Southern Jersey Cattle Club

Club Notes 2014

The Southern Jersey Cattle Club started the year in February participating in a Quiz with the Holstein South & Wiltshire Club. We managed to rustle up a couple of teams and did not disgrace ourselves too much, primarily thanks to our youngest participant, Zoe Clear!

In April we met for our Annual General Meeting and Dinner at the West Grange Hotel, Nr Newbury. We were pleased to welcome Mr & Mrs John Whitby. John had kindly accepted our invitation to be our speaker for the evening. His most interesting talk covered details of his farming enterprise as well as updating members on Society matters particularly relating to the changes on the Board of UK Jerseys.

Our grateful thanks go to Charles and Frances Reader for hosting Club members for a herd visit to Barnowl Jerseys in June and also for providing a delicious lunch.

Richard Saxby very ably judged our Five Counties Herd Competition in July. Exhibitors were pleased to show him their herds and were very appreciative of the interest he showed in their breeding and businesses. The first prize winners are listed below:-

To end the year in early December we held our Christmas Lunch and presented the trophies to our Herd Competition winners.

On a very, very sad note our friend and Club President, John Notley, passed away at the end of January 2015. His never failing good humour and enthusiasm for the Jersey breed will be sadly missed.
