The All Ireland Derby Competition is a cross border initiative between the Irish Limousin Cattle Society and the Northern Ireland Limousin Club. This competition which previously was specifically for young bulls and heifers that were exhibitor bred is now been revamped.

The Derby which has always been a major spectacle with a large audience and a large entry of animals. Indeed some of the All Ireland Derby prize winners have subsequently gone on to sell at notable prices.

Over the years many winners in the Derby have gone on to excel at both shows and sales and achieved exceptional prices.

Following a review of the Derbies format by the respective organisations it has been decided to change the format of the competition for 2012. Unlike previous years there will be no qualifiers and instead entries will be straight to the final. The final will be hosted by Elphin Show in Co. Roscommon on Saturday 1st September.

It was also decided to split each category into two classes with a Championship for each category.

Like previous years it would be impossible to stage this competition without the generous contribution of our sponsors. Long standing sponsors Teemore Engineering, Derrylin have been joined by Connaught Gold, Trouw Nutrition International, DSM, Alltech, Natural Nutrition ( Michael Gibbons ) and Elphin Show.
