THE Farrell family have been steeped in pedigree Hereford breeding for generations. Breeding the best, showing the best and buying the best is a formula that has seen the herd at Trillick-a-Temple, outside Longford town, become a byword for Hereford excellence.

The Trillick Herefords balance the characteristics of the traditional Irish Hereford of the 1940s with the current demands of dairy farmers for bulls that can breed progeny with size and scope for profitable beef.
