At yesterdays AGM of the SWGA the results of the annual competitions that had been judged on farm last Autumn by David Crouch were announced and the trophies were presented.
21 herds took part, some for the first time, and included herds in Cornwall, Devon, Gloucester, Isle of Wight, Somerset and Wiltshire. David Crouch commented on the quality of the cattle seen and in particular the young stock.
These competitions are decided by a combination of inspection points and production points plus points for regular calving. The young stock are judged seperately and the points are added for the overall prizes. The herds are split into 3 sections according to herd size.
