Have you exceptional pedigree registered cull cows or young bulls of the Charolais breed ready for slaughter? Then, this competition may be for you!

The Irish Charolais Cattle Society has joined forces with Dawn Meats to run a major Carcass Competition for pedigree registered Charolais cattle.

Charolais cull cows and pedigree registered Charolais bulls under 16 months of age are eligible for the competition, which will run from the week beginning the 19th of February 2018. The stock will be slaughtered in the Rathdowney and Ballyhaunis branches of Dawn Meats.

Dawn Meats will pay 8c/kg on top of the national average base price for the previous week, according to Irish Charolais Cattle Society.

All stock must have a fat score of 2+ or more, must be Quality Assured, and a copy of the Pedigree Certificate must accompany the animal’s passport to qualify for the 8c/kg bonus.

Prize Money

The Irish Charolais Cattle Society will pay prize money as follows to the owners of the winning Carcasses in each section; Bulls first-prize €250; second-prize €200, third-prize €150 and fourth-prize €100. For cows, first-prize €250; second-prize €200; third-prize €150 and fourth-prize; €100.

Stock will be judged on what Carcasses best meet market requirements and the winning carcasses will be selected from entries in both factories.

To book stock, contact Dawn Meats Ballyhaunis on 094-9632400 or Meadow Meats Rathdowney on 050546288.
