Ploughing 2016 in Screggan, Co Offaly was a tremendous success. A big thank you to all the Cattle exhibitors who put their animals on our stand. On the Milking side we had the Carter Family from Roscrea and Kenny Smyth from St Margarets, Co. Dublin. Our Pedigree Beef animals were provided by Pat Hehir from Inagh, Co. Clare and Tom Fox from Athlone. The 5 star Draw heifer Carrarock Sandy was bred by Padraic Chalke, Claremorris, Co. Mayo and was exhibited by Michael McKeon, Co. Sligo. The heifer was won this year by Anna Walsh, Mulhussey, Kilcock, Co. Meath. The Commercial animals on the stand were provided by Joe Higgins from Carrick on Shannon and Terry & Amelda Middleton from Moate. Also a big thank you to our ticket selling team each day, to everyone who made teas & coffees. To the people who wash, groom and feed the animals each day, your work does not go unnoticed. To the team who help put our stand up on the Saturday and dismantle it all again on the Thursday evening. The work load is really immense and we really appreciate everyone’s contribution. No one person could achieve this success but as a team working together we put on a really top class display and provided lots of information and promoted the breed from dawn until dusk each day. We hope that every breeder will reap the rewards in the coming months.
