The British Limousin Cattle Society is delighted to confirm that a National Limousin Show will take place in the show hall at Borderway Mart, Carlisle on Friday 29th July 2016.
Celebrating 45 years of the Limousin breed in the UK, the show will follow a similar format to previous with simultaneous judging of pedigree and commercial classes. The judges are now in place and Bruce Goldie of the noted Goldies Herd, Townfoot, Mouswald, Dumfries will be the man in the middle for the pedigree classes and Championships whilst Frank Page, Lodge Farm, Elkington, Northampton, this year’s East of England Smithfield Champion, will be the judge for the commercial classes and Championships.
Click on the link below to see a provisional class schedule which also confirms that an overall prize fund of around £20,000 will be on offer with prize monies going deep into the classes. One or two additions that we are looking at this year are the inclusion of a small pedigree sale to follow on immediately after the show. Look out for full details of that in due course!
On the Thursday evening (28th) there will be a meal and social event for members, exhibitors, sponsors, and attendees.
The 2016 National Limousin Show will, we fully anticipate, once again be a spectacular showcase for the breed that will attract the very best of Limousin genetics from around the UK.
The Limousin breed continues to dominate and drive the British beef industry and as such this will be a high profile event that is sure to draw a large crowd and significant media interest. A full break down and profile of the National Show will be included in the Jan/Feb 2016 edition of the Limousin magazine. From this point, there will be continual updates through Facebook, social media, websites, and mailings of further details around the 2016 National Limousin Show. So take aim and get involved, it’s one not to be missed!!
Closing date for entries is Friday 13th May 2016. Please note entry forms will be posted out, and made available on-line, in late January/early February 2016.
