Closing Date for Entries
The closing date for entries has now been set at Monday 30th May 2016
£20,000 Prize Fund on Offer
A £20,000 prize fund will be on offer with prize monies going deep into the classes. The Supreme Champion in the pedigree and commercial sections will each receive a handsome cheque for £1000. There will also be significant cash prizes for the winners of the various ‘Specials’. The aim is also to give first prize winners £100 with cash prizes available all the way down to tenth. It is hoped that the prize monies will be rewarding but also act to encourage as many entries as possible.
Pedigree Sale to Follow the National Show
An exciting addition for 2016 is the inclusion of a small pedigree sale to follow on immediately after the show. Provisional thinking is that animals which have placed first to third in the respective classes will be offered the opportunity to be put forward for sale. This is why we have included the heading ‘Sale of Champions’ in the event logo!
Class Schedule & Entries
You will find the class schedule under the heading Shows & Events on the Society’s website. It was also included in the Winter 2015/2016 magazine. The schedule has been constructed to be as attractive and inclusive as possible with the emphasis placed on young stock, production and, across both the pedigrees and commercials, cattle that are commercially relevant to today’s market place. The closing date for entries is Monday 30th May 2016.
Pedigree & Commercial
The National Show is a celebration of the qualities of the Limousin breed and we are delighted to be able to include both classes and championships for pedigree and commercial Limousin cattle respectively. Please do spread the word and encourage as many people as possible to come and have a go!
Social Evening on Thursday 28th July
On the evening preceding the big day we have booked the Shepherd’s Inn, next to the Borderway Show hall, to host a pre-show dinner and get together. The evening will be relaxed and informal and will be open to exhibitors, members, guests and visitors. Look out for details of ticket prices and availability.
A special and unique event…don’t miss it!
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 much anticipated and high profile event that is sure to draw a big entry of cattle, along with a large crowd and significant media interest. With the National Show only being held once every five years it really is quite a special event and unique in beef terms in the numbers it is likely to attract. It’s definitely one not to be missed and we’d love to see you there with cattle, spectating, or both!
