FOUNDED in 2002 by a small group of enthusiastic individuals, the NI Dexter Cattle Group has grown from strength to strength over time.
Not only has the number of breeders grown, but also the number of Dexters, and indeed the quality of cattle throughout Northern Ireland has also increased over this period.
This was particularly evident throughout the summer show season, where a magnificent display of Dexter cattle was seen at nearly every show throughout the Province.
As well as being regulars on the agricultural show circuit, the NI Dexter Cattle Group has had an action-packed year of events with young breeders’ days, sales, barbecues and herd visits. To round off the celebratory year the NI Dexter Cattle Group is holding an event in La Mon Hotel and Country Club on October 8.
Kicking off at 10am with the UK Dexter Cattle Society AGM, followed by the NI Group AGM, the afternoon will feature a series of talks and seminars.
The day will conclude with a presentation dinner taking place in the evening, followed by some fantastic entertainment, making this a night not to be missed.
For more details of the event be sure to check out the group’s website, www.nidextercattlegroup.com or social media accounts. Alternatively, tickets can be purchased from committee member Andrew on 07882 809248.
