The Highland Cattle Society hosted their first Online Summer Show to raise funds for R.A.B.I and RSABI.
Farmers up and down the country were invited to enter photos of their highland cattle into the eight-class show. As the cattle did not have to be dressed for show, there was a greater opportunity for farmers to take part and submissions included those from non-showing backgrounds.
Society members Stuart Campbell and Daniel Rowbottom judged the competition. Overall champion went to Marina of Borland, owned by Rhian Thomas & R. Davies. Rob Ruadh of Gartochonzie, owned by Maureen MacArthur & John Ashton, was reserve champion.
Stuart Campbell said: “In some classes we had over 20 entries, far more than in a normal show. We were so pleased with the standard of cattle, many of whom we would not normally see.
“It was really difficult to choose the winners. We have also learnt to use some new technology – not normally used when judging cattle.”
