CATTLE SECTION (OPEN)
SATURDAY 7th JULY 2018
LOWER LANE, LONGRIDGE
The cattle section at Goosnargh & Longridge Show gives farmers the opportunity to showcase their best livestock whilst competing to win best of breed and ultimately champion dairy or champion beef animal.
A cow is judged on their ability to produce high quality milk or beef whilst remaining healthy. On show day cows will be walked around the ring whilst the judge carefully assesses the conformation of each cow.
A dairy cow will be judged on many aspects that can be attributed to economical and healthy milk production. For example the judge will be looking at the shape of the udder and position of the teats.
Similarly a beef a cow will be judged on the aspects that can be attributed to economical and healthy beef production, whilst producing desirable beef cuts for the butcher. For example the judge will be looking at the shape, size and fleshing of the cow’s rump.
We have classes for pedigree Holsteins and any other breed in the dairy section. Beef classes include pedigree British Blues, pure bred continental and native breeds, as well as cross bred commercial cattle.
Young handlers aged 26 years and under also compete on show day, being judged on their knowledge and presentation of their animal in the ring. Dairy young handlers and beef young handlers are judged separately, before concluding with a supreme young handler, dairy or beef.
Did you know: You can lead a cow upstairs, but not downstairs. Cow’s knees can’t bend properly to walk downstairs.
