Could this be the final show at the nostalgic Balmoral Show Grounds? No better tribute than the excellent Pedigree Calf Fair to give the old showgrounds a fitting sendoff. This being the third year of the event, the Pedigree Calf Fair @ Beef NI Expo have announced that the 2017 event will take place at the Balmoral Showgrounds on Saturday 18th November. Many breeders still enjoy reminiscing of past times spent at the showgrounds, and no doubt this year’s championship accolades will be hotly contested across the 10 breeds presented at the show.
The one-day industry forum is organised in partnership with the 10 Breed Societies & Clubs of Northern Ireland, bringing the finest young stock from across the province, together under one roof. It has attracted continued sponsorship from MSD Bovipast RSP®, HVS Liquid Gold, Bank of Ireland, Topstock, and Devenish Nutrition.
The full day is setting up an impressive schedule featuring classes for beef breeds, both native and continental, and also includes showmanship classes for handlers aged 12 to 21-years-old.
Judging will commence at 10.00am, and with three showrings operational throughout the day. The 10 top breed judges from across Ireland and the UK, will select their 60 class winners, who then compete for the senior and junior championship titles, climaxing with a parade of champions at 3.30pm.
