The show also have an Open all breeds class and in this class impose an age limit on the calf, and so Izzy was not allowed to compete, a particularly crass decision as numbers of calves were short and on a miserable wet day she had stood in the rain for an hour whilst incompetent stewards failed to act with common sense or to apply the rule to other calves in the class.

Harry Crowter was placed first in his section of the Open Hanlers
