President’s Message F

irstly, I would like to say what a great honour it is to be President of a breed I love so much, and a formidable task to follow such a prestigious list of previous Presidents. My special thanks go to our retiring President, Robin Boyd, for the support he has shown to the Society and its members during his two years at the helm. My thanks and congratulations to all breeders who continue to take cattle to Stirling Sales on a regular basis; the bar seems to be raised higher sale on sale. In October 2018, 69 bulls averaged at £6187, up by £467, achieving 79% clearance. Well done - this is great for the breed. We continue to produce bulls more suitable to the needs of our customers, whilst still retaining the maternal traits no other breed can offer. I have always tried to attend all sales up and down the country, and the Worcester Sale continues to grow in strength. A big thank you to all the breeders who support it year on year. However, Carlisle still remains a challenge. For 2019, Carlisle will hold two spring sales, but no leading ladies sale. A huge thank you must also go to all the breeders who continue to support summer shows and events up and down the country. As we are all aware, post-Brexit is on the horizon, and it’s important to keep improving our market share and clearance rates. If we as breeders continue to improve the quality of our stock by relentlessly culling inferior animals, and breeding only from animals that carry superior breed characteristics, the breed will continue to move in the right direction. Next year is the 50th anniversary of the British Simmental Cattle Society, and your Chief Executive and his organising committee already have plans well in hand to celebrate this prestigious milestone. The venue at Carlisle market has been chosen, and we will hold a show and sale and a dinner, as well as farm open days. In 2020, all efforts will focus on the anniversary event, and there will be no national shows. I would like to ask all members to take part, and to put on a show of cattle which will be the envy of all other breeds. There is no need for me to remind members how very important quality of stock is for this event. Another major milestone to happen in 2019 is the relocation of the Society office. Sounds easy as we are only

moving next door, but this involves moving fifty years worth of documentation, and will cause a Neil and the ladies in the office a great deal of extra work and stress. I would like to ask all the members to be as supportive as they can during this time. Sue Walley has recently left, and I would like to thank her for her commitment to the Society, and wish her all the best for the future. Our young members stock judging finals last year were held in Northern Ireland. A huge thank you must go to the Robson family at Kilbride Farm for inviting us to see such an outstanding herd, and Richard Rodgers and family at Hiltonstown for hosting the stock judging finals and displaying another wonderful herd of cattle. Our appreciation goes to the office staff and Emma McInnes for arranging this event. I have hosted one of these events, and know just how much work goes in to making them successful. Young members find these events very interesting, and they are a great chance to meet breeders of their own age. The Council continues to look at young members and how to develop their skills within the Society. Recently, three young members attended a Future Leaders Course which they thoroughly enjoyed, and which led to them taking part in their own British beef promotion video. This was released before Christmas onto social media and the Society website. It was very well received and clocked up many thousands of views. May I conclude by giving my sincere thanks to all Council members, Neil and the office staff for their hard work and support. I would like to end this message by saying how fortunate we are to have such an enthusiastic Chief Executive, who looks after the Society’s interests as if they were his own.

BREED PROMOTION I n order to remain at the leading edge of breed and sale promotion, we have started using video to promote the breed and individual sales. Using a powerful brand, we can deliver a clear and bespoke message to commercial customers near and far. These video productions are timeless, and non-critical of other breeds and processes, the most recent production being a big push on the benefits of eating British red meat. We saw this as a means of giving our commercial customers a boost by promoting their produce. With regard to cost, these videos produce a much better return in terms of pence per view. We shall continue to advertise in the mainstream agricultural press, but adverts will be less in number, smaller in size and more targeted. This week’s press adverts are next week’s chip papers. These videos have predominantly been released on

social media – both Facebook and Twitter - and have been linked to the Society website and Youtube channel (Simm TV). Our target market of young commercial farmers are increasingly using social media and the internet to learn and source information about the industry. The social media platform is free to view for anyone with internet access, and a phone that doesn’t go clunk. Adverts in the mainstream agricultural press tend to require dipping into one’s pocket. A special mention to both Catherines at MacGregor photography for their ground breaking work in producing and launching the videos three months ahead of the original schedule. We are delighted to be industry leaders in the use of this type of advertising, and whilst we are sure other breeds will follow suit, everyone will remember who was first.

Answer to TB

I

25 006

n November 2018, DEFRA released a report reviewing the Government’s 25-year strategy with regard to Bovine Tuberculosis (TB). The review included major recommendations to help meet the challenge of preventing spread of the disease, and in particular for farmers to have a duty of care to protect their own livestock against the threat of TB. General diseases of cattle, such as BVD and IBR are relatively easy to manage and eradicate; the source of any infection can be culled, and a vaccination program put in place. Unfortunately, these choices are not available in the case of TB, and other options need to be considered. We farm in a high-risk area, and TB is in evidence in the

locality. Two years ago, we decided to take the bull by the horns, and look into what we could do to secure our cattle. First up was a detailed risk assessment. This was done by walking the land boundaries and looking for badger incursion; setts, latrines and runs. Whilst most of the fields showed no signs of incursion, a single field, set some four miles away from the farm, had evidence of badger activity. A search of the area located two setts within a mile of the field. Around this time, the TB Advisory Service (TBAS) were advertising for farmers in the high risk area to call on their services. We decided there was nothing to lose, and booked an appointment.

The TBAS identifies four main sources of infection; 1.

3.

4.

Brought-in cattle. This can be cattle which have been purchased at a market or privately, your own cattle which have left the holding for a show or those which return unsold from the market. Neighbouring cattle. However biosecure and health conscious you are, if your cattle have noseto-nose contact with other cattle, there’s a risk. Latent infection. The TB skin test does not have absolutely 100% detection rate, and animals can retain infection without reacting to a skin test. Wildlife. Be it from badgers, deer, alpacas, or other sources, there is no doubt that wildlife is a threat.

The TBAS spent some time looking round the farm, noting current biosecurity, hazards and TB history. They define biosecurity as measures, or a series of measures, which reduce the risk of disease; in livestock terms, this is based on the premise that prevention is better than cure. We were presented with a chart showing what percentage risk each of the categories above currently posed. In our case, we run a closed herd, and although we show cattle, they are always isolated and tested before rejoining the herd. We are largely bordered by roads, rivers and railways, and the only field with neighbouring cattle has a minimum 6 metre gap. At this time, we had one non-homebred animal in our herd, and although this had passed four years worth of TB testing, a 5% risk was allocated. Which left us with a whopping 95% of our risk being allocated to wildlife. It was very clear from this that the responsibility to protect our cattle from wildlife threat lay with us. We had

ur annual AGM and quiz night was once again held at Stratford cattle market albeit a little later in the year than usual due to the weather in February, prompting a postponement until March. This delay did reduce the numbers slightly as many were now calving and/or lambing, however an enjoyable night was had by all that attended.

It was very pleasing to see club members taking three of the top four prices at the Worcester sale in May. Congratulations to C.H Evans & Son on selling Wroxall Happy Chappy, for the day’s top price of 5000 guineas, to fellow club members C.M Mercer, for use in the Bowley herd. Other notable prices were achieved by John Rixon (Lopemede) and James Shouler (Alchester). The sale at Worcester in May continues to go from strength to strength and I anticipate the additional Autumn sale at Worcester in 2019 will be equally as successful. Unfortunately, the show season was very quiet for club members this year. We have seen the dispersal of a number of great herds who were very active on the show circuit over the last couple of years, and other members have elected to stay at home this year for a variety of reasons. Hopefully next year will see us out in force.

ROYAL SHOW REPORTS

After a busy show season in June and July, I attended an NFU co-ordinated event at East Merkland in early August, which was hosted very ably by the Dyet family. A

tremendous demonstration of stock was on show, and the work ethos of the whole family was plain to see.

The Spring Sales dominated through until May, where we attended the main NBA Beef event at Shrewsbury. As gold sponsors for both NBA events, we expected, and received, some excellent exposure for our money. Considering it was late in the season for purchasing breeding stock, our stand was very busy all day, and we received some very positive enquiries.

IBR POLICY GUIDELINES AND SALE RULES.

T

he BSCS has championed animal health very strongly in the past six years - highlighting health in breeding cattle has been at the forefront of all our advertising and promotional material. In 2010 and 2011, some resistance was encountered when rules were introduced requiring all vendors to be members of CHeCS-approved health schemes, and to be testing for Johnes and BVD. Time has proved this to be a game-changing decision. In the past seven years, we have the highest average price increases across all breeds and consistently have the highest clearance rates at the Stirling sales. Four times during this period we have sold more bulls than the Charolais, most recently at the February 18 sales, something that was never achieved in the so-called heydays of the 80s and 90s. Clearly this is not all down to health status – the cattle the breeders are producing and the marketing strategy have improved – these are all part of the ‘total package’ which is driving the breed forward. As a Society, IBR is the next logical disease to tackle, albeit with a full knowledge of the complexity of the disease. We feel it is a vital step for all members to discover what their individual IBR status is – you cannot manage it if you don’t measure. Whilst there are still a few AI centres that will purchase bulls from a market, the Society felt it was completely wrong to have all bulls tested and vaccinated, which removes the potential sale to AI centres from breeders. Between 80 and 90% of bulls sold at pedigree sales enter the commercial herd. There is no reason why these bulls should not undergo the same vaccination, quarantine and test protocol. In light of this, the decision was made to start with heifers only. A far higher percentage of heifers sold through Society sales remain in pedigree herds, and it was logical to protect the expanding or new herd. Whilst

010

www.britishsimmental.co.uk

we are aware we are not guaranteeing IBR-free cattle, we are reducing the risk, and this is to be encouraged. Moving forwards, this rule may be applied to bulls as well. Around 60% of heifers sold at Society sales will go to pedigree herds, and an IBR health requirement offers the best chance (although not a guarantee) that the animal is free from IBR and protected at the time of sale. The purchaser should seek comfort from purchasing stock that has been vaccinated with an inactivated marker vaccine, been blood tested clear of wild-type IBR, and has remained in quarantine since that date. The animal cannot be presented as IBR-free, but this is deemed the best course of action to minimise the risk of a purchaser buying IBR into his herd. For Society testing and vaccination requirements, a heifer remains so until she calves. The rule will therefore apply to all maiden and in-calf heifers. Infectious Bovine Rhinotracheitis (IBR) is a Bovine Herpes virus. As with all Herpes viruses, once an animal is infected, it remains so for life, despite the development of a detectable immune response. The virus survives as a latent infection in nervous tissue, and can be shed at any time, especially when the animal is stressed. Cattle are the main source of the virus; virtually all farms with an IBR problem have bought it in. The main source of the virus is not animals with disease, but animals that have recovered from the disease – those that are latently infected. You should not buy antibody positive cattle if you are IBR-free. Vaccination is an effective means of control, but this does not stop infected animals from shedding the virus at a later date. The aim of vaccination is to reduce the intensity and duration of the disease, and to reduce shedding of the virus. Vaccination will always be more


