Following the Treasurer’s report from Elizabeth Croskery John Henning from the evenings sponsor the Northern Bank conducted the election of office bearers for 2009. The new Chairman is Albert Lowry, Loughgiel. Mark Logan adds the role of Vice Chairman to that of Secretary with Elizabeth Croskery continuing as Treasurer. The newly elected committee members are Tom Martin, Moira, William Kerr, Cloughmills and Daniel Brady, Ballymoney. The club silverware was then presented by Mr Henning who thanked the club for inviting him along and congratulated all prize winners.
A very interesting talk by Richard Saxby rounded off the evening. Club members enjoyed hearing Richard’s progress from milking cows at weekends to spells with the noted Osberton and Ravenfield herds. All this time he was building up a small herd of his own which were milked in partnership with his employers. Today he is farming a tenanted farm in the Yorkshire Dales although he is the first to admit that in the current economic climate times are tough! As a sales rep for Jisex he also gave us an insight into some of the bulls he has used in the past and those available today. His impressions of the North American Jersey, the Louisville Jersey Show and Toronto Winter Fair also proved interesting.
