Farmers Weekly has teamed up with Harper Adams University for a new Beef Focus Farm series. During the next 12 months we will be following suckler beef producer Ian Willison of Warsop Vale, Nottinghamshire, to find out how he achieves and maintains performance in the top 1%.

eef farmers need to focus on improving technical efficiency and reducing fixed costs if they are to stay in business, according to a leading cattle expert. Simon Marsh, beef cattle specialist at Harper Adams University, says too many suckled calf producers are using their Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) money to stay in business. The most recent AHDB Beef and Lamb Stocktake report reveals even average and top-third breeder/ finishing sucker producers are reporting a loss of £304 and £3 a cow, respectively, when fixed and non-cash costs are deducted. The report also shows, for the average producer, the output a cow is £1,032, but variable costs are £485 and fixed costs are £851 a cow – the latter including £415 for labour (paid and unpaid) and rent (imputed and actual). “This is not sustainable,” says Mr Marsh. “Producers need to focus

on improving technical efficiency if they are to avoid using their BPS money to continue in beef production. A decent profit can be made from suckled calf production. “Why overspend on machinery that just depreciates, rusts and burns fuel? Spend money on the best possible genetics with high-index bulls. They will always give an excellent return on investment,” he adds.

BEEF FOCUS FARM CONCEPT

The concept of the Farmers Weekly/ Harper Adams Beef Focus Farm is to identify the top 1% of beef producers whose physical performance data are independently monitored, reported and demonstrated. Mr Marsh says a suckler producer within the top 1% would be operating an easy-care suckler system, which he believes involves:  Having a compact calving pattern  Using hybrid vigour in the breeding programme  Using the top 1-10% index herd

sires with a focus on calving ease, growth and muscle depth EBVs  Calving home-bred replacement heifers at two years old  Maximising use of home-grown feeds and fodder with appropriate body condition score management  Focusing on grassland management and creep feeding. One such producer is Ian Willison, who farms at Williamswood Farm, Warsop Vale, Nottinghamshire. He runs a herd of 75 autumncalving Simmental cross British Blue sucklers. Cows are put to Simmental bulls, with top 1-10% terminal indexes. He uses AI and home-bred sweeper bulls, with a focus on calving ease and growth EBVs. Mr Willison used AI when he milked cows 25 years ago. He says he likes it, as it gives him access to a choice of bulls and allows him to pick genetics to suit the cows. Cows selected to breed herd replacements are put to bulls with excellent maternal traits, with a focus on milk, scrotal size, short gestation length and positive fat depth EBVs. He aims for a calving rate of 101102%, with the Simmental breed more prone to twinning. Because Mr Willison AIs cows, it forces him to use EBV figures. “EBVs are an indication of what a bull’s offspring is likely to do for you – you can’t tell that by just looking at an animal. “Calving ease is paramount and we would be looking for anything with at least a top 10% index for calving ease direct and milk. “We also look for a positive on daughters and scrotal size. It is important to judge the cows as well as the bull, so we have a strict culling-out policy on cows that

The bull calves are intensively finished on maize silage and blend at 13-15 months old and heifer calves not retained for breeding are sold at a premium direct to pedigree breeders as ET recipients. Their high health status aids this, as they are accredited for BVD, IBR and Johne’s. Herd replacements are selected on their ability to “calve and conceive”.

MONITORING PERFORMANCE

Cow and calf performance is independently monitored by Mr Marsh, with a particular focus on the evaluation of the progeny of the sires. The 2014 calf crop was predominantly sired by two Simmental

bulls. Omorga Volvo is a top 5% terminal sire (TI+94) and Starline Decision (TI+60) is regarded as a top maternal sire, but with an index that is only in the top 60% for the breed. Dirnanean Bradley was also used for the 2015 calf crop and is a top 1% bull with a TI of +115, making him a curve-bender bull with positive calving ease figures and massive growth. He was also overall Simmental champion at the Highland Show in 2014, proving you can have a top-index bull that is pleasing to the breeder’s eye. The 2014 calving performance data proves EBVs do work (see table overleaf). Bull calves from Decision (top 60% bull) recorded similar performance to the sweeper bulls, with Volvo (top 5%) recording a much higher daily liveweight gain (DLWG) and 200-day weight com-

pared with Decision. In future articles we will be delving into more detail regarding the calving figures from the 2014 and 2015 calf crop.

CHOICE OF COW BREED

Mr Willison’s preferred choice of cow for the past six years has been a Simmental cross Blue. He uses a mix, as he says it gives him hybrid vigour, with the Simmental cross Blue equally balanced for maternal and terminal traits. Hybrid vigour is particularly important in the cow as this boosts lowly heritable traits such as fertility and health. “The Simmental provides growth, bone structure and milk, while the Blue brings conformation,” he says. Currently, he isn’t looking to introduce a third breed, even though in future Mr Willison may

have to maintain hybrid vigour for the replacements. “At the moment I have no need to add a third breed. If I wanted all calves terminal then I could see the benefit in adding another breed into the mix,” he says. Cow weights are not too extreme, which is helped by calving replacement heifers at 21-24 months old. Average cow liveweight pre-weaning in April this year was 637kg.

SEASON OF CALVING

When it comes to time of year for calving, Mr Willison goes against convention by calving heifers from mid-July and cows mid-August through to October. He picked late summer/early autumn calving as it fits with his grass growth and gives him options whether to calve inside or outdoors. It also means cow nutrition can be

controlled during the critical bulling period, as the cows are indoors from the end of October. “Because we are using AI, autumn calving makes it easier, as the cows are already inside during the bulling period,” he says. Another benefit of autumn calving is that steer and heifer calves can easily be finished by 18-20 months old out of yards rather than 24-28 months, which is typical with most spring-born calves, although Mr Willison finishes his bull calves at 13-15 months. Mr Marsh adds that autumn calving can be just as cost-effective as spring calving. “In recent years we have experienced summers with either drought or monsoon conditions and this can affect fertility in a spring-calving herd. “In addition, it is often ➜p40 9 OCTOBER 2015  FARMERSWEEKLY

SIMMENTAL REVIEW 2015

President’s Message W

ell another year with continued problems within our industry regarding payments and prices and now if all that is not enough, news that farmers/members are being subject to the worst weather conditions seen which is making life even harder for those of you in the affected areas. My first year as President has been memorable and has reminded me of the input the previous and present council members have put in to get us where we are today; my sincere thanks go out to you all. It would be wrong however to try and indicate everything is perfect, we still have animals being taken to society sales when to put it bluntly they should have joined the food chain, as we know a pedigree certificate does not mean the animal should be used in future parentage. We must accept that we need to increase autumn calving especially for Bulls and reduce what is now 65% of registrations taking place between January and May. We continue to support numerous events and thanks to Neil and his staff, the breeds’ profile has been raised with prices and percentages of those sold increasing. The Monitor Farm projects are seen as other ways to promote our breed and the ability of our cattle to finish well with details being printed in the Farmers Weekly of the one at Williamwood Farm in Mansfield over the next 12 months. Further projects in Cumbria are also being looked into. We are looking at classification trials to come up with required linear traits for our breed that will enable FEMALES to receive a percentage score in line with certain other breeds. Finally we will start a process of discussing a possible move from Stoneleigh in that our current tenancy with regards the site we occupy is due for renewal in 2019 and indications are that rents etc. will increase considerably. I, along with all of the present council and office staff will do everything we can to promote our wonderful breed but we need you, the members to continue your support at shows and sales etc. and I thank you for what you have done to date and look forward to meeting you during the forthcoming year.

y first involvement with Pedigree Simmentals was in 1979 on leaving agricultural college. As manager on a local farm I helped set up a new herd although we had been using Simmental bulls on commercial cows before this time. The 25 cow Slievenagh herd was founded at the same time with the purchase of Brookfield Jasmine at the N.I. Club Sale at Balmoral, Belfast, with a few other females added over the years. The herd is managed commercially with the top bulls going to Stirling and the local Club Sales. A limited amount of showing is done mainly by Jamie, assisted by Christopher, when time permits. As we only farm about 70 acres, my main employment is as Stud Manager with A.I. Services (NI) Ltd. In this role, I am responsible for running the bull stud based at Ballycraigy near Belfast, as well as the sourcing and purchase of beef bulls of all breeds for the company. I have been secretary of the N.I. Club for nearly 9 years, but the bulk of this work is done by my wife Darla. Our daughter Emma now lives in Glasgow, and still enjoys coming up to Stirling when we are there. The whole family enjoy being involved with Simmental cattle, and sharing experiences and friendships made over many years.

Council Members SIMON KEY

M

y late father, John, started the herd in 1978 and I’ve been very fortunate to have grown up with Simmentals, going to shows and sales from the day I was born. At the moment the herd has around 40 pedigree Simmental cows with followers. The farm is 200 acres of which 140 are in the Higher Level Scheme, grassland and 60 acres arable, barley, maize, peas. I swap muck for straw with my uncle on his 250 acre arable farm. I also have 80 acres of grassland off neighbouring farms of which I do the contracting. I am 40 years old, married to Claire and have two wonderful daughters called Emiliana and Caitlyn. I love my cows but family comes first (wife doesn’t agree!) Outside of work and home life I love all sports but mainly have played football and cricket to a good standard. I’m very competitive and determined but will always shake hands, smile and have a beer after any game. I’m a hands on person and am involved in football, cricket and pool committees as well as being chairman of the East Anglian Simmental club. I love travelling and at 21 spent a year travelling/ working and playing football in Australia and New Zealand. I went back to Australia for 6 months at 27 years old and look forward to taking my family back again in the future. I have also spent time in Europe and have loved skiing holidays in Canada and America. It’s a huge honour to be a council member and I’m looking forward to the challenges ahead for this wonderful breed.

elcome to the Review 2015, a new look this year with a modern layout which to be fair was

overdue. In the year just gone, we have again seen some considerable successes, an 80% clearance at Stirling in February followed by a record average in October. A new venue at Worcester saw a reasonable clearance for the first attempt, Newark continues to develop and needs to be supported locally, regional strength will breed regional confidence. The Carlisle sale was particularly pleasing selling 28 Bulls the most for many years and the combination with the Leading ladies worked very well indeed and will continue to be developed. The breed itself has been developed tremendously by the breeders to meet the demands of the modern market and is by far the most improved breed in the last 5-10 years. The demands are forever changing and we are fortunate to have a breed that can fit to the ever mobile goalposts created by supermarkets in terms of carcase size etc. I often wonder if the main red meat levy collectors are doing enough to promote beef as part of a staple diet and spending the levy money wisely. Moving forward as a breed we still need to somehow correct the miss-balance in our calving pattern, Autumn sales will slowly diminish then disappear completely unless there is a big swing back to Autumn calving across the UK suckler herd, Bernard Matthews never tried to sell turkeys in July, we need more calves born from August through to October. The needs of Commercial farmers need to be fulfilled by Pedigree breeders, not the other way around. Still not enough breeders visit commercial markets on a regular basis.

012

www.britishsimmental.co.uk

Assessing the viability of classifying the females in our herd will be one of our major projects in 2016, one I believe could bring a lot of benefits to the breed. In the show circuit 2015 was very successful and you will see later on in the interbreed section just how powerful and successful we were at many of the major shows, in particular in conjunction with National Shows, well done to all who participated, your time, efforts and money spent on showing are appreciated. The society invested over 50k in beef events and the independent events we organised in 2015, a breakdown of these follows on the next pages. Whilst you never know the full benefit of these events on the day we know the benefits come to fruition in the coming months and years. Open days are the most successful way of promoting a breed, and we have had tremendous feedback from our projects from Orkney to Nottingham and several in between, the serialisation of our own Monitor Farm in Nottingham in the Farmers Weekly has been one of the highlights of 2015. Moving on into 2016 we have two open days in September, dates will be finalised later, they are by kind permission of Mr R & J Cook, Hillside Home, Ryall, Bridport, Dorset and Mr & Mrs Ward & Sons, West Mains Farm, Newbigging, Carnwath, Lanarkshire, one also in Wales, although this will be in 2017 by kind permission of Mark and Emma Evans, Upper Harglodd, St Davids, Harverfordwest, Pembrokeshire. Wishing you all a healthy, safe and prosperous 2016. Neil Shand

n 2015 we spent more money and attended more events than ever before, and perhaps most importantly organised more stand alone events away from beef events. We started at Gary and Angela Christies, Midtown of Glass, Huntly, Aberdeenshire on the 4th of February. This event was organised by SRUC and the theme was driving efficiencies into livestock farming. Support payments are decreasing and with a need to fill voids there was no better place to showcase the breed and its capabilities. Gary is basically a one man band, calving 130 spring calving Simmental x cows, a small autumn calving pedigree herd and finishing 1000 lambs over the winter. Gary’s data confirms the value of EBVs with his stock bull with the highest 200 day weight producing the heaviest calves at weaning, or “doing what it says on the tin”. There was a long discussion from the 100 or so participants about cow size in the afternoon and this was in the spring before the recent pressures started being put on carcase size/weight. At the end of the day a bigger cow is worth more when it is culled and will calve easier. There are far greater issues with the UK suckler herd and the beef industry in general than trying to reduce the size of the cows.

PROMOTIONAL EVENTS DURING 2015


Our next event was the NBA Beef Event at York Market on the 21st of May. To date it is one of the best NBA events we have attended, footfall was good with a lot of genuine enquiries and also the chance to catch up with some of our commercial supporters from the North Eastern side of the country.

From York on the Thursday we then headed for John Rixons, Lopemede farm, Thame, Oxfordshire on the Saturday 23rd May for a Society - run open day. John and his family are running 200 cows, all spring calving with an emphasis on using polled genetics. The herd really is a credit to John and a clear indication of what can be Hungry visitors get tucked into a beef lunch at Lopemede, the beef was home produced by John and expertly served by the Storersmith team

From Oxford we headed to Perthshire for the Scottish Beef event at Mains of Mause, on the 27th of May in what turned out to be a typical Scottish day in terms of weather, lovely morning and absolutely chucking it down in the afternoon. Following the Mains of Mause we headed further north to the Orkneys. Steven and Lorraine Sandison were the Island’s first monitor farm project funded by QMS/NFUS and ran by SRUC. These projects are common place in the north with a view to share best practice and allow farmers to learn from each other, both good and bad. A small grievance I have with these 3 year projects is that they are always finished before the real fruit of any changes put in place has been harvested, so I was particularly pleased when both the host farmers and the Society Council agreed we could continue this project after its initial conclusion for a minimum of two years. We must especially thank

016

Steven who has been undertaking a Nuffield Scholarship at the same time. The Orkney Islands remain the heaviest populated land mass of cattle anywhere in Europe with 26,500 suckler cows and 19,500 people, with little choice other than to continue with their cattle enterprises regardless of the changes in CAP. If we assume that the whole area is spring calving, the bull requirement in the Spring will be in the region of 660 if each bull is running with 40 cows, that’s a market we must pay a lot of attention too and we regularly see 15-20% of our Stirling Sales heading to the Islands. We held our first meeting on June 3rd, where Steven gave an update on the monitor farm, calving % etc and also the farm accounts, Gary Christie then gave a presentation on calving heifers at 2 years old which fuelled a strong debate. We then went on a tour of the recently turned out cows and calves, followed by a BBQ in the evening.

Participants listening to Gary’s presentation.

In September our focus turned to our very own monitor farm, which hopefully you have all seen being serialised in the Farmer Weekly with support from Simon Marsh from Harper Adams, the story will be serialised in the Farmers weekly every second month for a year. Another first for a breed to have our very own monitor project ran commercially and the results so far have put Ian in the top 1% of suckler producers. The maternal aspects of our breed are untouchable, but the project will show both sides of the breeds capabilities.

eef farmers need to focus on improving technical efficiency and reducing fixed costs if they are to stay in business, according to a leading cattle expert. Simon Marsh, beef cattle specialist at Harper Adams University, says too many suckled calf producers are using their Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) money to stay in business. The most recent AHDB Beef and Lamb Stocktake report reveals even average and top-third breeder/ finishing sucker producers are reporting a loss of £304 and £3 a cow, respectively, when fixed and non-cash costs are deducted. The report also shows, for the average producer, the output a cow is £1,032, but variable costs are £485 and fixed costs are £851 a cow – the latter including £415 for labour (paid and unpaid) and rent (imputed and actual). “This is not sustainable,” says Mr Marsh. “Producers need to focus

38

on improving technical efficiency if they are to avoid using their BPS money to continue in beef production. A decent profit can be made from suckled calf production. “Why overspend on machinery that just depreciates, rusts and burns fuel? Spend money on the best possible genetics with high-index bulls. They will always give an excellent return on investment,” he adds.

BEEF FOCUS FARM CONCEPT

The concept of the Farmers Weekly/ Harper Adams Beef Focus Farm is to identify the top 1% of beef producers whose physical performance data are independently monitored, reported and demonstrated.