There are two main types of vaccine; live or inactivated (dead). Within each category, there are marker and nonmarker vaccines. A live vaccine is often used intra-nasally, or into the muscle. The intra-nasal route will ensure quicker protection, but the antibody levels are unlikely to be as high. As the virus is live, it can theoretically replicate in the animal and ‘infect’ unvaccinated animals. Inactivated vaccines are never given intra-nasally, and cannot replicate within the animal. Antibodies are generally high and long lasting. Marker vaccines were developed to allow differentiation between cattle that are vaccinated and those that have been exposed to wild-type virus. It’s impossible to differentiate the non-marker vaccines from natural exposure on a single blood sample. An animal vaccinated with a marker vaccine and exposed to wild-type virus will produce wild-type and vaccine antibodies. Antibodies to IBR can be passed to the calf via colostrum. This will have an impact on when calves are vaccinated, and blood samples taken from calves could be antibody-positive for a number of months.

The IBR vaccinated and monitored free programme

This is applicable to herds which cannot achieve full double fencing biosecurity requirements and demonstrates that the herd is operating a marker vaccination programme and is free from IBR infection based on gE antibody testing. It is a lower level of health status compared to IBR accredited free herds.  • With permitted exceptions all stock over 12 months old should be marker vaccinated for IBR. • Sale animals or animals for export or potential AI should NOT be marker vaccinated and the vaccination protocols should be discussed with your vet.  • Two herd tests are carried out between 4 weeks and 12 months apart • All animals over 12 months of age and nonhomebred animals younger than 12 months are eligible for testing • If these 2 herd tests are clear then the herd is accredited as vaccinated and monitored free.

IBR Accreditation Programme •

• • •

Review and upgrade herd biosecurity programme to meet the rules of the scheme (see rules summary or CHeCS technical document). Test all animals of twelve months and older and all non-homebred animals. Where all animals test negative this is a clear first qualifying herd test. The second qualifying test can be carried out 1-12 months later. A clear test at that time confirms accredited status. Annual testing is required to maintain accredited status. This is done on a statistically based sample from each group of animals over 12 months of age. Vaccinated animals can enter accredited herds, contact your CHeCS provider to confirm % of herd.

Sale rules regarding IBR

As of October 2016, all heifers need to be isolated at least seven days prior to testing clear and vaccinated with an IBR marker vaccine, an inactivated IBR vaccine is preferred to live vaccine. Test positive animals should be removed and the process repeated 14 days following removal of test positives. Isolation facilities as per CHeCS or own country government approved, Defra etc. Cattle vaccinated as young calves can still be isolated and tested for IBR wild type after vaccination, testing differentiates between marker vaccine and actual virus, a booster would then be required pre-sale. Testing timeline pre-sale as per CHeCS- less than 12 weeks. A heifer will be classed as such until the first calf is born. Non-marker vaccines will not be accepted. Entries from Accredited herds need only to be vaccinated. All vaccination dates and the type of vaccine used need to be clearly stated on your HHD. We accept and understand that this will not guarantee that cattle going through a market will remain IBR free but it is the first step in taking the breed ahead of the competition regarding IBR.

effective when used prior to exposure as prevention, rather than as control following infection. An assortment of vaccines, vaccine courses and routes of administration are available. There are separate indications for managing abortion and foetal infection with IBR, and also for calves younger than three months old. Please seek veterinary advice if this applies to your herd.


VOLUNTARY SEMEN TESTING INITIATIVE COMMENCING SPRING 2018.

T

o further promote the fertility of our breed, from 1st January 2018 any breeder selling (offering a bull for sale) at a Society sale which has been presale semen tested will receive £50 towards the cost of the test from the Society on receipt of a copy of the fertility report.

• The fertility report must include the individual animal’s UK number, and the full fertility report. • Photo copies of originals and electronic copies will be accepted. The purchase of a bull can be the most expensive individual livestock purchase a commercial farmer will make, and can have a serious negative impact on the profit of their herd if he proves infertile. It can also be a major reason for a purchaser not returning to an individual breeder or even breed.

Advantages;

• Comfort for both breeder and purchaser that the bull is fertile. • It will put Simmental breed ahead of other breeds. • Early identification of problem bulls • Reduces risk of expensive post sale claims • Can reduce insurance premiums.

FAQs on Semen testing;

• It’s only a snap shot on one day? Yes it is, but if he is fertile it confirms there is no fundamental issue affecting his fertility. • He could become infertile after the test? Yes, he could but the knowledge that he has been fertile gives confidence that any problems may be addressed, eg infection. • What if my best bull turns out infertile? It is better to find out pre-sale than after he has been sold. • It’s expensive? It’s a small investment adding value to your product. • Electro ejaculations doesn’t assess ability to serve? This is true but most infertility claims are due to semen quality. • My vets don’t do it? There are large number of vets and para-professionals that carry out the service that will be prepared to travel to you. • It doesn’t guarantee the semen will freeze? Correct but 90-95% of all bulls sold at Society Sales are purchased by commercial farmers to run and serve cows naturally. Testing timeline- ideally within 3 months of the sale, however 3-6 months is acceptable. Semen testing is not a warranty. It is a guarantee that on a given day, a bull was producing an acceptable quantity of viable semen with no defects capable of settling cows in calf. This voluntary initiative will run for a minimum of two years.

SIMMENTAL REVIEW 2018

ENTROPIES

E

ntropion is a condition where the eyelashes contact the surface of one or both eyes as a result of the eyelid turning in, most commonly noted in the lower lid. This can cause irritation and weeping of the eye followed by clouding, ulcers and ultimately blindness. There are various ways to define the condition. Primary entropion occurs where there is too much eyelid skin for the conformation of the skull and size of eyeball. Secondary entropion is as a result of another condition, such as dehydration or pain. Secondary entropion can also be defined as spastic entropion. It is caused where pain on the surface of the eye from a foreign body, such as straw, or from trauma such as a halter injury causes the defect. Primary entropion is clearly a genetic and heritable defect. Secondary entropion

is not necessarily a genetic defect but can be as a result of a genetic predisposition.  By the very nature of the Simmental breed - “large elastic eyelids, eyelashes are standing in-front of more elastic, thicker, frilled skin around the eyes”- there is a predisposition to the development of the condition. If it is likely that this can be passed on genetically then animals with this problem should not be retained for breeding. Surgical correction can be carried out to correct entropion provided the predisposing cause is also managed. This is appropriate to alleviate suffering in the animal but is not acceptable as a means to disguise the condition to allow a bull to be sold for breeding.

A

lthough not brought up on a farm, I have been interested in agriculture for as long as I can remember. Both my grandfathers were farmers, so livestock breeding is in my blood, and even though I was brought up in a country vicarage I always aspired to own my own small farm business. My father established the Omorga herd (Gaelic for Moore) in 1974 with a heifer from Bertie Watterson, a cow from Alexander Cameron and two heifers from a very young Bertie Houston in Donegal. The herd has grown over the years to 40 cows, and we try to breed clean, muscly cattle with commercial traits. Bulls and heifers are sold at home, but we also enjoy selling stock at Stirling and the local Club Sales. I studied Agriculture at Queen’s University Belfast, and now enjoy working full time for the College of Agriculture, Food and Rural Enterprise (CAFRE) in Northern Ireland. I manage an excellent young team of advisers who help to develop beef and sheep farmers in the province. I enjoy serving the BSCS Council, and have made good friends in this forum. I have been lucky enough to have judged our fantastic breed all over Britain and Ireland, and enjoy meeting new and old friends in this manner. In my youth I enjoyed playing rugby, but now just work or farm. I like travelling when I can and am also quite involved in our local church, and local Show committee. I am married to Diane and have one 17 year- old daughter Cara who enjoys cattle as well.

I

was born and brought up on a Dairy Farm in North Ayrshire, Scotland. At the age of 16, I left school to work on the family farm with my parents. My first interest in Simmental cattle came from helping my then neighbours, Alan & Janet Marshall (Silverhills). We moved to Newbie Mains, Annan, Dumfriesshire in 1993, where we built up a herd of Pedigree Holstein Friesian cows to over 200 head plus young stock. We classified, and milk recorded and through a lot of hard work and dedication we managed to achieve 2nd highest production herd on 2 X daily milking in Scotland 2002, at just under 11,000Kgs. It was in 2004 that we (I say we but I mean myself and Patricia my now wife!) started the ‘Newbiemains’ Simmental herd. Our first Simmental heifer was a gift from Patricia’s father Alex Ross (Monaduff Simmentals), Monaduff Rosebud. We continued by purchasing our type of females through sales in Scotland, England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Southern Ireland (not to discriminate!). I have had a lot of help and advice from many Simmental Breeders up and down the country but I have to say the late Hector Macaskill was a big inspiration for me. We are hoping to continue to take the Simmental Breed forward there is always room for improvement. With a little help from my sons (I have four!) Andrew, Robert, Niall and of course ‘’wee’’ Jim, we will continue to have a lot of fun and laughs along the way. We have been very fortunate to meet a lot of fantastic people through the breed and also make a lot of really good friends.

