Local school children got their chance to shine at Canterbury Agricultural Park last Thursday.
Children from central and North Canterbury schools gathered for the Canterbury A&P Association’s annual Boys’ and Girls’ Agricultural Club Day.
To qualify for the competition, entrants had to have attended a school pet day within their region.
President Chris Herbert, of Omihi in North Canterbury, was impressed with the number of entries, with 22 entries in the senior lambs class, which he judged with his wife, Katrina.
There were also 13 junior lambs, two goats, one pig and five poultry.
For the second year running, there were no calf entries due to the Mycoplasma bovis outbreak.
Entries were judged across three sections: care and attention, leading and handling and project books.
