It was a great day had by all at the Munster Branch Hereford Youth day on 19th June on the farm of the O’Connor family, Clouncagh Herefords, Limerick.
Lot’s of great information was relayed on the day from;
- Eoin Lynch (Droumdaniel Herefords) & Michael Barrett (Gurtaleen Herefords) who gave a grooming & clipping demonstration to the group.
- Gene Lynch (Droumdaniel Herefords) & John Holloway (Gageboro Herefords) who gave a demonstration on judging cattle, choosing cattle for Pedigree breeding and choosing cattle for selling into the dairy herd.
- Tennyson Egar from Irish Hereford Prime, who gave a demonstration on the cuts of beef and their value along with providing beef for the barbeque which John Lynch kindly cooked.
