For the third year running, Irish Hereford Prime has joined forces with the Lions Clubs and the farming community, supportive organisations and many individuals in the fundraising project named ‘Hooves 4 Hospice’ as we continue to raise a sizeable sum of money for the much-needed Hospice Building Fund.
As last year we ran a Photo Competition, in conjunction with The Irish Hereford Breed Society which covered lots of categories from shows to calves, cows to bulls and cross bred animals and again this year we have some really special photos to share.
Each winning category photo, along with all of the finalists appear in our calendar. When you buy a calendar you are helping with this important cause and we appreciate your support and hope you enjoy all our lovely winners photos 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.
