The Irish Texel Sheep Society, in association with the Irish Farmers Journal, has just launched an online competition aimed at young sheep farmers.

The competition will be broken up into two age categories – 16 and under, and 17 to 23 years.

The prizes for each group are vouchers to spend at the Irish Texel Premier Sale (vouchers are non-transferable and have to redeemed in person). The sale takes place on 10 and 11 August in Blessington, Co Wicklow, where there will be more than 300 sheep to choose from. First prize gets a €300 voucher, €200 for second and €100 for third.

The prize

The overall winner of the competition will win a double five-star pedigree Texel ewe on 9 June.

To enter the competition, entrants, who must be under the age of 23, just have to upload a short video to Facebook saying why they enjoy sheep farming and why they should win a pedigree Texel ewe.

When uploading, please tag Irish Texel Sheep Society and the Irish Farmers Journal.

Likes

Twenty per cent of the overall marks will be for the amount of likes each video gets, while the remaining 80% will be for the content. The top few will then be asked to attend the final, which will be held on 9 June in Cillin Hill at the National Sheep Breeders Association national championships.

Here, successful candidates will undergo a short interview.

Following the announcement of the winners, each section winner will be featured in the Irish Farmers Journal.

Check out the Irish Farmers Journal and Irish Texel Sheep Society Facebook pages for more information.
