Howard Sneesby Award Presented to Holstein UK CEO

The winner of this year’s Howard Sneesby award is Holstein UK CEO Sue Cope who was presented the award for her enormous contribution towards the National Holstein Show over many years. The award recognises an individual who has made a significant difference to others through their support of the National Holstein Show, and Holstein UK’s Show and Sale Committee determined that Sue would be a very worthy winner.

Having been a member of Holstein Young Members in her early years, Sue’s achievements included winning the prestigious Presidents Medal and she has spent many years showing with her dad and brother under the Huddlesford prefix. Sue began working for Holstein UK in 1995 and throughout her career, she has worked across a variety of roles. Sue has been heavily involved with UK Dairy Day since its inception and has been Event Director for the past seven years. Her commitment to the National Holstein Show has enabled a showcase of world-class Holstein genetics on a global platform.

Michael Smale, Holstein UK Chairman, commented “I am delighted to present the Howard Sneesby Award to Sue Cope. Sue is an integral part of the National Show which wouldn’t be possible without all of the hard work she does behind the scenes.”
