Irish Black Bulls reach their moderate mature frame structure at two years of age and often perform until nine or ten years old. In the bulk of other beef breeds, bulls can take years to reach mature frame structure and then, at that point, they are simply too big to continue using. In addition, Irish Blacks high fertility trait allows a breeding ratio of one coming two year old bull per 50-70 females to be bred in the herd. This high fertility coupled with longevity means fewer bulls purchased per herd. For a commercial producer fewer bulls lowers bull expenses, improves ease of bull management, and most importantly -- adds up to offer HIGHER PROFITS! Irish Blacks are the best buy for producers in today's market.