A message

FROM THE CEO - Neil Shand

T

he first week of 2018 saw the untimely passing of Hector Macaskill following an illness fought with courage and dignity. Hector was President of the Society when I joined, and guided the organisation through a turbulent couple of years with a calm and steely determination. He is credited with establishing the stability within the organisation that we now have. Those of us lucky enough to know him well were fully aware of his charisma, his honest determination to succeed and his continued efforts to improve his own herd. The success of the two Woodhall sales will ensure that Hector’s breeding lines will remain at the forefront of our breed for many years to come. He was a great telephone companion on late night drives as we discussed the merits of this bull and that bull, and the demise of Glasgow Rangers. A good friend lost, but never forgotten. The weather in 2018 was, to say the least, a challenge. The beast from the east provided us with some freezing weather resulting in late turnouts, followed by droughts which caused shortage of fodder crops. All this followed on from a winter when stocks were used up. It will take at least one more full season before the forage situation settles down, and we can only hope for more seasonal weather and less extremities in the forecast. The prime cattle trade has been affected by the amount of cheaper cow beef becoming available, as producers avoid keeping empty and unproductive cows through a second potentially expensive winter. Spring Sales in 2018 - Stirling excluded - were bumpy for all breeds, and last year was not the year to make major calls based on those trends. We continue to report our sale averages as bulls/females sold through the ring, unlike some of our major competitors. The Stirling October sale saw our second highest October sale average and a good clearance, with the Mendick Dispersal also hugely successful. The last five years have seen more dispersals and major reductions than would have been ideal, and these have a major impact on bull trade. It is a tremendous credit to the breeders that we have continued to hold our own considering the numbers of bull calves both at foot and inside cows that we have sold recently. The success of all these dispersals and reductions are clear testament to the demand for the breed. The quality of our cattle at sales continues to be very good, but we can, and should, always strive to improve further. Standing still in terms of quality would lead to us moving backwards in comparison to other breeds. There

018

www.britishsimmental.co.uk

has been a significant lift in the number of herds being classified this year, and it does no harm at all to have an independent critic cast their eye over your cattle. As a tool for increasing quality in your herd, classification is one of the most important areas to focus on. In the past 18 months, we have seen top commercial herds paying 15000gns and 18000gns for bulls at Stirling; confirmation that quality does pay. Looking ahead to 2019, we may see an outcome to Brexitbut then again, we may not! The resilience of agriculture and the need to feed the nation will help to ensure the stability of the beef industry in the long term. However, this is out of our control, and we should expect some small bumps along the way until everything settles down. Genomics remain a buzz word in our industry and we are keeping a very close eye on the potential benefits of DNA analysis and cattle performance. There are still misconceptions regarding genomics. Before they can be considered reliable, we need far more raw data to be collected- for example weights and scanning information. It is from this information that the genomic database is constructed. In the next 18 months, we will move offices and stage our 50th anniversary celebrations, two of the biggest single issues we will have dealt with as a breed office. As we work towards these events, we will strive to continue to offer the membership the best support we can. Wishing everyone a healthy and prosperous 2019.

The Spring Sales dominated through until May, where we attended the main NBA Beef event at Shrewsbury. As gold sponsors for both NBA events, we expected, and received, some excellent exposure for our money.

Although we do need to have a presence at an event in the south west, I have long campaigned that this event should be run every two years; the attendance figures simply do not justify an annual event.

BREED PROMOTION I n order to remain at the leading edge of breed and sale promotion, we have started using video to promote the breed and individual sales. Using a powerful brand, we can deliver a clear and bespoke message to commercial customers near and far. These video productions are timeless, and non-critical of other breeds and processes, the most recent production being a big push on the benefits of eating British red meat. We saw this as a means of giving our commercial customers a boost by promoting their produce. With regard to cost, these videos produce a much better return in terms of pence per view. We shall continue to advertise in the mainstream agricultural press, but adverts will be less in number, smaller in size and more targeted. This week’s press adverts are next week’s chip papers. These videos have predominantly been released on

social media – both Facebook and Twitter - and have been linked to the Society website and Youtube channel (Simm TV). Our target market of young commercial farmers are increasingly using social media and the internet to learn and source information about the industry. The social media platform is free to view for anyone with internet access, and a phone that doesn’t go clunk. Adverts in the mainstream agricultural press tend to require dipping into one’s pocket. A special mention to both Catherines at MacGregor photography for their ground breaking work in producing and launching the videos three months ahead of the original schedule. We are delighted to be industry leaders in the use of this type of advertising, and whilst we are sure other breeds will follow suit, everyone will remember who was first.

A group of us all met at Stansted A gathering of Simmental folk The weather exceedingly temperate So hot, almost beyond a joke Apart from a bit of a drama A threesome just might miss the plane They arrived, a bit flustered and breathless Muttering ‘something was really a pain!’ Calm ensued, we landed at Aarhus Then coached through Danish countryside To the Herd of Jensen Hendrik Kvist With a stock bull, ex AI bull ‘Guide’ Hendrik’s day job a busy ‘rat catcher’ His strong cows looked well in the dust We had lunch and then off to our Hotel Where a cold shower was really a must! We had a wonderful dinner with Henning Who gave us an informative talk Then a certain few went off to the bars

And others enjoyed a quiet walk First visit, day two, to Brian Anderson Their Canadian Embryo bull ‘Fidal Lexus’ used Good cows, then to see Henning’s cattle Super lunch and Schnapps kept us amused! We were then off to visit ‘the Dentist’

But stopped at a beach on the way 40k long and quite lovely, we paddled The North Sea was so warm I must say Stewart’s handkerchief, knotted, his new head gear! Like a typical Brit when abroad He had us laughing like fools at his antics Then to the coach where we climbed back aboard The Dentist’s herd, Stenbakken, was outstanding Big easy fleshing long cows we admired Bull ‘Linde General’ and ‘Stenbakken Krole’ looked well With good calves that both of them sired We went back to the Home of dear Henning For a dinner under the shade of his trees Such wonderful kind hospitality Special memories made from times as these

You will be familiar with some of the herd names we visited during the trip, Birkegaard Simmental, Lykke Simmental, Stenbakken Simmental, Rosa Simmental, Fedal Simmental, Langmose Simmental, Linde Simmental. Our sincere thanks go to Henning for organising the trip; all the herds that kindly welcomed us, and the outstanding hospitality that everyone provided.

Next day to the wellknown herd ‘Lykke’ Where their show animals still happily grazed A feast for our eyes of fine cattle The size of their heifers left us amazed Langmose next, fine cattle and welcome ice cream Then picnic at a stunning Fjord which was hot Last herd ‘Linde’ cows and calves to be seen We chatted with the family in their lovely spot In evening a fabulous BBQ dinner Sat around a long table was fun Lots of laughs and then in the bar till quite late Our wonderful trip almost done The final day at the show was terrific Mr Donnelly had a big task ahead Judging an amazing array of fine cattle He got the job right people said!

A Farming Family’s

Commitment to Suckler Beef Production Recognised

030

www.britishsimmental.co.uk


SIMMENTAL REVIEW 2018

A

desire to build their business has seen Aberdeenshire beef farmers Gary and Angela Christie push cow numbers in their suckler herd in readiness for their son Adam joining the business in future. The dedication of the family, who farm at Midtown of Glass near Huntly, was recognised recently when they were announced finalists in this year’s AgriScot Scotch Beef Farm of the Year Award. The aim of the award, run by AgriScot and Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) and sponsored by Thorntons Solicitors, is to showcase excellence in the production of cattle in Scotland, and to raise the profile of the dedication and stock management skills behind the production of Scotch Beef PGI.

The family run a pure Simmental and Simmental cross suckler herd on their 157-hectare farm. They operate split calving, with 100 cows calving in spring and the remaining 35 in autumn. Gary Christie commented: “The split calving suits both labour and housing availability and means we can always have cattle to sell, which helps to manage the cashflow throughout the year.” In recent years, the family have also developed a successful pedigree Simmental herd that they manage alongside the commercial herd. Having only started to sell pedigree bulls in 2016, they have achieved top prices of 14,000gns and 13,000gns as well as a Reserve Overall Simmental Championship Title at UA Stirling in October 2017.

www.britishsimmental.co.uk

“The pedigree bulls have exceeded our expectations in such a short time and it has added another valuable income stream to the business,” explained Mr Christie. While the Christies clearly gain enjoyment and satisfaction from their pedigree cattle, the focus is undoubtedly on maximising profit and efficiency in the commercial herd. “Heifers are calved at two years old which gives us a quicker return financially. Keeping heifers an extra year on the farm without a calf is not cost effective. We also find heifers are easier calved at two years old and they have a better milking ability.” A ten-week calving period for the spring calving herd begins in the third week of March and all spring calving is finished by the end of May. Cows and calves are turned out to grass around mid-May, depending on the grass cover and weather. Mr Christie explained: “The heifer and bull calves are run in separate lots once they are turned out. Creep feed is introduced to the bull calves around midJuly and to the heifers mid-August. Cows and calves are grazed throughout the summer and housed around the beginning of November and calves are weaned three weeks to a month later. When taken in for the winter, cows and youngstock are fed a total mixed ration which is made up for us by SAC after the forage analysis is done.”

032

Weaning is delayed until there is a good cold snap to help reduce the chances of pneumonia developing in the calves. “By weaning this way we rarely see issues with pneumonia and do not find it necessary to vaccinate calves as a result,” said Mr Christie. Health status is an important factor and the farm has been a member of the Hi-Health Scheme since 2007. The herd has been BVD accredited since 2009 and achieved Johnes Level 1 in 2014. Cows are vaccinated against BVD, Leptospirosis and Rotavirus. The family also routinely select and test 12 yearlings from the group for IBR each year and have never yet had an animal test positive. Post weaning, calves remain split by sex with the bull calves taken through to finishing as entire bulls at 12-15 months at 400-420kg deadweight. Mr Christie said: “To maximise carcase values we aim to get as close to the weight limits as we can without going over. Bulls are weighed every three weeks in the finishing period and are selected when they meet the correct specifications.” He added: “We find selling deadweight to be the best option for us, particularly when selling prime bulls. We value the feedback we get from the abattoir on our cattle and regularly speak with procurement staff to ensure we are producing cattle that meet their requirements.” The Christies keep some of their heifers as replacements, and the rest are sold to other suckler herds for breeding. “There is always good demand for these and they are sold privately to regular customers. Heifers which are not suitable for breeding are finished on the farm” said Mr Christie. All herd records are maintained using a software package, and the recording of births, movements, deaths and weights on the system gives them a clear picture of herd performance at any given point in time. All stock bulls are checked by a vet annually and are semen tested to ensure that the bulls are fertile and healthy when they are turned out with the cows. In a bid to maximise profits further Gary and Angela have recently begun using digestate from a local anaerobic digester as fertiliser for their grassland with a predicted saving of 75% on annual fertiliser costs. “This is just one of a number of

innovative measures we have introduced to reduce our costs wherever we can. Another is to finish male calves as prime bulls rather than steers which will save approximately one tonne of feed barley per head,” said Mr Christie. He added: “Both this and the fertiliser saving will help reduce the environmental impact of our beef enterprise. Participation in the Beef Efficiency Scheme also helps us to focus on the decisions being made.”

