The Northern Ireland Simmental Cattle Breeders’ Club is inviting entries of cross-bred females for its forthcoming show and sale at Ballymena Mart.The evening event, sponsored by Connon General Merchant, takes place on Wednesday, May 8.

Club chairman Conrad Fegan said: The Simmental is noted for its dual purpose characteristics, producing milky, fertile cows with great temperament and natural mothering ability; while its terminal genetics produce excellent growth rates and superior carcases. There is a strong demand for cross-bred females, and we are seeking entries of commercial maiden and in-calf heifers, in-calf cows and cows with calf at foot.
