2021 event:

According to organisers, a “bumper” entry of lambs, calves and prime cattle attracted “an influx of” potential buyers to the Eikon Exhibition Centre at Balmoral.

“There was a fantastic feel-good atmosphere throughout the day. Competition right across the board was fierce. The very finest of Northern Ireland’s livestock competed in no less than 60 classes, placed by a team of four judges.”
