This year, on the beef side, the Irish Shorthorn Society will focus on high replacement index animals for the suckler beef herd. The stand will have a selection of high-index pedigree animals from the show circuit, along with a selection of commercial crosses on display.

On the milking side, the society will focus on having a selection of high-yielding milking Shorthorn cows with power and fertility – cows that last. Copies of the recently launched milking journal will also be available at the stand.
