Supporting the future of British farming is central to everything we do at Asda. After all without British farmers we can’t bring you top quality British food, including great British meat.
And, as part of this commitment to the future of farming we regularly support Agricultural shows across the country.
These shows are at the centre of promoting good British food to the general public and are a great place for farmers and consumers to mix and learn from one another.
One of the shows we support is the English Winter Fair which happened last weekend. It’s a primestock show, where farmers show their livestock, competing to see which animals will produce the best meat for Christmas.
Our involvement at the show centres on the next generation of farmers and stock people as we sponsor the young handlers competitions. These classes are all about encouraging young stock people to display their talents and ability in handling cattle and presenting to be judged at a show.
Showing cattle isn’t as easy as some people may think and the talent these youngsters showed in their classes is a sure sign that we’ve got some great
young farmers coming through the ranks to form the next generation of farmers able to supply you with the best quality British produce.
The winner of the young handlers champsionship was 14 year old Melissa Donaldson from Yorkshire. She was a clear winner and a great advocate for the future of farming.
