Herd competition

According to a statement from the Irish Limousin Cattle Society, the purchasers set their sights on their new acquisition as a young calf while they were judging the North-East Club’s herd competition in June of last year.

“Having been very impressed by the then four-month-old calf, they set about purchasing her and now at 11-month-old, this outstanding heifer has taken up residence in France.”

“The Irish Limousin Cattle Society would like to wish Julien and Sandra the very best with Esker-Hill Patricia Et. Congratulations to Padraig and we wish you continued success with the Esker-Hill herd.” the statement concluded.

In a social media post, Esker-Hill Limousins, said, “Delighted to announce Esker-Hill Patricia, sired by Sympa has been sold privately at 11-months-old and will join the French herd of Julien Sandra Souvignet.”
