Our main sire for several years, ZLL, was a red angus and probably the most consistently top ranked ICBF bull of all time of any breed. His genetics are a strong component across all our herd today. Malcolm was another very influential sure we owned in the past. His first daughter to be shown achieved first in class and overall reserve champion in 2010 and continued to win in 2011. In 2012 and 2013 we won 3 rosettes in Ossory and one in the All Ireland. 2014 saw his grand daughter, No 970, win the All Ireland Aberdeen-Angus senior heifer. In 2015, a grandson, Dalriada 1366 was Champion at Newcastlewest show. In 2022 we had the winning red angus cow in Limerick show.

ICBF report that we have more high DBI angus females than almost any other herd in the country. Dalraida Red Perfection standing in Bova has now become an internationally sought after red angus.
Right now, in 2023 we have some top of the range heifers to sell. Many are red-carriers.

This is great news because it shows that we are at the leading edge of Irish Aberdeen Angus genetics and also that we are disease free. It has taken hard work with a herd of our size.
May 2016 The Irish National farm advisory agency, Teagasc, went public with their use of Deep Canyon (AI code ZLL) sons in their model suckler herd. After extensive searches, they bought four Dalriada bulls from us. It was based on purely the factual performance and reliability data available.
