The show, principally sponsored by Weatherbys and Melton Mowbray Market, will include classes for bulls and females born between 1 January 2011 and 31 October 2012 with up to 80 stalls, refundable by the society, available for entries. Classes will be judged by David Murray, Forfar, Angus, with £250 of prize money up for grabs in each class and a total prize fund of £1,000 for the championship classes.

BCCS chairman Alasdair Houston said: “We are pleased to stage our National Charolais Show for the first time at the Livestock Event, the sector’s largest business to business event held at the most easily accessed venue in the UK. Stall booking fees will be refunded by the society for animals that turn up and we’re offering £4,500 prize money.

Furthermore, the Charolais cattle will be stalled in one of the temperature controlled exhibition halls adjacent to the breeding companies designated area and the showing will take place in an indoor show ring protected from any inclement weather.”

Mr Houston continued: “This will be a great opportunity for breeders to showcase their stock and for the breed to reinforce the message that modern British Charolais calve well, grow well, weigh well and pay well.”
