There were 353 of Canada’s top dairy youth from 51 teams across seven Canadian provinces that took part in the 30th annual Canadian 4-H classic junior dairy show at the Royal Winter Fair Nov. 7 to 9.
Club members from 12 to 21 show their knowledge by working together to produce top quality displays and exceptionally well-groomed calves. Friendships and camaraderie are evident throughout the barns.
Showmanship judge Bruce Sayles, along with associate judge, Bloyce Thompson, had their skills challenged as they sorted through three strong groups. Reserve champion showman went to the second place senior, James Walker, from Wellington County.
The classic is an opportunity for the nation’s dairy youth to showcase their talent and unite with other members at a world-class event.
Various other guests were also on hand as the competition celebrated 25 years at the Royal Agriculture Winter Fair.
