23/07/2018 - Tullow Sheep Mart Report

The Tullow Sheep Breeders Association held their Annual Pairs night on Monday last the 23rd July 2018.


The evening was a tremendous success with over 22 pairs of ewe lambs presented for showing and over 20 pairs of Suffolk X hogget Ewes presented for showing also with the Cheviot classes also strongly supported.


The evening showcases all that is good and exceptional about the Suffolk Cheviot X breeding with the Suffolk ram and the Wicklow Cheviot being the maternal strengths to the breed.


The Sheep Breeders Committee noted that they were preparing for their 31st Annual Show & Sale in Tullow and this was a tremendous success to any breed society to be building and showcasing thirty one years of sheep production in the South East of Ireland.


A warm word of congratulations to all our prize winners.
