The Irish Limousin Cattle Society has secured a 10c/kg bonus for pedigree cows and stock bulls with Tipperary-based meat processor, Ashbourne Meats. The partnership will see the processor pay an additional 10c/kg on top of the base quote – on any given week – for these animals that meet a certain specification.
The bonus will be paid on pedigree Limousin cows grading R+ to U with a fat score 3- to 4+, and stock bulls grading E or U with any fat score. Farmers with these animals must present the animal’s pedigree cert on the day of slaughter to avail of this bonus; animals with certs presented after slaughter will not be eligible for payment.
