As to why I bought him … he was early in the sale and I was in a rush to get to the Leinster match in Dublin …. no, seriously, from the first time I saw him, I felt he had a presence so I was happy when I looked him up in the Catalogue and realised he also had excellent figures.
Unfortunately someone else must have thought the same …because he cost a bit more than I thought he might!
He’s five star for terminal traits. Hopefully he will be easy calving and the calves will go on to be quality beef. He will be used on our younger cows.
We let him out this afternoon, his first day out this year. Like all teenagers on his first day out he spent a few minutes blowing off some steam but here he is, looking proud and noble.
