Stock Judging, Stockman of the year and Shearing Competition

Kindly sponsored by Berrys

On Sunday it was another busy day for the Competitions Committee with a slightly more traditional competition. The day started off with Shropshire Show Stockjudging which warmed the competitors up for the much-anticipated Stockman of the Year!

Competitors headed to south Shropshire where the rain just about held off all day. A sea of white coats flooded the yard at 12.30pm for our 2018 Stockman of the Year competition. It was great to see some new faces competing in both the senior and junior categories. This year the competition was very competitive with only a few points separating those at the top of the scoreboard. The competitors had to complete a questionnaire and judge four categories which were Dairy, Ewes, Lambs and Beef cattle. Thanks to the judges for their thorough adjudication and valuable feedback that the provided the competitors. Results for both categories of the competition can be found below.
