The clearance sale of the entire herd of the late Paddy Drohan - Scrahan, Kilmacthomas, Co. Waterford will take place on Saturday. Paddy was killed in November following a fall from a height.

The clearance sale of the entire herd of the late Paddy Drohan (R.I.P) will take place this Saturday (December 15th) at 12:30 pm at New Ross Mart.

56 four and five-star Limousin and Simmental cows - all in-calve to pedigree registered Limousin and Simmental sires - calving from January to March will go under the hammer.

The special entry from the herd - which participated in the BETTER Farm Beef Challenge - Teagasc programme - also includes ten five-star Limousin and Simmental heifers in-calve to 5-star Limousin bulls due from mid-January.

The herd's two stock bulls - a pedigree registered Limousin and a pedigree registered Simmental bull are being offered for sale.

Selective Breeding

"This is a herd of cows that have been carefully put together with the view to the future of suckler farming in mind at all times." A spokesperson for New Ross Mart said.

"It is a must sale for any farmer interested in acquiring some of the finest cows that have come to the market in the past number of years."

Paddy Drohan, Scrahan, Kilmacthomas, Co. Waterford - a well-known suckler farmer; husband and father-of-four - was killed following a fall from a height last month, as reported here.
