Beltex Breeders all set for first show at Balmoral Park
Beltex breeders are looking forward to Balmoral Show which marks the start of the Northern Ireland show season.
Ayrshire based John Cowan will place the entry of Beltex sheep at the forthcoming Balmoral Show. Judging takes place on Wednesday 15th May, 9.30 am.
This year will be an extra special event as it will mark the first show in the new venue of Balmoral Park, Lisburn.
Classes commence at 9.30 am on Wednesday 15th May, with judging being in the capable hands of John Cowan, Ayrshire.
John runs the noted Brickrow flock of pedigree Beltex on his farm on the west coast of Scotland.
Commercial farmers are reaping the rewards of using a Beltex ram in their flocks, with the winning combination of easing lambing and high performance carcases adding to the bottom line province wide.
Beltex breeders invite sheep producers to call with them during Balmoral Show and see first hand what the breed can do for them. Stock will now remain at the show during the three days as there is much more space due to the excellent new facilities at Balmoral Park.
Beltex Scotland Open Day will be held at Chapelton of Menmuir, Brechin courtesy of the Alston family on the 21st of July. There will be chance to view the Drumchapel and Pentland flocks along with their other farming enterprises. Further details will be available in the press and club newsletter.
If you will require accommodation the night before please contact Graham Burke on 07547 369295 to book a room at the local hotel.
