At this year's UK Dairy Day (12th September 2018), congratulations went to Yasmin Bradbury and Bill Nadin of the Sterndale and Peak prefixes based in Derbyshire, who were presented with the Holstein UK Howard Sneesby Memorial Trophy. 

The Award recognises those members who have made a significant difference to others through constant support and encouragement. For over 15 years, Yasmin and Bill’s farming partnership has built a wealth of breeding and cowmanship knowledge and experience, supported with a passion for showing. Ten years ago, they showed at the National Show with 18 animals and one was placed in the top six.  Today, you cannot believe that this partnership would attend a show and not be in contention of winning a championship! Whether they achieve success in the show ring or not, Yasmin and Bill genuinely care about encouraging new exhibitors and their support of fellow breeders is exemplary.