One such producer is Ian Willison, who farms at Williamswood Farm, Warsop Vale, Nottinghamshire. He runs a herd of 75 autumncalving Simmental cross British Blue sucklers. Cows are put to Simmental bulls, with top 1-10% terminal indexes. He uses AI and home-bred sweeper bulls, with a focus on calving ease and growth EBVs. Mr Willison used AI when he milked cows 25 years ago. He says he likes it, as it gives him access to a choice of bulls and allows him to pick genetics to suit the cows. Cows selected to breed herd replacements are put to bulls with excellent maternal traits, with a focus on milk, scrotal size, short gestation length and positive fat depth EBVs. He aims for a calving rate of 101102%, with the Simmental breed more prone to twinning. Because Mr Willison AIs cows, it forces him to use EBV figures. “EBVs are an indication of what a bull’s offspring is likely to do for you – you can’t tell that by just looking at an animal. “Calving ease is paramount and we would be looking for anything with at least a top 10% index for calving ease direct and milk. “We also look for a positive on daughters and scrotal size. It is important to judge the cows as well as the bull, so we have a strict culling-out policy on cows that

The bull calves are intensively finished on maize silage and blend at 13-15 months old and heifer calves not retained for breeding are sold at a premium direct to pedigree breeders as ET recipients. Their high health status aids this, as they are accredited for BVD, IBR and Johne’s. Herd replacements are selected on their ability to “calve and conceive”.

Dirnanean Bradley was also used for the 2015 calf crop and is a top 1% bull with a TI of +115, making him a curve-bender bull with positive calving ease figures and massive growth. He was also overall Simmental champion at the Highland Show in 2014, proving you can have a top-index bull that is pleasing to the breeder’s eye. The 2014 calving performance data proves EBVs do work (see table overleaf). Bull calves from Decision (top 60% bull) recorded similar performance to the sweeper bulls, with Volvo (top 5%) recording a much higher daily liveweight gain (DLWG) and 200-day weight com-

pared with Decision. In future articles we will be delving into more detail regarding the calving figures from the 2014 and 2015 calf crop.

CHOICE OF COW BREED

Mr Willison’s preferred choice of cow for the past six years has been a Simmental cross Blue. He uses a mix, as he says it gives him hybrid vigour, with the Simmental cross Blue equally balanced for maternal and terminal traits. Hybrid vigour is particularly important in the cow as this boosts lowly heritable traits such as fertility and health. “The Simmental provides growth, bone structure and milk, while the Blue brings conformation,” he says. Currently, he isn’t looking to introduce a third breed, even though in future Mr Willison may

have to maintain hybrid vigour for the replacements. “At the moment I have no need to add a third breed. If I wanted all calves terminal then I could see the benefit in adding another breed into the mix,” he says. Cow weights are not too extreme, which is helped by calving replacement heifers at 21-24 months old. Average cow liveweight pre-weaning in April this year was 637kg.

SEASON OF CALVING

When it comes to time of year for calving, Mr Willison goes against convention by calving heifers from mid-July and cows mid-August through to October. He picked late summer/early autumn calving as it fits with his grass growth and gives him options whether to calve inside or outdoors. It also means cow nutrition can be

controlled during the critical bulling period, as the cows are indoors from the end of October. “Because we are using AI, autumn calving makes it easier, as the cows are already inside during the bulling period,” he says. Another benefit of autumn calving is that steer and heifer calves can easily be finished by 18-20 months old out of yards rather than 24-28 months, which is typical with most spring-born calves, although Mr Willison finishes his bull calves at 13-15 months. Mr Marsh adds that autumn calving can be just as cost-effective as spring calving. “In recent years we have experienced summers with either drought or monsoon conditions and this can affect fertility in a spring-calving herd. “In addition, it is often ➜p40 9 OCTOBER 2015  FARMERSWEEKLY

stated feed costs a cow are lower for a spring herd, since the cow is dry for the majority of the winter. “However, I would argue that this is not correct in most cases. The majority of spring herds keep their calves for at least a year, so the feed that six- to 12-month-old spring-born calves require equates to the extra silage – and maybe some concentrates – required for an autumn-calving herd.” Once heifers and cows are housed inside in October they are gradually introduced to a winter ration of a home-grown 50:50 grass and high-energy maize silage ration, with no additional concentrates, keeping cow winter feed costs to a minimum. Once indoors, cows and heifers are served, with heifers AI’d over a three-week period and cows over six weeks. A sweeper bull is then used to pick up any not in calf. Anything still not in calf is fattened. Cows are not synchronised before AI’ing, and Mr Willison is able to get 70-75% in calf to AI in the six-week period, with 70% of heifers in the three-week period.

AUTUMN CALVING MANAGEMENT

The aim is to keep cows and heifers at a body condition score of 2.5 throughout the year. Heifers are brought indoors four weeks before they are due to calve in July and fed solely on ad-lib hay. “I don’t want to be hard on heifers, but I also don’t want to feed them silage, which is why I feed hay. I also bring them in a month before calving so they can get used to their surroundings,” he adds. Cows are offered 5-6kg each of straw a day at grass four weeks before calving to help control body condition. When they are brought inside to calve they are offered hay and plain haylage. Cows and heifers are also bolused twice a year with selenium, copper, cobalt and iodine, which Mr Willison says has had a massive influence on calving times. “When we blood-sampled cows we found they had a lack of selenium and copper. Cows are now dilating much better and calves are stronger – last year we only lost one calf,” he says. Cows calve down in yards of 10-15 and are left unless help is needed. He says only one in 10 cows would need assistance. Calves are observed at calving to make sure they have adequate colostrum intake. An emergency supply is kept in the fridge, with intervention only when absolutely needed. Mr Marsh adds: “I can’t stress enough the importance of an early 40

Simon Marsh and adequate intake of colostrum – it is the elixir of life.” After each batch of calves the yards are cleaned out, allowing cows to calve in a clean environment and avoiding infections such as navel ill.

POST-CALVING MANAGEMENT

A day after calving, calves are disbudded, tagged and split into two groups – cow/heifers with bull calves and cows/heifers with heifer calves – to allow creep feed to be tailored. They stay in these groups until weaning. Bull calves are weaned at eight months old (April) and heifers at 10 months (June). Post-calving, heifers and cows are

put back out to grass, before being brought in again with their youngstock in October. Bull calves are offered creep when out in the field and heifer calves are fed 1kg of rearing nuts until Christmas, before going on to maize and grass silage. Bull calves average 1.41kg daily liveweight gain from birth until weaning (minus birthweight) and heifers 1.10kg, with the latter only being fed 47kg of creep. Mr Willison says he is looking for a level growth curve and invests in concentrates during the first few months to get early growth. “The younger the animal, the more efficient it is,” he says.

1. Maximise economies of scale and focus on output. Fixed costs stay the same with more cows. 2. Use easy-care systems – easy calving with low labour requirements. 3. Maximise hybrid vigour and focus on breed improvement – for example, use top 1-10% index sires that have very high growth, muscle scores and are easy calving, so-called “curve benders”. 4. Don’t be afraid to buy “ugly” bulls if their EBV figures are good. Too many buyers are obsessed with pretty-faced bulls with big back sides. Breeding bulls with easy calving, growth, width and depth of body traits and an “extra rib” are needed. The highest priced part of the carcass is the loin, not the head or the back end. 5. Improve herd fertility and block calve. Data from herd surveys show the average calving interval is 399 days. Calving rate is 88.3%, so 80.8 calves are produced for every 100 cows in a calendar year. The target is 95 calves for every 100 cows every 365 days. 6. Home-bred replacements must calve at two years old, unless you have a lot of very cheap forage or have split calving herds and can calve at two-and-a-half years old. 7. Correct cow condition scores especially at bulling. The target is a minimum of 2.5. 8. Improve calf daily liveweight gain and cut slaughter age. The target is to wean a calf at 50% of the cow weight and look at suckler cow efficiency. The target is 50kg-plus 200-day weight for every 100kg cow weight. Earlier slaughter reduces the carbon footprint of beef production. 9. Focus on feed costs and quality and maximise use of home-grown forage. Consider outwintering dry spring-calving cows if you have suitable land. 10. Improve healthcare to cut cow and calf losses. Calves with a disease challenge will not thrive. 11. Focus on marketing. Target either the commodity or niche market and produce beef as efficiently as possible. There are critics of bull beef production and continental breeds, so if native breeds are reared on extensive systems they must obtain significant premiums in the marketplace.

Secrets to producing one calf a cow every year In the second part of the Farmers Weekly/Harper Adams beef focus farm series, we take a look at how Nottinghamshire farmer Ian Willison manages fertility in his herd. Sarah Alderton reports

P

roducing one calf from each cow every year is a priority for beef focus farmer Ian Willison, Williamswood Farm, Nottinghamshire. In his autumn-calving herd, Mr Willison on average rears 98.8 calves out of 100 cows put to the bull with a 11.5-week calving period, compared with an AHDB Beef and Lamb average of 90 calves in 14.3 weeks. He says the secret to successful fertility in his herd lies in attention to detail in all aspects of the system, including:  Feeding  Observing oestrus  Correct AI technique  Good health and quality semen  A strict replacement policy.

CONDITION SCORE AND NUTRITION PRE-MATING

The main herd of Simmental cross Blue cows calve down from midAugust and are usually housed by the end of October in straw yards. Cows are inseminated 12 weeks after calving, meaning housing cows indoors coincides with the start of the bulling period and facilitates the easy use of AI. According to Mr Willison, cow fertility starts eight weeks before calving, with cow condition score and nutrition during this period affecting conception in the next lactation. To ensure cows are in good condition (score 2.5+) at mating, post-calving cows are turned out on Ian Willison uses AI to get the best genetics for his system.

 Lowland 80ha farm, which

includes 40ha of reclaimed open-cast coalfield  Soil type is classified as medium loam over limestone  36ha is in permanent pasture with the rest in leys and 8ha of maize silage to quality aftermath grazing at a stocking rate of one cow to the acre. Ten days before cows are brought in at the end of October, each animal is fed 10-15kg/day of decent-quality grass silage (30% DM, 10.1ME) rising to 25kg just before they are brought in. This is to ensure cows are cycling with strong heats and a stress-free transition from grass to indoors. Once inside, feeding is based on a 50:50 mix of ad-lib grass silage and good-quality 29% DM, 33% starch maize silage to provide 140MJ of ME. On average, Mr Willison says cows will be eating 45kg/day. Feeding maize silage means Mr Willison can avoid feeding concentrates. This differs from most autumn-calving herds, which are typically fed medium-quality grass silage with at least 2-3kg of concentrates until late January, when the cows are in-calf (see table 1 for details of cow diet). The ration when forage is costed at the variable cost of production equates to 41p a cow a day. Silage at full cost of production at £103/t DM costs £1.43 a cow a day. Mr Willison has also found the inclusion of trace elements is critical to getting cows back in calf and for an easier calv-

ing. Cows and heifers are bolused twice a year (June and December) with selenium, copper, cobalt and iodine, after blood-sampling revealed cows had a lack of selenium and copper. This costs £14 a cow.

OESTRUS AND DIY AI

Once cows are cycling, Mr Willison observes oestrus at least three times during the day. He says: “It’s hard to miss them and when they are standing solid, we would be looking to AI them about 12 hours later.” Cows are served for the first six weeks by AI before a sweeper bull is added for a further four weeks. Any cows that don’t conceive in this period are culled. Replacement heifers are only served for six weeks and if they are not in calf during this time they are also culled. Cows are AI’d in a crush and put back with their calf immediately after. Only when a cow is in the crush does Mr Willison remove the semen from the flask, thawing it at 35C for 30sec before inseminating the cow. “I only ever inseminate one cow at a time,” says Mr Willison. “I also never split straws, as I want the optimum amount of semen to go into the cow.” He suggests DIY AI costs about £500 to set up the equipment, together with £450 for a three-day training course. If an AI technician is used instead of DIY, Mr Willison would recommend an on-farm flask to reduce the amount of straws that are exposed to the outside temperature. “It costs me £144/year for Genus to top up the flask,” he adds. His attention to detail is proved by his success rate, with 70% of heifers getting in calf to first service and 70-75% of cows after two services. Mr Willison says he finds heifers easier to get in calf, which he puts down to them being under less

Williamswood Farm, as Mr Willison believes it is not necessary in his autumn-calving herd and conception rates are higher without it. “I can see in some situations it is a must, such as in a spring-calving herd, but it doesn’t save you as much time and work as you would be led to believe. It is not a onetime event. “For example, it takes 10 days to synch cows and in that period you have to handle the heifer three to

four times. In this time we would have served half of our heifers.” Mr Willison’s experience has also found conception rates to be less in synchronised animals. The main problems occur with getting cows pregnant that fail to get in calf to the synchronisation programme. If 40+% don’t get in calf they all come back in oestrus at a similar time, which is too much for a sweeper bull to serve.

AI is allowing Mr Willison to use the best genetics for his system, but for a fraction of the cost of owning a bull. “Cost a cow averages £35-£40/conception as I use 1.25 straws/conception [including cost of keeping straws and the flask].” To put this figure in context, AHDB Beef and Lamb says if a stock bull works for five years and produces 30 calves a year, it results in an annual bull cost per calf produced of £35. These figures are not based on using top-priced bulls. “The biggest cost is what you choose to spend on semen. If you are not prepared to choose a quality bull for your system, then what’s the point?” he asks. Mr Willison says because he is keeping his own replacements, it is important he selects a bull that has both maternal and terminal traits. “We are replacing about 20% a year and we view replacements as an investment. We are as choosy with the cow as we are with the bull. “We would rather give younger animals the chance than running an older cow that is not doing the job. Our culling policy is based on function of the cow,” he says. Straws from maternal Simmental bull Dirnanean Bradley, that was used last winter, cost £40 each, but he was a bull that sold for £22,000. He is a top 1% index curve-bender bull and has excellent terminal as well as maternal EBVs, with +2.0% for calving ease daughters (top 15%) and +8kg for milk (top 10%). Further discussion on EBVs for easy calving will feature in a subsequent article in this series. Simon Marsh, beef specialist at Harper Adams University, who is monitoring cow and calf performance at Williamswood Farm, says

Bradley offers the rare combination of easy-calving daughters while maintaining outstanding terminal traits. “His calves have good length without losing width and maintaining strength and top line. The value of his slaughter progeny and production of his daughters will easily cover his semen cost,” he says. Mr Marsh says AI gives Mr Willison the flexibility to change breeds at the flip of a coin, which is useful in a volatile market. “AI allows Mr Willison to maximise production from every animal and also gives him a calving date for every cow. Testimony to his focus on fertility is shown in the results he achieves.” (See table 2.) Mr Marsh advises farmers mating by natural service to fertility test their bulls. “I have lost count of the number of herds I have come across with a widespread calving period because they have an infertile, or subfertile, bull. “Many vets now offer this service. It is relatively quick to carry out and costs in the region of £90 a bull, with subsequent bulls at £60. “I would suggest using a trusted breeder to buy a high-index bull – from a recorded herd – that has not been pushed excessively and has good locomotion. “Also inspect the bull’s mother and any relatives. Make sure the bull is from a herd with high health status to limit disease risk. You get out what you put in, so use the best genetics you can afford,” Mr Marsh says.

WEANING WAYS Suckler producer Ian Willison is hitting weaning weights way above the national average. Michael Priestley finds out how

M

inimising calf stress and optimising the feed conversion ratios (F C Rs) are key to achieving average daily liveweight gains of 1.32kg to weaning for Nottinghamshire farmer Ian Willison. The Simmental cross Blue cows at Williamswood Farm produced progeny this year that averaged 307kg after 200 days – some 48kg above the AHDB Beef and Lamb average of 259kg. He says limiting stress factors and supplying quality feed are vital for realising the genetic potential of stock and counteracting possible growth checks. After some experimentation with outdoor calving following scour issues, Mr Willison opted to return to calving inside, although this time he placed greater focus on cleaning sheds and “getting to the cause of the problem”. Problems with scours and navel-ill are now negligible since daily trailer cleaning and weekly calving shed cleaning regimes were brought in to tackle the problem, rather than relying on treatments. Calves are expected to be standing and suckling within four hours, and then disbudded within 24 hours, although calves slower off the mark are disbudded on day three. Mr Willison finds this is better for the calves and less stressful for him, as he can

disbud on his own. “We are cutting out a growth check and also reducing the risk of pneumonia at that early stage, because they are only very small buds to deal with,” explains Mr Willison. Calves receive 2ml of pain relief – lasting three days – and a pour-on fly treatment before being turned out immediately to grass with cows. Heifers and bulls are segregated at this point to tailor creep feed, which they typically start receiving at six to seven weeks old, removing another stress-point later in life.

