Fine quality Ulster stock back areas local food drive

By Ann Rogers

LIVESTOCK classes at the Royal Ulster Agricultural Societys Balmoral Show were well supported with more than 2000 entries of pigs, sheep and cattle.

The quality of the stock forward was a good advertisment for local produce and supported the Ulster Farming Unions initiative promoting local food to local retailers and consumers.
