Stockman's Workshop Day - Moira Pedigree Sales Arena - 14th April 2012
11am - 4pm
The Rare Breed Survival Trust NI are holding a pre-show season Stockman's Workshop to be held at Moira Pedigree Sales Arena on Saturday 14th April 2012 from 11am.
The event is being organised with a view to helping and encouraging young and old alike, in the ways of preparing and showing their livestock.
Representation will be in cattle, sheeps, pigs and poultry of all breeds. On hand will be experienced stockmen demonstrating washing, clipping and grooming techniques. Master judges will give advice on the selection process of show animals. Handling techniques, ring craft and dress code will also be covered.
Everyone is welcome to try their hand at showing, with interaction and sharing skills to the fore. Irish Moiled's will be there with an example of an animal and a speaker appointed to advise on how to best prepare and show the breed.
If you have ever wanted to show your animals but did not know how to go about it this event is a good place to start! The workshop is free and open to all ages....A great family day out!
