Future Editions

October 2018 issue

In the October Journal, you can read about the highlights from UK Dairy Day and learn more about the Relough and Crossfell herds. With a focus on UK breeding, this edition will provide an oversight of the traits most used by UK breeders to influence bulls and how we can get the most out of using PLI for UK breeding. With the Journal being printed ahead of the All Breeds All Britain Calf Show, we find out more about the Judges and what they are looking forward to seeing in the calf rings.
