The S.W. All Breed Calf Show was held at Wadebridge, Cornwall, on Tuesday August 26th. There were 15 Calves for Judge Mark Davies to inspect and 7 young handlers were put through their paces. Notable performance came from 7 year old Izzy Phillips who competed in the Novice class against all breeds, coming first out of around 12 other handlers. Two other youngsters also took part in this class, William and Henry Eustice, who were showing calves from the Coryn Family.
