Follow Link for 2018 Results

The next generation of farmers have the chance to showcase their own purchased and reared cattle at Thainstone’s annual Young Farmers’ Overwintered Cattle Show and Sale organised by Aberdeen & Northern Marts. 
The event, sponsored by Ledingham Chalmers, attracts a total of £2,200 prize money along with a range of prizes and is followed by an auction of the exhibited cattle.
The contest is aimed at encouraging young farmers in the art of stockmanship through buying cattle at the autumn sales before rearing and training them through the winter for a show and sale in the spring.
The Calludrum cup was introduced to the competition in 2017 to emphasise the commercial aspects of livestock production, and is awarded to the exhibitor with the highest feeders’ margin, highest average daily live weight gain, best presented and paraded animal and best quality animal.
This show and sale gives the chance for young stock handlers to rear, prepare, show and sell their animals in friendly competition with their peers. The iBidder facility also means that the stock displayed can be viewed by potential buyers from all corners of the UK.
