“It was always one of our goals to send an Irish-bred bull to the home of Charolais” – Martin Ryan – Goldstar Charolais, Co. Tipperary.

Goldstar Oxford - a son of 2009-born Goldstar Elle - (twice National Charolais Champion Tullamore) has been acquired by a pedigree breeder in France for an undisclosed sum.

The Loulou son – born in February-2018 – was bred by Martin Ryan and family - Goldstar Charolais, Cabra, Thurles, Co. Tipperary and has joined Gauthier Freeville's herd.

“It was always one of our goals to send an Irish-bred bull to the home of Charolais.” Martin Ryan -owner of Goldstar Charolais - said following the sale.

His dam – Goldstar Elle – was exported to Ireland by Simon Genetic a number of years ago.

Releasing a statement on Facebook, Simon Genetic said: “This cow [Goldstar Elle] was exported by Simon Genetic to the Ryan family’s Charolais herd in Ireland where she won all the greatest rewards in national competitions.”

“This time, it was her son - Goldstar Oxford - who crossed the channel to join Gauthier Freeville's breeding in Seine-Maritime!”

“We thank him for trusting us with the choice and purchase of this animal, but also the Ryan family for their professionalism.” The post concluded.
