In this month's edition

April 2017 issue

The April Journal is themed ‘Cow Families’ and will be reporting on the Wintersell, Abercorn and Moorshard herds. 

Here you can read about the Farrah, Melody and Rosina cow families, a round up of the BCBC and Semex conferences, the essays of the two President's Medal winners as well as seeing the winners of the 2016 All Britain Awards.

The featured Club is North Eastern, and you can find out more about the Belaw herd and HYB member Stephen Crosier.


Future Editions

In June, the theme is 'Genomics'. You will have your frequently asked questions answered, learn more about genomics at Holstein UK, and read our genomics breeders forum with four members across the UK. There will be herd features from Hennikers, Wiltor and Boghill and Glamour, as well as the Futureproof herd from the Northumbria Club. And that's not all, you can read our Q&A with the owners of the #1 PLI heifer in the UK, and #5 PLI genomic bull in the UK, Prehen, as well as show reports from the Western Spring Show, Celtic Dairy Showcase and Balmoral.
