Ampertaine Gigolo Son Trueman Jagger sets new World Record at Carlisle selling for 140,000gns!!

It was a world record breaking day at Carlisle on Saturday 17th October when the April 2014 born Trueman Jagger from Henry Savage & Sons, Altnamackin, Newry, Co Down sold for a remarkable 140,000gns (£147,000).

On Friday at the pre-sale show Trueman Jagger had been placed as the Overall Supreme Champion & Intermediate Champion by the judge, and Irish Limousin Cattle Society Chairman, Kevin Bohan, Beechhill Farm, Doon, Co. Laois.  An embryo calf, Trueman Jagger is one of the first calves born to Ampertaine Gigolo and is out of the noted Trueman Grazia, a Haltcliffe Vermount daughter.

Speaking of his Champion bull the judge said:  “This bull just had got the lot.  He is the most powerful Champion bull I’ve seen with a super backend and top. With that he’s just full of class and style throughout, a truly exceptional Limousin bull and a great credit to the Savage family.”  Through the summer of 2015 Trueman Jagger had been placed as the Overall Male Champion, Reserve Overall Champion and Junior Interbreed Champion at the Royal Ulster Show at Balmoral.  

Breeding from the Ampertaine herd of James McKay, Upperlands, Maghera, Co. Derry was one of the features of the sale and the Reserve Overall Champion, and Reserve Intermediate Champion was another Ampertaine Gigolo son, Ampertaine Jamboree.
