The Salers Cattle Society would like to congratulate Bernard Hunt who is nominated for this years Hall of Fame. Bernard is from Gurteen, Co. Sligo. His father Brian Hunt established the famous “Sligo” Herd since 1995. The Sligo herd grew by importing Salers annually over the following years from top Salers herds in France. The success of the herd can be attributed to the careful selection and importation of females from proven French lines.

Bernard has great success at showing cattle at Regional shows every year.  His winning titles include Overall National Large Salers Herd, All Ireland Calf Champions both Male and Female, All Ireland Cow Champions and winning Overall Salers Champions at Tullamore Show for four years in a row and many Overall Champions at numerous Regional shows.

Bernard is and has been an active member of the Salers council for many years.

He is supported by his wife Liz and his two sons, Einri and Caelan.
