THENI Beef Shorthorn Club have recently had a fantastic night at their annual dinner held at the Greenvale Hotel, Cookstown.
Club Chairman Tom McGuigan opened the evening with a warm welcome to all, including special guest Pamela Nicholl who had recently judged the Annual Herds Competition.
Following a first class meal, Pamela got to work with a comprehensive list of results right across all of the pedigree and commercial categories.
Coming out on top overall was Alfie Shaw’s Glebefarm prefix which scooped the Best Herd in NI for the second year running. Richard Henning also chalked up success as his Mullaglass herd was placed runner-up.
It was great to see so many new faces join in this year with a strong entry right across all sections of the herds competition. Tom McGuigan presented Pamela with a Belleek lamp by way of thanks.
The next event in the NI Beef Shorthorn Club’s calendar of events is the Calf Show which takes place at Dungannon Mart on Saturday November 12.
