The Irish Angus Cattle Society will host its elite show and sale on 10 December 2022 at the Showgrounds, Carrick-on-Shannon.
The morning will kick off with a pre-sale show at 9am and a total of 111 pre-inspected bulls and heifers will take to the sales ring at 12pm.
Among the 61 bulls and 50 heifers of key interest for potential buyers will be a large mix of old and new genetics, with Irish Angus Cattle Society president Sean Kilkenny commenting: “We deem this a truly elite sale that has something for everyone."
The annual sale will see a number of prizewinners and all-Ireland winners from summer shows throughout the year go through the ring, with all stock export and myostatin tested.
The Irish Angus Cattle Society is offering a €400 premium to the purchaser of the top-priced bull and heifer and a €200 premium for the purchaser of the second-highest priced bull and heifer on the day.
Sean added: “Purchasers of all other bulls and heifers at €3,000 or over will be entered into a raffle for a €400 premium.
“In addition, we are giving new members free membership to the Irish Angus Cattle Society for 2023 who purchase a female at the elite sale and will also cover the cost of her first calf registration,” he concluded.
