A Westmeath breeder showed the ‘crème de la crème’ Charolais of the year when his 14-month-old bull topped the Irish Charolais Cattle Society Christmas Crackers sale at Elphin Mart on Saturday.

An export buyer paid €16,600 for Lisnagree Peder from the herd of Jim Geoghegan, of Lisnagree, Streamstown, Mullingar, after a combination of ringside and online bids.
