Milk Production Competition
There was an almost clean sweep for the Grey familys Killadeas Herd based near Enniskillen and famous for their Tickety Moo ice cream. They took all 10 places in the cow section and 9 of the 10 in the heifer section.
As the table shows they are achieving phenomenal production of high yields combined with excellent fat and protein.
Annual Charity Table Quiz and Charity Auction
A light-hearted but spirited contest was enjoyed by all with a team led by RUAS President John Kelly coming out on top. After supper the auction got into full swing with guest auctioneer Willie Wilson selling such diverse lots as children's bikes and duck eggs. At the end of the evening the impressive sum of £740 had been raised for this years chosen charity Project Zip.
The Ulster Jersey Cattle Club would like to thank all those who supported this event either by their attendance on the night or by donating items for the auction.
