The competition presented by Achmea features three classes of beef cattle; Stud bulls, Stud females and Trade cattle, with free entry for all young people aged within primary and high school age groups.
Junior judges are required to view images and videos, rank the animals from one to four and provide a three-minute video outlining their reasoning.
