For the 2022 Mountbellew Agricultural Show, the sheep section will have seven breeds involved including Suffolk, Texel, Beltex, Charollais, Vendeen, Zwartbles and Galway.
For anyone who would like to enter a breed other than these classes 119 & 120 are a purebred Ram/Ewe of any breed not listed in the schedule.
Sheep entries are strong again this year when the climax will be The All-Ireland Pair of Galway Ewe Lambs. Class 118 is confined to a pair of ewe lambs, which are judged as a pair. This class is open to pedigree and non-pedigree flocks. The champion pair will receive €75 and a product voucher.
Commercial classes are 121 to 126 where there are always a high number of entries in factory and butchers lamb along with the four crossbred ewe classes.
Our junior classes are classes 127 & 128. The young handlers competition encourages under 17s to participate in our show and class 128 will get the under 8’s feeding a pet lamb from a bottle.
