Calf Promotion Kilmallock

The sun shone brightly on the sky as Hereford breeders John Neenan and John McAuliffe attended the Hereford calf show at Kilmallock mart. There was a plentiful supply of Hereford calves as judges Donie Mullins and David Geary selected their champions under the watch of Hereford auctioneer Hugh Mulvihill. They selected John McCarthy’s heifer calf as female champion sired by a Kilcormac bull.

The Shandrum Man also won this prize last year and was sold for €320. The male champion was property of Micheal D Murphy Newmarket and sold for €400.  This calf was one of a lot of 8 bulls and they went on to make €395 each.  These calves were all sired by a bull purchased from Tom Roycroft Dunmanway Co.Cork. Overall the Hereford trade was buzzing and the prospects for the Hereford bull sale on this Friday should be a red a hot sale.
