There were over 400 calves at the event and 100 in the Jersey section so the competition was tough.

The club is the first club to have a team representing them in the Jersey section but undoubtedly we have started something that others will follow. The team was very successful and came third in the coloured breeds stand competition, and all individuals did extremely well in both the handling and the calf classes. With a lot of help and support from the club members the weekend was a great success.

Farm Walk - Sunday 13th June 2010

The Lakes club held their Annual Farm Walk at Tom Savage & Sheila Fleming's Laitha Farm, Appleby on a lovely sunny day, Tom welcomed around 60 members after telling us about the farm and cows, he informed us that he and Sheila had made the decision to sell the cows and said members of the club Geoff & Deb Pye, Arkholme had bought them, they were keeping the young stock.

Tom and Sheila will be a big miss in the Jersey World as they have always been so enthusiastic to premote the Breed.

After a really enjoyable day John Chester thanked Tom and Sheila for the lovely refreshments and wished them all well in their retirement.
