Its not what others think of you its what they think of your animals, well at least it should be and who says it can't increase profitDon’t know any farmers around here who focus on winning prizes at shows . . .
most are just interested in maximising profit, not what others think of them . . .
And the rosettes were displayed in the butchers to show the quality of what they sold.just as a bit of info my dad used to sell his cattle at the local market they were shown first won prizes and certificates if good enough and then were auctioned to the local butchers who then butchered prepared and sold locally in their shops that cow having not moved more than 5 miles from were it was born . Thats how it was done then pride in what you do and how you do it .
