2012 Young Stock Person Competitions
During the summer of 2012 specific Beltie young handler classes were held once again at Ayr County, Straiton, and Stranraer Shows. We have also continued giving rosettes to the best Beltie young handler entering in general beef young handler classes at Dumfries, Stewartry and Wigtown Shows. There is a point system in place for the summer show season and the young exhibitor gaining the most points over the season will receive a trophy to keep for a year.
Exhibitors this year included Hamish Bell, Flora Foreman, Ellis Frame-Kinloch, Katie Landers, Ian McKnight, Illise Spice and Claire Taylor. Everyone did well. Katie accumulated the most points over the year and won the Belted Galloway Young Handler Trophy in 2012. Well done also to Ian McNight (2nd) and Hamish Bell (3rd).
Please encourage your children, grandchildren, friend’s children etc to participate. The cattle shown don’t need to be their own, sometimes another exhibitor has a quiet animal that they are willing to lend for a class, please ask for more info. Remember cattle shows are a good shop front for our breed and youngsters are the future.
