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.
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.
Overall champion went to Curraghnakeely Daisy 0416, junior heifer winner and reserve champion went to Curraghnakeely Tansy 1st, junior cow winner, both photographs were entered by N and M Moilies (Nigel Edwards and Michelle McCauley).
