On Saturday June 08th the Irish Charollais Sheep Society will hold their All Ireland Championships at Cillín Hill Co.Kilkenny.

We are also delighted to confirm that we have Greenvale Feeds as sponsors of our event. Greenvale have been associated with the Irish Charollais Society for more years than we care to remember and they are a huge asset to the success of the biggest annual showing competition on our calendar.

Hosted by the NSBA Red Mills Sheep Championships we are very happy to be involved for the 2nd year of their event, which we are without doubt will be successful to showcase the sheep industry in Ireland. A full day of Charollais classes and displays are on the schedule. There will also be various sheep handling equipment companies on hand with their wares to make the life of a sheep farmer much simpler and less labour intensive! Therefore a great day out is guaranteed.

Six pedigree classes will start the day under the capable eye of Mr. Melvyn Matthews as he selects through the various range of top quality exhibits from breeders throughout the country to eventually decide his Champions.

Due to the success of the newly introduced ‘Group of 3’ in 2018, we are holding it again this year.

Mr. Willie McAllister has been appointed by the NSBA to judge the commercial classes and we encourage a strong representation of Charollais through these classes also. A very attractive prize fund is on offer so it’s definitely worth considering to promote the traits of the Charollais breed when crossed.

Entry forms will be circulated to all breeders next week but if you want to be emailed a copy pls contact Registrar.icss@gmail.com

Entry forms for the commercial classes can be obtained from nsbaireland@gmail.com

Charollais as the top terminal breed in the country are determined to make our mark this year in Kilkenny. Join the force and get those entries in.
