Breeds of cattle raised in Ireland

“Knowledge of tradition combined with advantages of technology”

Ireland has a rich tradition of pasture farming and its breeding industry is still one of the most important industries today.
State-of-the-art technology and knowledge of tradition contribute to the growth of a large and healthy cattle population: in 5 million hectares of pasture live 122,000 herds, with an average of 53 heads of livestock per herd.