In recent years, the Christies have invested in modern buildings for cattle housing and feed storage, and have also purchased an additional 40 hectares to allow for expansion of the business in the future. The family is undoubtedly committed to a future in beef farming and are developing their herd to be as efficient, profitable and sustainable as it can be for future generations.

Answer to TB

I

n November 2018, DEFRA released a report reviewing the Government’s 25-year strategy with regard to Bovine Tuberculosis (TB). The review included major recommendations to help meet the challenge of preventing spread of the disease, and in particular for farmers to have a duty of care to protect their own livestock against the threat of TB. General diseases of cattle, such as BVD and IBR are relatively easy to manage and eradicate; the source of any infection can be culled, and a vaccination program put in place. Unfortunately, these choices are not available in the case of TB, and other options need to be considered. We farm in a high-risk area, and TB is in evidence in the

locality. Two years ago, we decided to take the bull by the horns, and look into what we could do to secure our cattle. First up was a detailed risk assessment. This was done by walking the land boundaries and looking for badger incursion; setts, latrines and runs. Whilst most of the fields showed no signs of incursion, a single field, set some four miles away from the farm, had evidence of badger activity. A search of the area located two setts within a mile of the field. Around this time, the TB Advisory Service (TBAS) were advertising for farmers in the high risk area to call on their services. We decided there was nothing to lose, and booked an appointment.

The TBAS identifies four main sources of infection; 1. Brought-in cattle. This can be cattle which have been purchased at a market or privately, your own cattle which have left the holding for a show or those which return unsold from the market. 2. Neighbouring cattle. However biosecure and health conscious you are, if your cattle have noseto-nose contact with other cattle, there’s a risk. 3. Latent infection. The TB skin test does not have absolutely 100% detection rate, and animals can retain infection without reacting to a skin test. 4. Wildlife. Be it from badgers, deer, alpacas, or other sources, there is no doubt that wildlife is a threat. The TBAS spent some time looking round the farm, noting current biosecurity, hazards and TB history. They define biosecurity as measures, or a series of measures, which reduce the risk of disease; in livestock terms, this is based on the premise that prevention is better than cure. We were presented with a chart showing what percentage risk each of the categories above currently posed. In our case, we run a closed herd, and although we show cattle, they are always isolated and tested before rejoining the herd. We are largely bordered by roads, rivers and railways, and the only field with neighbouring cattle has a minimum 6 metre gap. At this time, we had one non-homebred animal in our herd, and although this had passed four years worth of TB testing, a 5% risk was allocated. Which left us with a whopping 95% of our risk being allocated to wildlife. It was very clear from this that the responsibility to protect our cattle from wildlife threat lay with us. We had

spent several years vaccinating and testing to achieve elite accreditation, so it seemed imperative that we use any means necessary to protect against the threat of TB. TBAS recommend a five point plan, which we followed religiously. Having some of the recommendations in place already – for example fencing off all watercourses – we set about the remainder of the list, following the advice from TBAS of ‘majoring on the major, and minoring on the minor’. The major issue to us was obviously the wildlife concern, and in particular the local badger population. Restrict wildlife access. Providing the setts are outside the field boundaries, the easiest way to prevent badger-tocattle contact is to prevent badgers from accessing grazing land. Fortunately for us, our fields do not contain any setts, and we looked at prevention of access by a combination of fencing, closing gaps and sheeting gates. The original plan was to dig fences down into the ground to prevent access, but we were informed that strategically placed electric fence would be a much more effective deterrent. The fence has to be spaced at 10cm, 15cm, 20cm and 30cm from the ground. The boundaries of the land are very uneven, and we used fence stakes to pull the wire down where required. Where there was evidence of badger entry points, an extra strand was put in place at 40cm. All gaps need to be less than 7.5cm, and gates were covered

with galvanised sheeting. For extra security, concrete can be laid under gateways, but our gateways are fairly hard standing and this wasn’t considered necessary. We thought it might not be the best idea to run high voltage wires around the edges of the catching pens, so this was done with sheeting too. Maintenance of the fence is imperative to ensure it is working to its full potential. Two of our fields are mains fenced, one is on a battery fencer. They are checked daily using a hand-held fence tester, (or occasionally on someone’s legs) and once a week the fence perimeters are walked so short-outs can be heard, located and rectified, and any evidence of incursion can be spotted. Once every few months or when needed, the boundaries are strimmed to keep the grass down. Manage feed and water. Although our risk assessment showed absolutely no evidence of badgers at the farm, we decided that many of the recommendations would be great practice. These mainly involved preventing wildlife access to anything consumed by the cattle. Feed and water troughs have been raised, and are cleaned out and disinfected regularly. We mix and roll our own feed, so grain bins have been fitted with removable secure lids. The shed has had metal roller shutter doors fitted, and all entry gaps have been sealed. The personnel door has been


Neighbouring cattle. Reducing the risk from your neighbour’s animals is imperative. All your precautions are worth very little if the less-than-careful next-door neighbour’s playful limmy crosses can achieve nose-tonose contact with your animals. Fortunately, the vast majority of our land is very isolated from other livestock, either because of its location or because of boundaries with roads, rivers or railways. Where there is neighbouring cattle, the fencing gap exceeds 6 metres due to stone pathways, although 3m is considered adequate. There is no shared grazing with either other cattle or other species. Stop infected cattle entering the herd. This doesn’t just cover the risk from dodgy Dave’s mongrel crosses purchased from the market, but also from returning cattle, either unsold from market or returning from shows. We have a closed herd, and use AI, so have no risk from bought-in cattle. Our show animals are kept separate for the season in the isolation unit and garden paddock, and then tested after a suitable interval before rejoining the herd.

set up. There is a permanent foot dip, and everyone is asked to use it before visiting the cattle. All areas are kept clean and tidy, and equipment is cleaned after use. The cattle sheds are cleaned out regularly, disinfected and are painted annually by the person who has the lowest summer workload.... Although we may initially have been sceptical about how successfully an electric fence could prevent badger access, it really has worked. A bi-annual risk assessment of the field with previous badger activity has shown no sign of unwanted visitors at all. Our key performance indicator is a small allotment fenced carefully into one corner. For seven long years, the allotment owner has cursed and vilified our black and white furry friends as his attempts to grow maize for his table have been scuppered. Post electric fence, the maize has thrived, and harvest has been celebrated in all quarters, both with great tasting sweetcorn and with continuing clear annual TB tests which are against the general experience in the area.

Minimise infection from manure. The M.bovis bacteria has been shown to survive in muck for up to six months. It is killed by sunlight, so storing outside will ensure it is quickly destroyed. The site of the muck heap should be fenced off from cattle with electric fence, away from drains and on flat land. We have allocated an area of one field for muck storage, which has been fenced off. The muck is stored in rotation from year to year – pretty much like stock rotation at the supermarket - so we know which is ready to be spread. Spreading muck from other farms and using external equipment is a high risk game, and to be avoided. General housekeeping. Aside from the recommendations of the TBAS, there are some basic but obvious measures that are in place. Boots and outer clothing are kept clean, and external taps and a wash station have been

secured with a self-closing unit. We feed a TMR, and clamp silage is used. The danger from our grass silage is minimal, but we keep it well covered and tidy. Our watercourses are all fenced off, and a bridge connects adjoining parts of one field that is split in two.

hat a privilege it is to write a few lines in the Simmental Journal.

It is now some 3 years since the Simmental Cattle Society ventured into Type Classification. I was fairly confident the scheme would be a success, one of the reasons being that all Simmental breeders that were in dairying before they went into beef were in favour of classifying because they knew the advantages it would bring to the breed. The scheme certainly identifies the strengths and weaknesses in your cows. If you make use of all the information that is available after your herd is classified, then you will find it is a great advantage to help you in selecting bulls in AI or purchasing a stock bull. The last year has certainly seen a number of new herds coming on board. The more cows that are scored the better because it will give a clearer picture of the quality of cows around the country. As a team of classifiers, we are very impressed with what we are seeing, the milking ability of the Simmental cow and the way she feeds her calf. As breeders you are to be congratulated! I think legs & feet are the main traits that some breeders need to be careful and concentrate on, certainly when buying stock bulls. If any of your clubs or a group of individuals ever want a talk or have a demo on a farm (which is better than a talk) then just let us know. Good luck to you all and keep breeding good cows.

IVP: cost effective and welfare friendly

I

n-Vitro embryo Production (IVP) is proving to be a cost-effective welfare friendly service for an expanding number of pedigree beef breeders. Offered by specialist artificial breeding technology company AB Europe, the process combines donor oocyte (eggs) collection, maturation and fertilisation, followed by a culture period and then either transfer or freezing of subsequent embryos. AB Europe vet, Gavin Tait outlines what pedigree breeders can expect. • The IVP process is currently averaging approximately 10 oocytes (unfertilized eggs) per donor.
 • IVP averages two to three embryos per donor each collection depending on cow, management and season. • Collections can be done every week, compared to MOET flushing where a collection occurs once a month. 
 • We can collect from a cow in around 15 minutes setting up takes most of the time, so it’s a relatively quick process. 
 • Multiple bulls can be used over one donor depending on oocyte numbers. 
 • Collections can be done four weeks post calving, and with pregnant donors up to 12 weeks of gestation. 
 • There is no line up programme or need for drug use or FSH in the donors who tend to get back in calf very easily. 
 • Some cows are consistently producing four or more embryos every week, others will produce between one and two. Occasionally we also will produce 12 or more usable embryos in one week. Cows tend to be consistent in the number of oocytes / embryos they produce each week it is possible to select high yielders. 
 • Semen is vital to the programme’s success. Once we identify a batch which works well, it will tend to do so consistently, and vice versa. We may be able to help advise on ‘good’ or ‘bad’ batches of semen based on previous Gavin Tait experience.

