WEST Oxfordshire farmers were again to the fore in the Moreton-in-Marsh Show fodder crops competition.

Greg Dancer, of Manor Farm in Cornwell, retained the BOCM Challenge Cup for the best sample of clamped grass silage and the Jack Watts Memorial Trophy for best sample of seed hay. He also took third place in the big bale silage class.

Alan and Richard Smith, of nearby Kingham Hill Farm, won the big bale silage class and were runners-up in the clamped grass silage, cereal straw and big bale haylage classes and third equal for seed hay.

The classes were judged by Ian Pearman, from Over Norton, of hay and straw merchant Abbot & Co (Wessex), at the Fox Inn, in Broadwell, Gloucestershire.

The prizes will be presented on February 13 at the Fosseway Garden Centre in Moreton.
