The 22nd National Limousin Show took place at the National Livestock Show Tullamore on Sunday 14th August with 136 Limousins catalogued on the day. With judging taking place between 10.30am to 4.30pm the Limousin ring was a hive of activity with crowds admiring the spectacular scenes of the best Limousin cattle Ireland had to offer.

It was a double celebration for the Ardlea & Elite herds of father and son Dan and Edward Tynan, Mountrath, Co. Laois, and their dedicated team of workers as they took the overall and reserve champion awards with two homebred heifers “Ardlea Electra” and “Elite Foreverfree ET”.

Overall Champion, “Ardlea Electra” is by Fieldson Alfy out of the French cow Vorace born in January 2009. Earlier in the day she was awarded her third National Limousin title, taking National Limousin senior heifer champion and later going on to win senior female and overall female champion above her stable mate “Elite Foreverfree ET. No stranger to success she had previously claimed the coveted All Ireland Derby Heifer title at Cappamore Show in 2010, as well as the National junior heifer title at Tullamore in 2010. As a calf in 2009 she claimed first prize at the National Limousin Show at the NPA Athy. Electra is in calf to the herds junior herd sire Emerson who is by Objat.

Reserve overall champion was “Elite Foreverfree ET” by Wilodge Vantastic out of home bred dam Ardlea Coillte by senior herd sire Vision. Prior to this she claimed her National All Ireland Limousin title before being crowned junior female and then reserve overall female champion. This young heifer already holds a string of awards including interbreed calf champion on her first outing at Cork, overall champion at Athlone and Charleville shows and South East Limousin Club female calf champion. She was also placed third in the All Ireland Limousin Derby in Clogher Valley Show being the youngest heifer in the class.

Reserve Overall Champion Irish National Limousin Show 2011 - Elite Foreverfree ET

Judge for the day was Kay Adam of the noted Newhouse herds of Limousin and Charolais cattle. Together with husband Bob and stock manager Brian Wills, the herd consists of 35 Charolais cows, 25 Black Limousin cows and 45 Red Limousin cows. Regular supporters of Carlisle and Stirling sales they have sold Charolais bulls to a top of 22,000gns and Black Limousin bulls to a top of 16,000gns. Commenting on her day Kay said she had witnessed a super selection of cows and heifers. What she liked in particular about the supreme champion Ardlea Electra was her size, width and head character and that her reserve champion Elite Forever Free just oozes style.

The Elite Herd also scooped up the award for the top exhibitor claiming the most points on the day.

It was a similar story for the father and sons team of the Richardson family, Newtowngore, Co. Leitrim, who took both the overall male and reserve overall male titles with “Newtown Freman” and “Newtown Gentleman”.

The overall male champion, “Newtown Freman” is by Wilodge Vantastic out of a homebred Dauphin dam, Newtown Trixie. This August 2010-born bull won his National bull class earlier that morning before going on to be placed senior male champion.
