THE GARSTANG & DISTRICT AGRICULTURAL & HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY PROUDLY PRESENT

CATTLE

Chief Steward – Mr. Tom Richardson

Black and white dairy cattle are a common sight on the Fylde coast and Lancashire boasts some of the top showing dairy herds in the country. Classes for British Holsteins run alongside those for Ayrshires, a traditional red and white breed, and the less common, but still very important, Jerseys, often introduced to increase the richness and creaminess of the milk. Classes are always well-filled, so come along and find out how your milk is produced and see why local is best.

There are also many breeds of beef cattle in the UK, including some introduced from other European countries in comparatively recent years. The old English breed, the Hereford, is instantly recognisable with its rich, red coat and white markings, but white, black, red and even “blue” animals an be seen at the show. Other breeds you may recognise are the Highlands with their long shaggy coats and spectacular horns, and English Longhorns, another historic breed dating back centuries. A comprehensive commentary throughout these classes will tell you all you need to know!

Entries will be taken from 1st May 2020.

Note: Any cattle born after 1 July, 1996 require a Passport. It must accompany the animal at all times – this will be filled in as if going to a market – stamped by the show and then returned home. (The Signature of the secretary or Chief Steward will suffice.)

The TB testing exemption covering cattle movements to agricultural shows was revised on 1st July 2012 as follows:

Pre-movement testing of cattle in high TB risk herds (i.e. herds with a routine TB testing interval of 1 or 2 years) will be required for movements to shows if cattle will be at the show for more than 24 hours and/or housed i.e. kept inside at the showground.

Previously, pre-movement testing was not required when animals were moved to shows provided they were either returned to the farm of origin or went to slaughter after the show. The exemption will remain for movements to shows where cattle are not held for more than 24 hours and are not housed.

A clear pre-movement test is valid for 60 days from the date of the test. Therefore animals can be moved to more than one show during that post-test period provided that the last movement back to the home premises – or to slaughter, if applicable – is completed within 60 days of the test date.

Owners must ensure they do not book a TB test to take place within 60 days of completion of the previous TB test as this will not be regarded as an authorized test. Garstang Show cannot be held responsible in regard to TB testing, it is up to the exhibitor to ensure correct procedures have been followed.

For general information on pre-movement testing, please see the Defra website:

http://www.defra.gov.uk/animal-diseases/a-z/bovine-tb/animal-keepers/testing/

From 2016 Post Movement TB Testing has been introduced in certain circumstances. Garstang Show is not currently affected as the cattle are not on the showground for more than 24 hours and are not housed in a building with sides on. We are therefore exempt from pre and post movement testing. Please note Garstang Show is not responsible if these circumstances change.

Livestock Tampering

Any artificial contrivance or device of any description found on or proved to have been used on an animal at any time whilst that animal is in the Showground, either for preventing the flow of milk or for any other improper purpose, will disqualify that animal from being awarded a prize, and any prize awarded prior to discovery will be forfeited. The Instigator or The Owner of the said animal may be prohibited from again entering Stock for any of the Society’s Shows, for such period as the Committee may see fit.

For the purpose of this Regulation, the term ‘improper practice’ shall be held to include setting of teats, and generally any other practice including tampering or of their own or any other animal by the exhibitor or any other person which results in the animals being shown other than in a natural state, and the Society reserves the right to have all animals inspected by the Society’s Veterinary Officers, either prior to, during, or after judging. The Society will not tolerate the administration to show exhibits (entered either for competition or sale/demonstration) of tranquillisers or other drugs which may in any way affect the performance of the animal in question to have the effect of making it behave in the show ring in a manner which is not natural. The Society reserves the right to take any necessary samples. Any Person or Exhibitor (or his representative) who is found to have administered or permitted the administration of any such tranquilliser or drugs to any Show exhibit will be reported to the Organising Committee, and dealt with at their discretion. In addition the matter will be referred to the appropriate Breed Society or Organisation.

The Following Holstien UK rules will be enforced.

