Next Gen Herefords Youth Programme are hosting a number of events in the coming weeks for all young Hereford breeders & enthusiasts aged between 16 and 30 years of age (attendees do not have to be registered Hereford breeders or connected to a pedigree herd).
The first day will be held on Saturday 24th July 2021. First on the agenda is to visit the Irish Farmers Journal THRIVE Farm in Cashel, Co. Tipperary at 10am. There the group will be given a tour of the farm by John Hally (farm owner) and a run down on the research being carried out there and the results so far by Declan Marren (IFJ Journalist).
The group will then move onto the Pedigree Hereford and commercial farm of the Scott Family in Co. Laois. Here, there will be a stock judging demo for breeding cattle and a look at what is involved when choosing bulls & AI to use on Hereford cows & heifers. Irish Hereford Prime will also be present on the day.
Lunch will be provided on the day and participants are welcome to attend one half of the day if they are not free to attend the entire day.
