raise a sizeable sum of money for the much-needed Hospice Building Fund.
Running for the second year the annual Hereford Photo Competition, in conjunction with The Irish Hereford Breed Society and Irish Hereford Prime. Covering lots of categories from shows to calves, cows to bulls and cross bred animals. And the final category of your favourite cut of beef.
Each winning category photo, along with all of the finalists appear in our calendar, such an important cause and a lovely way for our winners to be showcased across the year.
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.
