The North West Limousin Club held a very successful Open Day and Young Members’ Association (YMA) event last Saturday, August 6th, on Donal Byrne’s farm.

There was a large turn out of adults and younger members, with both a cattle judging competition and a clipping and showing demonstration taking place on the day; a safety talk and video were delivered by Adrian Maye from Dynamic Safety Solutions.

In addition, Leo Forkan from Mayo Animal Health Care gave a talk on animal health and nutrition, while Kiernan Milling also gave a talk on animal health and feed; they also kindly donated 30 goodie bags to the younger members. Moreover, Paul Sikes gave a talk on the Limousin breed and traits.

The club also organized four teams of commercial cows with Limousin-sired calves to be on display, which demanded a lot of attention from local farmers and thus, helping promote the Limousin breed.

Guests were treated to teas, coffees, soft drinks, sandwiches and sausage rolls, and the host also had goodie bags for younger members.

The day was topped off with the visit of an ice cream van – to the delight of both young and old, as the temperature soared. All-in-all a fantastic and safe day was had by all.

Tricia Kennedy was on hand to capture the action and the photos can be viewed in the gallery below.