CREEPING CALVES

Calves are tempted to switch to creep with an 18% crude protein (CP) calf-rearing pellet before switching to a 17% CP, high-neutral detergent fibre and low-starch (19%) nut to optimise frame development. “Creep nuts are geared towards growing the frame of the animal, meaning we look to use high protein and lower starch. Too much starch and the animal can quickly become fat,” says Mr Willison, who says using a proper calf pellet definitely pays off. “We have tried several feeds for young calves, including mixing barley and sugar beet, but you soon see the benefits of moving to a proper rearing nut.” To hit the top weaning weights,

producers must capitalise on a calf’s phenomenal FCR from birth to weaning (typically ranging from 2.54.5:1), according to Harper Adams University beef specialist Simon Marsh. From studies and observations, he believes many suckler enterprises are restricting the potential of their calves. He says farmers should target daily liveweight gains of 1.2-1.35kg for heifers and bulls. He prescribes high ME (more than 12.5 MJ/kg DM) creep feeds to tap into the potential FCR of pre-weaned calves and says Mr Willison is right to target protein at bulls. Ideally, Mr Marsh likes to see creep contain high levels of bypass digest-

ible undegradable protein, which passes through the rumen, directly supporting growth, which soya bean meal can provide. Mr Marsh says feeding 100-120kg of creep up to weaning increases weaning weights by at least 30kg a calf, which at £200/t (£24/120kg) and a liveweight gain value of £2.50/ kg gives a return of more than £50 a calf. Last winter, Mr Willison’s heifer creep intakes were 49kg and bulls took 289kg up to weaning. Bulls are fed creep ad-lib, with heifers receiving up to 1kg/day until 100 days of age. Bulls are then introduced to their fat ration (50:50 maize silage and barley blend) two weeks prior to weaning, while heifers are introduced to their 50:50 maize and grass silage ration after 100 days, which they take alongside the cows, usually after Christmas. Home-grown maize supplies the ration, with grass silage used for bulls only if it hits targets of 65-70 D-values, 10-12% protein and DM in the high 20s.

HEALTH AND HOUSING

Health also plays a big part in calves achieving targets. For five years Mr Willison’s herd has been accredited for Johne’s, leptospirosis, bovine viral diarrhoea and infectious bovine rhinotracheitis, which he believes has “massively reduced” mortality rates and illnesses.

Another important factor is keeping a closed herd. Mr Willison’s view is that foster calves from outside never bring profit and often bring problems. Instead, he believes cows that have lost calves are better off being sold as culls. November sees cows and calves brought inside, where they access outyards, stemming from Mr Willison’s philosophy that “it’s wrong if you have to trim their backs”. “Sheds are mostly for our benefit. It’s important to keep cattle dry, but the cold is not an issue,” says Mr Willison. “They are better off outside.” His mantra is “plenty of fresh air, plenty of cattle”, putting emphasis on the stack effect caused by large groups of animals creating heat and pulling in fresh air from the outside when wind speeds drop. Straw can be added to keep cattle happy through wintry spells, but he says clipped backs are a sign that ventilation is poor. He adds: “We have only treated one calf this year for a respiratorytype condition and it is now fine. Using outyards has been a massive help with respiratory concerns.”

and grow fast. The first thing on his mind when analysing EBVs is direct calving ease, with bulls also being required to supply decent growth and muscle characteristics. A close second is gestation length for calving and milk, with a good positive figure for daughter calving ease also a high priority. But it is his focus across health, breeding and nutrition that allows Mr Willison’s bulls to achieve daily liveweight gain of 1.49kg, according to Mr Marsh. And he believes creep feeding over the stress of weaning is a “no-brainer”. “Creep feeding minimises stress and growth check post-weaning. Can anyone justify not feeding creep?” asks Mr Marsh, who recommends feeding 14-17% CP. Fine-tuning should involve targeting 16-17% CP at continental calves and 14-15% for native breeds or heifers, with Mr Marsh warning against feeding high starch levels. “High-ME feeds based on digestible fibre with lower starch levels encourage calf frame development, rather than putting on flesh, which is particularly important for heifers” explains Mr Marsh.

WEANING

Mr Willison finds the best approach to weaning is “the quicker the better”, with heifers weaned in midJune and bulls weaned in April. “Prior to weaning, cow rations are changed from maize and grass silage to hay for three days to help them dry off and encourage creep intake,” adds Mr Marsh. “Having the cows at pasture is better for mastitis risk. “Beef cow milk typically has about 3.4% protein as fed, which equates to about 25% on a DM basis. However, yield peaks in weeks six to eight, so milk forms a smaller proportion of calf nutrient intake. Therefore feeding calf nuts supplies the protein needed for muscle and frame development.” 15 JANUARY 2016  FARMERSWEEKLY

We then moved onto the winter events, starting with the EXPO at Carlisle, one of my favourite events of the year, free to enter and always guaranteed a large crowd regardless of the weather. Cattle were provide by Ian Willison from our monitor farm and from Barlow Brothers. From the EXPO at Carlisle our next event was the NBA South West Beef Event at Exeter, this used to be a bi-annual event but they have changed it to an annual event which in my opinion is too often for quite a small event. That said the footfall was reasonable and the stand quite busy especially in the afternoon. I must mention an idea the SW Club had which nearly paid off, one of their members purchased two Simmy x steers with a view to having them finished for the stand, whilst it didn’t quite work out this time, credit must be given for the proactive approach. We had a tremendous bull on the stand from the Hawkeys in Cornwall.

Next stop was Bingley Hall for the English Winter Fair, which for the second year running held a very successful calf show in conjunction with the main event, although there were some teething problems nothing that cannot be sorted. The stand as ever was ably manned by the Midlands Club and was extremely busy with cattle again provided by Ian Willison.

One final event was left for 2015, the second of our meetings at the Orkney Monitor Farm courtesy of Steven and Lorraine Sandison. We put on a tremendous variety of Speakers- Willie Thompson- Technical Director at Harbro, Liz Flett- Vet, Iain Green- Corskie Farm and Steven spoke about the latest performance of the monitor farm.

Different cattle and age ranges All in all 2015 was an extremely busy year and also included the first meeting in August of the project with the Cumbrian Farmer Network, this project will be more active in 2016 with two meetings already arranged in 2016, one in January and another in February. Part of the project included measuring the growth performance of cattle on hill and in-bye grass. Below you can see some of the early results from the first trials. Â

Many of these events include support from local clubs for which myself and the Society are extremely thankful and in particular we need to thank all those that have provided cattle during 2015:- Ian Willison, Williamwood Farm, Warsop Vale, Mansfield, Nottinghamshire. Barlow Brothers, Four Oaks, Ulnes Walton Lane, Nr Leyland, Lancashire. Mr & Mrs Hawkey, Sowenna, Higher Tregolls, St. Wenn, Bodmin Cornwall & Aled Davies, Wern Villa, Ponthirwaun, Cardigan, Ceredigion.

Thanks must also go to:- Steven & Lorraine Sandison, Millburn Farm, Harray, Orkney. Ian Willison, Williamwood Farm, Warsop Vale, Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, Gary & Angela Christie, Birchfield, Glass, Huntly, Aberdeenshire and John Rixon & Family, Lopemede Farm, Thame, Oxfordshire for giving us their time and allowing us to use their farms for our open days.

Then it was off to Wales for the Welsh Winter Fair, another event which pulls a huge audience and it is not free to enter! The stand was supported as ever by the Welsh Club with a couple of young bulls on show from Aled Davies, and included a guess the weight competition raising several hundred pounds for the Welsh Air Ambulance. We were judged to have the second best Breed Society Stand.


WILLIAMS HERD

“From farm gate to dinner plate” By Neil Shand

A

ndrew, Hayley and son William Clarke have a vast understanding of the Beef industry and with the most recent addition of a butchers shop are now involved in the complete chain from production to dinner plate. Williams Livestock Ltd was started in 2007 with the purchase of two heifers from John Carter which were initially a surprise purchase by Andrew for Hayley and when they appeared at the Royal Norfolk Show exhibited in Hayley’s name this was the first Hayley knew anything about them. These were quickly followed by additions purchased from John Key and a heifer Tillymaud Malvenas 53rd who stood Champion at Perth. Several other females were purchased, most notably from the Hockenhull dispersal and privately from Boddingtons Estates. Heathbrow Tristar was purchased privately from David and Lesley Sapsed and to date has had a major influence

on the herd. The cattle became a major interest for Hayley following a serious riding accident in 2008 where she was forced to retire completely from equine competitions. The cattle enterprise had just started and were in place to allow Hayley to continue her interest in breeding and bloodlines. Andrew supports the business at evenings and weekends, running a local abattoir during the week. William, although only nine is becoming very interested in the cattle side of the business and has a natural flare for machinery. Cow numbers now total 34 with 32 cows due to start calving from mid-January onwards, Andrew and Hayley have one eye on the show season for calving but are predominately targeting sales in order to maximise their financial returns. Significant success has been achieved on the sales circuit to date with Williams Eddie being sold for 12000gns at Stirling in October 2014.

The herd is a member of the SRUC PCHS and is accredited for all 4 diseases, herd health is a major factor when buying in stock. Other successes have come at both Newark and Carlisle, their focus remains on the commercial market and continued improvement of their herd. Tough decisions are made early and cattle that will not make the grade for breeding are culled out - the new butchers shop allowing them to fully utilise their own produce from now on. Andrew is Managing Director of the family owned abattoir H G Blake (Costessey) Ltd, one of the few remaining family run abattoirs in the Country. The plant is diverse and kills 220 cattle, 800 lambs and approx 2500 pigs on a weekly basis. Plans are at an early stage to expand the business and increase the throughput. Our YM will visit the plant this year to judge cattle on the hoof and on the hook. The addition of IMPSON butchers shop in Swaffam

last year became the next logical step, Andrew’s parents already run a farm shop/butchery close to Andrew and Hayley’s Farm. The new shop is a longstanding business in Swaffam which employs 10 full time staff. It gives Andrew and Hayley the best return possible on cattle that don’t make the grade. Throughput on a weekly basis is approximately 2 cattle, 8 lambs and 14 pigs. Future plans include the expansion of the deli counter and possibly expansion in to hot food service at lunchtime. Notable success has also been found in the Show Ring including Supreme Champion at the Royal Welsh Show and twice winning the coveted Coleman Cup at Royal Norfolk. The Show circuit is used as promotion of their cattle and sales have occurred at shows which require major commitment in the summer time. The future looks bright for this dynamic business, Hayley and Andrew have their fingers on the pulse and have a clear vision for the future.

Postcard from

AMERICA

Scottish Simmental breeder, Neil McGowan, is on a Nuffield Farming Scholarship looking at ‘Innovation in Cattle Breeding’. He sent an update on his travels from the United States of America.

W

ith 110,000 registrations, the American Simmental Association (ASA) is a force to be reckoned with! That places them behind Angus, and about level with Hereford as No.2 breed in the US. About 50% of those are purebreds (that’s 7/8ths and up), and the other half are composites (that’s 50% or more Simmental).  Then there are what we would call ‘pure’ Simmentals, the fullbloods - which account for less than 1%. American Simmentals are not what we would recognise as Simmentals, but what breeders are producing is a very relevant cow.  It seems to me that the Angus is a pretty good cow for America - but the undisputed king of the feedlot is the Angus steer.  They have the branding (and the marbling to back it up), and absolutely suit the feedlot system.  But while the Angus breed has been courting the feedlot, the Simmental cow has come along and picked up the crown of the range. US MARC data shows that Angus mature weights have risen in tandem with carcase weights, at the same time as the Simmental cow has reduced in size. The Simmental now has a mature weight 15% smaller than Angus, and is even a smaller cow to keep than Hereford.  Wade Shaffer, ASA Chief Executive, says this change was driven by EBVs - the American Simmental now has better growth than they did when they had the taller cattle of the ‘80s, even though cows have a much lower maintenance requirement.  The ASA has used an All Purpose Index (API), for 10 years.  It is an economic index balanced between cow/calf producer, feedlot and packer: so yield, quality grade and growth come in to it, as does feed intake.  For the cow/calf producer point

032

of view survivability x wean weight is the output from which you subtract cowherd intake (which is mature size and milk – more milk means a higher feed-demand).  Stayability (the probability of daughters staying in the herd) trumps all, however - emphasising how important it is for a heifer, once she has been selected into the herd, to pay off her rearing costs over a larger number of calves sold. There was a low growth but nice type Simmental bull around about the time API started, but his poor growth figures meant he wasn’t used much. The index rocketed him to the top of the class, as it highlighted his EBVs were off-the-chart in all other traits - calving ease, daughters calving ease, birthweight, milk, carcase yield, marbling, shear-force (tenderness) and stayability.  Now, in the API era, he is a world renowned sire. Born 15 years ago, this heterozygous black and homozygous polled bull is still at the top of the breed on index. His name? Hooks Shear Force.  Are his genetics available in the UK?  Sure - he’s been used really heavily in the Stabiliser. Although most of the feed intake figures used in the index are from predictions (milk and mature weight, weights, and body composition, account for 80% of intake variation), the ASA is making in-roads to measure intake more accurately. The Carcase Merit Program uses 50 breedernominated young bulls by AI across particular commercial herds each year, with 6-700 progeny followed up right through to slaughter. Carcase data is used to increase accuracy of EBVs, and individual animal feed intake measurements on some of these cattle have been used as a training population for genomic predictions for feed efficiency that can be used breed-wide.

Wish you were here , Neil McGowan

P.S. It ’s a Small World:

My great-grandfather, Walter Biggar, judged the Chicago Winter Fair thirteen times between the 1920s and 1946 – the final time, he was inducted into the American cattle-breeders hall of fame – in that his portrait was hung in the ‘Saddle and Sirloin Club’. This year, for the first time a Simmental breeder will be inducted - Dave Nichols. Quite by coincidence I visited him on my trip – and by coincidence he bred the sire of the Hooks Shearforce bull. Nichols Farms, Iowa sells just short of 600 bulls a year – Simmental, Angus and Composites. His enthusiasm for breeding the right sort of cattle and using the best tools available to help him meet his motto was an inspiration to me, and I am sure is the reason for his honour. His motto – ‘Sell the bull the customer needs, not the one he wants’.


CONGRESS I

travelled to Thun in Switzerland on the 17th of April 2015 for the the European part of the World/ Euro Simmental Congress. Two local suckler herds were visited on Friday. They were small and the cattle would not have been as beefy as in the UK but were more suited to the mountainous terrain some of which was near vertical and was more than 1000 metres above sea level. Switzerland is not in the EU and the farms were receiving €3000/ ha in subsidies as a way of keeping people farming in the mountains so that the alpine meadows are grazed, which is necessary for the tourism and skiing industry. Most farms have another source of income. Friday evening was spent at a mountain restaurant 2,700 metres above sea level which was reached by a funicular railway and incidentally the world’s longest set of steps, 11,600 of them! We were entertained to an excellent traditional Swiss meal and local music such as the alpine horn and yodelling. The European Congress started the next morning and was attended by delegates from over 20 countries including Canada, Colombia and Australia. After the minutes and accounts were passed there were presentations from Poland, who will host next year’s World Congress and Turkey who will host the next European meeting. A series of papers were then presented mostly based on the dairy end of the breed with a lot of time spent on genomic research. This is not surprising as a survey of registrations had 9.6 million dairy registrations and 0.6 million beef

registrations. Interestingly only 10% of the Swiss dairy herd is now pure Simmental. A paper was then presented by Mathias Gerber who coordinates beef advice and marketing for all breeds in Switzerland. They have developed higher value premium markets for their suckler bred beef with some slaughtered at 5 ½ months for veal and others at 10 months weighing around 300kg. There were strict rules on feeding and welfare with, for instance, no soya allowed. The Germans also showed how they had developed a lucrative contract with McDonalds who now sell Simmental burgers much like the Angus scheme here which has created a huge demand for beef Simmentals in Germany. That evening there was a show of dairy Simmentals with each farmer showing a selection from their farm. Sunday brought the main beef event, the Swiss Open at Brunegg which had classes for all the main breeds. There were about 50 Simmentals, and the top end were of a reasonable quality. They were judged by Gerard Brickley from Southern Ireland. The Champion bull and female were both by an eastern German bull called Cuba. There is a growing interest in the beef type Simmental such as is bred here in the UK and there are some very keen , active breeders in Switzerland who are now looking towards us for new genetics. It was wonderful opportunity to go to Switzerland especially to the Simmen valley where the breed originated and I met breeders from all over the world which has made me aware of the versatility and diversity of Simmental cattle. It is important for the British Society to form relationships with other countries as at some stage their genetics may be of use to us or ours to them. I would like to thank the Swiss society for their hospitality and the excellent congress which they organised. Michael Robson

What is the risk in taking semen from stock bull in Risk Level 3 or 4 herd?

BVD Tag Test – PCR v ELISA an explanation of quality

Johne’s disease is mainly spread from the contaminated faeces of infected animals being ingested by uninfected animals. The second most important way new infections occur is directly from mother to calf in the womb or through milk. Other routes of infection are much less important, but these routes need to be considered when putting together a health plan to control Johne’s disease. So the question is what role does an infected bull play in spreading infection? As with all infected animals as the disease progresses he will shed the infection in his faeces. By the time he tests positive in the blood he may be starting to shed the organism in his semen and at mating he may therefore introduce infection into the vagina of the cows he serves. Now it is not known to what extent bacteria present in the semen will be drawn along with the spermatozoa through the

BVD virus testing: Which system is best?

cervix, but this clearly happens with some bacteria. The Johne’s organism is a particularly boring bacterium. It doesn’t move or produce anything that aids the penetration of the lining of the reproductive tract. It is reasonable to expect that very few Johne’s organisms get taken into the uterus. And for any that make the journey the clean up that takes place naturally in the uterus in the course of the normal cycles is likely to send it back out again. The conclusion is that infection from an infected bull through natural mating may be possible, but it is very unlikely. The risk may be higher for artificial insemination, but this is not really known. However because the animal may be infectious through its faeces the best advice is to remove stock bulls from the herd when they test positive and to ensure that semen is not collected from bulls known to be positive for Johne’s disease.

