James Doherty, Firstlook Genetics and Knowlesmere Holsteins, teams up with genetic consultant and Holstein Young Breeders (HYB) co-ordinator, Ross Murray to share all the tips of the trade and help you reach that top spot.

 

Mr Doherty won at the European Championships in 2016 held in Colmar, France representing the UK for HYB; he attended the European Young Breeders School in Belgium in 2014 and the Italian National Show in Cremona in 2017.

 

He was crowned HYB national clipping champion in 2017 and has wide experience in judging at shows across the UK.

 

The video covers selecting a calf to show, as well as the correct way to clip it to accentuate its good points and improve its poorer points.
