Irish Moiled Cattle Society Photographic Competition 2014
This year’s competition saw over 100 entries across 9 classes from members in all three of our constituencies – Republic of Ireland, Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Judge Tommy Jackson, Saintfield, had quite a task in choosing the top 4 in each class with a very high standard of both animals and photographs. Tommy announced the winners at our recent AGM on 6th October in Clandeboye Estate. Congratulations to Stewart Donaldson, Ark Open Farm, Newtownards on attaining Champion with Aughnakealie May and to Sam Smiley, Ballynahinch for attaining Reserve Champion with Glassdrummond Cherry 44.
The society would like to thank Tommy for judging our competition this year and congratulate all those who entered the competition. Full details of results are as follows;