  1. Misrepresenting the age or ownership of an animal;
  2. Filling an animal’s rumen unnaturally with liquid (tubing);
  3. Balancing the udder by any means other than by leaving naturally produced milk in any or all quarters;
  4. Treating the udder internally with an irritant, counter-irritant, or any other substance to temporarily improve conformation or produce unnatural animation;
  5. Treating the udder externally with an irritant, counter-irritant, or any other substance to temporarily improve conformation or produce unnatural animation. (allowable practices/substances include the use of external antiinflammatory substances for the well-being of the animal);
  6. Causing any unlicensed substance to be entered inside the teat orifice;
  7. The setting or sealing of teats with any substance;
  8. Roping udders and the use of objects to physically improve definition of the suspensory central ligament;
  9. Administering epidural anaesthesia (blocking tails) and/or applying any irritant either externally or internally to the perineal (rectum and vagina) area;
  10. Inserting foreign material/articles under the skin, into the topline (including hair not attached to its own hair follicle) or on the feet (administration of prescribed medications, and false switches and tails is permitted);
  11. Performing surgery of any kind to change the natural contour of appearance of the animal’s body, hide or hair. (the removal of warts, teats and horns, clipping and dressing of hair and trimming of hooves is allowed);
  12. Wrapping hocks or draining fluid from hocks unless authorised by a veterinarian at the show;
  13. Attaching an appliance to an animal other than for milking;
  14. Criticising or interfering with any or all of the individuals involved in the organisation and judging of the show (including the judge, show management or other exhibitors) or any other conduct detrimental to the breed or show; and
  15. The wearing of shackles;
  16. Any other practices which in the reasonable opinion of the society causes unnecessary suffering to an animal, unfairly improves its performance in a show, or otherwise undermines or interferes with the integrity of the show, or brings the show or the society into disrepute.
  17. Shaving or cutting the hair on the ribs, using the very fine blades of the trimming machines or cutters, such that the ribs appear scratched or bald, is forbidden.

Any Exhibitor wishing to lodge an objection, having reference to Livestock exhibited at this Show, must make the same in accordance with the objection requirements of the Society. If, on investigation, the objection is not sustained to the satisfaction of the Committee, the sum thus deposited shall, at the discretion of the Committee, be forfeited to the funds of the Society. All objections must be lodged on the same day as the alleged incident occurred in accordance with the objection regulations, and no objection will be SUBSEQUENTLY received, unless a reason, satisfactory to the Committee, be assigned for the delay.

Children should not be allowed to handle bulls or any large, fractious animal. An adult should always be in attendance to take over if a child is having difficulty maintaining control of any animal. The advice in the Approved Code of Practice “Preventing Accidents to Children in Agriculture” should be followed at all times.

No substitutions in Cattle Classes. All cattle will be under cover. Water and milking facilities will be provided. Any classes or class may be cancelled or amalgamated at the discretion of the Society. The Showground will be open for the reception of stock on the day prior to the Show.

All animals being exhibited must have been the bona fde property of the Exhibitor on Show Day. Certificates will be required if necessary.

Bull exhibitors should acquaint themselves with the Health and Safety Regulations Guidance Note GS36 regarding handling of bulls at agricultural shows. Any animal thought to be unsafe for the general public will not be allowed into the cattle tents. The Steward’s decision is final.

All animals will be checked for their halters being on correctly. Any animal found to be incorrectly haltered will not be allowed to enter the ring. Exhibitors must ensure that their animals are properly halter trained before the Show. Any entry thought to be unsafe for the general public will be asked to leave the ring.

THE STEWARD’S DECISION IS FINAL.

All bulls aged 9 months and over must have a ring through their nose.

During the period the Show is open to the public, NO STOCK should be left unattended.

1st and 2nd Prize Winners must parade for Championships. ALL ELIGIBLE ANIMALS MUST COME FORWARD FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIP.

 

If the Breed Champion or Reserve Breed Champion are not exhibitor bred, the judge will pick out the highest placed animal within the breed for the Exhibitor Bred Dairy Female Champion and the Best Exhibitor Bred Beef Animal.

 

1st, 2nd and 3rd PRIZE WINNERS MUST ATTEND THE GRAND PARADE.

In the interests of Health and Safety, the use of electrical equipment will be allowed in restricted areas only.

 

ENTRY FEE FOR ALL CLASSES £6.00.

Cattle Passports – According to the British Cattle Movement Service (BCMS) (correspondence dated 30 November 2001),”… movements to agricultural shows, which are not overnight, should be recorded on the Movement Summary page of the passport. You should record the movement OFF the holding, the movement ON to the showground and finally the movement ON to the holding. Barcode labels can also be used where relevant. Details of the name of the show and the date should be hand-written on the summary page.”

 

“When an animal goes to a show the keeper does not change, therefore it is the keepers responsibility to send movement cards to BCMS and to record the movement on the passport and the passport should accompany the animal to the show. The showground does not need to stamp the passport.” For further details contact BCMS helpline on 0845 050 1234.

(Subject to change of regulations. All exhibitors must comply with all statutory regulations)
