This one-day event organised by the Royal Ulster Agricultural Society (RUAS) is a firm favourite in the agricultural calendar having established itself as the meeting place for the dairy industry throughout Ireland.
Visitors to the Winter Fair will be able to watch top quality livestock compete for championship titles including the prestigious title of Supreme Interbreed Champion of the Show.
The RUAS is delighted to welcome Canadian livestock judge Pierre Boulet and Andrew Short from Omagh to judge the Dairy Stall & Trade Stand Awards. Over two hundred trade stands will be showcasing the latest technologies and innovations throughout the day.