Robert Macgregor is amongst a growing number of Simmental breeders who are successfully using IVP to exploit some of their herd’s best genetics. So far, he has implanted 10 embryos resulting in four live calves by Team Celtic 11 - three bulls and one heifer, and he says he found the process to be simple, welfare friendly and cost effective. “IVP was very straight forward. No prep was required, no drugs, no line up, no stress. We simply brought the two cows in from the paddock, Gavin turned up and the job was done within 60 minutes. The collection resulted in 35 oocytes in total; we used three different bulls. The overall result was 11 embryos; we froze them until the recipients were ready; we implanted in 10 heifers and achieved the four calves.” Robert says IVP’s advanced technology is enabling him to draw on some of the best Simmentals from his Team herd of 70 breeding females based at Kirkton of Mailer, Perth. “Team Misty 5 was one of the two donors; she is amongst the best females I’ve bred since I established the herd 30 years ago - she is within the breed’s top 5%, a Royal Highland reserve junior interbreed champion and one of her bull calves made 5,000gns. A point came when she wouldn’t hold, I tried MOET which proved to be unsuccessful, and she was ready to go away when I heard about and moved on to IVP. “The two bulls we used over the collection included Team Celtic 11 who is also within the breed’s top 1% and trait leader for 200, 400 and 600 day weights; we sold him to Wolfstar for 11,000gns in 2012, and Celtic’s first eight sons sold at auction averaged 10,500gns. “The three IVP bulls by Team Celtic 11 are scheduled for Stirling in 2019, and we anticipate there will be considerable interest.” He adds: “Overall, the project has been such a success, we have had no hesitation agreeing to take a second collection from Misty in 2019.”

was asked by Neil Shand if we would be prepared to invite some Simmental breeders from overseas to Dargill for a farm visit. In October 2016, we welcomed around 20 visitors from the Azores to the farm. Fortunately, two of their number could speak better English than I could speak Portuguese, so Jenna Pereira and Maria Simas were able to translate for us. The aim of their visit was to look at our stock to see how the British Simmental differed from their cattle, and to compare different practices. As the visit went on, it became clear that some were interested in buying cattle for export. In February 2017, 12 heifers and two young bulls were sent on an epic adventure to the Azores. The journey took twelve days by road and sea; we were kept up to date with photos of their journey along the way. I kept in touch with Jenna and Maria on social media; it was interesting to see news of how the animals were settling in. In time, Evelyn and I were invited to visit the Azores to see the progress of the animals for ourselves. In July 2018, we travelled to our base on Sao Miguel island and stayed in Ponta Delgada for two weeks. There are nine islands in the Azores, so there was

www.britishsimmental.co.uk

plenty of island hopping to enable me to see all the cattle. On Monday morning, I left for Pico, and stayed in a B & B for the week. I was met by Jenna, who gave me a tour round the island, and we then caught up with Maria to plan our schedule. Tuesday morning saw a ferry ride to Faial Island, where we were met by our guide for the day. Most of the cattle on this island are tethered and they looked in good condition. The first two heifers I saw had calved. Unfortunately Feltra had lost her calves at birth, but Gemma had a heifer calf at foot, and I was very impressed. We then went on to see a heifer from Overhill House herd, and a young bull from Dargill. The bull had been used on the cattle as soon as he arrived, so he had not grown on in the way I was expecting, but he had lots of good calves running round. At this point, I realised that an open mind on the differences in farming practice in the two countries was required. I should stress that they do not feed concentrates to their cattle as it is so expensive to buy; cattle are fed on maize silage in the winter, and kept outside. Before we headed back to Pico, our guide took us on a trip to see a

drop me off with Maria. She was involved in organising her local cattle show, and would catch up with us later in the day. Maria’s husband Jose, is very proud of his herd of Simmental, Charolais and Limousin cattle, which are grazed up in the mountains all over the island. Maria and Jose spend their days going from one side of Pico to the other, crossing over mountains, covering a large distance to see their cattle. The cattle themselves were in good condition considering the dry climate, and there was a very good bull calf which they were considering keeping for breeding. The three islands are all different in landscape and farming practices. Farmers on Faial appeared to have smaller pieces of land, hence the cattle were tethered. They seemed to have more grass than arable, but it was still very fertile. Sao Jorge was more like our own landscape, with the added bonus of grass that grows all year round. Pico was a large mountain covered with ash with a small covering of earth, and appeared to have the most difficult conditions in which to raise cattle. A group of us talked at length about how to improve the breed out there. The islanders are fully aware that improvements need to be made, and are talking about coming back to the UK in the future. I would like to thank Jenna and Maria for all their hard work and organisation, and to everyone who took the time to meet with me during my visit. Your hospitality was second to none.

Faial Harbour

volcano that last erupted in 1957. It had been turned into a museum, and was very educational and interesting. On Wednesday morning, we took the ferry to the longest island, Sao Jorge. We were met by Jorge Rocha, who has 60 dairy cows and who bought five heifers. We left the ferry for his farm, calling in to a friend of his on the way. He has a small herd of Limousin cattle, which were very impressive. We headed off to view Jorge’s dairy herd, which were not as tall as our Holsteins, but good cattle just the same. Lunch was at Jorge’s house; I have never seen so much food on the table to feed ten people – I wish I had taken a photo! After lunch, we headed off to see his suckler herd, and his pure Simmentals, which looked very impressive. His cattle were not tethered, although the occasional young bull was. We were also taken on a tour of the island; we headed down a road on the side of a cliff, and ended up burning out the brakes on the car. This didn’t seem to concern Jorge, we just carried on to the dairy factory where they produce a special cheese you can only find on the island. We returned to finish off lunch, to which Jorge’s wife had added two more main dishes and two more puddings! The tremendous food really does deserve a special thank you! Full of food, we headed back for the ferry, by which time it was almost dark. Thursday was a later start, so I decided to have breakfast at the B & B. Banana and honey with cold rice pudding was not what I had expected, but it tasted very good. Early afternoon, I was picked up by Jenna to look at our other bull, who was at the farm of Jose Silva. He had bought the bull to run with some females that he had imported from Southern Ireland. This bull had not been used as quickly, and had grown on to a larger size; some of his calves on the ground looked very promising. Some of the breeders had been sent in the wrong genetic direction, and, as a result, the cows were lacking milk. Jenna took me to see some of the feed lots that the family run, and they explained that there were only two main buyers of meat on the islands, therefore pricing is almost fixed by the purchasing groups. All males are kept entire, and killed for veal at 10 months of age. The remainder of the meat, including steaks, are from females over the age of three, which would normally have had a calf first. On Friday morning, Jenna arrived early to


RED OAK SIMMENTALS AT

ack in August we attended Countryfile Live with some of our cattle - Grace and her calf James Bond, Elizabeth our pet Simmy X heifer and Mayflower, a pedigree Red Angus. We were in the Passion for Farming/Adam’s Farm Area, which gives the public the chance to see livestock up close and ask us questions about what we do and about our animals. The idea of the Ask the Farmer section is to get real life farmers talking directly to members of the public and answering all their questions. Countryfile Live is held at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire. It is not an agricultural show, and is not advertised as one, and is attended by all the BBC

Countryfile Team plus some other famous faces. The event attracts over 120,000 people over 4 days; most of these are not from the farming community, and for some it is the first time they have seen livestock up close. The look on some people’s faces when they see how big the cattle are is a picture, it’s even better when they get to touch them! We showed our cattle in the ring, and held question and answer sessions with the public, covering everything from the breed to the show stick. Once a day I was also involved in a question and answer session with a vet from Hook Norton Vets. I took a cow out into the ring and we discussed everything from dog control and poo issues, health of the animals, the use of new

technology, including my thermal imaging cameras, and we even treated two calves who had the start of poorly eyes due to fly strike. We also had Jack Walton carry out a fake auction each day to show how pedigree cattle are sold; Grace reached just below £200,000 at one of the auctions (if only!) Some of the questions and comments we were getting were: What is a Simmental and where is it from? I didn’t know they were so big! How does using embryos work? What does a X animal mean? And the best of all - How do you tell a heifer from a bullock?!   Many farmers are not fans of the BBC and the program Countryfile (me included on the BBC) but this event is the only one I know of where the majority of the people are not from farming backgrounds. This was my second year; last year I met the Waker family and helped to get Alfie started on his road in agriculture. Since introducing him to the Aberdeen Angus youth development program he has gone from strength to strength and now his brother Charlie is also starting to get involved. I still see them when I can and am in regular contact with them. This year I met another family who luckily live close to me; it was their daughter’s dream to milk a cow, so for her 18th birthday I arranged for her to go to a friend’s dairy farm and milk a cow. Throughout the 4 days, we talked to hundreds of people about what we do and how we care for our animals. With the large amount of focus currently centred on the vegan movement, and negative content on social media, it is good to be able to spread positive news. This event really does give us the chance to shout about how good we are at what we do to the end user. I was interviewed by local radio and said “it does not matter if you buy a burger from McDonalds or steak from Tesco, without the general public on board with us we have no customer”.  In 2019 there are going to be two events, one in Oxfordshire and the other in Yorkshire. I will be there again next year and it would be good if we could perhaps get the Society and more members involved? Although very tiring, it is a cracking event to be involved with and at the end of the day you only need one Alfie a year to make it worthwhile!!

PCHS NEWS Premium Cattle Health Scheme

Conflicting Test Results for Johne’s Disease It is not uncommon to have an animal that tests blood antibody positive for Johne’s Disease and then when followed up with a faecal culture or PCR test, the results are negative. Under CHeCS rules a herd can maintain or even improve its risk level status from the faecal culture/ PCR results, but what do you do with the individual positive animal? Always bear in mind that the blood test positive identifies that the animal is high risk and that the Johne’s bacteria can be intermittently shed in the faeces. Our general advice is that these animals are considered high risk and should be isolated and then removed from the herd. For high genetic merit animals, embryo transfer or ova pick up techniques remain an option to preserve specific genetic lines. If you wish to discuss specific scenarios, please discuss this with your PCHS vet.

