In the midst of all the doom and gloom at present, there is some positive news in the Irish Charolais world this week, as the Goldstar herd owned by Martin Ryan and family in County Tipperary have exported two young pedigree Charolais Heifers to the Czech Republic.

Goldstar Poppy ET

Goldstar Poppy ET who was the Overall Junior Female Calf Champion at last year’s National Charolais Show, and her full sister, Goldstar Pippa ET, set sail for Eastern Europe earlier this week. The pair who are just over a year old, are sired by Goldstar Echo and are out of Goldstar Fifi, a daughter of Invincible. It is encouraging for all Irish Charolais breeders to see demand like this from other Countries. Congratulations must go to the Ryan family on their sale, hopefully both Heifers perform well on their new pastures and the very best of luck to their new owners.
