South Wales Jerseys De Cymru
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.