Bovela Vaccine for BVD You may be aware of the new Bovela vaccine for BVD which is now on the market, which is a live double deleted (L2D) vaccine. Due to its live attenuated nature, the strong immune response results in a significantly higher antibody level than with use of killed vaccines. This has some implications for diagnostic and herd screening testing which can be easily managed in the following ways: •

Check testing can still be performed as recommended from nine months of age, with the reminder that vaccination must be performed after the check test has been carried out • Farms that want to use Bovela from three months of age for young stock protection can also achieve CHeCS accreditation by tissue tagging and testing every calf born • It is recommended that antigen screening in blood or milk is carried out prior to vaccination or a minimum of 21 days after vaccination • If using bulk milk PCR testing it is advised to test prior to vaccination or after 21 days • Bulk milk antibody testing will remain strongly positive in Bovela vaccinated herds and will not be a reliable testing method going forward If you have any further questions on testing options please contact the lab to discuss further.

Online Members Database Are you familiar with the online PCHS members database? This is an invaluable tool for all of our health scheme members looking to source accredited stock. Accessed through www.cattlehealth.co.uk, the database can be sorted by county, by breed or by members’ surname. The database shows a full list of all our members who have given their consent to have their details shared online – if you find that you aren’t on there and you would like to be then please contact us. The information displayed for each member includes their name, address, telephone number, breed of cattle and their separate accreditation status and certification dates for BVD, Johne’s Disease, IBR and Leptospirosis. This is a great way to either find animals that match your own herd’s accreditation status or market your own livestock to potential buyers.

SIMMENTAL REVIEW 2018

Working together to eradicate BVD in the UK Wales

Gwaredu BVD — Bovine Viral Diarrhoea Eradication The Welsh Eradication Programme is a three year industry led voluntary scheme launched in September 2017 and is financed by the Welsh Government. It is designed to fit around TB testing. The vet takes 5 blood samples from each group of animals 9 – 18 months old. The results and next steps are then discussed with the vet at the reading of the TB test. The initial blood sampling is free and if any results come back positive then the farmer will be supported up to the value of £500 to conduct a PI hunt. There has been a positive response with 5000 farms in Wales (40%) taking up this opportunity. The project is running for 3 years. The programme will launch an online educational package, a trading database and an online biosecurity package during 2018. PCHS members in Wales should not have to pay for their screening test while the project is running. If you have any questions about ‘Gwaredu BVD’, please contact Gelli Aur: Tel: 01554 748576 Email: GwareduBVD@colegsirgar.ac.uk

Scotland

Scottish BVD eradication scheme The scheme was launched in September 2010 and kickstarted by 4000 herds taking advantage of subsidised screening from Scottish Government – £36 for testing and £72 for a PI hunt. This was followed by mandatory screening in Phase 2 and Control Measures in Phase 3. Now at Phase 4 it includes enhanced testing and movement restrictions introduced from 1st June 2015. Keepers of breeding herds of cattle in Scotland must have their herds screened every year by either check testing to determine BVD exposure or testing all calves born on the holding for virus. Non-breeding herds must test all calves born on the holding before they are 40 days old. Farmers are required to test replacement animals from untested herds; movement restrictions are imposed on “not negative” herds and there is a ban on knowingly moving BVDV infected cattle. The scheme currently involves 11,300 herds representing 1.7 million cattle. Approved labs send results to a national database www.scoteid.com Phase 5 is being introduced early 2019 with increased pressure on ‘not negative’ and ‘positive’ herds.

England

BVDFree England This is a voluntary industry-led scheme aiming to identify and remove all persistently infected (PI) animals from the English cattle herd by 2022. The scheme is built around a national database (www.bvdfree.org.uk) which is searchable for the BVD status of individual animals and herds tested under the scheme. Famers must register with BVDFree to enable their herds’ BVD test results to be uploaded to the database and there is a small charge for this. Individual animal BVD status can be found by entering a UK tag number or a herd’s BVD status can be found using the CPH number. This provides farmers with recognition, confidence and traceability when buying and selling BVDFree cattle. CHeCS accredited herds (from all over the UK) can register and display their BVD herd status for ‘free’ on their database and don’t need to be a member of BVDFree. An electronic form giving PCHS permission to upload BVD herd status is available at www.cattlehealth.co.uk/bvdfree

Northern Ireland

BVD Eradication Programme A voluntary phase started on 1st January 2013 followed by a compulsory phase from 1st March 2016, requiring all calves to be tested for BVD virus. The eradication scheme is based on testing ear punch samples for BVD virus using official identity or management tissue tags. Farmers join the programme by ordering tissue sample tags from a designated tag supplier. Permission is obtained from the herd owner to share their herd data and results for the administration of the programme and farmers undertake to comply with the programme guidelines. Calves should be tagged as soon as possible after birth (as soon as the calf is dry) and not later than 20 days after birth. All aborted and stillborn calves should be sampled for testing. For those animals born during the compulsory phase of the programme, only those testing negative are permitted to move off the farm to another farm, market or Export Assembly Centre. All PI calves should be isolated until culled or slaughtered. Participating farmers can access data recorded for their herd through the AHWNI database (www.animalhealthni.com) Contact Details: Tel: 028 8778 9126 Email: info@animalhealthni.com

SIMMENTAL REVIEW 2018

g n i y u B e Guid Although keeping a closed herd is the best way to keep disease off your farm, this isn’t always possible. Buying replacements can be a risky business; a healthy looking animal may be carrying disease. Don’t be afraid to ask direct questions about an animal’s health status. One wrong assumption can lead to a crippling disease outbreak and devastate profits on your farm. Here are some recommendations for best practice when purchasing replacement animals: • • •

• • •

If purchasing stock of unknown health status: • Ideally test on the farm of origin before bringing them home • If stock are brought home they should be isolated for at least 28 days from the rest of the herd and tested according to which diseases your herd is accredited for • Any animals that test positive for IBR or Leptospirosis should be removed from the quarantine group and then test the group again 28 days later. If the group tests negative they can be introduced to the home herd.

Buy replacements (including bulls) from CHeCS accredited herds Check herd status of PCHS members on our online members database If you are given a certificate of accredited status check that the herd is within the testing date to see if CHeCS accredited status is still valid Isolate purchased stock on arrival for at least one month. Purchasing animals through markets and transportation poses a potential disease risk so quarantine and test animals before they join the herd If you are buying in pregnant animals quarantine them on arrival and tissue tag the calf for BVD as soon as it is born before mixing with the rest of the herd Try to buy accredited high health status bulls – otherwise quarantine and test before introducing to the herd Screen your herd for disease – when buying animals of a high health status, it is worth knowing if your own herd has any disease issues. High health status purchased stock won’t perform if they are exposed to a heavy disease burden in their new home. In this situation it is worth discussing vaccination of incoming stock with your vet Follow the correct biosecurity procedures for transporting cattle, it is not worth buying a healthy animal only for it to pick up a disease on the journey home

PCHS NEWS

You must decide if you wish to accredit all stock on the holding or keep newly acquired stock separated. If you keep two separate herds you must be sure to follow biosecurity guidelines otherwise the accredited herd will lose its status. Keep hold of your certification and contact the PCHS Team at St Boswell’s who will be able to guide you and your vet on next steps to registering your herd. It is also worth considering: • Planning ahead your purchases for the year, what type of animals will be bought and what time of year, allowing you to plan effective quarantine and control measures • Buying in as few animals as possible. Planning ahead may allow you to increase numbers or get enough replacements from your own herd rather than having to rely on purchasing and adding more risk • Buying from as few herds as possible. The more herds you buy from the greater the risk of introducing disease. Buying 50 cattle from one herd is potentially a lot lower risk than buying 20 cattle from a number of different herds. If possible try to buy from the same herds year after year, allowing you to build a relationship with the owner and get to know their health status and management practices.

TB Advisory Service

Advantages of being in the CHeCS bTB Scheme

Cattle farmers across the High Risk and Edge Areas of England are eligible to receive FREE, bespoke advice on practical, cost-effective measures to reduce the risks associated with TB. The TB Advisory Service offers one-to-one on-farm advice visits, where experienced advisors can provide bespoke recommendations to prevent TB incursions in herds that are currently clear, whilst discussing trading options and measures to prevent repeated reinfection for farms that are currently under TB restrictions. A telephone advice service and ‘drop-in clinics’ are also available for farmers with specific questions about bovine TB and biosecurity. The project is funded by Defra and the EU through the Rural Development Programme for England, and runs until 2020.

Changes announced by Defra in May 2018 - England • Compensation – from 1st November 2018, 50% compensation will be available for animals brought into a TB breakdown herd which then fail a TB test. This will mirror what already happens in Wales. However, cattle keepers registered and participating in CHeCS TB Herd will continue to receive 100% compensation for compulsorily slaughtered cattle, provided the herd is accredited (with a score of 1 or above) at the time of the breakdown • Six monthly testing – routine surveillance testing for higher risk herds in the High Risk Area (HRA) will now take place at six-monthly intervals from 2020, some herds in HRA will remain on annual testing if: They have not had a TB breakdown in 6 years; and/or they are CHeCS TB accredited at level 1 or above

