Tintern Young Farmers achieved outstanding success at the Royal Melbourne Show. For only the second time in the past 20 years, Tintern won the much converted schools competition trophy. This challenging competition judges the students both individuals and collectively over a four day period. Our students were acknowledged for their impressive contributions as a team, assisting the public and helping other sheep breeders. The students and staff were delighted to achieve this accolade.
In competition with over 100 other school students, Tintern achieved outstanding individual results as follows.
- Stephanie McDonald won first place in both senior handling and the senior junior judging section.
- Daisy McMillan achieved first in the senior long wool judging.
- Amy Taylor won first in the long wool judging and first overall for junior judging.
- Olivia Cross won first in the junior handling and two second places in the meat and wool junior judging.
- Ashley Cross won first in short wool judging , third in the long wool judging and fourth in the junior handling.
Tintern also won the best maintained team in this competition.
A huge thanks to Gavin Wall, Liz Wall and Liz Cutter for their ongoing support and efforts with our Young Farmers. We are currently away competing at Royal Geelong show this weekend. Hopefully we will see just as many blue ribbons this show! Go Tintern!
