Kim Sales reports.
This year’s Frome Show was held on Saturday September 14th at West Woodlands Showground, Frome, Somerset. Four exhibitors had 18 cattle forward for Judge, Colin Gleed to place. This show marked the return to the Showring after nearly 4 years of absence due to movement restrictions, of the team from Bickfield. And what a return for us!! Not only did we secure Champion and Reserve Champion Guernsey, we were awarded the Supreme Dairy Championship.
