NORTHERN IRELAND LIMOUSIN CARCASE COMPETITION
Entries close Fri 1st March 3pm
A reminder that entries close on 1st March for the NI Club Limousin Carcase Competition to be held at Linden Foods, Dungannon on Tuesday 5th March 2013.
Each class will have a first, second and third prize consisting of £200, £100 and £50 respectively. As a special incentive to support the competition, and to illustrate the importance of producing carcases that meet supermarket specifications, Linden Foods will pay an additional 6p per kilo on all suitable Limousin cattle that are entered for the competition and fall within the above weight limits on the day.
The competition will be open to all Limousin-bred cattle and judging will take place across six classes. There will be two classes for young commercial Limousin crossbred animals, with a class each for steers and heifers. The animals in these classes must be under 30 months and fall within the weight range of 260 to 380 kilos, and be farm quality assured. There will be a further two classes for cows: one for purebred registered cows and one for Limousin crossbred cows.
Please note, any interested parties MUST book their animals into the Carcase Competition before closing 3.00pm Friday 1st March 2013 by phoning one of Linden Foods’ livestock buyers – either Brian Lynn (07831-296834) or David Lyons (07850-341977).
