37th National Dairy Show
Saturday 19th October 2019
Green Glens Arena – Millstreet – Co. Cork
The 37th National Dairy Show to take place in Green Glens Arena, Millstreet on Saturday 19th October
As autumn beckons thoughts turn to the last agricultural show of the year, the National Dairy Show, which takes place on Saturday 19th October in the Green Glens Arena, Millstreet.
The fun, family, farming day out offers something for everyone and has steadily grown into Ireland’s premier indoor agricultural event. The Show always offers a wide range of attractions and this year is no different with an extended Trade Stand area with over 150 trade exhibits, marketing agricultural based products and equipment.
A new addition to the Show this year are the informative, bite-size seminars from leading companies in the agricultural industry offering further advice and insight to help farmers in their day to day business, so make sure you don’t miss the opportunity to meet and discuss with suppliers of a wide range of products from the latest in milking technology to animal nutrition, veterinary products, detergents, animal dosing, AI companies and leading financial institutions to name but a few.
The National Dairy Show has been designed to attract an audience throughout the farming community and on the day live demonstrations will promote the latest in hoof care restraining equipment as well as up to date hoof pairing technology. Tractor and loader demos and bale slicing demos will also feature with up to eight manufacturers participating alongside a wide range of machinery on display; surely not to be missed!
Farm safety will also be included, particularly in relation to prevention of farm accidents, which is always close to our hearts and Gardai will also be on hand to discuss rural crime prevention.
The Show always brings something different to the event and this year introduces a sheepdog and ducks demonstration as well as bespoke seminars from the experts and not forgetting tempting food tastings and light bites from local producers as well as full restaurant facilities within the complex.
Cattle handling competitions showcasing young handlers from throughout Ireland always add an air of excitement to the day as the audience in Millstreet has the opportunity to see the cream of Holstein Friesian and Jersey cattle before the Irish Examiner Supreme Champion is crowned to the waiting crowds later that afternoon. This year the Show are delighted to welcome Swiss judge, Erhard Junker, who will officiate at the event as he brings a wealth of experience from Shows across Europe.
House for rent in Millstreet.
