Tullamore Show 2013

Tullamore National Livestock Show 2013

Ridgefield Dundee Portea claims Senior Holstein Friesian Championship for Pat & Derrick Frawley
The forecast of passing showers failed to materialise as 60,000 people attended the Tullamore Show & AIB National Livestock Show 2013. It is now firmly established as the biggest livestock show in the country and the entries for this year were an increase on last year. Spectators gathered around the Holstein Friesian judging rings to enjoy the top class cattle competing for substantial prize money and National Livestock Show titles.

Judge was Mr John Cousar, from Kilmarnock, Ayrshire, Scotland. John and his family run the “Howcommon” herd of 120 pedigree Holsteins. He is a respected judge in the UK, is also on the European Holstein Federation’s Recommended judges panel. He has judges numerous UK Regional shows and National shows in Denmark, Poland and the Azures. John is no stranger to Ireland as he previously judged the YMA National Calf Show, the IHFA National Herds Competition in 2009 and also judged the Northern Ireland herds competition in 2012.
John’s first task was to judge the confined classes for breeders in Laois, Offaly and Westmeath. The winners of these classes went to Pascal & Irene Walsh, Edenderry, Peter Ging, Portlaoise, Aisling Neville, Tullamore, Michael Booth, Stradbally, PJ & John Kelly, Rochfortbridge.  Judge Cousar also judged both Showmanship classes for u 16 & under 26 years. Classes were judged in an efficient manner such that the milking classes were soon in the ring. At all times Judge Cousar was quick to praise all exhibitors for the quality of the animals on show. Particular highlights were; 15 calves in the 2013 Calf class, a very strong Junior Championship line-up, tremendous In-Milk heifer class, an exceptional Senior Cow class and a Senior Championship line-up befitting its National Livestock show title. Judge Cousar in his reason-giving said it had both a pleasure to judge this class, though it was difficult to place the cows as “Each cow exhibited is worthy of a Senior Cow title”
Judge of the Irish Pure Friesian Classes was Mr. Stephen Girwan from Northern Ireland. Mr Girwan was fulsome in his praise of the Irish Pure Friesian cows on show and complimented the breeders for their hard work and dedication in bringing out such quality stock.
