Valentine’s Vixens Online Sale

The Clonagh herd are delighted to once again be working with the team at Mart Eye in hosting our next online sale. This years sale will take place between the 10th and 13th February 2023 hence being named the – “Valentine’s Vixens!”

The sale will comprise of 50 lots – 36 females, 12 bulls and 2 frozen embryos.

Of the 36 females presented there are 23 Simmental – the entire autumn crop of heifers and the majority of winter/spring born natural and embryo calves. The entire crops of both Limousin (10) and Charolais (3) heifers on offer for sale.

The females on offer have something for every one and every budget. From top show females to foundation females, herd starters or a herd finisher for anyone looking to get their hands on a certain family line to complete their herd. Among the star lots is what’s come to be known as “the divorce heifer” the one we probably shouldn’t be selling, Nigella Posh. Her full sister is here, dam is still young and fresh and she stands to be made again. We hope she sells well and does us proud where ever she ends up. There is also a National calf champion, sisters of champions, daughters of champions and two full sisters of the 52k, Clonagh Lucky Explorer. Of the 10 Limousin heifers on offer, 8 are by Tomschoice Lexicon, a bull whom we have been delighted with over the past two seasons. Not only are his progeny oozing with shape and style they are without a doubt the most docile Limousin cattle we have ever worked with. There are 3 Charolais heifers for sale, the first we have ever offered for sale from the herd. They do back to our two foundation females, Goldstar Beatrix and Castlemartin Rachel. When establishing a new breed on the farm there was a lot of research invested before any money was spent and neither of these females left us down.

There are 12 bulls also entered in the sale, 7 Simmentals, 3 Limousin, 1 Charolais and 1 Hybrid bull by our senior herd sire Manor Park Hansome out of an extreme muscled Limousin cow, Clonagh Lyndsey Babe. Of the bulls on offer we feel we have a “special one” in Clonagh Noddy – he’s the stamp of his father Hansome if not a touch better and come from a cracking Banwy T-Rex cow. All bulls will be fertility tested prior to collection and we are offering the option for all bulls sold to remain on farm until April 1st 2023.

As this is an online sale once again we have placed the biggest emphasis on the videos of the cattle for sale with as many angles given as possible. Also can be seen walking where possible although some couldn’t resist a good kick around the field at the first sight of freedom! Photographs of dams, siblings etc are available on our website and social media in as many lots as possible.

This years frozen embryo offerings are from Clonagh Gold Card and Cloneygowan Temptress Posh, making them ET full siblings to both the Overall Senior Female of the Year 2022 and the Overall Junior Female of the Year 2022, Clonagh Majestic Trixie and Clonagh Nymphette Posh ET.

This year as well as teaming up with Mart Eye and Mid Tipp Mart, Thurles we are also running the sale in conjunction with H&H Borderway Mart, Carlisle for their first venture in Southern Ireland.

Heatherington & Harrison Auctioneer James Little believes that the reputation of the Clonagh pedigree and the exceptional strength of the H&H approved UK customer following could also make this a record-breaking sale.

“We are absolutely delighted to be entrusted with the sale of such high calibre pedigree livestock by one of Southern Ireland’s most prominent and respected breeders. It’s a privilege for us and we’re very confident that in conjunction with the established credibility of Mart Eye, we can showcase the Clonagh cattle to leading breeders across the whole of the UK.”

Free transport will be available for all cattle sold the UK. ROI delivery will be arranged to various collection points also where possible.
