Ulster Jersey Cattle Club

2008 Annual Herds Competition

The Ulster Jersey Cattle Club’s annual Herds Competition took place on Tuesday and Wednesday the 23rd and 24th September. Judging was in the capable hands of the Jersey Cattle Society Chairman, Peter Prior of Designer Jerseys in Essex.

Visiting herds form Kilrea in the North to Seaforde in the South and from Bangor in the East to Enniskillen in the West Peter had the chance to see much of Northern Ireland and was fortunate to enjoy the only good weather we have seen for months. At a dinner in the Chestnut Lodge, Moira on the final evening Mr Prior thanked the UJCC for the opportunity of judging the competition. He complimented the breeders on the quality of their herds being particularly impressed by the numbers of high yielding and older animals he had seen.

Before announcing the results he congratulated the Fleming Family whose Potterswalls herd have retained the National Herds Inspection Championship for the third successive time. The National Competition results had been announced the previous week at the Dairy Farming Event at Stoneleigh.

It was therefore no surprise that the Potterswalls Herd featured strongly in the Northern Ireland results.

The Ulster Jersey Cattle Club is indebted to John Thompson & Son for their continued sponsorship of this competition.
