This online sale hosted by Henry Savage & Sons (Trueman) and Jim & Joe Quail (Lynderg) brought together some of the very best young Limousin cattle offered for auction in recent times.

The sale leader Trueman Rosanna caught the eye of many in the run up to the sale and attracted a flurry of bidding with the successful buyers at 16,000 guineas being Pat, Gearoid & Padraic Kennedy, Portlaoise, Co. Laois for their Coolrain Herd. This maiden heifer is sired by Telfurs Munster and out of the Ampertaine Elgin daughter Trueman Indie, a daughter of the herd matriarch Trueman Euphonium.

Selling at 7600 guineas was the baby of the sale Lynderg Renee. At just nine months of age this daughter of Lynderg Hero is an exciting prospect, and was snapped up by Trevor Shields for his Glenmarshal herd in Kilkeel.
Next best was the yearling heifer Trueman Rumba at 7,200 guineas,an Ampertaine Magnum daughter out of the Wilodge Vantastic bred Trueman Honey. She sold to Seamus Keady for his Shanna herd based in Spiddal, Co. Galway.
Realising 7,000 guineas was Trueman Roxy. Roxy is another Telfers Munster daughter and out of the Ampertaine Elgin bred Trueman Layla. She sold to Donal Byrne for his Big Red Limousin herd based in Ballyhaunis, Co. Mayo.

The sale leader at 16,000 guineas was this exceptional daughter of Telfers Munster snapped up by the Kennedy’s for their Coolrain herd based in Portlaoise. She was one of four daughters of Munster that returned an average of £8610.

Changing hands at 6400 guineas was Lynderg Ruby. Tracing back to the imported cow Orelie, Lynderg Ruby also has Ocean and Lynderg Hero in her pedigree. She was purchased by Seamus Keady, Galway.

A duo of lots attracted final bids of 6000 guineas. The first of these was Trueman Ruby who has an exceptional pedigree with Euphonium and Ampertain Abracadabra featuring.

The Queenshead Alta sired Trueman Rita realised 6000 guineas, and was purchased by D J Summers & Son, Hall farm, Somerby. She is a granddaughter of the legendary Trueman Euphonium.

The top priced young bull was Lynderg Rembrant, who now joins the Newhillfarm herd of Ryan McPolin at 5600 guineas. Rembrant is an exciting young bull by Lynderg Hero with tremendous style and width of loin. The McPolins now plan to show him at Balmoral in September.

Donal Byrne, from the Big Red herd based in Ballyhaunis, Co Mayo parted with 7000 guineas to secure Trueman Roxy.
