Southern Young Farmers match

After another week of rain, hopes were high with the forecast of bright and relatively warm weather. However, the day started out murky and with a breeze blowing, it never really got any better. The field, kindly provided by the Duggan family, was surprisingly dry and resulted in a good standard of ploughing.


SYFC230116 (104)With no horse classes due to the outbreak of Stangles, a potential new class was demonstrated by #Ian_Tilley and #Gerry_Vernon – Land Rover ploughing.

With Gerry in the handles and Ian looking after the new ‘horse’ the pair stood out in a field of tractors – although how it would work with a team of two might never be tested.


Judges for the day were #Robbie_Corkish, #Philip_Hampton , #Billy_Clelland and #Dennis_Duggan.
