Become a Member
Becoming a member of IHFA will add value to your herd. The process of joining is very simple and straight-forward. A member of staff will call out to your farm and complete the registration procedure. Herd owners choose their own ‘prefix’ or Herd name which is then registered exclusively as their brand.
If you wish to receive further information regarding becoming a member please contact our office at;
IHFA, Clonakilty, Co. Cork. Tel.: +353 (0)23 8833443 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org

A change in fee structure was approved at the last Board Meeting as follows:
Yearly membership – €40 effective from 1st January 2018
New Herd Prefix once off charge – €100, discounted if whole herd G.U. completed effective from 1st September 2017.
A Permission Form is an instruction from you to the Department of Agriculture and Food to make available a copy of your herd’s calf registration data and centralised movements monitoring system data (CMMS), to Irish Cattle Breeding Federation (ICBF), for the purpose of development work towards the implementation of a national cattle breeding database. The information will eventually be stored in this database.
