Woodford cow tops Dungannon Simmental entry at 5,200gns

There was a strong demand for pedigree females at the Northern Ireland Simmental Cattle Breeders’ Club’s autumn show and sale, hosted by Dungannon Farmers’ Mart.

Leading the day’s trade at 5,200gns was the three-year-old cow Woodford Patricia 3rd from the dispersal of the noted Woodford Herd property of the late Thelma Gorman.

Woodford Patricia 3rd was sired by the Dripsey Super King son Breaghey Diamond, and is out of the Ballintlea King daughter Woodford Patricia 2nd. Included in the price was her five-month-old Dermotstown Delboy bull calf Woodford Iceberg. Scanned back in-calf to Delboy, she attracted spirited bidding from pedigree breeders around the sale ring. The closing bid came from Jason Whitcroft who runs the Armagh-based Whitdrum Herd.

Next best at 3,600gns was the reserve female champion Slieve Croob Hot Chick exhibited by Niall Robb from Ballynahinch. This February 2016 heifer was sired by the 20,000gns Stirling champion Auchorachan Wizard, and is out of the Clonagh Tiger Gallant daughter Drumacritten Cathy – one of the herd’s foundation females purchased at Dungannon. She sold to John and Sandra Middleton from Creevagh, Co Londonderry.

The same bidders paid out 3,500gns to secure the May 2016 born Owenskerry Helga from the Cowan family, Brian, Linda and Craig, from Fivemiletown. This second prize winner was sired by the 2015 Balmoral champion Dermotstown Delboy, and is out of a home-bred dam by Celtic Rock.

Stephen Millar, Irvinestown, realised 2,900gns for the third placed Glenock Grace ET. Born in September 2015 she was sired by Hillcrest Champion, and is out of the Kilbride Farm Newry daughter Magheracrigan Wonder.  In-calf to Steinadler, she sold to Neil Watson from Ballygawley.

The pre-sale show was sponsored by Bimeda, and judged by young breeder Alice Stubbs from the Drumbulcan Herd in Irvinestown.

Claiming the supreme championship ribbons was the female champion Castlemount Modesty 3rd bred by Duncan McDowell from Newtownards. Sired by Celtic Comet, this June 2016 heifer is out of a home-bred Arkmill Franklyn daughter. She came under the hammer of auctioneer Trevor Wylie at 2,400gns.

A small entry of pedigree bulls peaked at 2,000gns, paid to Joe Wilson and Sons, Newry, for the male and reserve supreme champion Ballinalare Farm Hector. This seventeen-month-old entry is a son of the outcross sire Curaheen Apostle, and is out of the home-bred Ballinalare Farm Fay – one of 65 cows in the herd. In the breed’s top 5% for eye muscle area +5.4, he sold to Leslie Glenn from Carryduff.

The reserve male championship was awarded to the July 2016 Camus Harold consigned by retired veterinary surgeon Joe Campbell, Strabane. This Kilbride Farm Newry son was unsold.

Commercial Simmental females topped at £1,900, realised by Jody Casey, Dungannon, for a heifer with a five-month-old heifer calf at foot.

In-calf heifers sold to a top of £1,400, paid to Seamus Casey, Dungannon. The same vendor also realised £1,280 and £1,240 for two in-calf cows.
