The Elite Foreverbrill ET (TVR) daughter has “tremendous shape and muscle”

A 6-month-old embryo calf pushed up to 7,000gns at the Limousin production sale of the Lodge and Harestone herds at Borderway Mart, Carlisle last Friday (July 26th).

Lodge Pearl - from Ian and Wendy Callion’s Lodge herd – is sired by the Irish-bred bull Elite Foreverbrill ET (TVR) - a Wildoge Vantastic son and is out of Lodge Emerald - a daughter of the herd’s French stock bull Attila.

“Lodge Peal is an outstanding heifer calf with tremendous shape and muscle. Pearl has been DNA profiled, sire-verified and has been myostatin tested to carry an NT821 and a Q204X gene.” the sales catalogue reads.

“Sells sucking recipient dam – a Simmental-cross; ran with Mattben, seen served 14/06/2019.”

‘Full of shape’

Carrying both shape and muscle, Lodge Pearl is the full-sister of Lodge Lavender who was sold at the herd’s sale in 2016 for 7500gns.

The top price animal was purchased by Mark McKinstry for his 25-cow pedigree Ballyaulkin herd at 84 Belfast Road, Nuttscorner, Crumlin.

Purchasing the animal was the herd manager Ian McFadden, who said: “I really liked this animal for her style and presence and she was just full of shape.”

“In coming to the sale, we were looking for quality females to add to the herd,” he added.
