Celtic Sires progeny achieving top prices in Irish Simmental Breeding

Wednesday 08 May 2013

2012 was a very successfull year for Irish Simmental Breeders using Celtic Sires Semen.  Both the top price bull - Fearna Commander - a Glebefarm Tyson son who sold for €10,000  and Rathlee Caprice - a Curaheen Tyson daughter, who sold for €14,000, achieved the 2 top prices paid to Irish Simmental Breeders in 2012.  


This achievement was all the more significant when one realises that only 7% of Pedigree Simmental Calves registered in Ireland are by Celtic Sires semen.
