The North Country Cheviot  N.I Club held their 3rd Annual Show & Sale on Friday 27th August 2021, this year at a new venue - Beattie's Livestock Centre in Omagh, the evnet was kindly sponsored by Provita Animal Health.

A tremendous entry of over 300 North Country Cheviots & 140 Cheviot first crosses, clearly shows the increasing popularity for the breed in recent years, with demand for use both breeding pure & commercially as many realise the benefits of the Northie as a terminal & materal option.
