The latest bulls available through the Irish Hereford BIS are attached below. Straws are available at €25 each or 10 straws for €200.
The Hereford Breed Improvement Scheme was first introduced almost 40 years ago. Set up as a revolving fund with a subscription of £25 from each participant at the time. The scheme has provided an opportunity for smaller herds in particular to have greater access to and a choice of bulls and semen from Ireland and across the world.
Potential sires are identified and semen purchased with a view to providing the best possible genetics at minimum cost to scheme members. Society members not currently participating in the scheme can join for a once off payment of €65.
The Breed Improvement Committee are continuously on the look out for new and improved genetics for inclusion in the scheme. Semen of bulls in the most recent brochure is, in most cases, available for export. Please allow 2 – 3 weeks for delivery of semen.
Please complete our Breed Improvement Scheme Order Form to become a member.
