National Open Day 2024 - Carrickshock Herd

Pat & Claire Cleary welcome us to Hugginstown, Co. Kilkenny

Drum roll please!!!

Make your plans and be ready for Thursday June 27th!

This year's Irish Pure Friesian National Open Day will be hosted by Pat & Claire Cleary and family at their Carrickshock Herd in Hugginstown, Co. Kilkenny. A popular and respected herd, Carrickshock has produced, most recently Carrickshock GTW in the Genus catalogue, but also a string of show winners, with Mabel becoming Iverk Show royalty in her later years!

The day will have a select group of relevant trade stands, a demo on Triple A analysis of cows, a talk on cow nutrition, refreshments for visitor nutrition, stock judging and a sale of quality young stock.

For a full run down of the herd, get your hands on the IHFA summer journal, and keep an eye on national press as profiles will appear over the coming days. In the meantime, feast your eyes on a few images of the quality stock,

And here's a video of Pat introducing us to his representatives at Iverk Show 2022.

We know it will be a great day, so we're looking forward to meeting as many club members and their families on the day!
