First Irish Polled Simmental export took place this week

Monday 19 March 2012

The first Irish polled Simmental export took place this week, when Celtic Comet was exported to David and Lesley Sapsed''s Heathbrow Herd in Codicote, Hertfordshire. The Sapsed''s whose herd is of the leading UK show herds have been breeding polled Simmentals for over 10 years and first spotted the calf in Angela and Gerard Brickley''s herd when visiting some Irish herds last summer. They returned recently to buy the bull ahead of the Simmental Society Sale later this month in Roscommon and hope to have him on the show circuit in the UK this year. It is planned to have semen from Comet available later in the year.
