Keen youth members of the Holstein Australia Northern Victorian sub-branch sweated it out in 40°C heat at a training day near Merrigum recently.
The 11 young people were in training to compete in this Sunday’s national youth challenge.
Under the guidance of tutors Neil Goodfellow, Mark Patullo and Bill Macadam they improved their skills in clipping and parading and also discussed the traits to look for in judging elite dairy cattle.
Sub-branch treasurer Chloe Goodfellow said the training was valuable and they were hoping to enter at least one, if not two, teams in the competition.
The group has also attended training sessions at Dean and Di Malcolm’s Bluechip Genetics property as well as Bev and Graeme Joyner’s and Kevin Fitzsimmons’ farms.
