Frewstown Frewsone ~ Sired by Carmorn Cantona and born May 2010

CantonaThe current stock bull at Frewstown is “Carmorn Cantona” who is sired by Vantastic. The sale includes his first calves which show great promise. Cantona chalked up much acclaim in 2010 when he was awarded the Best Young Bull in NI during the annual herd’s competition judged by Craig Ridley, in addition to Champion at Ballymena Show and Reserve Male Champion at Balmoral.

Derek has been enthusiastic about Limousin cattle since he was first introduced to them over 25 years ago. With a successful butchers shop in Broughshane St, Ballymena Derek has a full understanding as to exactly what is required in a beef animal – and in his opinion Limousin fits the bill exactly.
“I have found Limousin an easy breed to work with that has the ability to flesh up and produce a top notch carcase to ideally suit today’s marketplace”. Derek tells Farming Life.
Attention to maintaining high health within the herd has resulted in Derek joining the AFBI scheme, and has tested clear for BVD and Johnes. All stock catalogued are vaccinated for BDV and Lepto.
The sale will be held under the auspices of the British Limousin Cattle Society which means that all lots will be transferred to members without charge.

Viewing on farm prior to the sale is most welcome and can be arranged by contacting Derek Frew on 07920076220. The sale takes place at Ballymena Mart on Wednesday 16th March, 6pm.
