The first ever autumn sale of bulls from the Tully Performance Test Centre resulted in a good trade for the Limousin bulls just off their performance test.   The days trading resulted in a 61% clearance to average €2,762.

Leading the days trading at €5,000 was Ballydaniel Alexander from James Smyth, Ballydaniel, Co. Wexford who was having one of his best days trading.   Ballydaniel Alexander earlier in the week won the first prize in the Limousin section.   This son of his stock sire Rosscahill Uri, a Geant son was out of a homebred cow Ballydaniel Roxie, an Espoir daughter. 

The bull had exceptional WCSI, BPSI & BLUP Figures along with tremendous liveweight gain of 2.62 kg/day while on test.   The other interesting fact is that sire Rosscahill Uri was himself a top performance tested bull at Tully where James purchased this stock sire.   This well bred July 2005 bull now heads to the 80 cow suckler herd of Jimmy Power, Dunmore East, Co. Waterford.

Laois to join his 45 cow suckler herd.

Meath for his September 2005 bull.

The fifth highest price of €3,200 went to Maythorn Alfred from Martin McConnon, Carrickmacross, Co. Monaghan for his late September 2005 bull.   This muscular bull was anoter son of Mas du Clo out of Barnattin Swallow, a Highlander daughter.
