East Anglian Jersey Cattle Club

2006 Review

Another year has nearly gone, the club this year hasn’t been very active, but our few gatherings are very sociable. We are very grateful to Jonathon and Ann Tomkinson for hosting our Committee and AGM at their farm, it is difficult to find a venue, if we have them in a Pub, we generally have the Public wandering through!

We had our Committee meeting at Punchards Farm in April, sorted out Club matters, had a delicious lunch, prepared by one of Mrs Tomkinson’s friends, then our AGM was held in the afternoon, unfortunately we never have many people to the AGM due to the decline of members in the club. We had as our guest speaker Mr Richard Johnson from Genus to tell us about the Jersey Breeders Club, before this, he presented the Club Cups.

RUGGLES BRISE CUP for the highest yielding cow in 305 days. Mr and Mrs Mahon Upgate Khans Kuckoo 868 kgs Fat and Protein.

Reserve Mr and Mrs Mahon Upgate Khans Kristmas 864 kgs Fat and Protein.

EGLINGTON CUP for the highest yielding herd in 305 days also went to Mr and Mrs Mahon Upgate herd with an excellent production performance of 666 kgs Fat and Protein.

Reserve Mr and Mrs Tomkinson 641 kgs Fat and Protein.

POSTLETHWAITE CUP for the highest total % Fat and Protein at 9.45 % was won again by Mr and Mrs Tomkinson Dunallan herd.

Our herd visit this year was to Upgate Farm on Wednesday 14th June in conjunction with the East Anglian Guernsey Breeders Club. We held a small stock judging competition, the well know Aryshire breeder Bill Doigh as our Master Judge. He had one class of Guernsey’ s and one of Jerseys to deal with We also held a competition to guess the combined predicted 305 day lactation yields for the class of 6 in milk Jerseys. The actual total was 41,489 kgs Mr Ralph Moore guessed 41550 kgs and Mrs Ann Tomkinson got close at 39,000kgs, not bad! The stock judging was won by Mrs Jane Parfitt a member of the Jersey Club, the runner up was Mr Ronnie Smith a member of the Guernsey Club. Unfortunately the weather was really cold for the time of year and it was disappointing not to have more members (busy time)? 15 members from both clubs attended. We held a small raffle for the RABI and raised £36 which I think was brilliant and thank everyone who brought a raffle prize and also bought tickets.

Our last social function was our Dinner held at the Scole Inn, attended by 25 members and friends, a most enjoyable evening. Our raffle raised £59 for RABI

Congratulations to Louise and Tom Edwards on the birth of their daughter Hannah born on Saturday 21st October, a sister for William.

Let us hope that 2007 will be a healthy, happy and prosperous year.
