Weatherbys Scientific scientists have played a crucial role in having the Droimeann cattle breed declared as a native rare Irish cattle breed. This is the first breed declared by the FAO as such since the Kerry Bog Pony in 2005 and all of the laboratory work was carried out in our state of the art facilities in Naas Co. Kildare.
