James Whelan Butchers Beef Bonds

Welcome to our Beef Bonds

The Beef Bond is a certificate giving a share in one of our renowned Angus, Hereford or Wagyu/Kobe cattle.  Each Beef Bond includes the ID number, breed and expected maturity of the animal it is linked to. The bonds can be short-term or long-term maturity.

Pat Whelan Launches Ireland's First Beef Bonds

On maturity, the investor who buys one or multiple beef bonds, gets delivery of their bounty of various cuts of prime Tipperary beef. Each bond holder is guaranteed  a defined return of investment based on the expected maturity weight of the animal, however extra potential exists in a long-term maturity bond where animals can exceed their expected maturity weight and therefore the return on investment is greater. The maturing weight of the animal is predicted at the time of purchase, guaranteeing the buyer a defined yield.

The Short Term bonds generally mature within 14 weeks of purchase,
The Medium Term bonds mature within 18 weeks of purchase,
The Long Term bonds mature within 22 weeks of purchase.

Bonds in Angus and Hereford cattle are €100 each, while bonds for the more exclusive Wagyu/Kobe Bond are €150 each.

Hereford Beef

Originally from Herefordshire, England, United Kingdom, more than five million pedigree Hereford cattle now exist in over 50 countries. Throughout its history the Hereford has maintained its distinctive white face and red coat. Herefords finished off grass produces excellent ‘marbled’ beef . It has a distinctive flavour and renowned eating quality.  Herefords are well suited to forage based diets. Research at Bristol University has shown Hereford beef produced off grass and forage based diets, is high in the essential fatty acid omega-3 and has a distinctive taste. Herefords have a great temperament and are generally docile animals which makes them very easy to work with and results in great beef.

Aberdeen Angus

Originally from Aberdeen in Scotland going back to 1700′s this hardy animal originally a work horse survives very well outdoors all year round and is a particularly docile animal. Aberdeen Angus are known throughout the world for their ability to consistently produce the finest high quality beef. The superior meat quality of  Aberdeen Angus cattle comes from their ability to lay down intra-muscular marbling fat during the finishing phase, together with excellent tenderness, texture, flavour, meat colour and fat colour.

Wagyu Beef

Wagyu beef is fast becoming one of the most desirable meats in the world. Described as the Foie Gras of beef, Wagyu has become famous for its intense marbling which produces a tender, juicy, naturally enhanced flavour to the meat. The meat is high in omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids as a result of its intense marbling. Wagyu is proven to be significantly lower in saturated fat and higher in healthy monounsaturated fat making it far healthier than any other breed of beef available on the market.
