This follows the success of another keen member, Ruby Wright, of North Walsham YFC, who recently won the Aberdeen Angus Cattle Society's top award as best young exhibitor.
Ruby, aged 15, from Felbrigg, near Cromer, also runs her own "Ruby" herd of pedigree Angus cattle, which she started four years ago.
