HCBA Christmas Calf Show Sat 9th Dec 2023

The HCBA are delighted to host the HCBA Christmas Calf Show on Saturday 9th December 2023, at Halls Shrewsbury Livestock Centre. Master Judge for this year’s calf show is William McMordie from the highly esteemed Solpoll Herd from Northern Ireland.

HCBA are excited to support a new event for the Friday evening this year kindly hosted by Designer Genes.

Below is some information from DGS.

“DGS Goes Global Sale Volume III

Returning to the Designer Genes event in 2023 is the DGS Goes Global Sale which will take place on Friday 8th December 2023 at Shrewsbury Livestock Centre.

The event includes the return of the popular Friday night offering of frozen genetics from the world’s best Hereford operations, including semen, embryos, flushes, donor prospects and pick lots. The herd sire prospects and females will sell in the Designer Genes Sale on Saturday 9th December at 2pm. Online bidding is available for both sales.

The Friday evening event consists of a drinks bar, food options and live music, commencing at 6:30pm. This will then be followed by DGS Goes Global Sale which will begin at 8pm. The sale will likely take place in the main foyer of the auction mart.

The DGS team are still consigning lots to both the Friday and Saturday sales with entries closing at the end of September. Please contact Josh if you’d like to consign on 07447 412123.”

Please note, hospitality for the Friday evening is no longer being ran by the HCBA and will now be provided by Designers Genes in the form of an open drinks bar, free meal and live music.  

HCBA very much hope all exhibitors will support and attend this event.

The HCBA are once again looking forward to putting on the Christmas Calf Show and are hoping for a high level of quality entries from HCS Members for the last show of the year!
