In this article, the author looks at some of the ways young people can get involved with showing stock. Seeing how stock farmers work was a real eye-opener. When an animal selected for future breeding is found to have a defect it will be sent to slaughter, no questions asked. Whether it is offering young people a chance to learn stock-judging skills or the ability to present cattle for show and sale, anyone thinking of making a career out of cattle should consider joining one of the Breed Society programmes.
