The Premier Autumn Show and Sale will take place on Saturday 19th October in GVM Tullamore with a large number of quality stock for sale including; 41 bulls & 25 heifers, all of which have been inspected. The show will begin at 11am followed by the sale at 1pm.
This year, there is a new development afoot for the Premier sale; our team of 4 Young Irish breeders who will represent Ireland at the World Hereford Conference in New Zealand in March 2020 are hosting a grooming station in GVM Tullamore on the morning of the show and sale. Eoin, Katie, Michael & Sinead will be on hand to dress and groom cattle for any breeder that wishes to avail of the service. The team will be available to wash, dry, clip, brush & apply soap and other products from early that morning.
This idea was initiated by the team who are using initiative & drive to prepare for the Young Breeders Competition that they will compete in as part of the Conference. The Irish team will compete against teams from across the globe including; Australia, Denmark, Sweden, USA, UK and New Zealand, where each team will be responsible for preparing cattle for showing and leading them in the show ring. There will also be clipping & stock judging competitions for each team.
With the showing season well wrapped up and few opportunities left to practice their skills, Eoin, Katie, Michael & Sinead feel this is an opportunity not to be missed on their part to improve their skills and gain as much practice dressing & preparing cattle for showing as possible as well as being an opportunity for breeders to avail of a helping hand.
The Young Breeders will also be on hand to lead any animals during the show ànd/or sale and help in any way possible during the day.
The catalogue for this sale is now available (below) on our homepage & the Catalogues page of our website. There will be a Sale preview published on http://www.showstock.ie and all breeders are welcome to add photos or videos of their cattle to this preview by sending them onto ShowStock either through their Facebook page, e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or texting them on via Whats App on 0894715249 or you can send them onto the Society and we will forward them on.