Robert Lunness 1942 - 2018 When I joined the British Simmental Society in 1988 and during my early years of showing in the 1990s, I soon became aware of the herd name ‘BRINKTON’, with it winning at the majority of the main agricultural shows I visited. The name ‘Melody’ kept arising and it was soon known that if they (Bob & Jean) were there with Melody, the question was who would come second? Apparently when starting up with Simmentals Bob and Jean were mocked by other breeds/farmers they knew, asking why they had started in ‘rare breeds’. Bob’s answer to this was always ‘the rare breeds’ they referred to became the ‘Best of all breeds’, something he continued to champion when he went on to win the Burke Trophy as a breeder, and when he was president seeing Valentine and Sterling Krackerjack being successful, winning the Burke Trophy again. Certain animals names go on to become famous, and within the Simmental Society, that has to go to Brinkton Melody. She won everything and then went on to breed both male and female champions, with the likes of Bluebelle, Bonzo, Wizard and many,many more. The Brinkton herd still has the record of the most class winners at the Royal Show with them gaining 6 first prizes in 1993 and this was when there were over a hundred Simmentals forward, as well as overall supreme and reserve champions in both the male and female championship. Melody went on to gain Golden Cow status and when she was paraded before the crowd at the reduction sale they had in 1994, she was paraded in the sale ring at the start to Tina Turner’s Simply the Best! She was described by the auctioneer, Jack Young as the “best Simmental cow of the century and certainly of his lifetime”. The sale went on to produce a record at the time - 34 females sold to average £4,082. Over 600 breeders were present to see the top price of 11,000 guineas being paid for Bluebelle by Haddon and Lynda Burditt. Clearly, as a new breeder, you are in awe of these people who, at the time you don’t know, but who go on to become

www.britishsimmental.co.uk

friends and when judged at a show by Bob (but always prompted by Jean from the sidelines) being put up with a baby heifer called ‘Valentine’ and being told by Jean that she was special, made my day. I used to wonder how, when going to shows, his animals came off the lorry and almost immediately lay down as if they had been there for days, while mine stood and got so tired they almost fell down. On visiting his farm one day, I found that all his show cows were tied up as if at a show and it was just natural for them. He had big refrigeration units cut out of a lorry blowing down on the cattle, so they had coats thicker than anyone else, and with those coats there was no-one better than Jean for turning them out. I attended an early show and phoned home saying I thought the animal I had would be third, having seen them in the pens. We ended up 5th with two brought out by Bob (after Jean had done her bit) pushing everyone else down and winning again. The name Bob Lunness will always be known within our breed, but cannot be mentioned without that of his wife Jean and the animals which made the herd name Brinkton so famous within our breed. Sadly, less than 8 weeks after Bob died, Jean also passed away, just before Christmas. Clearly we all move on with new names, animals and herds becoming well known, however the names of Lunness and Melody will always be something that remains special as far as my time in the breed is concerned Sleep well my friend, you left without me getting a chance to say goodbye!!

Hector Macaskill 10.05.48 – 06.01.18 Hector was born in 1948 into a crofting family in Melvaig, Wester Ross where he grew up with his brother Donald Iain. Gaelic was the common language and he only learned English at school in later years. Upon leaving school at the age of 15, he worked on the family croft and later as a shepherd on a farm near Gairloch. It was there that he met his future wife Fiona Cameron and they married in 1970. Two years later Hector and Fiona moved to Woodhall farm near Innerwick, they were blessed with 4 daughters – Kirsty, Maj, Rhona and Jenny who helped on the farm, consisting in the early days of Blackface sheep and Hereford cross Friesian cattle. His first association with the Simmental breed was in 1976 when he purchased a bull from the Perth sales. After satisfactory results with the progeny, the Woodhall herd was established and grew to female numbers well excess of 100. Hector developed a strong passion and understanding of the genetics and later enjoyed much success in the show and sale rings. He became a very reputable breeder, travelling to countries such as Canada, New Zealand, Germany, Austria, Australia and Denmark and acted in many ways as an ambassador for the UK. Hector had a terrific gift of remembering cattle markings and their pedigrees; he was often referred to as the ‘encyclopaedia’ of the breed. A competent judge, he is one of a small number to have adjudicated at the 4 Royals, as well as Premier events in Ireland and Continental Europe. Many visitors from near and

far have had the pleasure of Woodhall hospitality over the years, including participants of the World Congress in 2008. A strong and hardworking council member for many years, he was rewarded with the Presidency of the Simmental society in 2008 & 2009, a position he held with great pride and competence. Love for his large flock of Blackface sheep often resulted in prize winning mule ewe lambs, and selling over 400 in a single day was not uncommon at Stirling market. It was also at these events where Hector developed a close friendship with many breeders in the sheep industry. Hector passed away on the 6th January 2018, after a degrading terminal illness, which he bore with great dignity and fortitude. His quick wit and kind heart will fondly be remembered by all who knew him well. He will be sadly missed by many people including his fellow breeders, good neighbours and friends but especially his wife Fiona, daughters, sons in law and grandchildren, all of which he was extremely proud. On a personal note, I must say that after a lasting relationship for over 30 years I have lost a special friend and gentleman. Cecil McIlwaine

Charles Bruce 16/11/1927 - 30/8/2018 Chick was born and brought up at Newtonmill, a dairy farm in Angus with a bottling and doorstep delivery business. Son of a farmer and WW1 veteran, he was the third generation Bruce to make a living from the farm. He lived and worked there till 1964 when he upped sticks and relocated to Bemersyde Farm in the Scottish Borders, where he set up a pedigree herd of Ruby Red North Devon cattle. Many championship rosettes followed from Exeter to Perth, along with five supreme championships at the RHASS Highland Show. A new challenge followed in 1976 when he joined in the importation of Simmental heifers from Switzerland, taking 4 of the consignment back to Bemersyde. He gradually built up the herd, winning championships at both Perth and Carlisle bull sales along the way, and

producing many sires for both pedigree breeders and commercial herds alike. He was chairman of both Brechin and Angus Federation of Young Farmers. He chaired the Borders Crop and Grassland Society and the local NFU. In his youth he was a professional sprinter, heavyweight Highland Games competitor, and was also a keen curler all his life. He was a passionate and lifelong stocksman and pedigree cattle breeder, always fun loving with a twinkle in his eye. He will be sorely missed by his wife Moira, sons Malcolm, Gordon and Stuart, daughter in law Gillian and grandchildren Nicola, Grant, Rebecca and Zoe, and by the many close friends and acquaintances he made over the years. Au revoir Chick. M.+G. Bruce.

Farewell Dear Friends to


Farewell Dear Friends to

Paull Borlase 1943 – 2018 My father Paull was born on the 22nd July 1943 in Hertford and lived for the first 72 years of his life at both Sacombe Hill Farm and Perrywood Farm on the Woodhall Estate, where he farmed firstly with his Grandfather, then in partnership with his parents, Bert & Betty Borlase before their passing. Paull firstly attended Heath Mount School based on the Woodhall Estate then Lancing College in West Sussex before he finished his studies at Moulton Agricultural College in Northamptonshire and returned home to the family farm. At the age of 8 he was struck down with tetanus and spent 8 weeks in a coma before having to learn to walk again. Paull became an accomplished sportsman, particularly as a mile runner, and he competed against the likes of Roger Bannister at the White City Stadium following on to play rugby for the Royston Crows for many years. In 1968 after a very short courtship with Judy he asked her father if he could marry Judy and when later that day, he took her by complete surprise by saying to her that he had asked her father for her hand in marriage, her comment was, ‘and what did he say?’. Without hesitation my father recited my Grandfather’s comment ‘The Best of Bloody Luck to you’. Paull and Judy were married on the 4th December 1968 and so very nearly got to their Golden Wedding anniversary but sadly it was not to be. William was born in 1969 and I followed in 1975 and our father was always immensely supportive of us and very proud of what we had both achieved and he became the best Grandfather our children could ever have had, referring to his Grandchildren, Ben, Samuel and Scarlett as his little angels. On the 4th July 1970 Paull and his parents had the foresight to establish the Sacombe Simmental Herd and became founding members of The British Simmental Cattle Society, his one wish was to see the herd attain its 50th Anniversary which we will proudly do in 2020. He loved his cattle and particularly loved the summer shows. Never one to seek the limelight, he often let others do the showing, but he loved nothing more than grabbing the muck fork or a comb and chatting to all the show goers, inviting numerous people from home and abroad to come and view the herd on the farm and in the process signing up many new members for the breed - he was very much a people’s person. Paull achieved many highlights over his 48 years in the Simmental breed including winning the Supreme Championship at Perth Bull Sales on two occasions with Sacombe Edgar and Sacombe Wishful Thinking, Supreme and Interbreed Champion at The Royal Show with Sacombe Shamus, Supreme Champion at the Royal Highland with Sacombe Bernard and Supreme Champion at The Royal Welsh on two occasions, firstly with Sacombe Balmoral and

this year just a week before his passing with Sterling Petra’s Cairo which he was able to watch on TV. Without a doubt though, the highlight of his farming career as he saw it was winning the coveted Burke Trophy in 2012 with Perrywood Wispa and Clonagh World Class. A naturally gifted engineer, Paull could turn his hand to anything in a workshop and it was often joked how he could have appeared on Scrap Heap Challenge such was his ability to turn tired old metal into something useful and this skill came to the fore throughout his farming life. Paull took the very bold decision at the age of 72 to purchase a new farm in Shropshire, and on the 30th September 2015 together with Judy they moved to Batchcott Hall Farm, which he described as having moved to God’s Country. He promptly set about trying to promote the attributes of Simmentals to the locals and establishing an 800-ewe flock to run on the farm alongside the portion of the Sacombe herd he had taken with him and he immensely enjoyed the new friendships he promptly made in the local area. 16 years ago, my father was diagnosed with Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis, a liver disease which was untreatable, and specialists knew very little about. Knowing he couldn’t be cured he enrolled himself to be a guinea pig so in the future he can hopefully help others. It was just three weeks from him being diagnosed with cancer to his passing, it was so aggressive it took everyone by surprise. Throughout he never failed to thank the medical staff and always told them how brilliant they were, his care from them was fantastic. Farming was Paull’s life, his passion and his pleasure and no aspect more so than his beloved Simmental herd. His enthusiasm for farming and Simmentals was infectious and plain for all to see. My Mother, William and I would like to thank everyone who has shown our family so much support and kindness through this difficult time, we have lost a loving husband, supportive father and loving grandfather and a best friend to many. We are all the richer for having had him in our lives. Bridget Borlase


Joe Mee 19/08/1933 - 29/10/2018 Joe Mee, founder of the Lancelot herd, died on 29th October 2018 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. He was a loving husband, dad and granddad, and a true gentleman, who will be greatly missed by his wife Jill, children Oliver and Georgina and four grandchildren, and also by those of us who showed cattle alongside him. There were several tributes at his funeral, the first from his friend Chris White, who spoke about his love of cattle and showing: Many of you know that I wasn’t family, but Joe and Jill always made me feel like I was. I started to go up to Joe and Jill’s at the age of eleven to help out, and later to work. I look back now and think how patient Joe must have been. I was not from a farming background – a city lad from Sheffield – and have never thought about being a farmer. The patience, time and understanding that Joe spent teaching me led me to my career in farming, doing what I love the most. I couldn’t have had a better tutor. Joe loved his showing, and would always like to pick his show team in January to start halter breaking and getting them ready. His one aim was to beat Mr Donnelly, and he achieved this with Harriet leading a home bred heifer in 2016 at Ashbourne Show. Joe’s face was a picture, he couldn’t stop smiling and said he was happy now, he’d done what he set out to do. The second tribute was from Harriet Thomas-Mee, Joe’s granddaughter.

