The International Dairy Week Youth Show is expected to attract high participation and strong audience interest this year.

A youth clinic will run on Sunday, January 19 from 11.30am, which is designed to help young people develop skills including show ring etiquette, preparing an animal for showing, clipping, showmanship, washing, feeding and herdsmanship.

There is no charge and the clinic runs for about one hour with free information hand-outs and give-aways.

On Monday, January 20, the ABS Australia/Ridley Agri Products All Breeds National Youth Show will be held.

There are 16 classes for junior and senior handlers depending upon age. Respected industry breeders will judge and pass on their knowledge and expertise to up-and-coming exhibitors.

The Sheri Martin Memorial Youth Showmanship Classes will follow the national youth show on Monday.

There will be prizes in three sections: seniors, intermediate and juniors.

The Holstein Youth Dairy Youth Challenge will also be held on Monday at 3.30pm.

Teams of 10 from different dairy groups with members under 22 years will compete.

There is an emphasis on participation and involvement. Each team will include at least three junior members.
