A group of expert young handlers who qualified at various shows throughout the province displayed their skills to perfection at the final of the Cydectin® Young Handlers competition at Clogher Valley Show.

Judge Mary Kerr was impressed with the standard of stockmanship and congratulated all of the competitors on their handling skills. She eventually awarded the championship to George Hanthorn and the reserve award to Matthew Hall.

Aurelie also paid tribute 
to all of the shows for organising the qualifying rounds 
and especially to Clogher Valley Show for co-ordinating and hosting the final competition.
