The first Pig Show was a great success. Many thanks to all who supported it. Especially our hosts Tom and Gesa Cosby, Special guests Ella McSweeny and Ed Hick, and the many people who traveled from far and wide to support it. A full show report is on the way but here are a few photos of the event.
Here are some details on classes and ticket prices for the Pig show. We had a good site visit there last week and it is going to be a great venue.
Pig Classes for the Irish Pig Society Show
Minimum entry of 5 pigs per class is required to run the class or classes will be combined with another class – notification will be given as soon as information regarding each class is available.
Proof of ownership of animal
Proof and supporting documentation of Registered Herd Number – Z prefix.
Payment before class/ show – no payment no entry
Whites Coloured and Hybrids will be judged separately in the following classes
Sow of any age, Gilt – born after 1/9/2013, Boar – born after 1/9/2013, Best white/coloured/hybrid Pig in Show
There will be an overall prize for the best pig in show and the best young handler.
Whilst the Irish Pig Society Ltd would like to make this event as available for as many as possible to attend by making it as cost friendly as we can – however we have significant overheads from the show.
Therefore minimum fees are required from entrants and exhibitors.
€5.00 per pen to cover disinfectants and bedding. Please see ‘Requirements’ page for items you will need to bring for the show. We recommend no more than 2 pigs per pen.
We look forward to meeting you and your pigs on the day – the Committee.
11th May in Stradbally Hall. I cannot find any information about when the last pig show was in Ireland does anyone have an idea? More information to follow shortly…
