The majority of the cows have four/five-star ratings and will qualify for the BDGP.

Martin and Shelia O'Hare’s suckler herd will go under the hammer on Saturday, May 4th at 12 pm at Ardee Mart, Co. Louth.

64 “exceptional quality, young spring-calving suckler cows with calves at foot” will be offered for sale.

The majority of the cows – which are continental-types with 2-month-old Charolais, Simmental and Limousin calves at foot – have four/five-star ratings and will qualify for the BDGP, according to the owners of the herd.

A 5-year-old CF52-sired stock bull out of a Pirate dam is also catalogued for the sale.

The O’Hares are previous participants in the Teagasc BETTER beef farm programme.

“All stock vaccinated for BVD and Lepto and tested negative for IBR.”
