The Ballymena Show got underway on Saturday 15th June.  In contrast to our previous show the weather did not play ball and conditions were wet and overcast.  That did not deter the 7 local breeders who put forward 11 animals to contest 4 classes.  Our judge on the day was  Ronan Delany, who runs a herd of Belted Galloways with his family in Gaulstown, Dunshaughlin, Co.Meath
