The 2017 Boys and Girls Ag Day took place at the Canterbury Agricultural Park on Thursday 23 November
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 attend a school pet day within their region.
Students were judged across three sections: Care and Attention, Leading and Handling and their Project Books which are submitted prior to the Canterbury A&P Show.
In 2017 nearly 80 entries were received, comprising beef calves, dairy calves, lambs, poultry and goats.
Each participant is 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.
Congratulations to everyone involved.
