AGRICULTURAL science students from high schools across the South East and Western Victoria gained practical cattle handling experience at the Mount Gambier Showgrounds yesterday.

Over 80 students braved the rain for the annual South East Cattle Handlers Workshop – a full day of hands-on seminars for Year 8 to Year 11 students to learn ringcraft, cattle care, clipping, washing and drying techniques, breeding technologies and the fundamentals of livestock judging.

The seminars were presented by volunteers
