A friendly teddy bear and his musical mates have enlivened the view from the A9 near Bankfoot and won top place in a national Young Farmers’ bale art competition.
The club behind the animal band of bears was Bankfoot JAC, whose entry was selected by TV presenter Lorraine Kelly from a line up of six colourful and eye catching finalist entries in this Scotland wide competition.

Members of the club had battled in torrential rain to put the artwork up a few weeks ago and, unfortunately,
the teddies sustained some “injury” in the storm the night they were put up. However, some emergency repair work the next day had them looking better than ever, and they went on to outshine the rest of the entries located throughout Scotland.
The other Perthshire club to make the six way final was Strathearn JAC (Perthshire district), which got praise for a bridge and groom.

Suzie Dunn, Scottish Association of Young Farmers Clubs (SAYFC) chairman, said: “Well done to Bankfoot and all the finalist clubs and to all those club members throughout Scotland who took part this year. It’s been great to see the Scotch Lamb brand taking pride of place in the bale art displays too.”
