The chiroferrite medium is conceptualized as a homogenized composite medium (HCM) comprising a magnetically biased ferrite and an isotropic chiral medium as its components. Numerical results are presented which show unambiguously that the HCM is fully bianisotropic with all four constitutive dyadics endowed with a gyrotropic structure. The magnetoelectric response properties depend critically on the chirality parameter and the volume fraction of its isotropic chiral component.
