The Ulster American Folk Park will welcome two legged and four legged visitors on Saturday 29th, Sunday 30th April and Monday 1st May for its much-anticipated Rare Breeds Show.
Liam Corry, Assistant Curator at the Ulster American Folk Park, said it will be a fun-packed day with a backdrop of rich livestock history.
“Our visitors always look forward to the Rare Breeds Show. Not only are there some beautiful and fascinating animals, there’s also a great lesson in history, and the role these wonderful breeds have had in Ulster’s agricultural and domestic history.”
Liam added: “It is also a wonderful opportunity for us to recognise the organisations and individuals keeping these rare breeds going and keeping their stories alive.”
The Rare Breeds Survival Trust and Sperrin’s & Lakeland Support Group will be on hand to answer any questions.
Visitors can encounter a variety of interesting animals and prize breeds including Dexter cattle, Kerry Hill sheep, and Gloucestershire Old Spot pigs.
