Did you know ?🍃

Certified Irish Angus is a sustainable beef breed, farmed with pride using traditional methods by small-scale family farms. Angus cattle today continue to enjoy a diet that is made up almost exclusively of grass which offers a reduced environmental impact due to the availability of home-grown feed.

The Angus breed also naturally matures early which results in fewer carbon emissions produced from each animal compared with other breeds. Certified Irish Angus continues to invest in and promote improved genetics ensuring that the Angus breed remains strong while producing even more efficient animals for our members.

We are leaders in accelerated genetics 🧬

Our Elite Breed Improvement Programme began in 2021 with the purchase of the exceptional bull, a Drumcrow Tribesman, in partnership with @dovea_

Certified Irish Angus members can produce superior Angus animals by using Tribesman’s genetics via artificial insemination (AI) . This will result in an increased weight for age that reduces emissions per kilo of beef produced.
