Hereford NI Youth Focus – January Profile – John Andrews

imageI am John Andrews, aged 16 from Raloo, Larne. We started breeding Herefords roughly 8 years ago under the name of Mountview.

My interest developed by generally helping out around the farm and as this is a relatively new venture, we are all learning together!

imageI was very pleased to be awarded The Stanley Christie Cup at the Annual Dinner in October 2016, for young handler in 2015.
Unfortunately our show season last year did not go to plan following a T.B. Outbreak just before Balmoral Show. Thankfully, we were all clear by the end of September and went on to win Supreme Female at the calf show held in Dungannon in October 2016.

Hopefully this bodes well for the future and I am looking forward to attending as many shows as possible this incoming year!
