Club Notes – Winter 2020

The Coronavirus pandemic has had a big impact in club activities over the course of 2020. The usual field evening held each year couldn’t go ahead. The local shows of Charleville, Newcastlewest, Cappamore and Limerick were also a loss from the local calendar.

However we could run a herds competition. Our herds competition as always was kindly sponsored by Roches feeds. It was held during the middle of the summer when Coronavirus restrictions were somewhat relaxed. It was decided to run the herds competition based on the usual milk recording and instead of an inspection the classification results for members were used. We also added a  Milk Quality section where herds’ TBCs and SCCs were examined. Well done to Jim and Seamus Kelly for winning both sections. Run in conjunction with this Mervyn Kearney agreed to socially distance visit farms to inspect animals. On each farm Mervyn inspected 3 milking heifers 3 junior cows and 3 senior cows. The champion cow from this competition was Mike & Liz McNamara’s Woodmarsh Cancun Lyme 2. The results from this competition and from the herds competition are below.

We will be in touch in the coming weeks with the prize winners about getting their awards to them. We had hoped to be running an awards night but this is looking unlikely due to the current restrictions. A big thanks goes to Mervyn from the club, this competition resembled the only activity that was close to normal in a very abnormal year.
