The Limestone T-Rex son was sold after the sale, with a small share retained.

The overall supreme champion at the Suffolk Sheep Society – South of Ireland Branch premier show and sale, which was held on Saturday, August 1st, was bid to 22,000gns in the ring, but was later sold privately.

The Limestone T-Rex-sired ram lamb was acquired by the highest bidder, Andrew Wilson, Castleisle Flock, for 25000gns with a small share retained.

The entry won the open ram lamb class in Blessington before being tapped out as the male and overall supreme champion of the show and sale.

In a post on social media, Eamonn Duffy of Kells Suffolks, said: “What a day to mark the 40th anniversary of Kells Suffolks.”

“With our Limestone T-Rex-sired ram lamb winning the open ram lamb class, then going on to win Male and Overall Supreme champion of the show and sale. He was bid to 22000gns in the ring and was later sold privately to the highest bidder, Andrew Wilson, Castleisle Flock for 25000gns with a small share retained.

“Thanks to my wife Anne Marie and son Thomas, Alfie and Elaine Shaw for their wonderful photos, Ian Donald, Aaron Kealy and Robbie Porter for all their help on the day and in preparation for the sale.”

“We wish Andrew the best of luck with Kells T-Rex and look forward to seeing his progeny at the sales next year.”
