€3,500 for top Gigginstown bull

The top price paid for one of Gigginstown’s bulls on Easter Saturday was €3,500.

Murtagh Bros., Auctioneers handled the Angus sale and 44 lots were available on the day.  Of the 44 lots available, 36 were sold at auction, and another five lots were sold privately immediately afterwards, a clearance rate of 93%, which is very impressive given the weakness in cattle sales in 2014 to date. Lot No. 8 was the top selling bull on the day. Giggingtown House Passing was born October 17, 2012. He was sired by Friarstown Empire. Passing has a replacement index of €191 and a terminal index of €46.

“We’d like to thank all of the purchasers who supported the sale on the day,” Paul Murtagh told Agriland.

The highest priced heifer was Giggingstown House Mahogany, born February 11, 2012. She was sired by Penguin Mr Elevate. Mahogany has a replacement index of €84.
