Kilsunny Herefords owned by Trevor Dudley & Family, Kilsunny Hse, Dovea, Thurles, Co. Tipperary secured the last high profile sale of 2015 with their young 11 month old bull calf Kilsunny Llyeton selling to Mark & Laurence Moore, Aughnacloy, Co. Tyrone, Northern Ireland.
Kilsunny Lleyton was shown just once in 2015, at last Autumn’s National Hereford Calf Show where he claimed both the Reserve Junior Bull Calf and the Reserve Supreme Male Championship titles. It was at this show that he caught the eye of several pedigree breeders and after a couple days worth of negotiations he was eventually knocked down to the Moore Family of Tyrone for an undisclosed fee.
Kilsunny Lleyton is sired by senior herd sire at Kilsunny, Glaslough Judge and is bred from the prolific Lass cow family. Lleyton’s dam Kilsunny Lass Fluffy was the National Junior Cow Champion at the National Hereford Show, Tullamore in 2011 and was 2nd prize winner (to her herd mate Kilsunny Queen Carnation) in the senior cow class at the 2012 National Hereford Show a year later.
Arriving in Tyrone just before Christmas, Kilsunny Lleyton is now standing at Annaghbeg Herefords as the new junior herd sire for their 15-cow pedigree herd.
