CHESTERMANN SIMMENTAL HEIFERS IN EXPORT SALE TO REPUBLIC OF IRELAND
The Chestermann Simmental herd of Messrs N&N Gwynne, Castlewigg Farm, Newton Stewart, have secured a private sale of two pedigree maiden heifers for export to the Republic of Ireland. Both heifers have been purchased by Mr. Declan Rouse as foundation females for his new and establishing Enniscrone pedigree herd in Enniscrone, Co. Sligo.
Chestermann Data Stella 3, a June 2018 born heifer is by the herd sire Overhill House Data 12 and is out of Chestermann Ringleader Stella. Overhill House Data 12, bred by Richard McCulloch, West Lothian, is a past Junior Male Champion at the Royal Highland Show and has also bred a first prize winner for the Chestermann herd at the 2019 Scottish Simmental National Show at Kelso.
The second heifer to be sold, the October 2018 born Chestermann Empire Stella 2, is by Sterling Empire 13, and is out of the Kilbride Farm Wick daughter, Chestermann Wick Stella.
The purchaser, Mr Rouse first saw videos of the heifers on the newly launched Simmental Market (www.simmentalmarket.co.uk), a website created by the British Simmental Cattle Society to promote Simmental stock and bring buyers and sellers together, during the ongoing Covid-19 situation.
Commenting, he said, “Both of these heifers carry a combination of femininity, style, and depth of breeding and I’m delighted to have bought them for my herd.”
The sale of these heifers follows hard on the heels of a previous export sale from the Chestermann herd to Ireland in February this year when the April 2018 born heifer Chestermann Data Mali 3, another Overhill House Data 12 daughter sold to the Dripsey Herd of Mr & Mrs Cotter, Co. Cork after they had seen her on a herd visit.