There has been a lot of experience gathered right across Europe in the different national BVD eradication programmes. We now know that of the tests used to detect the virus in blood or tissue the PCR test for the genetic material of the virus is slightly more able to detect positives that the antigen ELISA. The scale of this difference is slight. For example the PCR will detect 99.9% of virus positives when either tissue or blood is used (that is one in one thousand of true virus positives will be missed. For the BVD antigen the figure is 98% (or two in every hundred of true positives missed). We have selected the PCR test as our test of choice and we will use that on samples whenever possible. Other considerations are that the material in the samples for the PCR test is less likely to degrade in adverse conditions. High environmental temperatures will lead to even more false negative results (missing virus positives) when the BVD antigen ELISA is used. When you tag calves you should then store the samples in a cool place and post to the lab at no more than two week intervals. Finally we use automated systems where the bar code on the tissue tag is scanned and the tags are opened and processed in a robotic system, minimising the opportunity for human error that tends to creep in when doing large numbers of repetitive tests. We believe we have taken every action necessary to provide you with the best most reliable testing system for the detection of BVD virus positive animals.

CHeCS accreditation through BVD tissue sampling The calf virus test is an alternative to the check test that can be used to gain BVD accreditation. This is particularly useful in herds that sell the majority of their calves before six months of age. If you choose this route for accreditation then all calves born need to be tested for virus. The cheapest and quickest method for doing this is by ear tissue sampling and is best done as soon after birth as possible. In this way any positive animals are identified early minimising the risk they could pose to the herd. Tissue testing is best done using the official UK identifier ear tags, meaning two jobs can be done in one. In order to gain accreditation all calves born in a two year period require to test negative for BVD virus. Accreditation is maintained by continuing to screen all calves born for BVD virus with ongoing negative results. Tissue tagging of all the calves born is also an acceptable testing method for the Scottish Government BVD Eradication Programme.

BVD vaccination and the antibody check test Animals that have been vaccinated against BVD are likely to test positive for BVD antibody. This can cause problems for the BVD check test. The best approach is to ensure that young animals are vaccinated against BVD only after the samples have been collected for the BVD check test. This will remove any uncertainty about the source of any positive result. You should consult with your vet to determine the best time for BVD vaccination to protect your breeding herd. Ideally the vaccination course should be timed to ensure animals are fully protected before breeding. Some pneumonia vaccines also contain a BVD component. If your herd is more or less closed; added animals are all tested for BVD virus and your herd status is BVD accredited free then there is no need to use a pneumonia vaccine that contains BVD. Again you are recommended to discuss this fully with your vet to select the vaccine that is best for your herd situation.

Johne’s herd tests in TB1 areas. TB tests have the potential to result in false positive blood tests for Johne’s disease. Our standard advice is to ensure you leave the longest possible time between the TB test and the Johne’s blood test. Never go any sooner than three months after the TB test before you arrange for the Johne’s disease blood test to be taken. Otherwise you can expect to get some false positives. The proportion of the herd that responds in this way is fairly unpredictable, but it can be an important problem in some herds. However, even when this time period is observed, occasional herds can still experience false positives. For these problem herds in TB1 areas we recommend that the animals that test positive at the herd test are then faecal cultured. We will combine the samples in pools of five at the lab according to a careful protocol and culture them for the requisite six week period before the final PCR test on the product of the culture is done. This allows the costs to be minimised, but provides an assured way of demonstrating that the animals are not shedding the Johne’s disease organism. Remember that the faeces samples must be collected by your vet. The same problem arises with added animals that may be subjected to pre-movement TB tests. Any antibody positive result in this situation needs to be viewed with caution. Problems can be minimised by ensuring that the blood sample is collected on the day the tuberculin is injected into the animal. Always let us know if the added animal has been pre-movement TB tested and when it was done.


SAC Consulting Veterinary Services have agreements with several tag suppliers and has invested heavily in robotics to provide the best testing system for our cattle farmers. This note provides essential information on the use of tissue samples and our testing system. Screening for BVD PI animals in young calves using ear tissue is being widely promoted and makes sense for several reasons. • The sample collected is not blocked by maternally derived antibody (animals can be sampled from birth) • Sample collection is carried out as a by product of a required animal handling (application of official ear tag). • The tag can be applied and sample collected by nonveterinary operators working with care. • The sample is indelibly identified with the animal’s official ear number when young calves are tagged. • If button tags are used in older animals then the sample number matches the number on the button tag. • The sample containers are bar-coded, almost eliminating the opportunity for transcription errors When used in a BVD control programme tissue tagging confers several benefits. • PI animals can be detected at the earliest opportunity and removed from the herd. This breaks the cycle of infection in the beef cow herd and safeguards the health and productivity of calves in beef and dairy herds. • It allows the sale of BVD virus negative animals from non-negative herds. • It provides part of the simplest route for non-negative dairy herds to progress towards negative status. • It can be used as the BVD CHeCS or Scottish Government BVD screen in beef cow herds that sell all calves off the farm before nine months of age and so demonstrate freedom from infection. If you do not currently have BVD status speak to your vet now to put in place a cost effective screening programme.

Which tag to recommend? We have looked at several different tags and now favour two main types of tag on the following basis. The collected sample is tamper proof and free from extraneous contamination. The tag retention rate for both types of tag fully meets the industry standard. The sample container can be handled and opened by automated systems. There are several suppliers of these tags and we recommend the following: Caisley UK Cox Agri Murray Farmcare Ketchum Denimex(Toptags)

Some of these suppliers offer tag and test prices. For those suppliers that work with us we have made it a requirement that results must be copied to the vet as well as to the farmer. Conclusions • Ear tissue testing for BVD virus is a simple, cost effective method to allow the early detection and removal of PI animals • PCR is our test of choice and we have recommended tag suppliers • Where samples are tested using PCR the tags can be administered at any time within the legal limit. However where the antigen ELISA is used tags should be inserted as soon as possible after birth (ideally by day 3) to minimise the chance of incorrect test results. • A negative result on ear tissue testing lasts for the life of that animal and allows it to be sold as virus free. • The cost of the service is competitive and contact should be made with one of the companies listed.

BVD virus detection using ear tissue


Progress of the Scottish BVD eradication scheme We entered Phase 4 of the Scottish BVD eradication scheme in June 2015 and have achieved an important reduction in the number of herds that still have evidence of active BVD infection (not negative herds), The surveys carried out by SAC prior to the eradication scheme estimated BVD exposure in Scotland (herds testing “not negative”) at 40%. From September 2010 to April 2011 the Scottish Government subsidised testing to encourage farmers to test (this was phase 1 of the scheme). Almost 4000 herds took part and 28% of these had evidence of exposure to BVD while 72% of herds were “negative”. Less than 50% of dairy herds took part at this stage but 52% of those that did had evidence of exposure compared to 23% of beef herds. Screening for BVD became mandatory and all breeding herds had to test by February 2013 (phase 2) and annually thereafter. Over 90% of breeding herds complied and 18% had a “not-negative” status with a higher proportion in dairy herds (50% compared to 13% of beef herds).

Phase 3 came into force in January 2014. It became an offence to “knowingly” move PI animals except direct to slaughter. Data from April 2015 indicates that 9999 holdings have tested for BVD and the number of “notnegative” herds has now reduced to 15.5% (a reduction of 24.5% from before the eradication scheme) so clearly progress is being made. Since the start of the scheme 2050 persistently infected animals have been identified. Although the majority of these have been culled, 326 are known to still be alive and present on farms. For national success of the scheme it is imperative that persistently infected animals are culled as soon as they are identified. Phase 4 commenced in June 2015 and additional control measures have been put in place. Herds with a not negative status will now have movement restrictions. Animals from “not-negative” herds will only be able to move direct to slaughter unless they have been individually tested as virus negative. For further information see www.gov.scot/BVD

When is an animal from a Johne’s Risk Level 1 herd not a Risk Level 1 animal? In Johne’s disease control the best practice for sourcing breeding replacements is to buy from a Risk Level 1 herd. All animals born in that herd have a very low risk of being infected with Johne’s disease. This offers the highest level of assurance that you can get. However many herds have purchased animals within the herd and in the case of bulls it is not unusual to sell on a high value bull after he has been used for a few years. That bull may have been born in a herd that had a higher risk level for Johne’s disease or even no Johne’s control in place. It will have been tested at the original purchase, but it still has a higher risk of developing Johne’s disease that the home bred animals. This is recognised within the CHeCS rules in that such animals should be sold at the status of the herd it was born in. Therefore if purchased from a risk level 4 herd and then sold on from a risk level 1 herd perhaps after several years it is still only a risk level 4 animal. When you buy breeding animals, particularly mature ones you should check if the animal was born in the current vendor’s herd or if it is being sold on. If it is being sold on then you need to find the Johne’s health status of the original herd before you take a decision on purchase.

Understanding PCHS blood testing. All the blood tests which we use in PCHS are performed on red top sampling tubes. These tubes are often known as ’plain’ tubes although in actual fact these tubes do contain a substance that helps the blood sample to clot and separate. This ensures that there is as much of the sample as possible available for testing. BVD antibody/antigen, Leptospirosis, Johne’s disease, Neospora and IBR testing can all be done from the same blood tube provided the tube is full. Therefore to perform up to five tests each blood tube should be filled as full as possible. The tests we use to detect antibody are ELISA tests. This type of test can also be used to detect BVD virus in blood (and tissue) and is known as the BVD antigen ELISA. The ELISA detects the presence of antibody or for BVD, antigen, which is a part of the organism, using an amplification system that generates a colour change. The degree of colour change is the measure of how much antibody or antigen is in the sample and is read as an optical density (OD). In most tests the OD of the sample that is tested will be related to the OD of known positive samples to give a standardised value, sometimes termed the percent positivity. This is the result we report We also use red top samples for the BVD PCR test, which detects the presence of part of the genetic material of the BVD virus. PCR tests are able to detect very small amounts of the virus and cross contamination of samples can lead to false positives. To prevent that happening the blood sample for BVD testing in the PCR system cannot be used for any other test. That means that if BVD PCR testing is requested from a herd test then each animal must have two blood tubes collected at sampling. . If tests are required which are not part of the scheme testing (e.g. fluke ELISA test to look for antibodies to liver fluke) we would also require a separate blood tube and a diagnostic testing submission form for these tests to be completed by the submitting vet. Our appreciation & gratitude goes to the PCHS veterinary team for providing these articles.

Controlling the risk of adding Johne’s disease to your herd is based on managing added animals. The risk level accreditation helps you to purchase animals with the lowest risk of infection, but we know that very occasionally animals that have been purchased in good faith from a Johne’s disease risk level 1 or risk level 2 herd will go down with Johne’s disease. We know that adult animals can become infected and therefore there is always the possibility that the animal has not come with the disease, but picked it up in its new herd. But we also know that Johne’s disease takes a long time to develop. Therefore if a purchased animal tests positive for Johne’s disease in the first six months after purchase then it almost certainly came with the disease. If this happens to you let the vendor know. CHeCS intend to make a rule change so that such notification will impact on the Johne’s disease status of the vendor’s herd. You can expect this to be in place from Summer 2016.

Johne’s Risk Level 1 & Risk Level 2 status – what must I do with purchases The Johne’s risk level system is a way to minimise the addition of an infected animal. You can support that further by following the rule on added animals. Every animal, regardless of age, should be screened by blood and faecal examination and maintained in isolation from the herd until the result is known. There is no requirement to do that for animals from risk level 1 herds, but it is still worthy of consideration.

Johne’s rules – what if an animal sold from Risk Level 1or 2 herd goes positive within 6 months?


MAKE BVD HISTORY AN INNOVATIVE SOLUTION

NOW IN YOUR HANDS

A study from 2010 showed that a major hurdle to effective BVD vaccination is ease of use. Only 52% of the farmers in the study gave the two doses required for primary vaccination at the correct interval. Furthermore, just 24% completed the primary vaccination course at the recommended time prior to service leaving these animals and their calves without proper protection1.

Bovela brings innovation to BVD protection: a L2D (live double deleted) BVD vaccine providing 12 months protection against both BVDV types 1 and 2 from a single shot. Bovela prevents the birth of persistently infected (PI) calves caused by transplacental infection. Vaccination with Bovela can be done from 3 months of age. So now you can finally make BVD history. Ask your vet for more information.

Herd protection made simple

BVD

Eradication

There’s no reason to live with BVD; it can be eradicated from any farm. The mainstay of eradication is the identification and removal of PI animals. Various tests are available, including blood tests and tissue testing ear tags - a convenient way for many suckler herds to screen for PIs. Once any PIs have been removed, it’s vital that the herd is protected from future infection by vaccination and good biosecurity, supported by continuing routine surveillance.

SIMMENTAL REVIEW 2015

B

ovine viral diarrhoea (BVD) is one of the most prevalent and economically important diseases of cattle worldwide1. In Ireland, Animal Health Ireland (the organisation implementing the national eradication programme) has estimated the return on investment for eradicating BVD to be €10 gained for every €1 spent2. The effects of BVD can be subtle and often go undetected, but are extremely economically damaging. The Persistently Infected (PI) calf is key to the BVD virus’s success. If a cow or heifer is infected at a certain stage of pregnancy, her calf will be born persistently infected with the virus. A PI calf will continuously excrete a viral load one thousand times greater than transiently infected animals3, throughout its life.

BVD Type 2

The predominant strain of BVD in the UK is BVD type 1. However the presence of BVD type 2 in Europe is a cause for concern. Certain strains of BVD type 2 are associated with more severe clinical signs and higher mortality rates than BVD type 14. Unless vaccination includes protection from BVD type 2, even vaccinated animals are at risk from this emerging disease, since cross-protection from BVD type 1 vaccines is insufficient.

Vaccination

It’s important to ensure that any vaccination programme against BVD will provide 100% protection against the production of a PI calf. If cattle aren’t fully protected during pregnancy, infection may result in the birth of a PI calf. Traditional vaccination programmes have required two injections as a primary course and on a busy farm it can be difficult to ensure that the primary course is carried out correctly5. Bovela is the only live BVD vaccine available in the UK. It provides 100% foetal protection for 12 months, after a single shot. This one shot primary course ensures full protection after 3 weeks, without having to handle cattle a second time. Bovela protects against both type 1 and type 2 BVD, so cattle vaccinated with Bovela are protected against the strains of BVD currently prevalent in the UK, and also future-proofed against potential incursion of BVD type 2 into the country.

