Herds Competition 2008:

The 2008 herds competition which was judged in July and August had the largest amount of entries since it began in 2006 . The herd size categories were small herds 5-12 breeding females , medium herd 13-30 breeding females , large herd plus breeding females . Points are awarded for genetic indices ,health & condition of cattle ,docility ,knowledge & interest of both your own herd and Limousin breed and conformity  to breed type . We would like to extend our sincere thanks to our to judges Mr . Peter Henshall of the Ringway Herd and Mr Michael Priestley of the Brontemoor Herd . Both judges had unfortunately to endure inclement weather conditions however they perfomed their duties with great interest and good humour .

Mr Henshall and Mr Priestley were impressed with the standard of cattle seen with particular mention to the quality of females .
