Breeders are being asked not to artificially inseminate any breeding females to Jaegerbomb until “further notice”.
The Limousin bull’s passport and those of various Ballinloan and Ballinloan-related animals have been withdrawn by the British Cattle Movement Service, as reported by us here.
Releasing a statement on Facebook on May 4th, Gunnerfleet Limousin Cattle said: “We would like to thank everyone for your support, kindness and messages in the past few days which have been a very stressful and draining time.”
“This support has meant a lot to us as other issues had to be dealt with also; not in relation to the Ballinloan Jaegerbomb saga, which didn’t help at all and just bad timing with this situation occurring the evening before the bull sales.”
“Again, our heart goes out to the other breeders involved in this mess; we hope it gets resolved very soon. “
“The Limousin breeders do feel like a second family - without their support, this ordeal would have been so much harder to deal with. Hopefully, we can continue breeding Limousins.”
“Our future with Limousin looks bleak”
A post published on its Facebook page on May 2nd stated: “At this present time, our future with Limousin looks bleak. There seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel.”
“We are in the dark as much as you are at the moment. Our hearts go out to all the other breeders in the same devasting situation as us - unable to trade any Jaegerbomb progeny.”
“Also, to ask please not to AI any cattle to Jaegerbomb until further notice.”
