Dairy events and cattle farming shows throughout the UK
Following three wonderful days of excitement, prize-winning animals and family fun at the 2009 Show, plans are underway for yet another huge event in 2013! An enormous crowd of 62,000 people passed through the gates of dairy events in May 2015 to enjoy the wide variety of entertainment, witness parades of livestock and do a spot of shopping at the many trade stands on offer. 2016 is set to surpass this with even more top attractions (both in the Main Arena and the Showground's), top International Show Jumping, family entertainment, Sheep Shearing and live bands.
Supplying Events With Fresh Produce
We work with many venue hire suppliers that like to provide their guests with some of the highest quality goods. We supply parties, weddings and other events with fresh dairy products to serve to the guests at their event.
Of course you will also have the opportunity to view the cream of Northern Ireland livestock competing for the prestigious prizes in the rings, which will have travelled from all over Ireland to take part. There will be a host of fun things for children to see and do, including playing with baby animals in the Children's Farm and having their faces painted.
This website will be regularly updated throughout the year as events and attractions are confirmed. The Show will be open Wednesday 12th - Friday 14th May 2016 from 9.30am - 8.00pm daily - so come along and join the fun!
