Hereford bulls to €4,700 at Nenagh 

Hereford bulls were in “hot demand” at the society’s most recent sale in Nenagh Mart, as prices reached €4,700 and returns levelled at €3,200.

According to a spokesperson for the Irish Hereford Breed Society, the average price was €300 above that of the corresponding sale in 2021.

Top of the town at €4,700 from Noel Farrell of Brocca Herefords, Westmeath was Brocca Leo, by Allowdale Rambo 738 and a Cill Cormaic Kasper dam.

The bull has a five-star replacement index along with five stars for milk, calving interval, and good figures for calving ease.

The next best at €3,650 was Skehanore Gifted, a June-2020-born bull from Tom & Paddy Hickey, Cork. Gifted is by Free Town Peerless, National Hereford Champion 2021, and a Balleen Plomber dam.
