Judge’s report

BSH-D-Dickie_edited-1.jpg

Rosemary and I spent four days at the end of August/beginning of September crossing the south of England, from Faversham in Kent to Bristol, judging the Southern Club’s Herds competition. It is always a pleasure to meet people on their own farms and see how cattle adapt to different systems, but even more so this year after such a long drought. We were able to witness the adaptability of the Beef Shorthorn breed to survive and prosper in these conditions. While on most farms the grass had returned, there were one or two areas where it had not. We would like to thank all the entrants for their hospitality on their farms – and especially those who hosted us overnight, it was most appreciated. We would like to wish the club all the best for the future.

David Dickie
