The Galloway Cattle Club of Ireland and the Belted Galloway Cattle Club of Ireland are delighted to be co-hosting the 1st Irish Premier Show and Sale of Galloway Cattle at Ballymena Livestock Mart on Friday 6th September.

This event promises to showcase the calibre of our locally produced Galloway cattle. With some of the top breeders and bloodlines in NI already putting forward cattle, this promises to be a great opportunity to market top quality pedigree Galloway cattle.

There will be five show classes for pedigree registered cattle per club to include:


  1. Cow in calf or with calf at foot born on or before 31/08/2021
  2. Heifer born on or after 01/09/2021 and on or before 31/08/2022
  3. Heifer born on or after 01/09/2022 and on or before 31/08/2023
  4. Bull or Heifer born on or after 01/09/2023
  5. Bull born on or before 31/08/2023

Helen Ryman of the North Kildarroch Herd – Newton Stewart, Dumfries & Galloway, has kindly agreed to be the judge on the day.

There will be 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes per class, a championship cup and reserve prize for each breed.

In addition to pedigree cattle, we welcome non-registered Galloways and beef bred Galloway crossbreds to the sale.

Both clubs are calling on all breeders to get involved in the sale by entering a few animals.
