Boys and Girls Agricultural Club Championship Day

The 2014 Boys and Girls Agricultural Club Championship Day was held on Thursday 20 November at Canterbury Agricultural Park.

Outlying Canterbury Primary Schools were given the opportunity to compete in livestock judging, similar to what they would experience at an A&P Show. To qualify for the Championships, entrants had to have attended a school pet day within their region.

Students were judged across three sections: Care and Attention, Leading and Handling and their Project Books which were submitted prior to the Canterbury A&P Show.

Over 80 entries were received, comprising beef calves, dairy calves, lambs, poultry, pigs and goats.

Each participant was required to parade their animal in front of the judges and answer questions on their care. After some serious deliberation, winners across all sections and classes were decided. Entrants received a certificate and Tip Top ice cream. Winning entries also received ribbons and trophies.
