a commercial level. The unique Jersey advantage provides our

and true market place amongst our dairying counterparts.”
Jersey Young Breeders Shine
The Jersey Cattle Society
are thrilled to report an incredibly successful Young Breeders weekend,
kindly hosted by Woodway Jerseys. Our weekend consisted of a fantastic
clipping demonstration by Tom Smith of Bumblebeehall Jerseys who then
stayed to assist with any queries from our young members throughout
the morning. Our National Clipping Competition then took place with
Emily Davis (Rivermead) winning first place.
Sam Wake lead a very informative
showing demonstration with the assistance of Tom Saxby and Adam Fagg.
Our overall showmanship winner was Emily Davis with Lauren Parkhouse
standing Reserve and Peighton Roberton Honourable Mention.
We are of
course indebted to our wonderful hosts Sally & Aaron Spence
and Mrs Liggins along with the assistance of William & Edward
Spence with their cousins Frank and Mark Griffen. Our Judge Sam Wake
did an extremely thorough job of judging classes of exceptionally
high quality and our sincere thanks go to him as they do to all sponsors,
stewards, organisers and we thank our President Su Mahon for kindly
presenting the array of prizes”. [click