FAREWELL TO DEAR FRIENDS Ronald “Ron” Hodgkinson 15th January 1928 – 20th March 2015 Ron was born in the small village of Bolehill in the county of Derbyshire where he lived with his parents and younger sister June, until he reached the age of eight years old. The rural life, even at this early stage, left an impression on his mind that stayed with him throughout his life. At this time his parents took the decision to move to a small town in Leicestershire called Hinckley. Ron and his sister grew up and were educated at schools in the town. At the age of fourteen he left school and set out to search for his first employment. After working in a local Hosiery factory for a short time, his thoughts turned once again to country life and working the land. He managed to acquire his first Farming job on a farm run by a Farmer called Graham Grindle. Ron had at last found his goal in life and over the next few years developed the skills required to achieve his ambitions. He later moved to another local Farm called Hebblethwaites Farm to continue his development. At the age of twenty two he married a girl called Thelma, a marriage that happily continued for the rest of his life. It was at this time he had been offered a new farming job, as an agricultural worker, which included a house as part of the package. He and Thelma eagerly accepted the offer and moved in. Shortly afterwards, their first child Anne arrived, soon followed by a son, Graham. The next few years flew by and life was good for all the family. In 1952 a golden opportunity came to light and a rise up the farming ladder. A chance to take a tenancy on a Land Settlement Smallholding in Elmesthorpe. The first chance to run their own business. Livestock was acquired and life over the next few years, gave Ron even more experience. The final chance to complete the dream came along in

1957. Once again life had thrown up the ultimate opportunity to complete his ambition, a farm of their own. They signed the paperwork and moved into “Poplars Farm” Kimcote, near Lutterworth, Leicestershire that same year. They soon had their own Dairy herd and eventually acquired further assorted livestock and worked the land. In 1978 Ron decided to give up his dairy herd and purchased his first Simmental cattle, from which he started a breeding programme that continued for the rest of his life. Attending Sales and Shows throughout the country with his fine stock. Eventually in 1990 he was invited to become a judge by the Simmental Cattle Society. He was very proud of the recognition the Society had bestowed on him. Later further recognition came, when he was asked to judge other breeds at shows across the UK. In 1992 he was appointed cattle steward for the Leicestershire County Show and was also a member of the Cattle Committee. He continued to Judge Shows all over the country and developed an excellent reputation. His last show the “Kent County Show” took place in 2014. Ron had many sporting interests, Boxing, Football, and Racing were probably his favourites, although he was very knowledgeable about many other sports. He had close friends within the farming and local community who will miss his cheeky sense of humour and interesting stories. Many of which attended his funeral at the packed “All Saints Church” Kimcote, earlier this year. Of course the people who miss him most are his family, Ron’s loving wife of 65 years, Thelma, his children Anne & Graham and their families, his five grandchildren and his seven great grandchildren (all boys). They will cherish their memories of him forever. Obituary written by Colin Bannon

Stuart Jones, Llwynmelyn 28th April 1956 - 18th September 2015 Stuart lived all his life in Tregynon, Mid Wales, where he farmed with his wife Shân, and parents Tom and Edwina. His daughters Clare and Nerys, together with their partners Gareth and Dave, played an important part in his life – helping on the farm when needed. He also enjoyed spending time with his granddaughters Ffion and Elin, who he adored. Dairy farmers initially, the family decided to give up milking, and in 2003 Stuart formed the Llwynmelyn Simmental Herd with the purchase of a cow and calf, and in calf heifer from the Forsdale Herd. Further purchases were made from several notable herds over the years. He was a keen member and past Vice-Chairman of the Welsh Simmental Club and always joined in Club events whenever he was able. Stuart enjoyed showing and taking part in competitions; winning the Supreme Champion Herd in 2013 within the club herd competition. Even this year, despite his illness and with the help of his family, he managed to show his bull Llwynmelyn Euan at both the English National Show and the Royal Welsh. Sadly the herd was dispersed at Welshpool at the beginning of September - just four days before Stuart passed away. Stuart was a quiet man who fought his illness with great courage. He will be missed by family and his many friends and the very large gathering of mourners at his funeral bore testament to the high regard in which he was held. Obituary written by Margaret Parry

Alan Abram 21st February 1937 – 6th April 2015 Alan died peacefully with his family around him, after a short illness on the 6th April. Alan was born at North Elmham on 21st February 1937, where he lived until his parents moved to farm at Manor Farm, Oxwick, near Fakenham. He attended Colkirk Village School. From the age of 11 he was a boarder at Paston Grammar School, North Walsham, which he didn’t enjoy, and cycled home whenever possible. While there he had riding lessons and his father bought him a pony from the riding school called Black Magic. The only problem was that the pony was so used to following other ponies she wasn’t keen to strike out on her own, as a result Alan persuaded his sister to ride up and down the field on her bike so that he could follow! On leaving school he went to Easton College where he did an agricultural course. He then returned home to work on the farm with his Dad, particularly with the herd of pedigree Friesian cattle which he milked. He kept the milk records adding up all the figures in his head, and doing all the pedigree records. Perhaps this is where his love of the show ring began as they used to show the cows successfully around the area. Alan joined the Army to do his National Service, he was hoping for the veterinary corps but was placed in the catering corps, a little different from farming. He was posted to Malta and loved the island. One of the stories he told was at Christmas they were told they had turkeys for them to cook – what they didn’t expect was that they would be still alive, and nobody knew how to kill them, shooting was suggested until Alan showed them how to wring their necks. On his return home he joined Fakenham Young Farmers Club where he made some very good friends and joined in all activities – one of the favourites being playing hockey. He met Elizabeth (Jane to many of you). They were married in 1965 and started their very happy married life at High House Farm, the births of Nick and Michael completed the family, As there were no animals on the farm he decided to start a herd of pigs which he fattened and produced for bacon. Showing seemed to course through his veins beginning

with rabbits as a young boy and the Friesians. Alan then went into showing ponies with Nick, from leading rein to 14.2. after this the cattle took over again. Herefords came to Beetley for about 5 years followed by the starting of the Simmental herd in 1988. His interest in the Simmental breed started when he decided that we needed a continental breed rather than a native breed. His first Simmental was a Bull purchased from John Key to cross with the Herefords and the commercials. His love for breeding pedigree cattle soon came to the fore again, and he started the Beetley herd with the purchase of two cows from Brian Filby at Groveland. It was not many years before the Simmentals were shown, he got so much pleasure when it was “our day” and had been a successful one. He had a very keen eye and could pick out quality animals a mile off, and loved the challenges of breeding pedigree cattle. Cattle and Simmentals especially, were his favourite farming love. Alan was a past chairman of both the Norfolk Friesian Club and also the East Anglian Simmental Breeders Club, of which he was still a member and tried to attend meetings as often as possible. In May 2009 he had a serious accident when moving a cow and calf. He was very determined not to be beaten when faced with the prospect of being confined to a wheelchair and worked incredibly hard with the physio to prove everyone wrong. It was not easy and was painful at times but he didn’t complain and kept working at it. Whenever it was suggested that he try something new, he did it and his perseverance paid off as he took his first tentative steps and eventually he was able to walk indoors with a walker and also elbow crutches – not bad for a man who thought he might never walk again. His sense of humour always came to the fore and he often joked that he missed out the crawling stage! He took to his disability with the help of following his beloved football team; Norwich City as well as watching the cricket and horse racing. Alan was a quiet gentleman, well respected in the farming community, with a great sense of humour, which he kept right to the end. He faced his disability with great courage and said at the time that “ we had been dealt the cards and had to get on with it ” and that is exactly what he did, with great patience. Alan was a loving husband, a good father and a very proud grandfather. He will be sorely missed by all his family and friends. Nick Abram

SIMMENTAL REVIEW 2015

Centre West Club Report by David Savins

T

who did an excellent job, the supreme animal was a calf brought by Noah Hoskins. We ended the day with food brought by club members, also a raffle and guess the beans in a jar. We ended the year with our Christmas meal, which was a carvery which seemed to be enjoyed by all. Followed by the announcement of the herd competition and giving of trophies, and an excellent raffle.

REGIONAL CLUB REPORTS

his year’s AGM was held at the beginning of February, we moved to a new venue at Stratford Livestock Market where they have a nice room with a bar and a choice of very good food. The AGM was followed by a quiz, the questions were prepared by Peter Burgess but he could not attend the evening so Ros Allen our secretary took over and read the questions and we ended up having a very good evening with teams from other cattle and sheep societies. This year’s local bull sales normally held at Bristol Market moved to Worcester and was a successful sale. Three Counties successfully hosted the National Show which unfortunately I did not attend as my eldest daughter Clare had just given birth and we were in Cumbria. The show was overseen by Robert Hewlett and Ros Allen, Ros again doing an excellent job as host in the marquee for those that visited. Main club award went to Boddington Estates for Male Champion. Our annual herd competition again was successful, judged by Graham Fishlock and his partner Brenda who did an excellent job also, finding their own way around the farms. The herds are split into three categories. The Calf show was held this year at Worcester Market with a good show of young animals judged by Simon Key

Cornwall Simmental Club Report by Bridget Olds - Secretary

W

e started 2015 with a Club dinner at Trevaskis Farm in January where approximately forty people gathered comprising of members and their guests to enjoy a convivial meal. The dispersal sale of the Cathedral Herd took place at Sedgemoor Market in March where females were acquired by the Atherstone, Brynsworthy, Crendonion, Huntingford, Kurlycoat, Stantor and Stourton herds. We wish James, Centa and Sam Berry every success in the future while their support for both county and local shows will be much missed. The annual challenge against the South Devon club members at the Victoria Inn, Roche took place in April with Edd Buckland acting as quiz master. On this occasion the native breeders emerged victorious. The inaugural Society Sale at Worcester was held in May and stock from Bosahan, Chegwidden, Crowgey, Killiworgie and Pentor herds made the six hour trip in support of the event. Trade reflected the dropping beef prices at the time however, Cornish cattle featured in the pre-sale show and subsequently found homes across the Midlands, Wales and South West. It was encouraging to meet young people buying foundation animals or in the process of building stock numbers for their herds and we welcome both new and established breeders with pedigree and commercial enterprises to the 2016 sale. During the first week of June attention is centred on our County Show Royal Cornwall. David and Susan Donnelly were warmly welcomed on a return visit to Cornwall after judging our club herd competition in the past. Killiworgie Emperor 13, an Auchorachan Wizard son out of Ballinalare Buttercup secured the male championship over Sterling Ferdinand winner of the bull or heifer born since April 2014. Boddington Estates’, Sterling Petra’s Cairo took the female championship with Sowenna’s Celtic Betty in the

reserve spot. Sterling Bacardi’s Evita won the two year old heifer class while the Hawkeys landed the yearling heifer class with Sowenna Flanders a Popes Barclay daughter over Sterling Celia’s Fifi. Killiworgie also won the junior bull class with Killiworgie Fursty Ferret and in-calf heifer class with Killiworgie Dulcie both sired by Lakeside Warrior. Sophie Butcher showing Bosahan Fletcher won the Senior Young Handler class and stood reserve in the beef handler section to the overall winner. Wellatree, Kurlycoat and Pennytinney herds also took a hand in the proceedings and featured in the awards. The efforts and hard work of Cornwall members to ensure the cattle section showcases the many positive attributes of the Simmental breed is very Sophie Butcher showing much appreciated by the Bosahan Fletcher constant stream of visitors to the lines and our proud stewards. A big thank you to our President Charlie Harris and his wife Jenny in ensuring the hospitality tent ran smoothly and to club members and their families who also contributed in numerous ways, without your support it would be impossible to provide such a welcome stop during a hectic three days. During July & August: Killiworgie, Bosahan, Kurlycoat, Pennytinney, Sowenna and Wellatree waved the Simmental flag on the South West show circuit. Killiworgie Emperor was Champion at Stithians and Camborne. Wellatree Frankie lifted the Inter-breed and Supreme Championship at Okehampton and with her partner Wellatree Erica emerged unbeaten Pairs Champions at the one day shows.

REGIONAL CLUB REPORTS

Our 5th Commercial Open Day took place in August. Bob and Don Cowell welcomed us to the four farms they own within the Helston area and blessed with glorious weather we walked to Franchis Farm, the site of Helston Fatstock Show. Everyone was treated to a substantial carvery lunch at the Wheal Dream Restaurant before a coach tour of the remaining farms and parcels of land. The Cowells farm a commercial beef herd featuring various breeds, Simmental, Gloucesters, British Blue, Charolais, White Park, Belted Galloway, Limousin and Long Horn with smaller numbers of Kerrys and Irish Moyles. They also have a flock of sheep including Zwarbles and Suffolks plus a small group of Llamas. The family also have eight farms in the Bude area ably overseen by “Brian the market star”. Suckler cows with older calves are moved to North Cornwall and stock is sold through Holsworthy and Halworthy. The family adopt a farming ethos of concern and compassion for animal welfare, with extensive holding

sheds used to winter stock and for lambing. Machinery is immaculate and kept undercover for safety and security. Tractors and equipment are washed every day after use!! Several club members travelled to north Devon to visit the Brynsworthy Herd on Sunday 26th August. True to the breed we didn’t have to walk far to see the lovely cattle They came to us and we were the star attraction of the day as far as the cattle were concerned. We also saw some Hereford cross sucklers with impressive Simmental calves at foot sired by Dinton Brunel and Atherstone Persuader. We had a lovely day despite the rain and enjoyed great hospitality including the most enormous ice-cream cornets provided by our hosts Steve and Dawn. A busy month ended with Paul Walker visiting over the August Bank Holiday to judge the club herd competition with several members joining him for a meal at Trevaskis before his return journey. The awards were made at a dinner in September with Bosahan emerging Large Herd and Overall Winners for the second year.

REGIONAL CLUB REPORTS In September we visited Wales on our Annual club trip and were treated to amazing hospitality and super cattle. Based in Carmarthen, Aled Davies organized our itinerary and our friendly coach driver Allan kept us amused in between visits. Day 1. First up was Cwarre Herd with Debbie Cumming, a small but quality collection of cattle including lovely heifers. Then off to Aled Davies and the Hirwaun Herd. We saw impressive cows and a very nice Wizard bull calf. After a run of nine male calves much to Aled’s dismay there was an absence of female progeny! Fabio and Fernando destined for Stirling were looking very smart. We were treated to a lovely supper and plenty of chatting as the evening drew in. Day 2. Off in the bus to the Welston herd, Anthony and Lesley Davies’ a large, organic, mainly grass fed and finished herd. The cattle were a content and uniform collection commercially farmed and gave us much food for thought. A fantastic lunch in their beautiful house was an absolute treat. Then off to Dewisland Herd where Mark and Emma proudly showed us their cattle and it was lovely to see their enthusiasm for their developing herd. We enjoyed a delicious tea on a sunny afternoon with the family including a very new baby. Day 3. We drove ourselves to Eirian and Delyth Lloyd and their Gerawil Herd. The small, select herd of cattle included some spectacular cows. We sat in the sun enjoying tea and cake before setting off again. After climbing to 1,000 feet we reached Gethin and Enfys Lloyd’s Crugmelyn herd. We were shown their super cattle accompanied by some pet lambs, and Elvis also joined the party! We were also given a demo of how to halter break and lead calves with their donkey. Enfys and family provided an amazing roast lunch and the most delicious puddings! This delightful and generous family gave us all a beautifully presented gift of daffodil bulbs for their Cornish visitors to enjoy in the spring. After appreciating amazing views and travelling down long narrow lanes we arrived at Kitty and Bryan Raymond’s immaculate farm where Dylan showed us their few remaining animals soon to be sold at their dispersal sale. Once again we were offered delicious refreshments before heading back to Cornwall. Without doubt we had a fabulous visit to our Welsh Simmental friends leaving impressed by the cattle, appreciating their generous hospitality and lamenting our daily weight gain.

October saw Cornish breeders attending the dispersal and reduction sales of Ben-nant and Crackley. Steve (after featuring on Welsh TV) and Gill Gummow secured Bennant Ffion a January 14 daughter of Dovefields Gallant to join their Killiworgie Herd. While Crowgey and Sowenna invested in Crackley cows, daughters of Vingegard Texas, Tiset Darwin and Lamhoj Supery, with Curaheen Cochise calves at foot. The fifth annual Cornwall Pedigree Beef Calf show took place on Sunday 25th October at the Royal Cornwall Showground. Mr Peter Holman sorted the continental classes selecting Chegwidden Florence Christobel as his Simmental Champion with Bosahan Galileo15 Reserve with a delighted Viv Hall winning the Championship for the first time.

The Sowenna Herd represented the Simmental Breed at Beef Expo South West held at Westpoint Exeter with Sowenna Furious, a Sowenna Tamar son, drawing plenty of positive comments and interest on the day. Kevin Thomas has added Curaheen females to the Crowgey herd and celebrated the Autumn Calf Show successes of Eaton Gamegirl a daughter of the Omorga Tarbuck sired Crowgey Cracker. Finally the next chapter for Bosahan Simmentals began in December with the arrival of a new junior stock bull Heathbrow Freddie Star 14 after a successful season on the show circuit including reserve male champion at the English National, a polled son of Celtic Comet with a HEATHBROW FREDDIE STAR

maternal line going back to the Canadian imported AWL Starlet his influence on Skerrington Armada’s daughters is keenly anticipated. So ends a report of an eventful twelve months where Cornish breeders have continued to develop and improve their herds adding new bloodlines and providing foundation stock to other breeders. Considerable investments have been made to offer out crosses and widen the choice of Simmental cattle in Cornwall .We warmly welcome breeders from the British Isles and beyond to visit and enjoy our wonderful county and hospitality.

SIMMENTAL REVIEW 2015

while the Bolankin herd were awarded the Judges Award for the best feet in the South West (that is for his cattle not Barrie personally!). Mr David Bush also commented on Chegwidden’s stock bull Alfie and the impressive commercial stock seen at Sowenna. Tuesday 10th November the Cornwall Club held their A.G.M. at the Victoria Inn, Threemilestone. The members unanimously returned Mr Charlie Harris as their popular president while Penny Lally (Chair), Viv Hall (Secretary) and Gill Gummow (Treasurer) retired from their posts. The Club President thanked them warmly for their hard work with a special mention for Penny who has overseen the development of the club and encouraged breeders to continually strive to improve their cattle over the past twenty years. Mr Jim Buckland takes the reins as Chairman, Viv Hall as Vice-Chairman and Bridget Olds as Secretary. Charlie Harris entertained us with a film show of the autumn trip to Wales following the meeting.

Going ‘Commando’ in Carmarthen - (Cornwall Simmental Club on tour 2015) The Cornish Club were woken by a noise ‘to wake the dead’ At 6.20 in the morning ‘twas alarming must be said The Boars Head in Carmarthen, a lovely old Hotel Set off the fire alarm full throttle, was it real? We could not tell So hurriedly we left our beds and threw some garments on And rushed down the steep old stairs in the Main Street to throng Some did not even bother as they saw no flames or smoke But should there have been, they might not have seen the joke So there we were, no knickers! trousers, jumpers grabbed in haste No glasses, bags or make up, stood outside our Hotel base When established it was a ‘false alarm’, back to bed again Till much laughter over breakfast glad Boars Head was not aflame!

