STOCK JUDGING RESULTS

29 July 2020

STOCK JUDGING RESULTS
 Over the last ninety years this competition has somewhat been developed quite like the livestock industry in Northern Ireland, from originally members judging pigs, dairy, sheep and beef to more recent times members judging beef, sheep and dairy.
 
Government restrictions recently have meant that the population has had to social distance and isolate which meant that several Young Farmers’ Clubs of Ulster competitions have not be able to happen. However, the Association has turned to online platforms to continue its competition calendar.
 
In the ninety years of the Association this was the first time that the Stock Judging Competition was  held online without members visiting well-respected farms across the country. The online platform was similar to the normal competition with members judging two rings and one assessment animal.
 
The Association was rather dubious about this move; however, the members came out in their forces to support this move. Overall, over 1800 members took part in the competition.
 
YFCU would like to take this opportunity to thank Ulster Bank for their continued sponsorship of the competition.

Below are the results of the individual competitions:
