H2 Charolais Championship final breeds success at Clogher Valley Show
LAUNCHED in April by the Northern Ireland Charolais Club, the H2 Engineering Charolais Championship (NI) has become one of the most prestigious beef breed competitions, across a range of six qualifying classes at eight shows, for young male and female Charolais cattle.
Charolais cattle awarded first and second place within the chosen age groups of males and females, and exhibited at provincial shows, are automatically selected as qualifiers for the H2 Engineering Charolais Grand Final at Clogher Valley Show, which took place on Wednesday last.
Spectators and visitors from across the province and much further afield had the opportunity to view a wonderful line-up of the excellent quality Charolais cattle.
The championship is firmly established, and for a number of years now has created great interest with visitors from across Europe marvelling at the quality stock on show at this Northern Ireland final.
As sponsors of the prestigious competition, H2 Engineering have been able to interact with their ever growing agricultural customer base through their attendance at the Clogher Valley Show.
Established as a major supplier of agricultural supplies - including steel cladding, purlins, flashings and fixings - the company also offer an excellent range of steel sectional sheds, portal frames & modular buildings.
Over the past two months the Charolais club has enjoyed excellent press coverage since the spring launch of both the Northern Ireland National Show and H2 Engineering Charolais Championship (NI), as well as hosting the Charolais Congress tour, and the organisers are indebted to the press for their superb coverage of all the events this year.
The Charolais Club are delighted that the Championship has attracted such a well-established family engineering company as H2 Engineering in Dungannon, a local firm with a fast growing customer base.
H2 Engineering have plants in Dungannon, Coalisland, Cork and Galway, and an extensive agent base covering all of the UK and their performance proves that engineering companies in Northern Ireland can hold their own with similar establishments across Europe.
The organisers of the championship would like to pay special thanks to the H2 staff for attending local shows, investing in trade space and assisting with the qualifiers at each show.
The Championship received a high profile at the Launch of Clogher Valley Show recently when it was quoted as one of their leading beef cattle competitions in 2012.
