It was an early start and a long day for sisters Sam and
Kim Hall and their cousin Teegan Hall, cleaning and grooming
their cattle and competing in the recent Southland A&P
Show's herdsperson competition on March 1.
Sam and Kim, of Waikaka, and Teegan, of Waianiwa, have been
coached in stockmanship by their uncle Rob Hall, of
Lilliesleaf Stud, Waikaia.
He provided the Angus heifers and calves, as well as
transport to Donovan Park, Invercargill.
Teegan was first in the novice herdsperson competition, while
Kim was second.
Sam won the junior herdsperson competition and then won the
Goodall youth beef herdsperson trophy.
Mr Hall was delighted with their achievements.
''I am really proud of them,'' Mr Hall said. ''I won the
Goodall trophy in 1986 and now Sam is getting her name on
that same trophy.''
He said competing in the A&P shows was ''a great family
