THE 18th Multi-Breed Dairy Calf Show is to be held at Dungannon Farmers’ Mart on Friday, August 20.
The event has attracted a bumper entry of more than 150 Ayrshire, Holstein and Jersey calves, and will also feature more than 50 showmanship competitors. Judging gets underway at 10am sharp.
The Holstein section of the catalogue will come under scrutiny from Scottish judge David Gray, Grayridge.
The Holstein calf classes are generously sponsored by Thompsons, with World Wide Sires confirming its continued commitment to the showmanship section of the show. The exhibitor-bred championship award is kindly supported by Western Farm Enterprises.
Scottish judge Kevin Lawrie, Brieryside, will place the entries in the Ayrshire section. United Feeds continues its support of the calf classes while the showmanship classes are sponsored by OB Construction. The Ulster Ayrshire Cattle Club is also indebted to Alison Beattie from Farm Wardrobe for her continued sponsorship.
Mr Gray will also cast his expert eye
over the Jersey calf and showmanship classes.
Spectators will be expected to follow the Covid-19 guidelines as outlined by the venue and the organisers.
