4th October 2017 | Judge: David Winnington
I’d firstly like to start by saying thank you to Bath and West Dairy Show for the great honour of judging the Dairy Shorthorn classes. I’d been very much looking forward to it and it turned out to be a great pleasure for both Debbie and I. At the end of the day we felt we had been very spoilt and it was so good to meet friends old and new.
