A SELECT offering of Beef Shorthorn cattle from the Caramba herd from Tom Staunton, Co Galway, and the Rowanberry herd from Shane and Frances Brigdale, Co Clare, was offered for sale via online auction.

 

It was the second auction to be hosted by www.pedigreesalesonline.co.uk, and Mr Staunton said the sale exceeded all expectations.

 

Mr Staunton said: “There were a large number of interested parties that viewed the cattle on farm prior to the bidding, but equally as many purchasing from the photos and pre-sale videos on the web forum. I have no doubt that the cattle travelling to their new homes throughout the UK and Ireland will breed well and prosper.”

 

Tens of thousands of viewers were reported to have logged onto the site, with prices topping at €5,200 (£4,423.02) for a red and white maiden heifer.

 

Sale leader was Caramba Katrina K171, a January 2016-born daughter of Carrarock Chalkie. It found a new home with Graham Hunt, Yorkshire.

 

At €5,000 (£4,252.91) was Caramba Rothes Kissable, a yearling also by Chalkie. Full sister to the multi-winning Caramba Hottie, it was bought by Cathryn Williamson, Kingussie.

 

Bull trade went to €4,300 (£3,652.15) paid by Megan Towers, Northants, for the January 2016-born Caramba Keystone. By Canadian HC Free Spirit 6Y, its bloodlines included Highfield Improver and Deerpark.

 

The Rowanberry consignment peaked at €3,100 (£2,636.80), paid by Patrick Brady, Cavan, for the Crusader of Skaillhouse-sired Rowanberry Kathryn.

 

Stephen Millar, County Fermanagh paid €3,000 (£2,547.16) for a foundation female for his new herd. Rowanberry Jewel is a daughter of Glenisla Expolorer.
