The commercial cattle competitions have long been a favourite attraction, for both spectators and competitors at Tullamore Show. This year is no different with record entries amounting to 330. The 330 entries will be competing across 28 classes including 12 calf classes and 12 senior classes. The massive number of classes share a prize fund of over €20,000 for commercial cattle.

In 2017, the show committee have made more improvements in the commercial section, with a relocation of the commercial rings alongside the pedigree rings.
