In pictures: young farmers compete in shooting, fencing and livestock judging

A young farmers event saw shooting, fencing and livestock judging take place in the Royal Borough.

The Berkshire College of Agriculture in Burchetts Green Road hosted a pre-show classes event attended by Windsor and Maidenhead Young Farmers, Berkshire Young Farmers and a number of other Berkshire-based clubs on Sunday.

On the day the clubs had the chance to compete ahead of upcoming county shows. The event winners will go on to compete against clubs from other counties.

The clubs took part in a variety of categories, including fencing (building fences), clay pigeon shooting, cookery classes and judging horses and livestock.

The attendees used the event as a chance to prepare for the Berkshire Young Farmers County Show, which takes place in Englefield on Sunday, May 26.

Eunace Wilson, Berkshire Young Farmers club secretary, said: “All the young farmers were happy to be competing, when they saw their names on the score boards not all of them had realised they had won.”

“It’s nice when anyone can win things, it’s not just based on expertise but on how they have delivered it too."
