We are delighted to announce that semen is now available from our junior stock sire, Clonagh Direct Debit. This home bred bull is an exceptional son of our senior stock bull and noted King of the Ring show bull Banwy T-Rex.
Direct Debit’s pedigree is jam packed with super star performance both in breeding and in proven show winning stock. His dam, Cloneygowan Temptress Posh, is a former National Champion and Beef Expo winner and is full sister to Clonagh World Class, the 2012 English National male champion and stock sire and at the Sacombe herd of the Borlase family, Hertfordshire, England. A full brother to Direct Debit, Clonagh Cupid’s Temptress, is also a former National Champion. A half brother Drumsleed Chevrolet was Junior Champion at the Forfar Stars of the Future 2011. His grandam Clonagh Posh Klowna by Anatrim Jacob was exported to the Drumsleed herd, Scotland for a herd female record price of €8,000.
Direct Debit is a powerful red and white T-Rex son with an exception temperament. He comes from an extremely milky line with easy calving deep in his pedigree with Kilbride Farm Newry and Anatrim Jacob on the maternal side. Without doubt this is the best son born to date by T-Rex, the multi award winning stock sire who was purchased in Perth in 2007 for 8500gns and is by Sterling Nelson 2, out of Skerrington Hycinth 8th.
“T-Rex has been the most influential sire we’ve had in the herd to date. He’s stamped his progeny with great length, natural fleshing, style, breed character, milk, docility and largely his easy calving characteristics, as he is ranked number one for maternal index at €260, as well as being ranked third for terminal index with a value of €114.”
