A Long Pines favorite, LP Irish Royalty BE11Y came from Maurice Boney in 2012 and earned his place as a herd sire. After serving us well, he was sold to Irish Black producers in Colorado, but his progeny continue to make their mark in the Irish Black breed. Deep bodied and heavily muscled, his parentage includes Polled Irish Perfect Balance, a son of IB1 “The Meat Wagon” and sire of well-known donor cow 555R. LP Irish Royalty BE11Y bred a full battery of cows for 7 seasons.
