First prize for Jolan and Cheeky calf

Today was Waimauku School AG(ricultural) day. For those cityslickers who do not know what AG day is, it is a day where all  children have the opportunity to showcase their hand-reared calf, lamb or chicken along with a variety of other categories for those unable to rear an animal.

Jolan entered with her calf “”. is only 5 weeks old, a Herefold-Fresian crossbreed. She has been very sick about two weeks ago and we almost lost her. Thanks to North Vets for their help all went well.

Both girls got two cups, three ribbons and an honours award
