This year saw a bumper entry of 39 calves from all over Scotland for the much-anticipated Stars of the Future calf show. The committee had been eagerly waiting for this day after last year’s show was sadly cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Chairman, Robert Paterson, spoke after the event and said: “It was a show to remember with exhibitors coming from as far south as Devon and as far north as Inverness, with the standard of cattle being as good as I have ever seen.”
