Forge Genetics is a discussion group of farmers based in the wider Munster area in Ireland. With a particular interest in Genetics/high EBI (BW), and genomic selection stock bulls. For the past two years as a group, Forge Genetics have a stock bull project on the go. They have brought in about sixty of the better bull calves within the group. These bulls are reared by a contract rearer and sold. They are sold as high EBI (BW), high health status (BVD & IBR negative) Stock bulls. This project has been run with the objectives of maximising genetic gain within the group and for farmers who purchase the bulls by increasing the EBI(BW) of the stock bulls on the farm.
Please see table below for bulls available and detailed listing.