REGIONAL CLUB REPORTS

East Anglian Simmental Club Report by Simon Key - Club Chairman

I

t is with much sadness that we lost one of our most respected and popular members Mr Alan Abram in Spring this year. He was very proud of his Simmentals and his well-earned successes. Alan inspired so many of us with his pure determination, even following his horrific accident several years ago. Alan was one of the kindest and supportive people you could ever want to meet and his contribution to our club over his many years of loyal service will never be forgotten. Our thoughts are with Elizabeth, his wife, and his family. At the Carlisle Bull and Leading Ladies Sale Paul Gunther purchased the Champion Simmental Bull Midhope Exceptional. Congratulations to all participants who supported any of the local shows. We started at the Newark & Notts Show where Paul Gunther came away with the Female Champion with Fircovert Cecilia and she also went onto take Reserve in the Interbreed. Next up was the Hadleigh Show with the Dowley family gaining Overall Champion & Reserve Interbreed Champion with Theberton Abagail. The Suffolk Show ended up in the same result with Theberton Abagail taking Reserve Interbreed Champion. At the Lincolnshire Show, our club member and Theberton Simmental Stockman Stephen Brett experienced his first outing as a judge. Williams Crystal’s Fleur won Reserve Junior Champion and Williams Felix went on to gain Male Champion. The Norfolk Show was an exceptionally hot few days. We enjoyed a lovely hog roast for all exhibitors on the Tuesday evening and special thanks go to Andrew and Hayley Clarke for supplying the goods. Theberton Abagail went on again to win Champion Simmental and then taking Reserve Interbreed.

Theberton Abagail

Theberton Abagail teamed up with Heathbrow Tristar to take Interbreed Pairs and then was joined by Sterling Grace’s Wilhemina, both owned by Williams Livestock, to take the Interbreed Group of Three, retaining the John Key memorial trophy. The Aylsham Show was the complete opposite with the rain not letting up for the duration of the show. Well done to all who got soaked through! There was a lovely new cup for the Overall Champion Simmental and Theberton Abagail went on to win that again. Congratulations to Justin and Emma and their hard working stockman Steve Brett. A super year for you all! Some of our other members attended shows and came home triumphant. Andrew and Hayley Clarke’s Williams Crystal’s Fleur went to the Royal Welsh Show and came back with Overall & Female Simmental Champion. Williams Fawkes made Reserve Overall, Male Champion and Junior Male Champion.

Theberton Abagail along with Heathbrow Tristar and Sterling Grace’s Wilhemina won the Interbreed Champion Group of Three at the Royal Norfolk Show

SIMMENTAL REVIEW 2015

William’s Crystal’s Fleur won Supreme Champion & Female Champion at the Royal Welsh Show

William’s Livestock got a first with Williams Crystal’s Fleur and she went on to get Junior Champion. The National was well represented from the East Anglian and South East Clubs. William’s Livestock got a first with Williams Crystal’s Fleur and she went on to get Junior Champion. A huge congratulations goes to Paul and Linda Gunther of Fircovert Simmentals who got a first and then went onto get Supreme & Female Champion Simmental with Fircovert Cecilia and she then went on to get Reserve Interbreed Champion. Her calf at foot Fircovert Gladiator won Best Calf at Show and their senior bull Fircovert Chester won Senior Male Champion. A big mention for Paul and Linda’s stockman Emma Long who won Best Young Stockman at the English National Show.

Our herd competition was judged by Mr Aled Davies from Hirwaun Simmentals and we thank him and his driver Richard for their sterling effort driving around Norfolk looking at our members’ cattle (it must have been quite a shock not to have grass growing down the middle of the roads!!) We hope you enjoyed our Norfolk hospitality on your flying visit. See attached the results from the herd competition. All in all another successful year for the East Anglian Simmental Club. I thank everyone for all their efforts in and out of the show ring and a special mention to Hayley Clarke for her exceptional secretarial skills and Phillida Hurn for her continued service as Treasurer.

Eastern Simmental Club Report by Emma McInnes, Secretary of the Eastern Club

I

n January we held our annual club dinner, this year it was held at the restaurant in Scarthingwell Golf Course in memory of the much respected club member and breeder David Pick. A most enjoyable night was had by all and we hope to hold future events at the venue. This year has been quite a year for success at the sales for our club members beginning with the Inaugural Pedigree English Premier Show and Sale which took place at Newark at the end of March. Top price female on the day came from the Hollingsworth family at 2,100gns was Midhope Emma, a Dirnanean Snowie daughter out of a Pasturehouse Paleface daughter, sold in calf to Delfur Chas. The Female Champion Midhope Desire was from the same stable and sold for 2,000gns.

Wealth daughter selling into the Fircovert herd for 6,000gns. Ian and Margaret Steele also had a good trade at the sale.

Midhope Everlight - Supreme Champion at the Leading Ladies Sale in April

Midhope Emma - Top price Female at the Newark Sale

Midhope Exceptional 13 - Overall Champion at the Carlisle Sale in April

The NBA Beef Expo event was held at York market at the end of May. Mr Willison kindly provided the cattle for the Society stand. On the day there was a buzz about the market with lots of interest and positive comments about the cattle and information given on the stand. In my opinion, visitors went home with food for thought on what the breed could do for them in their own businesses. Cattle on the NBA Beef Expo Stand Midhope Desire - Female Champion at the Newark Sale

Moving on to the Spring Show and Sale held at Carlisle which incorporated the Leading Ladies Sale. The Hollingsworth family did the double and took both the Leading Ladies Champion and the Overall Champion on the day. Leading Ladies Champion was Midhope Everlight, a Delfur Chas daughter out of a Corskie Wealth daughter, selling for 5,500gns to Mr J Green .

Midhope Brightlight - Supreme and Female Champion at the Lincolnshire Show

Hollingsworth family took Brightlight to the Yorkshire Show and took Reserve Champion with her, they then exhibited her at the Driffield Show. In September Mr Willison kindly opened his gates to hold an open day to showcase the work he has been doing alongside the Society with regards to the monitor farm. Simon Marsh came to give us a brief overview on his views on the industry and James Dickson of Westpoint vets came to explain the importance of bull fertility testing. The main showcase was seeing Mr Willison’s herd at grass. Ian gave us a good insight into how he manages to achieve what he does with the buildings he works from, how he manages the grass and most importantly, his cow management. The herd of cattle and the concise information Mr Willison is collating for the Society is a real credit to him and his family. The whole story of information from Mr Willison’s herd is being published over the forthcoming year in instalments in the Farmers Weekly. As a club we may not have oodles of members but the passion that the members we do have for both the breed and cattle in general is second to none. Without events a club cannot carry on but with the same respect without numbers the events can’t run so if you have an interest in Simmental cattle and would like to partake in the events that we hold and socialise with like minded people, please contact us and we will be more than pleased to welcome you and tell you of forthcoming events.

Tom Hill & Ruby Wright took Junior Champion with their heifer Scotland Hill Fauna Faith and Brian Lundy had success with a young bull that I’m sure we will be seeing at a sale in the future. The Pick family, Pat & Mary Thurston and the Steele family all exhibited females that I’m sure we will be seeing again or success with the progeny of in the future.

Midlands Simmental Club Report by Anthony Heath - Chairman

I

t has been a quiet year for the Club. We had a quiz night at Yarlet on 25th February and after a neck and neck start, the Centre West club eased into the lead and took the spoils again. Thanks to Quiz Master Chris Martindale and Kath for coming up with the questions. The herd video competition is no more, if any member has an idea for something in its place, please come forward. The Herd Competition was judged by David Burkill (Beechtree). It is no mean undertaking as the cattle are spread out far and wide. Thanks to David. The presentation was held at Eaton House, I hope everyone enjoyed it. Thanks to Sarah(my better half)for her organisation, Richard Storer Smith for providing the marquee, Mandy for all her help and all the people who provided sweets. The results are released, well done to David and Christine Loftus for Champion Herd and David Donnelly for Reserve. The sun shone all day.

Finally the English Winter Fair was upon us. The Simmentals were well represented in the calf show, well done for all your entries. Thanks to Richard for his dedication and professionalism on building the stand. It is a credit to him, Louise and the team that it was again one of the best looking stands at the show. The cross bred cattle showed the industry what a Simmental bull can do, we don’t win the live competitions, but weight for age, we can beat any breed. Two cheques were presented to Help for Heroes and MacMillan Cancer Support.

North East Club Report by Jayne Pick, Secretary of the North East Club

A

nother year has passed and what a memorable year it has been for several North East members. The Club’s year started with the AGM in March at a new venue ‘The Buckles Inn’, Bilbrough. All Club positions remain unaltered except I have taken over the reins again as Secretary. Carlisle show and sale in April brought success for David Burkill with ‘Beechtree Eclipse 13’ who was placed 1st in his class and later sold for 5,200gns. John, Val and Craig Hollingsworth were awarded the Overall Champion with ‘Midhope Exceptional 13’ selling for 6000gns. Also on the same day the Leading Ladies Sale took place. ‘Midhope Everlight’ from the same stable took the Overall Championship before being sold for 5500gns. What a proud and remarkable achievement for the Hollingsworth family. NBA Beef Expo came to our area in May. It was held at the York Livestock Market, Murton. Special thanks to members who helped staff the stand. I am sure the event was one of the best attended in recent years. The cattle on display were kindly loaned by Mr Ian Willison; they were a credit to him and the breed and were much admired throughout the day. What a terrific advert for the Simmental breed. The clubs premier show the Great Yorkshire took place on the 14th-16th July. The show seems to go from strength to strength and it was very pleasing to see two new exhibitors. The show had Royal visitors on the first day and ‘The One Show’ was broadcast live on the

Wednesday evening. Club members faired very well in their classes. John, Val and Craig Hollingsworth took Reserve Overall Champion with their cow ‘Midhope Bright Light’ who was following on from her Interbreed success at the Lincolnshire Show in June; a feat not achieved by a Simmental for eleven years. Ian and Margaret Steele gained a second in the young heifer class with ‘Blakewell Wallflower’s Freesia’ who was expertly prepared and shown by their granddaughter Emma. Thanks must go to all club members who helped with the box, both before, during and the clear up after the show; it is very much appreciated. The last show in our area was Driffield on July 22nd. ‘Midhope Bright Light’ finished her showing year by taking the Championship whilst Ian and Margaret Steele took Reserve with ‘Blakewell Sweethearts Camille’. In September the Club had a memorable visit to the ‘Denizes herd’ of Michael Barlow and family. A huge thank you to the family for giving their time to show us around the cattle and for providing such warm and generous hospitality, it all made for a super afternoon. The herd was shown off splendidly in the late summer sunshine, what a credit your cattle are to you. Our Annual Dinner was held at the usual venue ‘The Golden Fleece’, Thirsk on Saturday 14th November. The Dalgety show trophy was awarded to John, Val and Craig Hollingsworth for collecting the most points at shows around the region. The meal is the last get together for

Club members before the onset of the long winter months. Our young members Katie and Emma Steele did themselves and the Club proud when being placed 1st and 2nd respectively in a very strong senior young handler’s competition at the Lincolnshire Show in June. David Burkill had the honour of being asked to judge the November Carlisle show & sale and the Midlands Herd Competition in August. And last but not least our Chairman Craig Hollingsworth had the privilege of judging the young stock and calf show at AgriExpo, Carlisle in October. Congratulations to you all. There has never been a better time for us to shout about the attributes of the Simmental breed. Here’s hoping 2016 brings success, good fortune and profitability to all breeders.

REGIONAL CLUB REPORTS

North West Simmental Club Report by Wendy Dickinson, Secretary of the North West Club

O

ur year started off with the AGM where Chris Addison and I were elected as Chairman and Secretary. We were delighted that club member Alan Tallentire had been successful in gaining a seat on council. When the business part of the meeting was over Scott Donaldson gave us a very humorous account of his life, firstly as a clerk then as an auctioneer. He recalled the time when the lady auctioneer to whom he was a clerk got her lovely white coat covered in spring grass!! Next it was the Leading Ladies - a tremendous show of cattle were put forward for the judge Mr Hector Macaskill who gave the Champion to the Hollingsworth’s Midhope Everlight, a Delfur Chas sired heifer which went on to make 5500gns and sold to Laura Green. The Reserve Champion was brought out by Boddington Estates and was the Sterling Viking 2nd sired Sterling Naomi’s Ella, she went on to make 3000gns and sold to the Keens. In the served heifer class the Robson’s brought out Kilbride Farm Dora 65E, a Cairnview Snazzy daughter and a really classy heifer which went on to make 8300gns, she has joined the Donnelly’s Atlow herd. In the bulls another good show was put forward for the judge who awarded Champion again to the Hollingsworths with their Delfur Chas sired Midhope Exceptional which made 6000gns and went to Paul Gunther Livestock .The Reserve was awarded to the Green’s Corskie Eterno, a Dirnanean Bradley sired bull which sold for 6000gns to the Atkin brothers from Derbyshire. Club member Alan Tallentire won the club’s crystal goblets with his bull Swingletree Emporor a Raceview King sired bull which realised 4200gns, he now joins the Wood’s Popes herd. Members went to various shows throughout the summer but unfortunately due to restrictions the shows were down in entries. A big thank you to all members who did go out and promote the breed. In July we travelled north for our annual farm walk to visit the Annick and Cairnview herds. We finally arrived {after some members followed sat nav which took a detour around a housing estate}, to a welcome brew and traybakes. Luckily, we had taken our good weather up there as we had a walk rather than a ride due to ground poaching around Lachlan’s cattle, he said they had experienced a lot of rain and many farmers had already put their cattle inside!! We last visited this herd in the late 80’s so it was good to go back and see this good herd of cattle. After our walk we were treated to homemade soup and cakes which were very welcome! Thanks to Christine for all her hard work with this. We also enjoyed an interesting talk about racing Huskies while having lunch!! Next we went to the Wilson’s Cairnview herd; the

074

favourite for many was Tilly who was to be offered in calf to Snazzy at the Stirling sale in October. After viewing some super cattle we had refreshments before returning home. Huskies at Lachlan Quarm’s Annick herd farm walk

Our Annual Stockjudging this year was held at Bavington Hill Head Farm by kind permission of the Sanders family. Master Judge was David Lowry and the senior winner was Christine Heaps, the junior section was won by Richard Sanders, with Lucy Sanders a close second. We then had a walk around the farm before being treated to an excellent buffet tea. Our club was approached by Kate Gascoigne from the Cumbria Farmers Network to see if any of our members would be interested in taking part in a trial to monitor the merits of the Simmental Dam in the commercial system. Two members are now involved in the scheme - Kevin & Yvonne Holliday from Strudda Bank, Cleator Moor and Alan Tallentire, it is very interesting reading how well the dam converts her grass when she is regularly weighed. The stand at the Carlisle Agri Expo was very busy all day and a lot of interest was shown in the cattle on our stand especially when they heard how many calves the cow had produced - a super example of our breed. Exhibitor’s cattle were of excellent quality too and our Judge, Craig Hollingsworth, after a long wait for a free ring awarded the Senior and Supreme Champion to Jim and Patricia Goldie with the Kilbride Farm Rainman sired heifer Newbiemains Fabrege . The Reserve Senior and Reserve Supreme Champion came from the Gwynne family with their


Vikki Wood’s Popes Foreman who was sired by Kilbride Farm Comber he made 2800gns and was purchased by JS Murrey from Dumfries, The Reserve Supreme Champion was Castlemount Kleeb 2 , sired by Dermody Butcher and brought forward by D D McDowell, got to 2100gns but was unsold. The Reserve Champion Female was Chestermann Ringleader Virginia, a Blackford Ringleader sired heifer brought forward by club members the Gwynne family, which made 2000gns. She sold to D C Houldey’s Manor Park herd Lockerbie. The Gwynne family also received the club’s crystal goblets, for the best animal exhibited by a club member.

REGIONAL CLUB REPORTS

South East Club Report by Rhys Grenham - Chairman

A

nother year has passed us by, as usual we started our year with the AGM in London at the Farmers Club. Our guest speaker for the evening was Mr Stuart Roberts from ABP Beef who gave a very interesting talk on the grading of cattle for the finished product. Our Farm Visit in May was to the Harding Family Hallway Simmentals, a good herd of strong cows with an excellent group of bulling heifers. Young bulls taken through to finishing then go to ABP Beef along with any heifers that don’t make the grade. This could be a herd to watch in the future. Our visit ended with a BBQ. The Show season was now upon us, David and Lesley Sapsed with Heathbrow Freddie Star, a January 2014 born bull, was unbeaten in the South East throughout the season, and became the South East Group Simmental of the Year. Hayley and Andrew Clarke with Williams Crystal’s Fleur, had a successful year winning The Royal Welsh Show and the Junior Heifer Champion at the National Show. Congratulations to our members with a good turnout at the National Show and winning five first prizes. Our Herd Competition was kindly judged by Michael Robson from Northern Ireland who covered a lot of miles in a short time, as you will see from the results a good range of our members won prizes. The Autumn Meeting at the Farmers Club was followed by the annual dinner which was well attended with Michael Robson and his wife joining us all for the evening where he presented the Herd Competition Trophies and certificates.

