CHAROLAIS YOUTH VIRTUAL STOCKJUDGING COMPETITION 2021

We are sad that we cannot hold our regular Charolais Youth Final at the GYS.

Instead we are proud to announce our Virtual Charolais Youth Stockjudging Competition.

To participate you must be aged 8-26 and you must only make one entry

There are three videos for you to watch as many times as you like,

Class 1 – for this you must watch the video and place the Cattle ABXY in your preferred order.

Class 2 – for this you must also watch the video and place the Cattle ABXY in your preferred order.

Finally the Guess the Weight video must be watched and a weight guessed.

When placing the cattle think about your reasons why and note then down.

All three answers must be given for the entry to be accepted.

The top 5 from each age group will then be asked to give reasons to a Master judge via Zoom.

Prizes will be awarded for the winner of each of the junior (8-14), intermediate (15-18) & senior (19-26) sections.

In the event of a tie, the winner will be the competitor who most closely estimates the weight of a stock bull.

The winners will be posted on our website and Social media pages and judging will be open for the young judges. Stock judging competitors will have until midnight on 31/07/21 to place their animals via the competition entry form below.

The top 5 will be announced though-out the day on 06/08/21 they will then have to give reasons to the master judge on 13/08/21.
