Club Notes – Winter 2021
The biggest event of the year was when 25 club members travelled to West Cork and stayed for 3 days visiting 7 farms.
Each host farmer had their own life story on how they achieved what they have and how they built up such fine herds of cows. They were all so welcoming to us and provided wonderful hospitality. I would like to thank each of them so much.
