The team of Finlay Soutter, Isla Soutter and Ellis Parry won the overall national stockjudging competition at the Royal Three Counties Show, representing UK Hereford Youth.
They beat 15 other teams from around the country of all ages and so the future bodes well for these three young members.
Having travelled from County Tyrone in Northern Ireland that morning, Des Kelly attended the show as master judge to which the Society are very grateful.
In the individual categories, Finaly Soutter, Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire took home the cup for the best under 26, while Dave Makin of Adzor Herefords, Wellington, Herefordshire won the trophy for the highest individual score.
Congratulations to all competitors and many thanks to exhibitors who provided stock for the competition under difficult climatic conditions.
