The Irish Limousin Cattle Society held their 24th National Show in Tullamore, Offaly on Sunday 11th August 2013. A massive entry of 160 of the best Limousin genetics available competed in 16 classes including the All Ireland Calf Finals.

Judge for this prestigious event was Mr. Richard Bartle of the distinguished Dinmore Herd based in Hereford, UK. Mr. Bartle commenting at the conclusion of the event said “I would like to take this opportunity to thank all involved in the show here in Tullamore, the Stewards, the Exhibitors and the spectators. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of judging the fantastic cattle on display here today. This was as good a show as I have seen anywhere.”

Breed Secretary Paul Sykes expressed his gratitude to the judge, the exhibitors, the spectators and all those who helped in the running of this celebrated event, which is now in its 24th year. Paul singled out the sponsors of this event for special mention as without their loyal and continuing support this event would not be possible, or would not have grown to the high-status it now commands, (the sponsors of each class are listed below, with the results of the classes).

Limousin cattle are renowned as a very versatile breed, with pedigree bulls and heifers always in demand. Limousin females both commercial and pedigree are proven to be the number one suckler cow in Ireland.

From start to finish the Limousin ring was packed with spectators, many of whom had travelled from Northern Ireland and the United Kingdom to see some of the best cattle Irish Limousin have to offer – their visit was not in vain.

Taking the title of Supreme Champion for 2013 was the prolific “Milbrook Ginger Spice” from the herd of William Smith, Oldcastle, Meath. This January 2011 born Wilodge Vantastic daughter, is out of a homebred dam Milbrook Baby (a Brookmill Usefull ET daughter). Ginger Spice holds a very impressive show record including winning the Overall Interbreed Champion at Balmoral show in 2012 and 2013, and Overall female champion at the Derby in 2012.

Hope is enjoying a successful show season and amongst her successes so far was a second placing in the All Ireland Derby 2013.

Intrepid had earlier taken the Junior Limousin Male Champion title. The title of Reserve Junior Limousin Male Champion went to “Erne Hobbit”, from the herd of Raymond Crawford. Hobbit is a November 2012 born son of Sauvignon.

Judge Mr. Bartle was faced with a very keenly contested junior female section, after much deliberation he awarded the Junior Limousin Female Champion to “Elite Hope” from the herd of Edward Tynan. Reserve Junior Limousin Female Champion was awarded to “Ardnacrusha Hilarious”. In the same class was Elite Hazel (a Wilodge Vantastic daughter) from the herd of Edward Tynan. These three heifers had competed earlier this year in the All Ireland Derby, where Ardnacrusha Hilarious had taken the red rosette.
