Females sold to €2,200 and cow and calf pairings topped out at €2,520. Read the report here.

Crowds gathered from all corners of the country on Saturday for the Irish Aubrac Cattle Society pre-selected spring pedigree and commercial sale, staged at Tullamore Mart.

Leading the sale at a notable €2,850 was Shrubbywood Lima, an 18-month-old bull, a son of Johnstown Ian 1144, from the herd of Shane and Joanne Bowers, Coole, Co. Westmeath.

Following on his heels at €2,800 was Tipperary Leo 307, a 20-month-old bull, sired by Montrozier 8197, from the herd of James Ryan, Doon, Co. Limerick. Michael Hanlon, Dring, Co. Longford exchanged hands with one of his bulls for €2,700.

Females

Topping the female category was Tipperary Karen, a daughter of Montrozier 8197, owned by James Ryan, Doo; the hammer fell at €2,200. The same purchaser also acquired an additional heifer, Shrubbywood Liberty, from the Westmeath-based herd of Shane and Joanne Bowers for €2,150. Breeders Shane and Joanne also fetched €2,520 for an Aubrac-cross cow, with a Charolais bull calf at foot. Overall, bulls sold to an average of €2,675, while heifers averaged out at €1,600.

Speaking following the sale, James Donnellan, Chairman of Irish Aubrac Cattle Society said:“There was a 50% clearance. Obviously, the late Spring and fodder shortage is having an effect."