Improved Herds Awards 2015 Heathbrow Herd Wins Most Improved Herd Award for the Simmental breed

H

eathbrow herd, owned by David and Lesley Sapsed from Hitchin in Hertfordshire, has been recognised by AHDB Beef & Lamb as the Most Improved Herd of British Simmental cattle in England for 2015. The award is presented by the AHDB Beef & Lamb Better Returns Programme (BRP) to the recorded herd that shows the greatest genetic gain for commercial characteristics over a 12-month period. There is a separate award for each of 10 UK breeds.

www.britishsimmental.co.uk

Canadian genetics kick start polled herd The Heathbrow pedigree Simmental herd was established at High Heath Farm in 1996, following the dispersal of a dairy herd, and it has gradually replaced an existing mainly crossbred suckler herd. There are now 40 pedigree sucklers and 60 progeny on the 260 hectare (650 acre) farm, which also grows 200 hectares (500 acres) of cereals, with the assistance of long-term employee Kevin Jenkins. “We had a few pedigree cows when we had the crossbred herd and the


Figures support pedigree stock selection The current stock bull, Celtic Comet, was imported from Ireland three years ago and his progeny are almost all polled. He has a Terminal Sire Index of 91 and SelfReplacing Index of 95. He and the previous stock bull, Dirnanean Welcome 1, have both also had good Estimated Breeding Value (EBV) figures. “When we buy a bull, we have to like the look of him first, then we check the indexes and want them to be within the top 20 per cent of the breed,” explains David. The EBVs for Milk, Calving Ease and Gestation Length are also used as a management guide. Paying attention to Calving Ease Index in their bulls means the Sapseds have an easy calving herd. “Weighing the cattle regularly for Breedplan is a good discipline and highlights the above average 200 and 400-day weights,” adds David. They also take a keen interest in the

SIMMENTAL REVIEW 2015

Simmentals had a phenomenal growth rate compared with the other breeds and plenty of milk, so we chose to build up their numbers,” says David. “Lesley and I can manage them comfortably, having weeded out any temperament issues we came across.” They have now also proven they have great longevity on the farm. They decided at the outset that polled Simmentals were the future. They felt Canada was where the best polled cattle were at that time and imported a polled bull and heifer from the AWL herd. “Unfortunately the bull had an accident and died leaving no heifer calves, but the influence of AWL Starlet has been tremendous winning 10 breed championships and five interbreeds,” David says. “However, her main contribution has been through her progeny. Although she has retired at over 20 years old, there are currently 19 descendants at Heathbrow, including three in the show team.” Not all female lines on the farm are polled, but where horned animals have been bought they have come from outstanding female families, explains David. However, polled stock bulls have always been used alongside polled sires selected for Artificial Insemination. The result of careful selection and breeding means the herd is now 60 to 70 per cent polled.

families of stock they buy. “It’s rare for us to buy a bull or heifer without seeing its mother, grandmother and sisters if possible.” The Sapseds enjoy showing their stock, with help from Richard Davis. Their successes include the breed’s National Show championships in 2013 and 2014 with different animals, and the Reserve Champion with Heathbrow Freddie Star 14, a grandson of AWL Starlet in 2015, so the look of animals is important. But these animals have also had good figures with Freddie Star having a Terminal Sire Index and a Self-Replacing Index in the top 20 per cent of the breed and the 2014 winner Heathbrow Duchess with both indices falling within the top ten per cent. Performance recording boost sales They started performance recording with Breedplan when some of the buyers of their pedigree stock began to ask for figures and it has also proven to be a good tool for managing the herd. “Combined with showing, it has helped move the herd upwards. We can see our EBV figures rising as we take out the bottom of the herd,” says David. The quality of the herd means almost all bulls and heifers are sold from the farm. Often an initial contact is made at a show where doing well has helped build their reputation, but many repeat buyers continue to return when they want stock. The aim of the herd is to breed stock fit for pedigree breeding, as replacements and to sell to other breeders. There are inevitably a few that are not quite good enough for breeding and the Sapseds would not sell these or keep them. “Finished animals go straight to the abattoir and they achieve tremendous weights, so we get a good price for them,” David adds. Lower cereal prices justify increasing the herd The herd size will increase this year, because a lower cereal price is helping keep feeding costs down and there are 19 very good maiden heifers on the farm, so they are tempted to keep many of them. The Sapseds are very enthusiastic for the future of the Simmental breed. “They are good as pure breds, but can also be an important part of crossbred herds, with their milking ability, longevity, temperament and tremendous weight gains,” says Lesley.

Welsh Club By Anthony Davies - Chairman

I

n January, the Welsh Club started with our annual dinner in the pleasant surroundings of the Marine Hotel in Aberystwyth, where we welcomed members new and old. Later in the month, Anwen Jones and I joined Aled Davies at Stoneleigh for The Club Chairmen and Council Meeting, when we had a good opportunity to meet chairmen and council members and exchange ideas first hand. The AGM was held in March at the White Hart, Llandeilo, and we were joined by our Chief Executive, Neil Shand. We had Gareth Scott (Cogent) as guest speaker, who gave us a useful insight into the Cogent Beef Stud. Club Officers remained in office for 2015, and I want to take this opportunity to thank them, with Margaret Parry (Club Secretary) and Aled Davies (Council Member) in particular, for doing a wonderful job. The rural spectacle that is the Royal Welsh Show, gives the farming community a chance to relax for a while. Horse trailers, tents and caravans (some get a whacky paint job) head for Builth to enjoy the holiday of choice for young and old. This was a landmark year as for the first time we had a Welsh judge, when our own Meirion Jones undertook the prestigious role. Congratulations Meirion, we feel sure you enjoyed the honour. At the Show our Club concentrated efforts to man the Simmental Stand, to provide a meet and greet venue for all our members, and hopefully, to attract new customers. Neil Shand and David Donnelly joined us and it was good to have their support. As usual, we held a barbeque on the Tuesday evening for members and exhibitors, and thanks to everyone who helped also to Richard Storer Smith for the loan of his barbeque and gifting a welcome barrel of beer that helped to keep the cooks cool! In the show ring, congratulations go to Debbie Cumming ( Cwarre ) who took Reserve Female Champion with Cwarre Cinderella’s Firefly and Stuart Jones (Llwynmelyn) taking senior bull with Llwynmelyn Euan, a really nice bull. This year’s Young Stock Person Prize went to Natalie of the Storer Smith Team - well done young lady. Finally, we donated £200 to Wales Air Ambulance, which were proceeds from a Guess the Weight Competition at The Winter Fair in 2014. No sooner was The Royal Welsh over, than we welcomed the Young Members to Wales for their Annual Weekend. There were people from England, Scotland, Ireland, Denmark, and Switzerland as well as our Welsh youngsters. Thanks to Brian and Kitty Raymond (Ben-Nant) for hosting the welcome event with a visit to their wonderful herd followed by a splendid supper. The following day, we were pleased to welcome them to our farm to compete in stock judging, cattle clipping and show preparation, which John Barlow and Emma McInnes kindly helped us with. Thanks also to our Judges for the day, Mr John Moore (Omorga) and

At the end of August we had our herd competition that was judged by Mr. Steve Eales and his wife Jenny, who had a whistle stop tour of the Principality. I would like to thank them for their time and effort and hope that they enjoyed themselves. Also, many thanks to the Nicholas family for hosting the prize giving evening. September arrived and it was a real pleasure to welcome the Cornish Club, bringing good weather with them. There was a lot of talk about rugby in the run up to the World Cup – perhaps best if I don’t say any more. Early September saw two of our members holding dispersal sales. Brian, Kitty and Dylan Raymond took their renowned Ben-Nant herd to auction and whilst some

remained in Wales, others were snapped up by herds in Cornwall and Staffordshire. We all wish Brian and Kitty every happiness in their retirement, and trust that they will remain an important part of our Club. Stuart Jones and family sold their Llwynmelyn herd, and the quality stock readily found new homes. He had won the large herd section the previous year, and given more time, he would have won a lot more. Sadly, Stuart lost his very brave fight with cancer and passed away shortly after the sale. His cattle were a tribute to him, and the huge attendance at the funeral demonstrated the high esteem in which he was held. Our thoughts go to the whole family. In September 2014 we launched a calf competition for the highest priced Simmental calf in Carmarthen Mart. Each month we gave a £20 prize to the winners on top prices ranging from £380 to £485. Building on this initiative, we are going to continue the competition through 2015. The end of September, saw the All Wales Ploughing and Hedging Match come to Pembrokeshire, where we held our Calf Show. The calves looked great and created a lot of interest to a crowd of mostly farmer spectators, which is quite unusual at a show these days. Congratulations to both Aled Davies (Hirwaun), who took Champion, and Reserve for Gethin Lloyd (Crugmelyn). Thanks to all who competed and helped out on the day. The Club trip was to Ireland and the Roscommon Show and Sale where 14 members enjoyed assessing the entry of 50 bulls and over 100 females. The bulls impressed with two returning with us to Wales. To complete the trip we visited the impressive Clonguish herd of Jo and Sean McGarry, and then on to see Garrett and Lyndsay Behan’s exceptional Clonagh herd. We saw top quality cows and heifers in every field, but my highlight had to be Banwy T Rex – what a bull – 4 TIMES ALL IRELAND MALE CHAMPION. Well done Dafydd (Banwy) for breeding him. It goes without saying that every organisation is only as good as the sum of its members. Well, here in Wales we have been extremely lucky as we have Members who have supported whole heartedly for many years together with newer enthusiastic members. We finished the year with a wonderful Welsh Winter Fair, Aled Davies’s (Hirwaun) two bulls providing lots of interest with a Guess the Weight competition and they helped us to win Reserve Breed Stand (again). A busy couple of days and for a change we were nearly washed away rather than freezing cold!! Here’s looking forward to Guess who?? 2016.

SIMMENTAL REVIEW 2015

Monday morning, they visited the Gerawil Herd of Eirian and Delyth Lloyd and in the afternoon they visited the Dewisland herd of Mark and Emma Evans and finished the day off in St David’s City. On Tuesday the Young members attended Pembrokeshire County Show where the Welsh National Show had attracted an entry of 40 cattle. Boddington Estates won overall champion with Sterling Petra’s Cairo, John Barlow was Reserve with Auroch Eve and Gethin Lloyd took Male Champion with a Raceview King son Crugmelyn Elvis 13. The day was rounded off with a farewell pig roast, when we wished our young friends a safe journey home. Wednesday morning at the Show saw Boddington take Reserve Interbreed Champion and Junior Interbreed Bull with Sterling Ferdinand 14. The team of five was a tough competition but the SIMMENTALS STOOD SUPREME.

Tour 2015

ollowing on from a successful trip to the North of Scotland in 2014. Our 2015 trip saw us embark on a trip to West Wales. This year we had participants on the trip from as far afield as Denmark and Switzerland. We all met at the first herd visit which was held at the beautiful farm of Bryan and Kitty Raymond (Ben-nant herd). One of the first things that became very apparent was that we were going to be spending the next few days in very scenic surroundings. We were treated to a welcome tea as the opening of the trip and then went to the fields where the cattle were out grazing and had a leisurely peruse. Whilst many of the young members asked Bryan and Kitty plenty of questions about the breeding of them, knowing that the herd was to be dispersed in September definitely had youngsters asking “can we go to that sale please Dad!” It was obvious that the farm and cattle had been a labour of love for many years. Your hard work definitely paid off Bryan and Kitty, the whole set up was a real credit to you. I’m sure that we will see your breeding for many years to come out at shows and sales.

The second day saw the main event of the trip held at the Welston herd owned by Anthony & Lesley Davies and family. All of the YM suited and booted ready for the stock judging.

YM getting stuck in

Four classes of cattle were put in front of them to judge. They placed all four classes and had to give reasons on one. After the YM gave their reasons and ate a lovely lunch kindly laid on by Lesley and her helpers. The senior section Judge John Moore read out the placing of the classes and then Arwel Jones the Junior section Judge gave us his reasons. I’m sure everyone sat in the barn at that point took something away from listening to Arwel. We then had a demonstration from John Barlow on clipping and preparing an animal for the show ring. The international guests definitely took all of that in asking many questions along the way. We also had the age old debate as to whether modern ways and products present an animal better than traditional ways!

Lizzie Harding presents the Evans family with a Quaich in appreciation of their support for the YM tour

Show day of the Welsh National Show had arrived, the participants of the trip enjoyed watching the judging from start to finish, a rarity for many of us who normally are on the end of a rope or comb! As the classes drew to a close we had a few hours to spare to enjoy the rest of the show. As afternoon turned to evening our international guests got the chance to speak and ask the stockmen questions on what we do over here. At times I had to interpret for both sides due to, shall we say the broad accents of some Katrine Olsen from Denmark stockmen but this obstacle enjoying the Welsh National Show. was soon overcome by the international guests showing pictures from their phones of their stock and farms from back home! The Welsh Simmental Club held a hog roast where we held our thank you presentation.

For lunch we travelled to the Cwmcerrig Farm shop, where we had a lovely carvery and desserts, I wondered if we were to eat or climb them! Back onto the coach we hopped for the longest leg of our journey which obviously flew by with a game of eye spy whose participants age ranged from a 2 year old to well… the Society President! According to Lilly we saw numerous diggers along the way. We arrived at the Dewisland herd of Mark and Emma Evans. In the cows and calves field we saw some cracking young stock but Mark and Emma definitely saved the best for last as the field of heifers were a credit to them. A field full of uniform heifers, you could definitely see what Mark and Emma were striving towards. Dewisland Heifers

We spent a fantastic few days in beautiful surroundings, with warm welcomes everywhere we visited, with hospitality second to none. On behalf of the Society, Neil and I thank the Welsh Club for all the hard work and effort that went into holding this event for our young members, so much work goes on behind the scenes prior to the event that goes unseen, so again thank you for your hospitality and generosity.

SIMMENTAL REVIEW 2015

After the YM stock judging presentation and a vote of thanks to Anthony and family for going to all the effort they had gone to, to put on the event for us we got on the coach and went for a paddle at Tenby. After a swift switch of queues we managed to fit in fish and chips for tea. When Neil and I asked the lady can we come inside and have fish and chips, I’m not so sure she realised how many fish and chips we meant! I was shocked to learn that our international guests hadn’t had this dish before. The sea air had either made them really hungry or they enjoyed them, either way, every plate was clean! Monday saw us travel on the coach to the Gerawil herd. Eurian and Delyth Lloyd showed us around their established herd and gave us an interesting insight on how they are using their dairy background to breed and manage the Simmental herd. They made some interesting and valid points along the way. We saw a strong herd of females with some young stock that I’m sure in the not too distant future we will all be seeing and hearing about.

