Dyfri Idris, the Junior Male Champion Limousin at this years’ Royal Welsh Show, has been sold by his breeders, DG & MJ Edwards & Son of Home Farm, Cilycwm, Llandovery, Carmarthenshire, in a significant five-figure private sale.
January 2013 born, this young bull attracted the attention of many at the show, including the Supreme Interbreed Champion judge, Mr Elgan Jones, of Coedmore Hall, who together with his wife, Nesta, and daughter, Emily, are the new owners of Idris.
Dyfri Idris’ sire is the 50,000gns Wilodge Cerberus, and his dam is the homebred Nectar daughter, Dyfri Elle. His maternal grand dam is one of the great Jockey daughters in the Dyfri Herd, Undeg, who is full sister to Neutron, the top priced Limousin sold in the UK in 1998 for 14,000gns.
Idris will go to work on the Coedmore Hall herd of exceptional commercial cows, and was purchased by the Jones family on the strength of his outstanding carcase qualities, coupled with a strong background of calving ease and good maternal traits.
These traits are backed up by his high Beef Value of LM44 which puts him well in the top 1% of the breed for growth and muscle, coupled with a calving value of LM2, which is significantly higher than the breed average.
Over the last 20 years or more Elgan, Nesta and Emily Jones have invested consistently in the best Limousin bulls that are available, and their calves have featured heavily in the commercial markets and showrings of the UK.
The Dyfri Limousin herd was established in 1984 and presently consists of 70 breeding females. As well as private sales the herd is a regular consignor of bulls to Society Sales at both Brecon and Carlisle markets respectively.
