National Hereford Show 2022 & Young Handlers

The National Hereford Show 2022 was held on Sunday 14th August as it returned to the Tullamore Show! The show was a great success with over 90 Hereford cattle exhibited on the day and record numbers of spectators stopping by to watch the action.

Taking on maybe the most important job of the day was Ms. Maddie Clarke, daughter of Robert, who judged the Hereford Junior & Senior Young Handler classes. Maddie has been heavily involved in the Hereford, Angus and Charolais youth programmes in the UK for several years now and just recently she won the UK Charolais Youth National Stockjudging Final and will now be progressing to the Charolais Championship Final in Moulins, France. We wish Maddie the very best of luck going forward.

There was good turn out of Young Handlers and the standard was extremely high among all of the competitors. Congratulations to all young Handlers on the day who each did a stand-out job!
