COUNTRY LIFE Leverets say High! The Leverets, the IW Foot Beagles Supporters Club, recently visited the farm of Mr. and Mrs. Michael Poland, near Wroxall. Barry Isaacson gave a tour of the prize winning highland cattle which are part of the leading show fold in the country this year. The tour took them up to the fields and they were able to view some of the 200 head of cattle on the farm. Back in the yard stockman Shane Breaker and Charlie showed how they washed the cattle and blow-dried them, all part of the show preparation routine. More than 50 friends and members of the Leverets attended, with members providing welcome refreshments.
