We wish to express our sincere gratitude to Minister Heather Humphries and the Department of Rural and Community Development for the funding package that they have made available through the Irish Shows Association for agricultural shows. This funding will be an important lifeline for us and for many shows around the country. Thank You!

Carbery Show Society wishes to acknowledge the generous insurance rebate, made possible through The Department of Agriculture and the Irish Shows Association. Without this grant aid, many country shows would not be viable.

Keepers wishing to show cattle in 2023 must obtain a Certificate of Compliance prior to the movement of the animal to the Show.  This ensures that the animal (s) in question has the necessary TB, BR and BVD tests recorded on the Department’s database and that the keeper presenting the animal is not restricted by the Department.  Certificates of Compliance can be obtained online from the Animal identification and Movement (AIM) system through the www.agfood.ie facility or from the Cattle Movement Notification Agency.  When applying for a Certificate of Compliance, keepers should not specify a destination herd.

On the day of the Show, the Certificate of Compliance should be presented to the Show Secretary along with the bovine passport for the animal.

The keeper and the Show Secretary will then sign the Movement Notification section of the Certificate which will then be sent to the local DVO for recording onto the AIM system.

Please note that only cattle for which a valid Certificate of Compliance is provided to the Show Secretary can be shown on the day of the Show.
