Our vendor, Niall Stoddart’s herd known as Longford Parthenaise is based between Portumna and Ballinasloe, Co Galway. Niall's farm comprises of a Spring calving Purebred and Continental suckler herd, Purebred Blue Texel sheep and tillage. Niall breeds Parthenaise stock for “Power and Style”. In late 2005 Niall came across the Parthenaise Breed by chance while working on Anthony Scally's farm in Co. Westmeath owner of the well-known Ailsbury herd. There were some stylish bulls in a shed that immediately caught Niall's Eye. Niall purchased a bull called “Ailsbury Victor,” he knew that Victor was an investment and would bring the power and style with his limousin cows. With the addition of Victor to the herd, Longford Parthenaise was established in 2006, The same year Niall made a trip to France where he purchased his first Parthenaise Female Trio of an in-calf cow carrying a heifer calf, with a heifer calf at foot breed by the renowned Lassie Herd in France. In 2007 Niall bought another cow in France and became involved with the Irish Parthenaise society. When Niall got married in 2009 the society kindly gave him a wedding present of a heifer from the Boley Herd breed by William Shiel, Co. Laois. These cows have formed the foundation for his twenty purebred cows in the herd today from there on it was the start of an exciting journey for Niall at Longford Parthenaise. The development of the herd over the years has attracted local and international buyers from the UK & Greece. Niall is a strong believer in recording breeding records and weight data and has consistently found the Parthenaise breed to exceed expectations for weight gain from birth to weaning. Another major factor for Niall was the docility of the breed. Niall has always used top 5-star bulls and preferably French outcrosses namely “Taisa, Eturdi and Implosif. The French Junior champion Eturdi was stock bull on the farm for 3 breeding seasons between 2010-2012 Eturdi” did a fantastic job stamping his progeny with style and shape.
Romeo is a good bull for a new entrant into Parthenaise, he will bring good size to his offspring, with potential for great shape and style and retaining females off him will be a good foundation to any herd be it commercial or pedigree. Romeo boasts strong figures €131 for replacement, €145 terminal, making him 5 stars on both sides of the breed. Romeo has a calving difficulty of 2.3% on cows, and 5.0% on heifers. Longford Romeo's Sire was bred by Brian Byrnes “Rathpierce Herd Mike” Co. Wexford and Dam: Longford Hutilite, is one of the stronger cows in the herd. The dam can be viewed on the farm.
