  • Droimeann Cattle Society

    published in News

    A cattle breed society was established on 5/11/2015 dedicated to preserving the Droimeann cattle breed. Currently a programme of genomic testing is being undertaken as a means of scoring cattle in terms of breed purity and co-ancestry so that an effective breed improvement programme can be developed. The aim of the society is to promote the breed and assist existing breeders while attracting new members interested in the breed.

    Bertha’s Revenge Gin is aptly named after ‘Big Bertha’ the world’s oldest cow. Bertha was a Droimeann and lived near Sneem in the Kingdom County of Kerry until the ripe old age of 48. She is in the Guinness Book of World Records for being the oldest cow and also holds the record for having the most number of calves - an eye-bulging 38!
