The North West Calf Finals were hosted by Swinford Agricultural Show on Saturday 20th August. This annual event which rotates throughout the club area saw a large entry of calves forward. The competition consisted of six classes, three classes of bulls and three classes of heifers, with the six 1st prize winners competing for an Overall Champion. The winner of the Overall Championship being awarded with a new trophy The Michael Dale Perpetual Cup presented by the club in memory of Michael Dale who had been a great stalwart of the North West Club and who had promoted both the breed and the club throughout the province and country along with representing the North West Club at Council level. With 35 calves entered in there was no doubt that breeders were anxious to be the first recipient of such a coveted award.

Judge on the day was Mr Peter Murphy of the  Carrickaldreen Herd, Mullaghbawn, Co Down, a man who had bred two winners and a third place in the All Ireland Bull Derby.
