Topping Roundhill and Castleview Limousins’ eighth genetic advantage sale on Saturday (September 12th) at €9,500 was Roundhill Punanime ET, following strong ringside and online activity.
Lot 19, an Elite Ice Cream ET daughter, went under the hammer at Roscrea Mart, along with thirty-nine other deep pedigree females and embryos.
The March-2019-born heifer is a twin to a female and is out of Roundhill I UNAMINE 1440, an Elite Forever Brill ET (TVR) daughter with lines including Unanime, Wilodge Vantastic, Ardlea Coillte, Obus and Rafle on her maternal side.
She was presented for sale with a replacement index of €76 with a two-star rating within the breed and a three-star rating across with the breed, along with a terminal index of €167.
She boasts five-stars for docility, carcass weight and carcass conformation within the breed, with two stars for daughter milk and one star for daughter calving interval.
‘One of the best we have bred’
“A superstar and one of the best we have bred, sure to be a show heifer from a superb and consistent family.” the Corridans explained ahead of the sale.
“Her dam, Roundhill IUnanime 1440, was national junior champion 2014. Her full sister sold at our 2016 sale, Roundhill L Unanime 1656, and was national limousin heifer champion born on/or after 1/1/16 – 31/3/16.”
“Would love to have shown her this year. 5-star terminal index, in the top 1% of the breed for terminal index, carcass weight and conformation.”
