The Pig Show!

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.

Entry requirements:

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.

Entry Fees

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.
