The Hereford society held its annual national championship at the AIB National Livestock Show in Tullamore. Hereford breeders from around the country made the trip for the event, resulting in the largest entry of Herefords to date for the exhibition, with over 140 cattle entered.

A number of familiar faces from well-known Hereford herds throughout the UK could be seen dotted around the ring and they were not disappointed with the quality of animals on show, which was to be expected seeing as the number of Herefords at various shows had been high throughout the country prior to the event.
