We made a commitment to the Bonniconlon Show that we would put on Dexter Cattle Classes in 2018.  They have offered to sponsor 1 Dexter Cattle class but we need to put on 3 classes so we have to find Sponsorship for 2 classes.  Most importantly we need to Halter Train our Dexters in order to show them.

We need to start with calf classes for the first year and then we will have a yearling class the following year and a cow class in year 3.  We should aim to have Classes at Bonniconlon, Royal Meath Show in Trim, Tullamore & Iverk in Pilltown Shows and have exhibits at other shows.  



Many shows have requested to have Dexters & other Rare Breeds at their shows.  Showing is a great way to promote our breed. We should take a leaf out of the other Cattle Breeds book, in introducing the public to our long lost native breed.
