We are delighted that Mr. T. John Vaughan’s book; ‘The Hereford, The Greatest Breed on Earth’ has arrived in Mullingar and is ready to send out. This 416 page X A4 book is a masterpiece which details where the breed began right through all of the developments, ups and downs that have happened to and within the breed right back as far as the early 1800’s and right upto today! It is the perfect learning point for breeders with a beautiful finish and all Hereford breeders will agree it is aptly titled.
It is nearly 60 years since John judged at the RDS in Ballsbridge and he also judged in Carrick-on-Shannon along with hosting and entertaining Irish Hereford breeders on several occasions over the years. John also sold his home bred stock to Irish breeders on occasion including; David Carroll of UDEL Herefords who bought ‘Vorn 1 Just The Job’ – who was twice Royal Dublin Male Champion and 15% of UK Herefords still carry his blood.
John passed away last December, just days before the book was due to be released from the publishers. Fortunately, John was satisfied he had completed his project before illness set-in and instructed the printers to produce his book: ‘The Hereford: The greatest breed on earth’ and this one certainly has the feel of being compiled by a true pioneer and stalwart of the Hereford breed.
