SOUTH EAST BEST HEIFER 2010 “ Elite Forever Free.

SOUTH EAST BEST BULL 2010 “ Elite Forever Brilliant.

SOUTH EAST BEST GROUP OF CALVES “ Noel Brennan“ tremendous young stock potentially better than the cows.

General Comments

  • We saw some tremendous females.
  • On the whole cattle were very docile

Think some of the small herds may be using too many bulls. I think they would be better using 2 or 3 bulls at the most as it is hard to get a true  representation off just one or two calves on the ground by a bull.





Tinahely Show, Co Wicklow which is one of the Premier shows in Ireland   was the venue for the 2011 North East Calf Finals. The North East club which has a large number of  breeders has always viewed their calf finals as one of the main events of the year and has always been well supported.
