As the 2020 show season is currently on hold, the BWCS wants to give members the opportunity to be able to show off the stock they are quite rightly proud of, so this summer we will be bringing you virtual breed classes via the internet!
Entries are open to the following classes:
CLASS 1: HEIFER, BORN ON OR AFTER 1ST JAN 2019
CLASS 2: HEIFER, BORN IN 2018
CLASS 3: COW, IN CALF OR WITH CALF AT FOOT, BORN ON OR BEFORE 31ST DEC 2017
CLASS 4: BULL, BORN ON OR AFTER 1ST JAN 2019
CLASS 5: BULL, BORN ON OR BEFORE 31ST DEC 2018
Entries will close on 30th June 2020, so there's plenty of time to practice your camera skills and capture some great footage of your best stock - we look forward to seeing all of the superb animals out there from across the UK!
Members' submissions will be edited - in age order and giving equal representation to each entry - into one video for each class, with voters then able to view the classes and submit their votes via our website. Send your entries via email to: email@example.com (it will most likely be necessary to use a service like Google Drive for large files - search for this in the app store if uploading using a mobile device), making sure to state the animal's pedigree name.
Rules for the competition are as follows:
1. Only animals registered with the British White Cattle Society (UK) will be eligible and must be the bona fide property of a member of the BWCS at time of entry
2. Members may enter only one animal per class
3. Entries should be submitted in the form of either a video clip (minimum 10 seconds) or photo, with all content preferably captured in landscape format
4. Videos or photos submitted must have been taken during 2020
5. The entry gaining most votes in each class will be put forward to be voted on again in a final Championship
This competition is free to enter and just for fun, no need to halter train your animals and prizes will be in the form of glory!
