A special Anniversary Sale for pedigree animals will be held on the Friday. The Anniversary Weekend will also be a great social occasion with the opportunity to look round some tremendous cattle at Whinfellpark on the Thursday and enjoy what is offer in terms stock judging, trade stands and farm tours as part of a much-anticipated Open Day courtesy of Messrs Jenkinson.  

An Exhibitor Dinner (Thursday) and Anniversary Supper (Friday) are planned for a separate marquee at Borderway which will include catering, bar and charity auction. All exhibitors benefit from a number of free tickets for the Exhibitor Dinner (Thursday) within their entry fee – see table below – further tickets can be pre-ordered.

With pedigree cattle penned by region, each Club will benefit from a free pen area to put up their own display stand – both these elements will form part of the Tidy Lines competition.

The Limousin breed continues to dominate and drive the British beef industry and as such the high-profile 50th Anniversary is sure to draw a large crowd and attract significant media interest.  So, take aim and get involved, it’s one not to be missed!
