National Young Show Stars

Launch of a new event for the livestock farming calendar, that of National Young Show Stars, which takes place on the 2nd April in partnership with the Three Counties Agricultural Society, with the event taking place at the Malvern-based show ground. 
The event organisers are calling all breed societies to think about nominating teams to attend the event and I’ve attached the entry form for the Young Sheep Team. Teams of three young sheep handlers aged 8-24 (and two sheep) will attend and be judged on their teamwork, stock judging, trimming and presentation, ring craft and knowledge of the livestock sector, with the ultimate winning team getting the chance to take advantage of an overseas trip. 
Some teams have already entered via pedigree breeders or other “team sponsors”, but feel free to nominate your own teams. Along with the entry form for sheep other entry forms for the other competitions (beef, dairy, pigs, butchers and auctioneers) can be downloaded at www.nationalyoungshowstars.com and I have also attached the original press release that was sent to the main Ag press, I would be grateful if you could post it on your Society website and share on any social media networks as well.  
If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to contact myself or event organiser Neil Lloyd on 07970 061796.
