A HUGE congratulations to Daisy Haigh of Tuxford YFC who represented Nottinghamshire over the weekend at the East Midlands Area Young Stockman of the Year competition in Leicestershire.
As part of the competition Daisy had to judge four sets of four animals, (Dairy Cows, Beef Cattle, Sheep and Pigs)and then give reasons to a panel of judges, followed by a Animal Health and Husbandry Questionnaire.
Daisy will now go through to the National finals, to represent Nottinghamshire and the East Midlands Area, due to be held in September at Harper Adams University.
Daisy is a regular in the stock lines at many shows with her own cattle and isn’t a stranger to YFC competitions either, she won the Roy Turner Junior Stock judging Perpetual Challenge Trophy (for the highest scoring junior in all stock classes) at this years Nottinghamshire Show, along with the individual title in the Lambs and the beef.
We wish you all the luck in the finals Daisy! Well done.
