The Irish Hereford Breed Society and Irish Hereford Prime are delighted to be able to get the ball rolling with activities for the younger members of the breed by hosting various relevant online modules & tutorials for Young Hereford Breeders in the coming weeks while Level 5 Lockdown restrictions remain in place.
The aim is to hopefully hold a physical event or events if government guidelines allow later in the year and if it is safe to do so but for now we are using the resources that are available while keeping personal health & safety to the forefront.
The Society are currently organising modules for the next few weeks that will be relevant and benefit young breeders with simple and effective tips that they can all use on their homes farms.
To kick off; Shanon Kinahan – Professional Cattle Photographer will join the group on Monday 1st March at 8pm online to share top tips for taking a great photo of your animal and how to show them off in the best possible light. Shanon is no stranger to the world of cattle showing, being a pedigree breeder herself as well as photographing bulls and heifers at several pedigree shows, sales & on -farms around the country.
Following on from this, Alison Beattie from the Farm Wardrobe will be be joining the group on Monday 8th March at the slightly earlier time of 7pm to give a tutorial on on agri-promotions, advertising and branding. Alison will share top tips that everyone at home can use while using the ordinary & everyday resources to build a brand and promote onw livestock for sale while building relationships with buyers and keeping your name & quality product out there.
