Club Notes – Winter 2017
Tipperary and Watherford club had a very good year. We had 2 stock judging evenings. The first one was in Belmount in County Waterford where there was great cows for judging. We would like to express our thanks to them for opening their farm to the club. The judge on the night was John Watson who did a great job. Thanks The second stock judging night was at Mark McCarthy and family, again great cows for judging .The judge on that night was Jim Mulhall who did a great job, thanks. We would like to thank both herd owners for their hospitality on the nights.
National Herds Competition
The club were delighted with our club member Noel Hennessy who won his section in the National Herds Competition at the IHFA open day in Victor Jacksons. Congratulations Noel and Family
We went on a club trip to Northern Ireland for the Northern Ireland Holstein Celebration 2017 and the election of David Perry as president of HUKI. Best of luck David in your new role. We saw 2 super herds of cows: The Abercorn Herd – the production in that herd 9211 litres @ 4,04% fat and 3.23% Protein and the Simlahill Production 10782kg @3,94% fat 3,21% protein. Big wealthy cows with super udders. The Hospitality was great, a very enjoyable trip. We visited the Giants Causeway and the Dark Hedges where game of thrones was filmed. The trip was enjoyed by all. We have our up coming awards night at end of November and would like to see all club member attend.
New members very welcome to join the club.
