ENTRY forms are out for the forthcoming joint Calf Show to be held by the NI Hereford Breeders’ Club and NI Beef Shorthorn Club at Dungannon Farmers’ Mart on Saturday November 13, commencing 10am.
This is the first time that these clubs have joined forces, and a full range of classes are lined up to ensure that this makes for a great event. Schedules include calf classes for bulls and heifers, and the ever popular young handlers section.
The Beef Shorthorns have also listed a class for commercial calves.
The Herefords are set to be judged by Catherine Smyth, Armulchan Herefords, who was the recent winner of the Senior Young Stockperson competition held in Tullamore.
Bill Landers will be making the trip from Scotland to place the Beef Shorthorns. He runs the Cairnsmore herd in partnership with his wife Jane.
Club members are encouraged to enter for this show as it is always a great flagship event, and the perfect way to meet up with new and established breeders. It is also anticipated that spectators will travel the length and breadth of the country to attend!
Entries close at the end of October.
