Hannah Baldwin, 22, is an Agriculture with Animal Science student that is going from strength to strength. Although she does not have a background in farming, she is paving the way to success in the agricultural field through her work with cattle.
Having competed in the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in Toronto, where she showcased her Heifer cows as part of the UK team, Hannah has learnt a great deal from the experience. She compared the way the Canadians show as compared to the UK, commenting on how the Canadian show gave less time to walk whereas, in England, the whole affair is more relaxed.
The experience has shed light on international competitions for Hannah and how, going forward, she will learn from the event. She commented, “We were really happy about how we conducted ourselves. There was a lot to learn and a lot to do. I’ve made some great contacts and would love to go back next year.”
Featured below are some of Hannah’s snapshots of herself and her team mates, Robyn Westcott and Rachel Armour, with their heifers. With the experience of competing, along with her placement work, and her recognition as National Young Stockperson of the Year at Young Handler in 2016, there is no doubt that Hannah driven towards success and is achieving her goals.
