Classes for commercial cattle section
Head of Section Michael Dolan Contact No 086-8251931
The standard and quality of animals exhibiting in the AIB National Livestock Show is a sight to behold. Classification of livestock includes the introduction of weight denominated classes.
A number of new classes for the factory type animal has also been introduced.
This year we have added two new Limousin X classes, offering a Limousin Male X calf weighing up to 400kg and a Limousin Female X Calf weighing up to 360kg.
The prize fund is very attractive with a huge increase in recent years.
Young people are not forgotten, with Young Stockperson of the Year classes especially for those aged between 12 to 16 years and also for those aged 16 to 26 years, to encourage them to get involved too. This is a great platform to showcase and reward the talent of our young competitors with the effort they put in.
New Class Stockman's Challenge has been added this year in order to reward exhibitors for their participation in the Commercial Cattle classes at Tullamore Show & AIB National Livestock Show.
2 rings will operate for part of the day with two judges present
