Hello All,

The Duxbury Clipper is hoping to do a photo page of our club from the farm to the fair this summer.  A photographer has asked to stop by our meeting at the farm tomorrow to get some pix - so be ready or if you prefer not to be photographed, just let us know!

Dairy Judging Tryouts

Dairy Judging Tryouts!

Save the date and more details will be out shortly. Please respond to the below questions so I can set up tours in a timely manner with the farms.

 

Saturday June 11th in Worcester County.  Hoping to go to 2 farms for a day of judging multiple breeds.  I need to confirm the farms, so once I do I will let everyone know.  Plan is to have registration at 9:30 and start judging @ 10AM stop around noonhave lunch/ travel to next farm for around 1pm and be done judging by around 3pm or so.  For those of you interested in the BIG E 4H judging team I will be having a separate evening for in depth reasons from this tour.  Date and place to be determined.  For beginner reasons we will go over each class with some reason information at the tour so you can get an idea of terms and parts.

 

Also on Thursday June 16th around 6:30pm at Spencer fair grounds we will be putting together some classes at the state Jersey show. This evening will be low key and allow for time for a lot of comparing of cattle.

 

Also please let me know if Thursday June 23rd would work for you.  I would like to do a tour in the Hampshire/ Franklin area during the day that day, but can do evening depending on responses from you guys.

 

Alyssa could you let me know if July 12 would work for a tour at Appleton?  Preferably during the day. 

 

Any questions please let me know.

Thank you Moira Poitras mpoitras@charter.net

Show Supplies

For those of you who are new, Corinne made a list of show supplies you will want to think about getting.  Not every kid needs everything - consider sharing with a buddy, using club supplies etc. There is also a flyspray list attached as a guide of good choices.  A great place to start looking is the ENasco Showing and Grooming Catalog.  Also don't forget to have a peek at the PDCA rules (Purebred Dairy Cattle Association).  Things have changed lately in regards to how to walk into the ring and rules of conduct while in the ring. Some of the not so up to date judges may go by the old rules - no way to tell, just use your own judgement. Happy Showing!

What you need to show your animal (You may not need everything on this list - put your name on everything you get) 

MUST:
• Show Halter (sleek, dainty - not chunky) 
• Rope Halter
• Show Clothes (white polo or button down, khakis or white chinos)
• Baby Wipes 
• Shampoo 
• At least one brush (horse brushes are good) 

Essential:
• Hairspray (clear magic // aqua net)
• Hairbrush • Clear spray paint // clear hoof polish
• Clippers 
• Fly Spray (not too harsh)
• Sunscreen (for animals with white)
• Hoof pick with brush
• Show box (plastic or wood, of larger size) 

Everything Else: 
• Baby Powder 
• Q-Tips 
• Coat Conditioner (Revive is the best)
• Whitening Shampoo (for animals with white) 
• Clipper guards (for belly hair) 

Topline: 
• Topline scissors // offset scissors 
• Small clippers
