For those who missed our Summer Study tour of Fleckvieh in Austria, we're arranging a very similar tour in early September. Same farms, but with the addition of one day at the Ried Show - the largest livestock show in Austria this year, and celebrating 125 years of Flecvkieh Pedigree breeding in the Ried region of Austria. Program attached. Early booking discount until 19th August. Cost from €370 for B&B and transfers. Flights and other meals at own cost.
Selection of young stock bulls still available for the 2019 season, but they're going fast. Our Fleckvieh cross bull calves sold recently to average €353 in Carlow Mart. Some of the Black and whites on the day were as low as €3, but most sold from €10 to €80.
The Celtic Herd has a good selection of both in-calf heifers and weanlings for sale off farm. These heifers are Austrian born, and were selected in Jan to March 2016, prior to importation. They come from cows yielding between 6,000 and 9.000 litres, with good solids and have been AI bred for many generations. The in-calf heifers have been bred to some of the top proven Austrian Fleckvieh bulls - mostly to Ivan, Vox and Rumgo.The younger heifers were all born between Sept and Dec '16 and are well grown and healthy. They offer a value for money means of getting into some of these much sought after Fleckvieh bloodlines.
