The annual show and sale will take place at Elphin Mart, Co. Roscommon tomorrow - find more information here.

101 bulls are catalogued for this year's Irish Charolais Society Christmas Cracker Show and Sale.

The annual event will take place at Elphin Mart, Co. Roscommon on Saturday, December 1st; the show will take place at 10 am, followed by the sale at 12:30pm.

Speaking to That's Farming, Nevan McKiernan - Secretary of Irish Charolais Cattle Society said:

"The Christmas Cracker is the number one Charolais Bull sale in Ireland in terms of quality. Many of the bulls have been prize-winners at Summer shows all year, including Champions from our National Show back in August."

"These bulls have since come through a rigorous inspection, to ensure a high standard of quality on the day. There will be a range of different bloodlines on offer, with the majority of bulls qualifying for the BDGP."

All bulls have been pre-inspected; vet-inspected and DNA-sire verified; entries are eligible for export on the day; fertility-tested and fertility-insured, according to the society.

Free transport is available to a UK main-land venue and €100 paid towards transport costs to Northern Ireland, the society added.
