Starburst Herefords – Day out at Turriff Show 2013 (Scotland)

Starburst mini Herefords (and their regular Herefords) showing against the BIG boy Herefords at Turriff Show, Scotland.

View all the photos here

Andrew & Marie Bayliss showcased some Starburst Hereford cattle at the Turriff annual show.  Mini Goldrush was a highlight and placed a respectable third in Any Other Breed against some spectacular Lincoln Reds.  Goldrush drew a lot of attention, with many people wanting to photograph him especially beside standard size Herefords.   The weather was tremendous and great fun was had by all.

VIRTUAL CATTLE SHOW FOR MINIATURE HEREFORDS 2013

In 2011 a group of Miniature Hereford enthusiasts from Australia and New Zealand got together to set up a Virtual Cattle Show via the internet for Miniature Herefords.    As only a few breeders in the Southern Hemisphere are exhibiting at shows we thought this would be a good way for others to showcase their animals as well as promote the breeding of Miniature Herefords.   This is especially the case for those who live too far away from any show centres or have no means of getting to one.   The show is designed to be fun with no entry fees but we are aiming to have Certificates for placegetters and possibly sponsors who can donate prizes for placegetters in their particular country.

Except for three classes animals must be registered as Herefords with HAL, NZHA, AHA or any other overseas equivalent and be of a Frame Score 1 or less in order to qualify for entry.   For the breed classes if the animals are not halter trained then you will not be expected to try and groom them but they are preferred to be as clean as possible so it might pay to pick the times you photograph them.   The Judges will be professional people with experience in judging cattle, photography and the requirements of the competition.

The first show in 2011 had a pleasing number of entrants and this was doubled in 2012.   We hope to continue to build up each year and are happy to have feedback from interested people.

Show Schedules can be seen on the following websites:   www.amhbn.com, www.mhbaonline.org and www.riverletsherefords@blogspot.com along with helpful hints for photography.   Official entry forms are included and, if necessary, further enquiries can be made to me (Janet Poole) via riverlets @ gmail.com
