Judging


This beautiful Hereford Steer was for the weight guessing competition. But there were plenty of more serious competitions being judged, whether it be prize winning livestock, Mum's best dahlias, the kids cute drawing, Uncle Harry's huge pumpkins, or Aunty Mabel's unbeatable fig jam and preserves.

  6. There is no breed more pleasing to the eye than a hereford. They have a beautiful chunky chest, and their markings are so very clean and distinct. We had herefords on our farm when I was a kid.
