The Commercial Cattle Exhibitors Society Ltd, Winter Fair Schedule Launch will take place on the 28th of August at 8.30pm in the Bridge House Hotel, Tullamore, Co Offaly.

The Winter Fair has been ongoing now for almost 20 years mainly due to the hard work and dedication of its members. However we wouldn’t be where we are if not for the kindness of our many sponsors and by you the public who come and support it every year and this year is no exception.

This year the Winter Fair will take place on the 11th & 12th of October at Roscommon Mart in the heart of the midlands. The Winter Fair is a very important event in the Irish Farming year and the launch will be a night not to be missed. Last year’s event proved to be the biggest yet and currently the ball is in motion to build on last year’s success.

A number of guest speakers as well as representatives from the different Breed Societies will be in attendance on the evening. It is a unique opportunity to come and inform yourself on the most up-to-date changes that are happening in the beef sector.

In conjunction with the 2015 Schedule launch the society will also launch their newly designed, interactive and mobile friendly website. Allowing you download this year’s winter fair schedule and entry form in a matter of moments.

We invite you to join us at our launch evening on and look forward to your attendance at the 2015 National Winter Fair spectacular for real cattle enthusiasts
