The Irish Hereford Breed Society are delighted to be able to host a National Hereford Show 2021, in-line with Covid-19 safety advice and Government guidelines.
The show will take place on Sunday 12th September 2021 on the grounds of the Annaharvey Equestrian Centre located just outside Tullamore.
The show will follow the same rules and classes as would normally be the case with the National Hereford Show which is generally held as part of the Tullamore show each August. All male cattle and first time calving females entered must be genotyped and each entry must be accompanied with their zootechnical certificate. Entries for the show classes will be online only and will open at the beginning of August – more information to follow.
The show will be run fully in line with the Government health & safety advice in regard to the Covid-19 situation at that time. The society are hoping to welcome visitors to spectate but it will essentially depend on the numbers allowed attend outdoor gatherings at that time. There will be an online ticketing system used for all entries at the gate whereby all tickets will have to be purchased in advance of the day – in order to gage numbers and comply with contact tracing.
The society are delighted to be able to host this event and will ensure it is organised to the highest standards of health and safety and will hopefully be rewarding for exhibitors after two summers with no shows.
