James Whelan Butchers: Beef Bonds with Hector on RTE 2fm

We’re getting a lot of coverage for our new Beef Bonds at James Whelan Butchers, I even had a chat with Hector on the radio about it and this is what Hector had to say

“We’ve all heard of jail bonds, bank bond and gold bond but this morning BWH focused on a meaty return on an investment – beef bonds!

Pat Whelan talks Beef Bonds on 2fm's Breakfast with Hector

Beef Bonds are the brainchild of Pat Whelan, a butcher in Clonmel, which involves selling futures in beef, which are being underwritten by them, with 250 cattle on their farm and if the animal does better than expected, the beef investor receives a higher yield! People can buy bonds in Clonmel or at their store in Monkstown in Dublin or on the website www.jameswhelanbutchers.com Bonds in Angus and Hereford cattle are €100 each, while bonds for the more exclusive Wagyu/Kobe Bond start at €150. An “investor” who buys one, or multiple share certificates, gets delivery of a box of various cuts of prime Tipperary beef on maturity – and Pat believes that we owe it to the animal to eat every single part and it brings people together around the table sharing great Irish food”.

Thanks Hector for helping us get the message out there!
