The Northern Ireland Commercial Cattle Exhibitors’ Club has unveiled its first-ever Yearbook which is aimed at promoting the club and its members.
Launching the NI Commercial Cattle Exhibitors' Club's inaugural Yearbook are club secretary, Dr Ryan Law,
and vice-chairman, John Killen.
The brightly coloured A5 journal is the culmination of several months of planning and hard work by members of the club’s committee.
The 146-page book features a full round-up of photographs and results from Provincial agricultural shows throughout the 2010 show season. It includes a full report on last year’s Balmoral Show, as well as in-depth coverage from the club’s showcase 6th annual show held at Moira, the final of the Ulster Bank Breeding Heifer championship, and pictures from the club’s annual dinner and presentation of awards.
The 2010 Moira Show champion, Xtra Factor, owned by Clive Hoey is pictured on the front cover. The contents of the booklet also features reports from leading fatstock shows around the country, including the Province’s premier beef event – Allam’s 87th annual Christmas show and sale at Balmoral.
A brief summary of the club’s history is also outlined in the booklet, as well as a comprehensive diary highlighting forthcoming shows and events for commercial cattle enthusiasts, and a list of approved fatstock show judges.
Club chairman, Ben Sinnamon said:”A lot of work has gone on behind the scenes to compile the club’s inaugural Yearbook. I would like to congratulate our club secretary, Ryan Law, and his assistants for their hard work and dedication at producing such an excellent publication. Thanks also to everyone who contributed towards to the content of the Yearbook.”
“We are also indebted to the large number of sponsors, local businesses, breed societies, and individuals who purchased advertisements in the Yearbook. Their overwhelming response represents a vote of confidence in our club, and strong support for our new Yearbook.”
The Northern Ireland Commercial Cattle Exhibitors’ Club was founded in 2003 to promote the interests of commercial showmen and women. Classes for commercial beef cattle have been introduced to the schedule at many of the Provincial agricultural shows, and have been well supported by sponsors, exhibitors and spectators alike.
Membership of the Northern Ireland Commercial Cattle Exhibitors’ Club is £20 per annum.
