YMA class at Barryroe once again proves a popular feature
The Cork Limousin club hosted another successful YMA class at Barryroe show on Saturday 9th July. The first of our two annual YMA events, once again proved very popular among the club’s youngest members. This years event was made all the more appealing thanks to generous sponsorship provided by the Irish Limousin Cattle Society and Pedigreecattle.ie. A total of 8 youngsters paraded their cattle under the scrutiny of well known breeder and National YMA coordinator Michael Gunn. Coming out on top was Niamh O’Mahony from Ballygarvan, who exhibited her January born Ballygarvan Stud Gwen. In second place was Florence Wycherley leading a commercial son of the popular AI sire Brookmill Vindicator (VDT). All participants received the customary Champion rosette as well as an extendable show stick. Later that day Niamh O’Mahony proved her ability when she went on to win the open young handlers class. The club chairman Michael Pat Murphy commented that “the YMA exhibitors are the future lifeblood of Cork Limousin and it is our aim to propagate that interest. It is marvellous to see the youngsters gaining so much enjoyment from these events. The fun and comradory they glean from events such as this will stay with them forever.
