This is the first bull I've owned and bought him last year to sweep up after AI. Just thought I'd throw him into the thread when I had a mature pic. He's 32 months. Think he's grown well, although he isn't tall by Irish standards. He is standing a bit funny but he wasn't for moving. Bred from Sprys Patents Ace and an Irish bred cow (from a bull, Bushypark Enda 4th).//// Ive been going on the Societies issues and have seen a couple phenominal animals in Ireland-Its like the old days-Where does that magic come from? I wish the powers that be over there and or here would have a few beers or whatever and resume the back and forth on some of those genetics again O0

Ireland has been using North American and Australian genetics to improve the cattle here, however there are some great tradition Irish lines still here and when crossed with the imported semen the next generation are really improving. It takes both sides of the genetics pool to really impress. We have used some UK genetics as well, but the resulting crosses don't always hit the high levels seen with the North American and Australian crosses.
The 100% Irish lines are getting rarer now however and there is an additional herd book to record them. It's important to keep these lines and increase these numbers again because of how well they cross with the other genetics.

I enjoy seeing mature bulls either in pictures or better yet, in the flesh. I think they tell you so much more than a calf picture does.
I have several mature bull pics in my picture files and I have attached some of them:

picture 1 is a picture I snapped of Alta Cedar Ultimate 130K as an 8 year old at Muridale. This was taken after he had been pulled from the breeding pasture.
Picture 2 is a really old one. This is Highfield Irish Mist at 12 years of age, after breeding over 60 cows that summer. He oftentimes bred cows at 3 farms every year and oftentimes bred 90-100 cows each year naturally. I consider him to be my " once in a lifetime" bull.
Picture 3 is HC Free Spirit 6Y at 5 years of age. He had been breeding cows for 5 weeks when this picture was taken
Picture 4- NPS Improver 948 -  pictured here at 9 years of age. He was a TH free son of Deerpark Improver and Ka'Ba Rose T90.

I am really looking forward to my trip next week to Ireland and then on to England. I arrive in Dublin Saturday morning, August 10th and I will spend the next 4 days there.  I will also  be attending the Tullamore show which hosts the National breed shows for all breeds. I have heard the entries for most shows are some of the strongest ever, so I expect to see a lot of interesting cattle. Then on to England for another several days. Almost two weeks isn't enough to see everything, but it is a good start!   Hoping to see as many Shorthorn herds as I can. I expect to see some excellent cattle.
