A massive entry of 107 Charolais bulls was catalogued for Tullamore last Saturday. Due to a number of home sales and double entries for the upcoming Christmas Cracker, just short of 60 bulls were offered on the day. The sale resulted in a 72% clearance, with bulls selling to an average of €4,060. Trade topped at €9,000 for the day's Overall Senior Champion, Kilcleagh Tom. A total of 12 bulls sold for €5,000 or more, highlighting the demand for the top end bulls.

Kilcleagh Tom

The sale topper and the Overall Senior Champion was exhibited by Noel Farrell from County Westmeath. A son of Fiston out off a Bova Sylvain bred dam, this May 2022 born bull displayed a tremendous set of figures along with a calving figure of 7.6% on beef cows. At +45kg on Carcass Weight and +2.4 on Carcass Confirmation, Tom proved to be a suckler man's dream. He sold to a suckler farmer from County Clare.

Sunnaghmore Timmy ET

Hot on his heels at €7,300 was the first prize winner from the first class of bulls, Sunnaghmore Timmy ET, exhibited by Andy Mc Govern from County Leitrim. This March 2022 born bull is a son of Pirate out off a CF 52 bred dam. He catalogued with a five star terminal index of €137 and carries one copy of the Q204X gene. A County Roscommon suckler farmer had the last call on this one.

Pottlereagh Tyson

Patrick Hughes from County Cavan was in the money when his bull Pottlereagh Tyson went under the hammer at €6,600. This 17 month old bull is a son of Giono and a homebred dam by Cavelands Fenian. He packed a fantastic set of indexes along with a calving figure of just 3.5% on beef cows. Tyson sold to a West of Ireland suckler farmer.

Ballym Toro

Also trading at €6,600 was the second prize winner Ballym Toro, for Louise Quinn from County Offaly. This powerful April 2022 born bull is a son of the homebred Ballym Mate and Ballym Olive 2, who goes back Bourgogne. Displaying a five star terminal index of €140 and a calving figure of just 5%, he proved to be an attractive package for buyer Melvin Matthews from Gurteen.

Scardaune Targat

Three bulls changed hands at €5,800. The first to do so was Scardaune Targat for Daniel Conway from County Mayo. This stylish bull is a son of the herd's stock bull Roughan Pearse and a daughter of Derryowen Harvey.

He also carries one copy of the Q gene. A County Clare farmer had the final call on this one.

The final bull to sell for €5,800 was Fieldview Titus, exhibited by David Erskine from County Monaghan. One of the youngest bulls on the day, at just under 14 months old, Titus is a son of Solitude Narcos and a Blelack Digger bred dam. With stars in abundance and a calving figure of just 4% on beef cows, the Monaghan bull attracted significant interest in the sales ring. He sold to a suckler herd in County Galway.

Ballinderry Thames

The Reserve Junior Championship was awarded to Ballinderry Thames for Michael Stephens. This classy young bull is a son of Drumcullen JJ and a Vexour Gareth bred dam. Having failed to meet his reserve in the sales ring, he changed hands outside the ring for €5,000, selling to Northern Ireland.