National

YOUNG SHOW STARS T

his April the society put together a team to go to the new stand alone event for young stockpersons. This event was called the National Young Show Stars held at Three Counties Showground. The young members participating were Will Abram, Katie Steele and Lizzie Harding. We were kindly provided cattle by Boddington Estates to take to the event. The team members had to create a promotional stand themselves so prior to the event the three competitors set to and put together a slideshow presentation introducing themselves and a number of slides as to why the Simmental breed is the way to go! We met a day early at Boddington Estates to get acquainted with the cattle and each other. The team all mucked in and washed the cattle in preparation for the event, we also unfortunately had the opportunity of finding out just how brave one of our team members was. Then in the evening a good amount of time was spent going through possible questions with regards to the industry, which at times sparked debates. On the morning of the event the Team loaded all kit, feed, straw and cattle and set off to the showground. The team were assessed from pulling up with the cattle in the trailer to the finale in the show ring later that day. The team then set about washing, bedding up, setting their stand up, then began preparation which included clipping the heifers for the main event. Part of the event included stock judging where all three team members placed the animals and only one gave reasons. The stock judging had a slight twist, there were five animals to judge and one of the animals had to be chosen to be disregarded from the traditional ranking of four animals. Ring craft was the next aspect under scrutiny. Katie and Lizzie led the animals. Will participated in an interview about the breed and industry, performed in the ring whilst the girls were showing the heifers. The team that we took were one of the youngest competing and none of the members had really competed in an event of this manner. I would say the YM took away a lot from their experience and gave it their all which as a society that’s all we could ask for. On behalf of the society Neil and I would like to thank those that work behind the scenes to ensure we got to the event and Boddington Estates for the use of their heifers. By Emma McInnes

all with the same goal of breeding the perfect cow, but all with different ideas, ways and methods of accomplishing this, and all who farm on different systems and different types of land, which is a major factor in the type of animal produced. The most I have gained from being a Young Member is friends and knowledge. Without meeting the people I have met at various shows, sales and trips, I would not have any other views and opinions other than my own. Without being part of the Young Members and competing in the stock judging and without talking to various breeders and more importantly buyers, I don’t think I would have been able to be proposed to be put on the society’s official judges panel. An honour indeed as probably one of the youngest on it!!!

hat an absolutely fantastic time I’ve had as a Young Member. Luckily for me, I have been fortunate enough to attend numerous shows across England and Wales with my Father since the age of about 14 / 15 and have made many friends and gained a lot of knowledge and insight about the breed along the way. I remember taking part in my first stockjudging at Stoneleigh when I was about 15, and gained a second place in the junior section. This I feel is a fabulous competition, and the highlight of the Young Members years, as this was the only time we got together. As the years went on, another aspect came to the Young Members, and as well as the stock judging, training days were held. These were a useful tool and gave us useful tricks and tips to prepare stock for shows. As the years have gone on, the once one day socialising event for the Young Members, has turned into an excursion, with the event taking the form of a trip, with various herd visits incorporated. This is a fantastic opportunity, as it gives Young Members a chance to see different herds, and meet and talk to different people,

DERMOTSTOWN DELBOY - Male & Supreme Overall Champion - at the Royal Ulster Show

Royal ULSTER Show

I JUDGE: MR D DONNELLY

t is the greatest honour for anyone to be asked to judge any show, however for me to be asked to judge the cattle this year at the Royal Balmoral carries extra meaning, in that I spent a large amount of my younger years in and around Northern Ireland, where I still have family and friends. The weather was good and the numbers forward were a credit to all those who took part. My first two cow classes only had 3 entries, with the honours being handed out to a very strong first calved heifer, Raceview Cindy Matilda who showed all of the qualities I look for in females especially conformation and femininity. The 2 year old January heifer class saw the red rosettes going to a May born heifer,

Scribby Farms Exquisiter from the Nelsons by Drumlone Anchor and only being split from their youngest heifer, Scribby Farms Elegant by a very nice Auchorachan Wizard daughter, Ballinalare Farm Evita from Mr Joseph Wilson. The July 2013 class saw, what I felt was the best line up with the second heifer Emerald from the Lisglass herd being pipped by a beautiful heifer, Coolcran Lady Erin from the McDonald family who under pressure at the end of the day, would still not consider a sale! The yearling heifer class was won by Woodford Penny, but again we all have to take care about young heifers being fit and not fat. My Female Champion went to Raceview

Cindy Matilda with the Reserve going to the much admired McDonald’s Coolcran Lady Erin, an animal I look forward to seeing out again next year with a calf. Unfortunately, the bull classes were not to the same standard as my females, with

the exception of Dermotstown Delboy, who was Male Champion and Overall Supreme, something I now understand he has won for the second year running and Kilmore Franko, from Mr Chris Traynor, who was my Reserve Male and Junior Champion.

Thank you again to all those attending, the show is clearly growing into its new location and I look forward to visiting next year and seeing you all again.

JUDGE’S REPORT BY:

Royal Three Counties

F

JUDGE: MR G SMITH

irst of all, can I say how much I appreciated the excellent and kind hospitality shown to myself and Morag by the Three Counties Show and the Simmental Cattle Society members and staff. I would also like to congratulate all the exhibitors on a tremendous display of cattle, especially the females, which did the breed proud. The first class of females was won by Rhys Grenham with Boars Head Karina

5th, a very stylish young heifer with a promising future ahead of her. Second was Storersmith Freckle from Storersmith Simmentals, the youngest heifer and just giving away too much in age. I’m sure she will be back on the show circuit next year. The second class of females was a very strong class which at first glance looked quite daunting but an obvious winner caught my eye immediately in Williams Crystal’s Fleur from Williams Simmentals,

ROYAL SHOW REPORTS a very thick and powerful heifer. She had lovely character and style and was very correct on her legs. She went on to be my Junior Female & Overall Junior Champion. Second prize heifer, Sterling Celia’s Fi Fi from Boddington Estates, also had great style, just lacking the power of the first placed heifer. A great show cow, I’m sure for the future. This was my Reserve Junior Female. The third class of junior heifers was won by a thick AUROCH EVE - Reserve Supreme Champion, Reserve Female Champion & Senior Heifer Champion, 1st heifer from Avonfinch Ltd place Heifer, born on or between 01.01.13 and 31.03.13 at the English National Show, Royal Three Counties with Eaton Aristocrat Judy, just lacked the show presence of the heifers in the first two classes. Second was Denizes Beauty from Michael Barlow, a lovely heifer but the first prize just had the edge. The fourth class of heifers, I found the first two heifers very difficult to split but finally went for Ravensdale Flare 7th from M Hind, a nice stylish and very long, clean heifer. She was closely followed by Heathbrow Eleanor’s Star from Mrs Joanna Woodman. The fifth class of heifers was won by Michael Barlow with Auroch Eve, a tremendous long, clean heifer, width across the shoulders and width carried on all the way through with a great back end. My only fault with her was that she lacked STERLING FERDINAND 14 - Male Champion & Junior Male Champion, 1st place Bull, sparkle on the day but still went on to be born on or after 01.04.14 at the English National Show, Royal Three Counties my Reserve Female & Reserve Overall Champion. Second prize heifer was G Van der Gucht with Deerhurst Eunice, overpowered by my first prize heifer but still a very good quality heifer. The young cow class only had one entry from Boddington Estates with Sterling Grace’s Dynisty, a lovely young cow with plenty of character, size and a very nice udder making a great job of her calf at foot. The intermediate Cow class, again a very strong class of females but a very clear winner the moment she walked in the ring was Paul & Linda Gunther’s Fircovert Cecilia. A very well fleshed cow with tremendous depth and power which carried right through.

ROYAL SHOW REPORTS example of the breed. She went on to be my Female Champion and Overall Champion. Second was Sterling Petra’s Cairo from Boddington Estates, a big powerful cow with a very good young calf at foot but just not carrying the flesh of the first prize cow. The senior cow class was won by David and Lesley Sapsed’s Dirnanean Kitty 2nd a very fresh looking cow for her age and still showing all the good characteristics of the breed. Second was David Donnelly with Kilbride Farm Dora 34A, a lovely cow but slightly overpowered by the first prize cow. Again, showing great characteristics of the breed. Third prize in this class gets a special mention for James & Belinda Kimber who were showing Beanhill Pamela, a very fresh looking 12 year old cow. She is a great example of the longevity of the breed. The first Junior class of bulls was led by Boddington Estates with Sterling Ferdinand, an exceptionally long bull with good width across the shoulders and back and a great backend. He was very correct in his locomotion. He had a very masculine head and oozed character. He took my attention immediately and went on to be my Junior Male Champion and Male Champion. Second prize bull from Michael Barlow with Denizes Fitz, another tremendous bull but just lacked the style of the first bull. The winner of the second junior class of bulls was Heathbrow Freddie Star from David and Lesley Sapsed. A good strong bull with super character, plenty of width across the shoulders and good backend. This was my Reserve Junior Champion and Reserve Male Champion. Second Prize was from Broadreed Farm with Broadreed Ferdinand which lacked a little of the width across the shoulders compared to the first bull but had good backend and good locomotion. The intermediate class of bulls was won by David Donnelly with Hiltonstown Everest a very fleshy bull with great character. Second in the class was E T Jones & Son with Llwynmelyn Euan a good dark red bull just lacking fleshing quality of the first prize bull. The senior class of bulls had only one entry forward from Paul and Linda Gunther with Fircovert Chester a great looking working bull. In the pairs competition, Jimmy McMillan from Boddingtons very cleverly matched a pair to win first prize and the two animals were the best pair too!! Once again my thanks to the Society and Three Counties Show for giving me the honour of judging this prodigious event and most of all my thanks to the Stockmen and Stockwomen without whom this excellent show of cattle would not have been possible.

JUDGE: JOHN MOORE

efore starting my report, I wish to thank the British Simmental Cattle Society for nominating me, and the Royal Highland Agricultural Society for inviting me to judge the Simmental classes at the 2015 show. I was privileged and honoured to accept the invitation and really enjoyed the experience. My congratulations to all the exhibitors for bringing out such a number of quality stock for a wonderful show-case for the breed. The Junior heifer class was first and the winner here was Strathisla Foxy’s Mira, a thick fleshy heifer with a great head. Second place went to Chestermann Ringleader Lulu 3, a very stylish heifer just lacking the width and power of the first.

www.britishsimmental.co.uk

Third was Corskie Flare, a similar type to the second heifer. The leader in the second class was Corskie Furst-C, a stylish powerful heifer, just a little strong over her tail. Second was a well balanced heifer Overhill House Fanta and third Drumpark Rosebud 3rd who just lacked the power of the first two heifers. First in the next heifer class was Drumsleed Evita, an attractive fleshy heifer, who later went on to be Junior Female Champion. She was just starting to show some signs of over feeding at her tail head. Second was Garmouth Clovers Elderflower, a very stylish well balanced heifer, who went on to be my Reserve Junior Champion. A heifer with a bright future. Third was another stylish heifer

In second place was Drumsleed Adalucia, a similar type of animal but just lacking the scale of the first placed cow. The first placed Junior Bull was Blackford Findhorn, and he went on to be my Junior Champion and Junior Male Champion. He was the biggest and longest bull in the class, showing great growth, style and mobility. I am sure we will hear more from him in the future. In second place was Denizes Fitz, a super carcase bull with great width and end. He just moved a little stiffly and needed more exercise. Third place bull was Drumsleed Firebolt. Again a modern, well muscled bull with a great future, his

locomotion just let him down on the day. Auchorachan Facebook was first in the JanuaryMarch Young Bull class. A thick meaty bull with great legs and feet. His carcase kept him to the fore on the day. He went on to be my Reserve Junior Male Champion. A very close second was Skerrington Franklyn. This young bull was full of style and modern muscling. I am sure he will improve with age and be a good prospect for the bull sales. Third place Corskie First Caper, a young bull exhibiting good mobility and presence, just lacking the muscle of the first and second prize bulls. There was only one bull in the Intermediate Bull class Corskie Evander, a bull with scale and power. There were two entries in the Senior Bull class, but both were a credit to their owners and handlers, and they gave me probably the most difficult decision of the day to make. Both bulls had tremendous scale, width and power. Grangewood William was first, just beating Bel Dhu Capercaillie, having the edge on hindquarter development, and head. They went on to be my Male Champion and Reserve Male Champion. Finally I would like to thank and congratulate all the exhibitors at the show for braving the cold wind and making a great spectacle. My thanks to Rob Forrest and his stewards for their help. Can I also thank the Royal Highland Society and the Scottish Simmental Club for their excellent hospitality towards myself, Diane and Cara, giving us great memories of a very enjoyable day.

Newbiemains Elegance. The next class for heifers born in the final half of 2013, was an extremely impressive class. First was Auroch Eve, a tremendously powerful heifer with great bone and presence who went on to be my Female and Overall Breed Champion. Second was Corskie Emerald, a very stylish animal who caught my eye as soon as she entered the ring. Both these heifers should make great cows in the future. Third was Woodhall Erica, a very modern heifer just overpowered by the previous heifers. The Junior Cow and Heifer class was a difficult class to judge. First place went to Overhill House Dot Com, a quality young cow with a great calf at foot. Second went to Corskie Danya, a strong powerful heifer, with third to Kennox Tara’s Diva, a very nice young cow with a good calf, I am sure she has a bright future. The Intermediate Cow class was led by a tremendous young cow Skerrington Rhona 32nd. She went on to be my Reserve Female Champion. With great style and breed character, she was exhibited with a quality heifer calf at foot, and will go on to be a super breeder and show cow I am sure. In second place was Ranfurly Weikel 6th B2, another good young cow with plenty of character and quality, just lacked the overall power of the first cow. In third place was Corskie Cegem, a long mobile cow, she had just a little too much flesh at her tail head. Corskie We-Enna won the Senior Cow class, a big powerful cow on the day.

WILLIAMS CRYSTAL’S FLEUR - Supreme Champion & Female Champion and 1st Place Heifer, born on or after 01.01.14 at the Royal Welsh Show

Royal WELSH F JUDGE: MEIRION JONES

142

irst of all, I would like to thank the Royal Welsh show Society and also the British Simmental Cattle Society for inviting me to judge the Simmental classes at the 2015 Royal Welsh show. Having exhibited at this show myself for the last 30 years, it was now time for me to stand in the middle of the ring, instead of walking around it! It was both an honour and a privilege to be the first Welsh Man to judge The Simmental section, and one that will remain with me for a long time. A great turnout in the quality of cattle forward, however, the number forward for judging to me was very disappointing,

Show

especially as this is considered as one of the major livestock shows in the country. My first class of the day was the senior bull class, with only one entry. This 2 year old red bull was well grown, and had plenty of length and excellent locomotion and was a credit to the Jones family. My next class was a January 2014 bull class. First was Hayley Clarkes bull – Williams Fawkes. A well grown and well developed bull for his age, which walked very well indeed. He went on to be my Male Champion and Reserve Overall Champion. My second place went to Storersmith Fireball XL5, a bull with very good

conformation, but lacked the locomotion of my first placed bull. My third and fourth placed bulls were not as matured as my previous two. The April bull class was led by Williams Frederick, a good thick bull, with full hindquarters carrying down to the second thigh. He went on to be my Reserve Male Champion. Second place went to Hirwaun Fernando, a bull with good conformation, but not as mature as my first prize winner. My third prize went to Crown Finlay, the youngest bull in the class and gave away a lot of age. He was a well-developed bull for his age and I am sure he will grow on to be a very good bull. My fourth place bull was a finer boned bull, than my previous three bulls. I was disappointed not to see any breeding cows forward, as this is a very important element for the breed. My senior heifer winner was Williams Belle’s Elsie. A tremendous heifer, well grown for her age with excellent conformation. She excelled over my second place animal Lopemede Ebba exhibited by the Nicholas Family, in that she possessed more condition. My second place animal

however, I am sure will develop into a good breeding cow. My September heifer class with only one exhibit went to Banwy Hyacinth 1E. She was a very smart heifer, and showed herself very well indeed. My final class of the day was the January 2014, which was won by Hayley Clarke with Williams Crystal’s Fleur. This heifer possessed excellent conformation, and was very very smart. This animal ended up being my Overall Champion and Junior Champion. But a very very close second was Cwarre Cinderella’s Firefly. This again was a very smart heifer and ended up being Reserve Female Champion. My third place went to Storersmith Bubble’s Fizz. This heifer was a true female in type, very sweet, but lacked the condition of my previous two animals. May I thank everyone who exhibited and turned out such quality stock to be judged and I wish all exhibitors and exhibits well in the future. Diolch yn fawr i bawb a gwnaeth ymdrech i arddangos stoc o safon uchel iawn yn y sioe, ac dymunaf yn dda i’r oll arrddangoswyr. Diolch / Thankyou, Meirion Jones

It was a pleasure to see the quality of the animals forward, professionally groomed and presented - a credit to the stockpersons and breeders. Also a special thanks to stewards Tom Henderson and his daughter Shirley-Anne. I chose for my Overall Champion an outstanding cow, Skerrington Rhona 32nd with her superb heifer calf at foot from the Young family, which incidentally was later placed Overall Cattle and Overall Champion of the Show by two separate judges. My Reserve Female and Overall Reserve Champion went to an excellent in-calf

WELSH NATIONAL Show I JUDGE: IAIN GREEN

t was great a honour and privilege to be invited to judge the 5th Welsh National show at Pembrokeshire County Show. First, I would like to thank and congratulate all the breeders, exhibitors and stockpersons for their hard work and dedication throughout the showing season in promoting our breed and for putting forward a great show of quality cattle for me to judge, without all of you there would be no show of Simmental cattle. The first class was led by a very good long well-muscled bull Crugmelyn Elvis who went on to be my Male Champion later in the day. The second class was won by Banwy FormulaOne, a fleshy bull showing good breed character.

She showed herself very well along with making an excellent job of her calf at foot. She was a great working example of the breed with an excellent female head and character and went on to be my Female and Overall Champion on the day.

Focus on ONE OF OUR

Stockpersons BILLY KIRK

I

was born and brought up on a beef & sheep farm on the outskirts of Muirkirk, Ayrshire. On leaving school I briefly worked for a drainage contractor, then moved on to work on a large dairy farm for approximately 5 years. In January 1991 I started working for John Young, Skerrington Mains, Hurlford, looking after his beef & sheep unit at High Bowhill Farm, Newmilns. This is where I brought out my first Simmental bull. As the years progressed, I became stockman at “Skerrington Simmentals”. I have been married to Margaret for just over 27 years, we have one daughter, Lorna, who is married and has a wee boy, our grandson Harris, who is the apple of our eyes.

I

was born in Nottinghamshire where my Grandfather had a small holding. I grew up helping on the farm at weekends, holidays and the odd school day. After I finished school I worked on a beef, sheep and arable farm and then attended Brackenhurst College. When I left college I worked on local beef and sheep farms before moving to Severn Trent Farms where I looked after 600 head of dairy cattle. In 2006 I moved to Warwickshire to become stockman for Wroxall Simmentals. I have been married to Sally for 8 years and have three boys, George, Edward & Oliver.
