Holstein UK, the organisers of UK Dairy Day which is the home to The National Holstein Show, is delighted to announce the official show judge for 2018. Mick Gould of the worldwide recognised Woodmarsh Herd of pedigree Holsteins, at Grange Farm near Shrewsbury, Shropshire, is this year’s chosen judge to oversee the Holstein category.
HYB member Heather Martin has arrived down-under for the HYB Australian Exchange. So far, Heather has been involved with Youth Week and was even selected to judge the novelty category.
Drum roll… Holstein UK crowned the champion of its prestigious 2017 President’s Medal Award last night. Helen Eastham from Lancashire has claimed the title, and has won an engraved medal and a trip to the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto, kindly funded by HYB’s principal sponsor, Semex, later this year. Congratulations also goes to runners up Tom Lomas (Western) and Lucy Taylor (Staffordshire).
Molly Westwood of Panda Holsteins has been announced as winner of the Young Farmer of the Year at the 2017 Food & Farming Industry Awards.
Following the outstanding success of the 2017 Australian Exchange, Holstein Young Breeders (HYB) is thrilled to announce its fortunate travel candidate for 2018, as the trip returns for another exciting year.
