Farmers start things early

YOUNG farmers will start the run down to this year’s show at a stock judging competition this weekend.

On Sunday, June 12, they will be at Pextenement Farm, Eastwood, Todmorden, where competition is expected to be strong as they test their skills on judging butcher’s lambs, Lonk breeding sheep, Friesian dairy cattle and large white pigs.

Calderdale Young Farmers will also be on the field on show day (June 18, Centre Vale Park, Todmorden) with a range of fun activities for young people. You don’t have to be from a farming background to have a go at these.
