Irish Moiled Cattle Society’s 2017 photographic competition

The Irish Moiled Cattle Society’s annual photographic competition once again attracted a large number of excellent entries from its members in all three constituencies – Great Britain, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

Richard McConnell from Glenwherry – past chairman and well-known judge – had the difficult task of selecting his prize winning animals from the photos entered in the nine classes.

Novelty/Scenic Class winner was won by Bill Paddon with the caption "What Are You Humans Up to Now"

The first prize winners in each of the classes then went to a public vote on the Irish Moiled Cattle Society Facebook page.

It was the junior heifer and junior cow winners that took the top two spots.
