Feedback on the Lindley judges and inspector’s course

On March 12th and 13th of this year, several judges and inspectors came together in Lindley, Free State for an accreditation course. The course was presented by Mr. Kobus Bester and Mr. Jaco Maré, while Mr. Lourens Muller and Mr. Thys and Mr. Pieter Meyer graciously hosted the attendees at their farms for the practical and theoretical sessions.

The first day began with a theoretical discussion of cattle in the kraal. Participants were reminded of the phenotypical aspects that should be taken note of when inspecting and/or judging. The afternoon was spent reviewing theory presentations and was followed by a practical session. The practical assessment took place on day two, where participants were assessed on their phenotypic evaluation of the cattle after the previous day’s practice and revision.

The course was a wonderful opportunity for members to get together, learn and share knowledge and experience.

A special thank you to the presenters and hosts.
