FIRST CLASS OF THE 2021 ‘VIRTUAL’ BRITISH SIMMENTAL SHOW OPENS THIS WEEK!
Back by highly popular demand, the 2021 ‘Virtual’ British Simmental Show gets underway this week! One of the highlights of the 2020 year for members, and for the ever-growing audience watching online around the world, last years ‘virtual’ show saw an incredible 745 pedigree British Simmental animals enter entered over ten classes by 161 breeders from all four corners of the UK. This ‘good fun’ competition proved to be a social media hit being the largest event of its type in the year, and proving to be a fantastic showcase of the breed highlighting some terrific British Simmental cattle and bloodlines.
So very much back by popular demand, here we go again and with the same simple principles as last year with just one or two tweaks. A picture-based competition, and with a video class introduced this year, the main aim continues to be the promotion of the wonderful Simmental breed, with pictures of quality cattle showcasing all the great attributes Simmentals have to offer. The first class is as follows:
Class 1: Autumn born bull calf, born between 1st July 2020 and 31st December 2020. Calf name and date of birth to be stated.
This first class will be formally opened this Friday, 25th June, and run for one week. The next class will then be opened, and so on, for the remaining weeks. Entries will be required in by Thursday Midnight for the respective classes. Thereafter the respective classes will be judged over the weekend with all photographs entered dripped out from the Monday on Facebook and with the ‘big reveal’ of results later in the same week. All entries are required to be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
If you had a go in 2020 then please do so again. If you watched in from the outside last year then now’s your chance to have a crack in 2021! Your support is what will again make this event. We again very much hope that this competition can be a talking point and a bit of fun for everyone to take part in. Most important of all is the anticipation of the flood of wonderful pictures across social media promoting the British Simmental breed.
