Top Irish AI bulls are UK-bred

The top three Hereford AI bulls used in Ireland in the first half of 2020 were all UK-bred and produced 957 calves between them.

Making up this top trio were Solpoll 1 Kentucky Kid and Solpoll 1 Handsome by John and William McMordie, Co Down and Fabb 1 Northern Star by DRA Fabb, Cambridgeshire, all owned by the National Cattle Breeding Centre (NCBC).

Such has been the success of these sires, NCBC has purchased further UK-bred sires in the last year from the Solpoll, Netherhall, Barwise and Fisher herds.
