DogPro Plus Kojonup P & A Society Yard Trial
Saturday 19th October
This is the first official Yard trial to be held at the Kojonup Agricultural Show. The trial was organised by Allan Dunn.
There were eight competitors and 24 dogs competing. Three local farmers competed in the Farmer challenge, the winner of this was Tim Keogh with his dog Alfie.
Very well grown merino ewe hoggets where supplied by Ian Palmer for the trial, these ewes made for good yard trailing sheep as they made all the dogs do their best work to move them around the course.
Thanks to sponsors DogPro, Atlex Stockyards, Genstock, Ian Palmer for sheep and transport, Richard McGuire and Nathen Worberton for the use of portable yards
