In this month's edition

December 2017 issue

The December Journal is themed 'Breeder Achievement's. You will see some of our members' most treasured achievements within their herds, a more in-depth feature on this year's Premier Pedigree Herd winner and the finalists. We will go through a decade of Premier Pedigree Herd winners, as well as featuring the UK's most coveted star brood cow.

Herd features include Curtismill, Bowberhill and Blythbridge, as well as sharing with you the 2017 Genus Long Life Cow Award winner and events from up and down the country.


Future Editions

The February Journal will be all about production, including all aspects such as production and fertility. For this issue, we have an article of the 220 tonne cow, Sterndale Manat Angelique, as well as featuring high production herds, cows and heifers across the UK. The HYB section will include the Australian Exchange diary, a report from Cremona and all of the action from the recent President's Medal winners' trip to Canada.

And not forgetting, the 2017 All-Britain nominations.
