Brady Hore from Leitchville will be taking home a championship ribbon after yesterday’s youth events.
The future of Australian dairy farming was put to the test in hot conditions in the International Dairy Week arena yesterday.
About 120 young people, aged from eight to 21, showed their cattle, demonstrated how to prepare them for exhibition and even illustrated how to judge in 35°C heat.
Brady Hore, 13, from Leitchville, didn’t seem to notice the heat after winning the junior champion handler prize in the youth show and declaring he was excited and overwhelmed, with the best result he has ever achieved at Dairy Week.
He’s the third generation of farmers in his family and already has a ‘‘best in class’’ win from a previous year.
A regular competitor at show events, Zoe Hayes from Girgarre, won intermediate champion handler with a 12-month-old heifer owned by her family’s stud.
