Dairy champion Melplash Show 2013

This event has kindly been arranged by Frank Greenaway and will take place at Wooth Farm, Wooth, near Bridport (DT6 5LE) on Thursday 10th July starting at 7pm.  Experienced cattle judges, Terry Cox of Holmead Holsteins and John Westaway, former Holstein Classifier, are holding a workshop to demonstrate how to clip and prepare dairy animals for show and sale, together with tips on dairy stock judging.

This will be an informal evening with the chance to have a go at clipping cows for show, and a chance to learn how to judge and give reasons in stock judging competitions.  Refreshments will be available.

A similar evening will take place in early August (date to be arranged) for sheep preparation and judging by Francis Fooks renowned breeder and judge of Dorset Sheep.

If you are interested in either of the above you should book a place via the Melplash Show Office 01308 423337 or email office@www.melplashshow.co.uk
