JUDGING SCHOOL
2009 JUDGING
SCHOOL
With the weather being kind for a day, the 2009 Judging School for the Regional
Panel and nominations from the Clubs attended Mr and Mrs Richard Pilkington’s
famous Aintree Herd.
Nominations from all the Clubs are invited on a one per 50 members basis and it was
great to see lots of new faces attending.
The day started with a demonstration of reason giving, judging procedure, ring
etiquette and stewarding. The man explaining this was Mr Ashley Fleming from the
Potterswall Herd in Northern Ireland. Ashley has judged many shows all over the ABOVE Harri Evans was
world, both Holsteins and Jersey and his demonstration was a highlight of the day.
one of four Master judges.
Four classes of six animals were split into Junior and Senior in Milk Heifers, Junior
Cow in Milk and Senior Cows.
The attendees were split into two teams before judging began. The classes are each
judged by two master judges and this year, Ken Proctor and Harri Evans judged two
classes with Tom Phillips and John Lawson presiding over the other two.
Reason giving consists of 25% of the points and these were judged by the same
master judges. Every one of the 91 judges gave reasons with the best being of the
highest standard.
With the results now being sent to all the competitors it was very rewarding for our
junior judging competition to see the winners from a few years ago coming out on top
at the School.
Those newcomers attending will be invited back again in 2011 and, depending on
results of two schools, will be put on the Judges List. Members already on the Judges
List which attain the top twenty placings will go to the 2010 Judging Conference at
which, depending on results will go onto the Judges Panel.
Last word must go to Richard Pilkington and his team of helpers at Aintree for giving
us some fantastic cattle, a great welcome to all and a fi rst class venue. Given the
opportunity we will certainly go back again in the future.
ABOVE Richard Pilkington,
hosted the event.
