South Wales De Cymru Herd Competition 2017

Judge: Mr Seimon Thomas

An entry of five herds was led once again by the Glanmor herd of Dafydd, Helen and Tanwen Cox. Their herd of 140 milkers based at Laugharne also took honours for best bull, cow, senior bull progeny, youngstock and production inspection.

Other awards were shared equally with Elan Thomas’ Clarity herd at Meidrim the best new entrant and the senior maiden heifer trophy. Ioan Harries took honours for the best Dam and Daughter with Gwenlas GG Florence and her yearling daughter. His Felin herd stood second in several of the other sections.

Winning heifer and awarded the Judges prize for the best and most promising animal viewed throughout the competition was Carwyn Valentino Ophelia from the Griffiths family at Maenclochog. It is unfortunate that due to TB restrictions this animal is unlikely to enter the show ring this season.

Junior bull progeny winners were a group of Gatrog Scoobie Doo daughters, bred in the Chapel herd of the Batchelor family at Castlemartin, with the Carpenter family’s Carps Windigo Poppy the best junior yearling.
