Our seller and Breeder: Stephen Crampton is based in Shinrone, Offaly. Grew up with Suckler cows before switching to commercial beef stock. The pedigree enterprise was started in 2021 with the purchase of our foundation Limousin heifer Millburn Pretty for €18,500. Following this two further purchases were made with a foundation Charolais heifer Goldstar Prada for €7,400 and a Belgian blue Rathlyon Kate. Further embryos were purchased from the Trueman, Ardnacrusha and Milbrook Herds with some exceptional Breeding females retained. The cornerstone of the business was to buy the most elite stock possible to facilitate the breeding of outstanding bulls and heifers to offer for sale.
