The North School Farm Successes at The Kent County Show13/07/18
The North School’s Young Farmers’ club attended The Kent County Show from 5th–8th July 2018 and regardless of the incredibly hot weather, achieved some brilliant results.
Twenty-two students, nine cattle, sixteen lambs, four pigs, four rabbits, four chickens, two ducks and two guinea pigs made the journey from Ashford to Detling to compete against sixteen other Kent Young Farmers’ clubs.
The North School won 48 rosettes and four trophies including Champion Pig Turnout, Reserve Champion Beef Conformation and Reserve Champion Calf Handling and Knowledge. The school’s Young Farmers Club was also presented with the trophy for Best Presented Club which is an outstanding achievement as this is judged over the whole weekend.
Rosettes are only awarded for five places and most of the classes had over fifteen animals, some of the lamb classes had over forty, so to come out with any rosette was a big success.
All students worked really hard and exhibited the school livestock very well, everyone should be very proud of their achievements.
