2020 has definitely been a year we will all remember and one which will go down in history. We had some exceptional herds entered into this years Summer Herds Competition. Once again, the club put forward some outstanding cattle for our experienced and respected judges, Malcolm & Jean Hutchinson Bowerberhill prefix. Three days of full on judging took place with 15 members taking part in the competition and the Holstein Young Breeders excelled themselves once again with quality and enthusiasm, making the judges decisions extremely difficult. A huge thank you to our sponsors Lely Longtown and Lloyd Tractors.

With the absence of shows, the Devon Club was lucky enough to be able to organise their summer Herd Competition, complying with COVID-19 restrictions. Judge Dennis Smith (Oakroyal), 2018's Premier Herd Winner, made the following comments: "We had two serious herds in 1st and 2nd, with the winning herd winning on its level of quality throughout and carrying no passengers. The herd in 2nd had some serious cows but also had the best group of heifers in the whole competition".

The 2020 Shropshire Herd Competition was judged by Mr Blaise Tomlinson. Blaise came expecting to see some great herds and cows but he was blown away by the standard of cows and presentation of  every herd that he visited. He was extremely impressed and found animals on every farm that he wished he could take home. He found it very difficult to place each of the 20 herds represented, as the standard put before him was so high, and wants to congratulate every member who entered and wish you all continued success.
