T


his event, held at the Three Counties Showground, Malvern, is an annual competition for our youth to show the level of skills in agriculture they have achieved. The competition involves a major section of the industry including cattle; beef and dairy, pigs, sheep and also butchery and auctioneering. There were six sections to the competition: clipping and presentation, marketing and promotion, stock judging, ring craft, a skill-a- thon and interview. The marks gained from each section added together give the final score and position.


Representing ‘British Friesian


Youth’ were Jess Mills (clipping/ commentating), Andrea Vale (clipping /showing) and Kyle Ledger (calf presentation/ showing), with two calves, Gemini Solo Sky Pauline and


Gemini Patrol Rosie Red 2. The team worked well together and were a credit to the Club.


DAY ONE


The display stand and presentation had to be in place before each team member delivered a short personal introduction, along with information about the breed and a few of the British Friesian herds. Some nice photos of the team members and calves in action at various shows completed the presentation and gained them second place in this section of the competition. The stock judging then took place and the team did well here, scoring top marks.


DAY TWO


Throughout the day, various judges scrutinised every single phase from the stand


presentation to clipping and washing the calves and the BFY team worked well together, helping each other to turn out a grand team in the show ring. A tense wait followed until the placing announcement for all the classes was made. A very well done to our BFY team which came second. It was thoroughly well-deserved, and let’s hope this will set the standard for the future team in 2017.


The British Friesian Youth team of Jess Mills, Kyle Ledger and Andrea Vale finished second overall.
