Rebecca Hurd, an agricultural management graduate from the University of Plymouth, will operate from the family farm at Whitefield, near Wiveliscombe and combine the new Jersey role with her existing position as an agent for Cogent Breeding. Rebecca said: “I have gained considerable experience in pedigree livestock, including 10 years as sales co-ordinator at Sedgemoor Auction Centre for Greenslade Taylor Hunt, and will draw on this to improve service to Society members and promote the great advantages of the Jersey breed.”

Val Robinson, a former chair of Wensleydale YFC and field worker for Yorkshire YFC, brings 18 years’ experience of running a tenanted dairy farm and will be based at the family home in Leyburn. “I am fully committed to the dairy industry and know how hard it is out there.
