Great Berwick host National Longhorn AGM

The Barker family very kindly hosted part of The Longhorn Cattle Society AGM at Great Berwick Farm over the weekend of 14 -16 November. The main interest in visiting Sam was to see how he was running his beef enterprise and to hear how he is producing some of the finest Longhorn meat in the country. The herd is now one of the largest registered with the Longhorn Society and Sam is successfully supplying select retailers and an ever growing loyal customer base.

In addition to seeing the herd and the purpose built cold and cutting room there was also a stock judging competition for all the guests to put their stockmanship eye to the test. Sam Barker and Peter Guest had sorted three pens of cattle and David Bevan very kindly gave the final say on placing the steers, in calf heifers and freshly calved cows.
