National Hereford Show goes online
A virtual show will be held in place of the National Hereford Show, previously scheduled for Saturday 1 August.
Classes are open to any member of the National Hereford Club to exhibit cattle registered with the Hereford Cattle Society, within the horned section of the herd book.
The online spectacle will be judged by Robert Clarke of the Shadwell Estate (England), Brent and Anna Fisher of the Silverstream Hereford Stud (New Zealand) and Gary McKiernan of Corlismore Herefords (Republic of Ireland). Class results will be announced on 'show day' - Saturday 1 August.
Class winners will then be put forward to the female and male championships, which are kindly sponsored by Moocall and Manor Farm Feeds.
The public will be able to have their say by voting for their male and female champions. These votes will make up 25 per cent of the final outcome, while the three judges' placings will each contribute 25 per cent to the final result, which will be announced on Saturday 8 August.
Entries open: Friday 19 June
Entries close: 7pm on Monday 20 July
