A showmanship is a demonstration competition that assesses how well the young breeder presents his cattle in the ring, how he implements the judge’s instructions, and whether he always works his cattle well, so that the benefits of the cattle are optimally presented. Crucial is the performance in the ring and whether the young breeder observes the rules for showing and putting down the cattle.
The demonstration competition was open to young breeders from all countries aged 10 to 28 years. There was no restriction on the breed of cattle.
