Young Breeders Field to Photo Competition
30th July 2020
This year we are launching a new competition for our Young Breeders. This competition is set in the format of field to photo and that’s exactly what we want you to show the judges.
Our Judges for the competition are Wendy Young from Clippaholics and Sam Wake from Cattle Services (AYR) Ltd
We want you to submit photos and a short video of the calf before, during and after preparation and also give the judges some insight in to what you have carried out to ensure the strengths of the animal have been presented to their best potential.
The final photo wants to be as professional as possible and if you require some help to do this that is acceptable and we would like the competitor to be holding the animal in the final photo.
We expect you to use calves of an adequate size for the competitor to show his or her skills. Any products such as glues and sprays can be used but the adding of false hair to the animal or anything else is prohibited.
The competition is split into three age groups.
Class 1 is for 12-year olds and under on the 1st of August 2020 (Adults can help with all aspects of the calf’s preparation but the video and pictures must show the competitors evolvement in the process)
entries close on the 21st of August.
Class 2 is for 13-17-year olds on the 1st of August 2020 (competitor to exhibit all aspects of preparation and finish product in pictures and video. Getting pictures and videos are the only time that help can be used in this age group)
entries close on the 14th of August
Class 3 is for 18-27-year olds on the 1st of August 2020 (competitor to exhibit all aspects of preparation and finish product in pictures and video. Getting pictures and videos are the only time that help can be used in this age group)
entries close on the 14th of August.
We want this to be a fun competition so you can all show your calves that you had earmarked for the shows this year. Please remember to Stay Safe and social distance when possible to compete in this event.
