Co Down Company Joseph Walls Ltd are the main supporter of the prize heifer charity raffle being run by the NI Commercial Cattle Club in support of Belfast Hospital School.

This heifer was carefully sourced/selected by the NI Commercial Cattle Club based on having all the attributes of making a superior suckler dam. As a non-profit organisation, the club depend on the support of sponsors to run their annual events, notably the upcoming Summer Spectacular. This initiative was no different, and whilst the club covered the purchase of the prize heifer, the committee and members were overwhelmed with gratitude when Joseph Walls Ltd offered to supply all concentrate feed so that the heifer is in prime condition for raffle at the aforementioned Summer Spectacular.

The committee would like to personally thank Joseph and Christopher Walls of Joseph Walls Ltd for their support in this initiative.

Anyone looking information on this event or the charity heifer please get in contact with Robert on 07929759229 or Lizzy on 07919574811.
