Gavan Summit is the Irish Shorthorn Society’s latest bull selected for the Gene Ireland Programme. This very heavy muscled bull is the first son of Patent’s Ace G38 to stand at stud in the Northern Hemisphere. His dam is a daughter of Alta Cedar Perfect Storm 11U, who’s pedigree traces back to the Sloehill herd of the late Larry Lavin, Strokestown. Summit was a very impressive calf from the moment he was dropped, and was a favourite with visitors during his time at the collection centre. He should work well on red coloured cows to breed flashy roan calves.
