The Commercial Cattle section is a major element within the Tullamore Show and FBD National Livestock Show.  The section has grown from strength to strength with a whopping prize fund of €20,000 this year.  This should ensure to attract some very competitive excitement on show day, 11th August.


The exhibitors come from all corners of Ireland to compete for the ever sought after coveted Gold & Silver Medals. A win at Tullamore Show for an exhibitor is the pinnacle of success in the commercial cattle world.
