A pedigree Limousin heifer of “superior breeding from a prize-winning herd” is to be raffled off this summer.
The draw is to be conducted by, and for the benefit of, Southern Area Hospice and St Patrick’s GFC, Cullyhanna (training pitch fund).
“[It] provides the chance to own a full-sister of the Balmoral 2018 Champion.”
In October 2015, Trueman Limousins sold the world record-breaking Trueman Jagger – a 2014-born bull for 140,000 guineas.
“Since that date, the herd - owned by H Savage & Sons, Skerriff - has had continued success winning at various shows and sales and achieving high prices along the way.”
In 2018, one of his daughters - Trueman Noreen - won the Over-all Interbreed Championship at Balmoral.
“Based on this unprecedented success, with sincere thanks to Trueman Limousins for their generosity, a full-sister of Noreen is the unique prize for one lucky winner in the draw this summer.”
“For those not involved in the agricultural industry or those simply seeking the cash value, the fantastic prize can be sold on request at the next available pedigree Limousin sale.”
“The proceeds of the sale will be provided to the lucky winner at that point.”
Tickets are available to purchase (£20 per ticket or 3 for £40) and will be on sale from various outlets in the coming weeks, the organisers confirmed.
