Club Notes – Winter 2021

With 2021 drawing to a close we all look forward to 2022 with great optimism of the possibility of normality being restored to our lives while we live with Covid19. With a good milk price forecasted into the start of next year a slight bit of optimism and encouragement can be taken on board, albeit acutely aware of the fact that all the various inputs necessary to produce this top-quality food product seem to be sky rocketing.

Our club ran a very successful field day on Tadhg Sweeney’s “Frankford Herd” in Kilcormac, Co. Offaly. Thanks to Tadhg and family as fabulous hosts. The quality of stock turned out on the day is a credit to Tadhg and family. A great crowd was in attendance, all complimented the fantastic display of quality Holstein Friesian cows having power, style and full of milk. The Judge was IHFA President PJ Kelly (Rochfort herd). Thanks to PJ for Judging and thanks also to our main sponsors Agri-needs, who were present on the day to meet and chat to members.
