THE prospective herd sires and dams of the next generation of Hereford cattle will be on show in Dungannon Farmers’ Market as it hosts the NI Hereford Breeders’ Association United Feeds Calf Show on Saturday, November 9.
The event is free and open to all. It will give a great insight to the qualities of the breed. Judging will commence at 11am with an entry of almost 50 calves in all classes. This promises to be an exciting line-up from the top herds across Northern Ireland.
Judging this year will be in the very capable hands of Richard Jackson, Leyland, Lancashire. Richard runs the Eveter herd and is relishing the task of casting his eye over the many entries placed before him.
He has noted the strength of the cattle coming out of Northern Ireland to the mainland in the past years and welcomes the opportunity to bear witness to this first hand.
The association would like to take this opportunity to thank United Feeds for its continued support and sponsorship.
With this support the NIHBA is able to put on a fine display for the promotion of the Hereford breed.
