Emerald Expo 2022 - Showing is Back!

Championship ring at Expo 2019

Emerald Expo, an all-breeds dairy cattle show takes place on Saturday April 23rd in the Virginia Show centre, Co. Cavan. Breeders from all over Ireland are looking forward to exhibiting at the show which will be the first dairy show to take place in the Republic of Ireland since October 2019.

Emerald Expo is organised in conjunction with the Irish Holstein Friesian Association (IHFA) and the title sponsor is FBD Insurance.

This first in-person dairy show in over two years is welcome for the many IHFA breeders taking part. Expo has something for all showing enthusiasts with categories for judging across classes for Young Members (YMA) showmanship, youngstock classes, colour dairy breeds, an EBI Championship and Junior and Senior Holstein Friesian in-milk classes.

A generous prize fund in excess of €28,000 is on offer across the show day. To commemorate the 50th anniversary year of the local Breffni Oriel Holstein Friesian breeders club a special class confined to Cavan Monaghan Holstein Friesian breeders will also take place.

Emerald Expo is a farming family-friendly event and entry is free. All are welcome on the day. Judging begins with Showmanship classes at 10am.
