Crossnacole to host National Holstein Friesian Open Day
The IHFA National Holstein Friesian Open Day is taking place on Thursday 6th of July 2017 and will be hosted by Victor Jackson, Crossnacole Holsteins, Kiltegan Co Wicklow. This year will be the 25th anniversary of the Open Day and it will be a great honour to go back again and visit the first ever host of the Open Day.
The Crossnacole prefix was registered with HUKI in the early ‘80s. Victor farmed in partnership with his late father Charles. His brother Dermot farms in his own right with the registered “Borkilbeg” prefix. Victor’s brother Eric runs a suckler beef herd and breeds pedigree Simmentals under the prefix Slaneyview. He is also well known on the show circuit.
The herd was built on initial purchases from renowned cow families across the country and Northern Ireland as well as grading up the best cow families in the existing commercial herd.
