A Narrogin agriculture student will represent WA in New Zealand after winning the State beef cattle junior judging competition at the Perth Royal Show.

James Wasley of the WA College of Agriculture — Narrogin, will compete at the Hawkes Bay Show in Hastings, New Zealand in October next year.

WACA Narrogin principal Stephen Watt said Mr Wasley had excelled at cattle judging from his first year at the college.

“James has worked on a mixed- enterprise beef farm in Dandaragan but he became interested in cattle judging while studying here (WCA Narrogin),” he said.

“As a Year 12 student, he entered his first cattle judging competition at the Wagin Woolorama in March, won the final and qualified for the State final at the Perth Royal Show.”
