We had a very long but enjoyable trip Co Laois last weekend to bc attend the Irish National Poultry Show held at Ossorry Agricultural Showgrounds.
This would be our last show before getting the birds penned up for the new breeding season. We had 30 entries in total and had 27 exhibits placed first to third which was encouraging.
We managed to retain our ‘Best Maran’ award following our success in 2019 and were also awarded ‘Best Barnevelder’ and ‘Champion Trio’ for our Buff Orpingtons which was particularly pleasing given the very high standard of exhibits in the trio classes.
Well done to the ISPF show committee on a well run event and to all the winners on the day. Thanks also to the judges who travelled from Great Britain to assess the exhibits.
Finally a special mention to Glenn Pearson for his assistance in penning all my entries. It was greatly appreciated.
