Top Limousin genetics are set to come under the hammer in the joint online auction of the Trueman and Lynderg herds this week.
This auction will be held solely online via elite.pedigreesales.com from Thursday, July 15th.
Trueman and Lynderg auction
Saturday, 17th July is the key day as the bidding concludes on a timed basis from 1 pm onwards.
The sale will include 21 pedigree registered Limousin cattle comprising of 19 females and 2 young bulls.
There will also be 3 lots of embryos and a recipient with a guaranteed pregnancy.
The Trueman herd of Henry Savage and family needs little introduction as it has excelled since its formation in 1997.
We recently profiled the Savage family, who has notched up an array of show and sale successes, including securing 140,000 guineas for Trueman Jagger at Carlisle.
They built most of their herd around the 40th-anniversary national champion, Trueman Euphonium.
This includes many lots that trace back to this matriarch. The Savage family had planned to offer a small number of females in the 50th-anniversary show.
However, this had to be cancelled, all these lots now form part of the Trueman and Lynderg sale.
Once again, this year, progeny from Telfers Munster will feature in the Trueman offering.
The Savage family consider the cattle offer to be quite possibly the best they have “ever presented for sale”.
Their entry includes Trueman Rosanna [main image], an exceptional maiden sired by Telfers Munster.
She is a daughter of Trueman India, a full sister to the highly regarded Trueman Idol and a granddaughter of Trueman Euphonium.
In addition to the top-drawer pedigree wrapped around this lot, Rosanna is an outstanding heifer with “the potential to excel as a stock cow”.
The Lynderg prefix of Jim and Joseph Quail was created in 1977.
With over 120 years of excelling as butchers, the Quails remained focused on breeding the type of Limousin cattle that the market demands.
Besides, they have had considerable success at shows and sales throughout Ireland and the UK.
The Quails invested in top genetics from France over the years and had several hugely influential stock bulls, including Ocean, Napoleon, Dimitri and Lorenzo.
They always carefully considered female lines within the herd, and 2003 saw an importation of six top females to consolidate the Lynderg herd further.
One of the most recent highlights has been the homebred, Lynderg Hero. Hero has an impressive track record in the show ring, securing championships and reserves at Balmoral and Highland Shows, respectively.
His greatest success has been his progeny, with sons selling to 20,000, 14,500 and 14,000 guineas.
The forthcoming online sale features a number of Hero progeny, from proven cow families within the Lynderg herd. These include lot 5, Lynderg Rembrant, “a very special prospect for those on the hunt for a new potential stock bull”.
The hand-picked Lynderg offering includes a number of heifers from the heart of the herd. These are mostly maidens with an in-calf heifer also going under the hammer. I
Jim firmly believes these are “top drawer and will be excellent females for established and new breeders”.
