Notice for Breeders: Proposal of Young Bull for AI

Dear breeder,

 

Some AI companies have recently shown interest in possibly purchasing a young Aubrac bull to take semen from and distribute it at bull of the day price.

The Irish Aubrac Society would like to put together a list of possible bulls that might suit these AI companies. We are asking breeders to put forward only 1 bull in their herd that they think could be suitable.

This animal must fit the following criteria.

  • The bull must not have been in a TB closed herd for his lifetime
  • The bull must not have covered cows
  • He must be born between the 1st of January 2015 and 28th of February 2016
  • He must be 4 or 5 stars in replacement index
  • He must be 3 or 4 stars minimum in terminal index
  • Calving difficulty must be under 5 %
  • He must be docile
  • Dam must have good milk and calving interval

If you think you have a bull that could be suitable, please detach the bottom of this page and return to the Society’s office  (Irish Aubrac Society ; Deerpark Farm Services ; Carrick On Suir ; Co. Tipperrary) no later than November the 15th  2016. Alternately you can email the tag number of the animal to Angela Lacey (angela.lacey@deerparkfarmservices.com) by the same date. Only bulls put forward in writing will be accepted.

Should you wish to have more information, please call James Donnellan (Chairman) on 086 8379057 or Mireille McCall (Secretary) on 086 3451373.
