ICBF recently launched a new feature on the ICBF website called the Stockbull Finder. The Stockbull Finder is an extremely useful tool for farmers who are looking to purchase a pedigree beef stock bull this spring.
Pedigree breeders that are participating in the Whole Herd Performance Recording Programme have agreed to have their stock independently weighed and scored by the ICBF. In return, we advertise all of their young bulls for sale on our website. To access the Stockbull Finder simply go to www.icbf.com and click on the Stockbull Finder logo on our home page. After that, you can choose your selection criteria, which include the counties you want to look in, the breed of bull you want to purchase and the minimum star rating you want the bull to have.
The application will very quickly show you which bulls match your criteria, the name of the breeder that owns them and the contact details for that breeder. This facility allows buyers to quickly see where there are bulls that match their requirements.
It also means they will be buying a bull from a herd that has been independently assessed, which increases the reliability of the €urostar indices on those bulls, giving you more confidence in the figures
