Carrick-on-Shannon Winter Fatstock Show and Sale
The Midland & Western Livestock improvement Society Ltd. have distributed their Schedules for their 2012 Winter Fatstock Show & Sale to be held in Carrick-on-Shannon on November 25th and 26th next.
The Schedule outlines all the Classes for the various Breeds along with the very attractive Prizes kindly sponsored by the Society’s many loyal and generous Sponsors.
The Society’s President, Martin O’Connor acknowledging the support of all Sponsors said “this Event would not be possible to host without the generosity of all our Sponsors”.
As well as the Irish Charolais Cattle Society, the Irish Limousin Cattle Society, the Irish Simmental Cattle Society, the Irish Aberdeen Angus Association, the Irish Angus Cattle Society and the Irish Belgian Blue Cattle Society donating generous financial support to the Event, the Irish Blonde D’Aquitaine Cattle Society will feature once again this year with their Beef Bonanza Event which consists of three exhibit classes with over €5,000 in Prizemoney.
The Show begins with the RDS Young Stockperson Class sponsored by the Royal Dublin Society for young Show Exhibitors between 12 and 17 years and concludes with the Class for Best Pair of Weanlings.
The Society themselves are sponsoring a new Class in the 2012 Schedule – Best Butchers Heifer – 600kgs. and under, which they feel will attract a good entry.
