Club Notes – Winter 2021

The Kildare club held our first event of 2021 in late June this year, namely the FBD Herds competition. It was great to be back in the swing of things. It was a very successful and enjoyable competition with a high number of entries and with a very high standard of stock in all sections. Our judges, Mervyn Eager, Chris Mullaly and Trevor Hanley had a very pleasant week inspecting all the herds. Our sincere thanks to them for giving up their time.

These results were announced and the presentation of prizes took place later in the year at our Field evening hosted by Larry Hannon & family, Balitore w hich took place on 24th August. We had a great turn out and a lovely evening, thanks to our sponsor Progressive Genetics. Everyone on the night enjoyed catching up after a long 2 years wait. Even the weather obliged with lovely sunny evening. A presentation was made on the night to Chris O’Meara for his years of service as a milk recorder throughout Kildare. Thanks to Chris for all your work.

Our annual Silage Competition ran in September with results still to be announced. 

Looking forward to getting back to our normal activities in 2022.
