On bank holiday Easter Monday, 22nd April, 2019, the South West Limousin club in association with Castleisland mart held a Limousin cross calf show & sale. These calves were excellent examples of the type of Limousin X calves produced in the dairy herd. With the quality of calves on offer – there was huge demand and excellent prices paid.
Judging the show was Mr. John O’Connor, a Limousin breeder and butcher from county Kerry. With a great entry – John had an unenviable task. Many thanks to the Management and staff of Castleisland mart, also thanks to sellers and buyers.
We are very grateful to John for judging, and to Sarah McElligott for all her work and effort in organising and ensuring the smooth running of the show & sale.
