New for young sheep handlers

A VETS is teaming up with a Todmorden Agricultural Show section to get young people involved this year.

The sheep section is holding a brand new section for junior handlers, sponsored by Hird and Partners, Walsden, at the show, which will be at Centre Vale Park, Todmorden, on Saturday, June 16.

Section secretary Margaret Wood said: “There are two classes, to be marked on handling and presentation only, and the animal shown can be either a sheep or a lamb, so if you are a young person who keeps sheep, why not have a go?”
