His neighbours in North Tipperary were mystified when they saw that Paul Slattery had put a Piemontese bull with his large herd of Holstein-Friesian cows in the middle of the prime mating season.

"I'd say that they were a few eyebrows raised all right," says Paul, who farms top quality dairy land at Clashnevin between Nenagh and Toomevara. "A few people asked me what was I at and warning me that I was going to ruin the herd."
