Saturday

Hi all What a rainy day but when it came to the Young Handlers' classes the sun came out and started to dry up the puddles. The Young Handler classes are very important to any show as they encourage the younger generation to try out showing sheep, cattle and pigs. There were over 35 children entering the sheep young handlers ranging from 5 to 21 years old. There were so many entries in one class we had to spilt the first class into two. The Judge was very interested in all the exhibits and questioned each on their sheep. The champion young handler went to a girl from the 17 - 21 years of age class. As well as some prize money and vouchers she won a jacket with 'Champion Young Handler' embroidered on it. Well Done. In the main sheep classes, the Supreme Sheep Championship went to a Beltex from Messrs S & S Gibbons. The Supreme Cattle Championship went to Oakchurch Diplomat an Aberdeen Angus from J & A Price. The Herefords won the Supreme pairs. Sunday is rare breeds day with record entries in all departments, lets hope for some sunshine. If you have any comments or would like a livestock report please email me on hanleysuffolks@gmail.com. Jack
