“When you buy our certified heifers you can be assured of the authenticity of their Irish Black and Irish Red heritage.”
Deb Brown, Long Pines Land & Livestock
In developing the breed, Maurice Boney followed the lead of his teacher and mentor, the great geneticist Dr. Jay Lush of Iowa State University, in the belief that an unpredictable gene pool makes it impossible for beef producers to obtain consistent quality in their herd.50 Head of Certified Heifers Available Now
As crossbreeding and the benefits of heterosis have gained in popularity, it becomes even more crucial to maintain verified bloodlines. Beef producers expect predictable outcomes, and that depends on predictable genetics.
Irish Black and Irish Red genetics are known to produce highly fertile, well-balanced, calm animals with excellent performance traits. Moderate framed females sport strong maternal traits and produce vigorous calves with efficient growth and tender, well-marbled meat. It is the result of decades of purposeful line breeding and performance-based refinement.
IBCA takes strict measures to ensure every breeding animal sold under the Irish Black and Irish Red trademark has the genetic potential to exhibit those qualities.
Long Pines registered bulls and cows are purebreds, their DNA is verified, pedigrees are on file with the IBCA, and their progeny can be registered. We take great care in our breeding program to produce some of the best stock the Irish Black and Irish Red breeds have to offer.
