One of Ireland’s oldest Aubrac cows?

In December of this year, ‘Dreylands Nolorgue Papine’ will celebrate her 18th Birthday and despite what many may think, she most certainly won’t be going into retirement anytime soon.

She continues to live a long productive life and has recently delivered yet another bull calf unassisted. 

Her own Paul Grace is more than satisfied with her consistent performance.

“The French Aubrac people have told me that the cow is the last remaining daughter alive in the world today by the legendary bull E Ratier Duches. He was the sire of Goeland amongst others. An absolutely fantastic pedigree.Some French breeders have asked me to not put the cow in-calf again and try and flush her.A priceless cow seemingly!!

The calf is by a Bull I recently sold to another breeder, a son of Poupeil who was imported from France and has been in the Ploughing match tent on one or two occasions.” Paul said.
