We hope that the competitions will be enjoyed by those attending the Show and we wish all the entrants the very best of luck on the day.”
Harper Adams University College is delighted to announce that it will be sponsoring two dairy cattle competitions at this summer’s Royal Welsh Show.
Harper Adams will be the official sponsor of the FitzHugh Championship – Dairy Breeds, and the Young Dairy Cattle Handlers’ competition, taking place on Wednesday July 25 and Thursday July 26 respectively.
Principal of the University College, Dr David Llewellyn said: “Harper Adams is at the forefront of dairy research and education and we are therefore pleased to be able to support these important competitions at the Royal Welsh Show.
“With so much going on in the Welsh dairy sector right now, and with a strong contingent of Welsh students at the University College, we felt the time was right to get behind some of the best examples in the industry by sponsoring these events. We hope that the competitions will be enjoyed by those attending the Show and we wish all the entrants the very best of luck on the day.”
The FitzHugh competition category recognises the best breed pairs consisting of the Breed Champion and one other in the dairy section.
The Young Handlers class is for people aged 14 to 26, and will judge their ability to show dairy cattle to their best advantage in the ring.
