Baylin, Athlone, Co Westmeath
The Bovine section has always been a major part of Athlone Agri Show. In the past it has attracted entries from we every part of Ireland and has ensured keen competition for prize money. This year we look forward to a large entry of both pedigree and commercial cattle. In the pedigree section we hope to provide classes in the following breeds. Angus. Hereford. Shorthorn. Saler. Simmental. Charolais. Limousine and Belgium Blue.
As commercial cattle are the main stay of the Irish beef industry we hope that the importance of commercial cattle will be reflected in a large entry. In the near future classes for the various breeds will be available on the Website.
Without sponsorship the show would not go ahead and this year we have a number of new sponsors. I would like to thank them for their support and I look forward to the opportunity of meeting with them on Sunday 23th June in their hospitality tent.
