The Highland Stockjudging made a return to the Highland Area Calendar on Sunday 4th February, after not taking place for a number of years. The event was held by kind permission and support of Aberdeen & Northern Marts, Quoybrae, Watten. The event was well, supported by the four local clubs and unfortunately, none of the other Highland Area clubs attended, but the locals had a great afternoon. Firstly we would like to take the opportunity thank all the stock donners, judges, Quoybrae Mart and Nona Mackay (Catering) as without them the event would not be possible.
