Ag students qualify for Perth Royal show finals

STUDENTS from the Denmark Agricultural College did well recently at the annual Beverley Agricultural show.

The event was the last chance for the students to qualify for the Perth Royal show finals.

With their four Simmental cattle and four mixed-breed steers the three students won several ribbons in the cattle judging, parading and junior judging events.

The competition included an oral presentation to show visitors and judges.

College principal Kevin Osborne said that regional agricultural shows enabled Denmark students to demonstrate and practice their proficiency in animal handling.

“The opportunity to exhibit, compete and be judged on your merits at such a prestigious event as the Royal Show is an important part of the learning process offered by the college,” Mr Osborne said.

He congratulated Year-12 students Jayne Thompson, Trent Eikelboom and Zac Mostert.

At the Perth show later this year local students will pit their skills against other agricultural colleges – an arena in which Denmark has been very successful in the past.
