Ahoghill YFC annual club stock judging competition

Ahoghill Young Farmers have held their clubs annual stock judging competition during which members had to judge all three Beef, Sheep and Dairy.

Thursday, 29th July 2021, 7:25 am

Seniors ranked all four animals in each of the categories and then presented their reasoning to the judge and also marked the assessment animal.

Junior members tackled the same task, although instead of giving reasoning for the order they placed the animals in, they had to give an in-depth description to the judge of the assessment animal and state their reasoning for the marks they gave.

The club would like to thank the three judges Ian Small, Sam Watson and Willie Chesney for helping us with our annual competition and David
