2010 Young Stock Person Competitions
The young handler classes continued on successfully during the summer of 2010. Once again special classes were held at Ayr County Show, Straiton Show and Stranraer Show. In addition 2 impromptu classes were held at Dumfries and Wigtown Shows. Rosettes were also given at Stewartry Show in the general Beef Young Handler class. It was encouraging to see the judges participating with enthusiasm, encouraging the youngsters. In particular the handlers were given a new challenge when after the normal judging at Dumfries Show Robert Graham suggested they swop cattle to see how they handled other peoples stock. The cattle were selected with safety in mind and it all went very well and added to the interest.
Exhibitors this year included, Lucy Bartie, Judith Cowie, Katie Landers, Bobby Landers, Sain Milvern, Ian McKnight, Cameron Rogers and Claire Taylor. Everyone did very well, in particular Judith Cowie who won her class at 5 different shows. We are looking for new exhibitors for future years, some of the above are aging fast! Thank you everyone again for entering, encouraging and judging.
