16 October 2018

Year in, year out, hundreds of youngsters take part in our Youth Development Programme workshops, not only for enjoyment, but many of them also have the aim of reaching the grand finale and competing against their peers in a number of different sections. With three different age groups including juniors, intermediates and seniors, participants took part in stockjudging, cattle dressing and ringcraft, with the intermediates and seniors partaking in a presentation and panel interview respectively. The event was brilliant and we must congratulate all who took part so excellently, with very high standards across the board. With news on the horizon from all the prize winners and their reaction, we first of all wanted to share the full list of results and some of the great photography from the event that took place over the weekend.
