Rules and Guidelines for exhibitors entering the Irish Moiled International Online Cattle Show
– For each animal entered, it is preferred that 3 photos and a short video are all submitted to show off the animal. The photos ideally should consist of a front view, a rear view, and a side view. The video should be approximately 20 – 30 seconds showing the animal walking.
-For promotion of the breed and judging of the animal’s good quality photos and animals well-presented are encouraged.
-Photos and videos submitted for each entry should have been taken after the 1st Jan 2020.
-Exhibitors are limited to no more than 2 entries per class.
-Animals should only be entered in 1 section, in its appropriate class. The same animal should not be entered in the haltered section and the non-haltered section.
-Animals entered in the show should be pedigree, registered in the Irish Moiled Cattle Society Herd Book. In the calf classes, the entrants should be at least birth notified. In the half-bred classes, either the mother or the father (but not both) of the animal should be a pedigree registered Irish Moiled animal.
-Classes will be amalgamated by the organisers and/or the judge if there are insufficient entries in a class.
-The judge’s decision of class placings will be final.
-In the Young Handlers classes, 2 photos and a short 20 – 30 second video is preferred. One photograph should be a side view with the animal stood up to be inspected by a judge (handler to be included in the photo) , the other photo should be a front view of you walking the animal towards the judge. The video should be of you walking the animal away from the camera, turn and walk back towards the camera, stopping so that the camera is getting a side view of the animal and then standing your animal up for the judge.
-When entries are uploaded online it will be assumed that the entrant is giving permission for their videos/photos and details be used in show reports and all publications. Photos and videos used may be requested to be sent direct to the Society.
