Tipperary Bull Sales

This is not a regular sale, if you wish to attend the sale you must book in, by ringing us on 062-51129

 Angus,  Hereford,  Limousin, etc. bulls for sale.

Please note that how calving difficulty is measured has changed totally last year. Now calving difficulty is divided into 4 sections, i.e. for a dairy cow, for a dairy heifer, for a suckler cow and for a suckler heifer. This catalogue shows calving difficulty for dairy cows not beef cows, as the major proportion of our buyers are dairy producers.

For Hereford bulls anything less than 4.5 for DC CALV DIF is very low,

and for Angus less than 2.8 for DC CALV DIF is very low.

To compare the old figures with the new, click here.

This catalogue gives the DC CALV DIF (Dairy cow calving difficulty) and the DH CALV DIF (Dairy heifer calving difficulty).
Please do not confuse this with the BC (Beef cow) or BH (beef heifer) calving difficulty given for reference by other sellers.
Examples on catalogue are;
Lot 702 = dairy cow calving difficulty is 4.5%, but his beef cow calving difficulty is only 0.9%.
Lot 707 = DC CALV DIFF is 3.4%, but his BC CALV DIFF is 2.3%
Lot 712 = DC CALV DIFF is 1.5%, but his BC CALV DIFF is 0.6%

2a Advice to purchasers.

Bulls should always be unloaded into a closed yard or shed with other cattle; this is most important. He will have been reared and handled in a group and will become uneasy if on his own. He will settle down in a strange place much quicker with company.

Remember a bull of any breed can be dangerous and must be always treated with respect.

Bulls may take a while to get used to a change in feed regime, but he should adjust to his new regime in a short time.

Children should never help load or unload bulls as this is when bulls can be most dangerous.
