The 2009 Summer show season was the Jalex herds 3rd season showing, and turned out to be the best yet, with 8 Champions being awarded and 2 reserve Champions, 17 1st places, 15 2nd places and just 7 3rds prizes.
We now have to wait and see what the Winter Shows will bring!
The MacPherson family from Oban are noted for being one of the leading commercial show men in the business and have a number of prestigious titles under their belt including Smithfield.
It is a real honour when folk with this kind of reputation purchase one of your cattle to join their show team.
They spotted our Limousin steer "Black Magic" after wins at Antrim Show where he was placed Champion and 1st at the NI Commercial Cattle Exhibitors Show at Moira. He was also Reserve Male Champion at Enniskillen Show.
Black Magic is sired by the Jockey son Crillaune Armani - semen available.
Following on from visits to the farm, Neil and Stuart Barclay finally made an offer we couldn't refuse for two of our most successful stock bulls "Tullygarley Alibaba" and "Ross Willie".
They have been very impressed with their progeny for a number of years now and felt that both of these bulls would be an asset to their large suckler enterprise in Aberdeenshire.
They also added a Ross Willie son to their shopping list for commercial use. He is bred from one of our best breeding Limousin cows "Middledale Timid".
Semen is available for Tullygarley Alibaba for immediate shipment.
Following on from a faultless track record of the now legendary "Black Beauty 1 and 2", the very smart younger sister "Black Beauty 5" is set to make her show debut this autumn under the new ownership of brother and sister team Sam & Sarah Matchett, Portadown.
Purchased at foot with her mother Black Beauty 5 is also sired by the successful Aberdeen Angus bull "Lisduff Duke" bred by Leo McEnroe.
We are delighted with how our Black N Blue Diesel calves are shaping up, and others are too!
He has now reached the number one spot for British Blue sales on Semenstore due to the high level of demand for his straws.
So what are you waiting for - order yours today!!
Stop press!! - Jalex are back in the headlines with their Tullygarley Alibaba sired charolais heifer "Flash".
Following on from show success this summer when Flash was placed Reserve Champion at Armagh, Antrim and the National charolais Show at Fintona she was recently snapped up by a leading commercial producer in the south of Ireland.
Flash was purchased for breeding, and also further showing. She made her debut at the recent Winter Fair held at Kilkenny where she was placed 2nd in a strong class of heifers.
As soon as Shakira hit the ground we thought she was pretty special. Sired by the successful Limousin stock bull Hightown Cassius, she offers the full package of quality and style.
Shakira made her debut show appearance at the NI Limousin Club Calf Spectacular held in Moira where she was Reserve Champion amidst stiff competition.
She was spotted by Derbyshire based showman Andrew Dickinson, who purchased her to add to his show team. She made her next appearance at the Beef Expo held recently in Carlisle where she tipped the scales at 220 kilos.
Despite being one of the youngest on show, this July born heifer secured a 4th place award in a class of 14. She now heads to "Smithfield" at the East of England Show later this week.
