The Brecknock Annual Hedging match
The Brecknock Annual Hedging match was held by kind permission of Mr & Gethin Davies at Glanirfon, Cilmery, Builth Wells. The 61stBrecknock YFC hedging match went very well with a total of fifteen members competing.
The members demonstrated two different styles of hedging which included stake and pleach and farmers. The judge was looking for cleanliness of pleaching, strength against stock, finish and firmness and a good top line was highly important. The judge for the day was Mr Mike Starkey from Dorstone.
