Ellie Clegg Preparing for Garstang Show

How long have you been showing at Garstang?

I started showing in 2017 after buying my first pedigree Beef Shorthorn.

When do the preperations start for the show and what sort of things do you have to do?

I start preparing for the show season very early, I start with halter training my cows, from a very young age, brushing them whilst tied up to get them used to it. When showtime gets closer I walk my cows and teach them how to stand properly. A couple of weeks before the show, I wash my cows to get the majority of dirt off them, and brush them. The day before the show I wash them again with special cow shampoo and warm water, I rinse them off then dry them ready to go to the show the next day.

What do you love about Garstang Show?

I love taking my cows to the show because all my family and friends will be there and i enjoy walking round the ring with my cows and talking to the judges about them.

Well we look forward to seeing Ellie and her Shorthorns at the show!!
