With Balmoral Show just around the corner, cattle showmen and show women all over the province are busy preparing their stock and none more so than the Blonde breeders.
The Blonde National Show is being held at Balmoral Show for the first time - and what a spectacle it promises to be!
Record numbers of Blonde cattle are entered for the three day event. Running from 13th-15th May, it is shaping up to be a real showstopper.
Already several groups of overseas visitors have booked to come and watch the splendid sight of the Blonde breed classes, with French breeders meeting up with others from Wales, England, Scotland and the Republic of Ireland.
There will also be a warm welcome for some Australian visitors who are making the long journey for the three-day event.
The Northern Ireland Blonde Cattle Club is pulling out all the stops to make this an occasion to remember. So anyone going to Balmoral Show, be sure to visit the breed stand for a chat and a friendly welcome.
Good luck to everyone showing their stock.
