The Irish Aubrac Cattle Breed Society will host its premier annual pedigree show and sale this Saturday, October 29th, 2022, at Tullamore Mart.
The catalogue includes 10 Aubrac bulls and in the region of 60 females, including heifers, in-calf heifers, and a selection of suckler cow and calf pairs.
The sale will begin at 1.00 pm under auctioneer, Tom Cox, with online bidding also available.
Speaking ahead of the sale, Irish Aubrac Society chairman, James Donnellan said:
“This Saturday is our premier annual show and sale. It is also the best opportunity in the year for breeders, dairy farmers or anyone interested in this remarkable breed to come and see the best Aubrac cattle available in Ireland.”
“All stock on offer have been pre-selected so buyers can have confidence that they will be bidding on the best of the best that the Aubrac breed has to offer Irish farmers.”
“As an added incentive to buyers, the council of the Aubrac Society has decided that any bull that makes €4,000 or more on Saturday will qualify for a ‘buyer’s premium of €400 that will go back to the buyer of the bull,” he said.
According to Donnellan, Aubracs are “growing in popularity” across the complete spectrum of farmers, including among dairy farmers, where three of the top six active AI bulls in the ICBF Dairy Beef Cross Index – Dauphin, Despagnou and Madison – are Aubrac.
He continued: “Saturday’s show and sale will have wide appeal to suckler farmers, dairy farmers, and both established and new pedigree breeders.”
“It is a unique opportunity in the pedigree calendar for anyone interested in fine cattle and the best of pedigree cattle breeds,” he concluded.
