The Irish Pedigree Cattle Breeders Council held their All Star Awards evening on Friday 3rd February 2023 in the Midland’s Park Hotel, Portlaoise.
The event began in 2020 and was hoped to be an annual event but the covid-19, like with all other events, put a halt to the plan. The Council were delighted to be able to get back to business again and a very enjoyable evening was had by all.
The nominee for the Hereford award was Supreme National Hereford Champion 2022; Shancorpoll 1 Uakea, bred by Brian Duignan of Shancor Herefords, Cavan.
This April 2021 born heifer is sired by Fabb 1 Northern Star and bred from Solpoll 1 Kentucky Kid and Corlismore bred dam. The heifer was outstanding during the National Show and was purchased before the end of the following week by a spectator at the show.
We wish all at Shancor Herefords continued success and look forward to seeing them again this Summer on the show circuit.