I would like to say a few words from Dada’s 4 grandchildren, Charlie, Josh, Ruby and myself. Dada has always been there for us, helping and encouraging us with our hobbies. For Ruby, he gave her advice and helped to raise many orphan lambs; with Josh he had lots of good times watching and chatting about football. With Charlie, and the help of Dada’s dear friend Geoff, they restored an old Petter engine. Dada shared his love of Simmental cattle with me, as well as always encouraging me with my degree. Every Tuesday and Wednesday after school he would be waiting for us on the quadbike at the bottom of the lane to give us a lift up to the farm. We all loved this but mum wasn’t so keen on the soggy trousers on wet days! We have so many great memories with Dada and are very lucky to have lived so close to him and been able to spend lots of time together.  There was always a job to be done, his favourite summer job was to get us painting. He was very patient as we got the paint on everything other than whatever we were meant to be painting! The favourite winter job was definitely mucking out the cows at the weekends, this we got quite good at…   We have all spent a lot of hours growing up around animals and riding on tractors with him. He was a great role model and I aim to be as strong, kind and honest as him. You stand forever in our hearts, the best Dada we could have ever asked for, we will always look up to you and miss you very much.

SIMMENTAL REVIEW 2018

Centre West Club Chairman’s Report by Mark Sallis

O

The AGM saw the following appointments for 2018 Chairman – Mark Sallis Vice-Chairman – David Savins Treasurer – John Fellows Secretary – Amy Cox It was very pleasing to see club members taking three of the top four prices at the Worcester sale in May. Congratulations to C.H Evans & Son on selling Wroxall Happy Chappy, for the day’s top price of 5000 guineas, to fellow club members C.M Mercer, for use in the Bowley herd. Other notable prices were achieved by John Rixon (Lopemede) and James Shouler (Alchester). The sale at Worcester in May continues to go from strength to strength and I anticipate the additional Autumn sale at Worcester in 2019 will be equally as successful. Unfortunately, the show season was very quiet for club members this year. We have seen the dispersal of a number of great herds who were very active on the show circuit over the last couple of years, and other members have elected to stay at home this year for a variety of reasons. Hopefully next year will see us out in force.

Our annual Herd Competition was admirably judged in September by Noah Hoskins, supported by our very own Rob Hewlett, and we thank them both for generously donating their time. Centre West Herd Competion Results 2018

Cornwall Simmental Club Report by Bridget Olds - Secretary

W

e began 2018 with our annual dinner in January at The Plume of Feathers, Mitchell where members were joined by family and friends to enjoy a convivial meal. The amusing game of Irish Bingo was won by Robert Bowden with the club secretary just losing out. February saw Sowenna acquiring Strathisla Humble’s Harriet from the one-off draft sale of Islavale Donald’s heifers at Stirling Bull Sales, marking the celebration of forty years of the Ivory family breeding Simmentals. Harriet has subsequently produced a heifer calf by Woodhall Ferrari in August 2018.

In May, Cornwall Club members supported the Worcester Society sale offering a selection of bulls and females. Entries included cattle from Sowenna, Killiworgie, Chegwidden (draft of Chegwidden Alfie sired females) and Bosahan (Reserve Male Champion and Top price heifer). Bosahan Hendra 16 - Reserve Male Champion at the Worcester Sale

Two weeks later Killiworgie and Treverbyn herds took the honours at Devon County Show with Killiworgie Grace’s Camelia taking the Female Championship and Overall with Ant Hart heading the males with Skylark Geronimo. Strathisla Humble’s Harriet and calf Sowenna Joy

Our annual challenge against the South Devon club usually takes place in March, however unfortunately this did not work out this year. A repeat is planned for 2019. April featured the second Cornwall Club Sale at Exeter market where, in common with other spring sales, entries forward were disappointing. However, warm congratulations to Gethin and Enfys Lloyd who made the long journey from Wales and successfully sold Crugmelyn Elvis to Malcom Coumbe’s Housey herd at Liskeard.

Chegwidden Impecibull 17 - Reserve Male Champion at the Royal Cornwall Show

REGIONAL CLUB REPORTS

During the first week of June, attention is centred on our County Show at Wadebridge. This year John Moore (Omorga, Northern Ireland) took on the task of judging the eight classes, respective specials and championships. Local breeders with entries forward included Sowenna, Kurlycoat, Chegwidden, Killiworgie, Pennytinney,Treverbyn and Bosahan. Sowenna emerged as Female and Overall Champion with their first calf heifer Sowenna Galaxy - (Sowenna Tamar x Celtic Betty), while her August 17 daughter Sowenna Iola by Castlegale Eric lifted the Junior Championship. The Skerrington Armada sired Bosahan Harmony Whitney headed the two-yearold heifer line up and stood Reserve Female Champion. Killiworgie took the Male Championship with their new stock bull, the Sterling Flint sired Lynfield Hamish, and Viv Hall stood reserve with her home-bred April 17 youngster Chegwidden Impecibull by Chegwidden Fergal Gallant. Other class winners were Sowenna Ivor, Killiworgie Grace’s Camelia and Sowenna Henrietta’s Ivy. Megan Wellington (Pennytinney) with her new stock bull Sowenna Illuminate was second in the Beef Young Handlers Senior class and went on to be Reserve Champion in the beef section.

REGIONAL CLUB REPORTS The British Simmental section also featured in the Interbreed honours with the senior pairing of Lynfield Hamish and Killiworgie Grace’s Camelia standing in the reserve spot to the Charolais team. While the junior pair of Chegwidden Impecibull and Sowenna Henrietta’s Ivy took third in a strong line-up and Sowenna Galaxy did well to be tapped out in the final line up for the Supreme Championship against mature opposition. Impecibull was third in the Interbreed Nare Hotel Best Beef Bull, born on or after 1st January 2016 - a brilliant result for his age.

Hayley and Bosahan Harmony Whitney stood Reserve in the Interbreed best pair of uncalved heifers and Killiworgie Grace’s Camelia, Bosahan Husky Angelika and Wellatree Honeybun joined the aforementioned pair in the teams of five females for the Harry Cock Challenge Trophy and completed the treble of Interbreed Reserves to the South Devons.

A big thank must go to all the members and supporters involved in preparing, running and clearing up the hospitality tent and our generous sponsors. The successful bonus ball competition run during the show for a Portasol Gas Dehorning Iron donated to the Cornwall Simmental Club by the Irish Simmental Club was won by Ashley Mann, director of APM Plant Hire Ltd who also runs a commercial suckler herd Presentation Dehorner near Falmouth.

Treverbyn Hayley, Wellatree Honeybun and Bosahan Harmony Whitney were awarded the best Interbreed team of three winning the Archie Opie Trophy.

SUMMER SHOWS

A big appreciation to all club members who have exhibited their cattle at the one day shows throughout the summer and flown the Simmental flag, especially in the mixed beef breed classes. Ant Hart (Treverbyn) deservedly was awarded the Cornwall Club most points award for successes with Skylark Geronimo and Treverbyn Hayley while Steve and Gill Gummow were runners-up with Lynfield Hamish and Killiworgie Grace’s Camelia.

July ended with a Female Classification Demonstration kindly hosted by the Sowenna Herd. Club members had the opportunity to question Tina Russell on the inspection process and see excellent examples of the type of cattle to aim for with Sowenna Annie scoring Ex 92. The demonstration was followed by a herd visit and despite the dry conditions the Sowenna herd were in fine fettle and a credit to the Hawkey family.

CORNWALL SIMMENTAL CLUB COMMERCIAL OPEN DAY 2018 – SUNDAY 9TH SEPTEMBER

KILLIWORGIE OPEN DAY

After days and days of endless sunshine, it was a huge disappointment that the heavens opened at the end of August for Killiworgie’s open day celebrating twenty years of breeding Simmentals. Nevertheless, around forty visitors were welcomed by Steve and Gill Gummow and family for a tour of the herd, followed by a hog roast and plentiful refreshments. Despite the inclement weather, the quality of their cattle shone through providing a thoroughly enjoyable social afternoon to celebrate an important milestone in their history. Killiworgie started with six cows from the Pencarrow dispersal. Among the additions from society sales and private purchasers, a special mention should go to Boarshead Grace 4th, Lakeside Warrior and Ballinalare Farm Buttercup 2nd for their impact on improving the stock. Buttercup’s first calf Killiworgie Emperor by Auchorachan Wizard not only has an enviable show record but is leaving daughters with a consistent stamp. The Gummows eagerly await the opening of their next chapter with Lynfield Hamish progeny due in 2019. Congratulations to Steve Gummow on being added to the Society’s judging panel.

Beef cattle breeders from St Buryan to Bude attended the seventh commercial open day organised by Cornwall Simmental Club. Warmly welcomed by Phil and Lesley Martyn-Uglow at Hornacott Farm, Boyton, Launceston, the event was sponsored by the British Simmental Society. The farm tour was preceded by a talk given by Philip Warren of Warren Butchers, who emphasised the importance of producing meat to meet the changing trends of both today’s and future buyer’s needs, which are underpinned by a growing awareness of welfare and health concerns for sentient beings. The discerning customer was prepared to pay for quality over quantity and he went on to highlight the value of the British Simmental, making the following points: • Breeders should promote the benefits of hybrid vigour offered by Simmental terminal sires when used across native breeds, thereby improving the gene pool of milky dams capable of raising early finishing grass fed progeny • The eating quality of meat is globally recognised as being influenced by maternal genetics. Breeders will be rewarded in the future for a consistent, premium product already sought by leading chefs in the restaurants across England which his business sources for them He concluded by urging breeders to consider the size of the cattle they are aiming for as bigger is not better for the cuts of meat his customers prefer.

REGIONAL CLUB REPORTS The visit continued in wonderful sunshine as ninety suckler cows and their progeny were viewed. Phil MartynUglow explained the successful changes in breeding policy the family had made by crossing both Simmental and Charolais sires on a range of native breeds, and putting the retained breeding females back to a Simmental bull. A group of Simmental cross heifers due to calve at twenty-two to twenty-four months old typified the stamp of cattle desired. Mothering ability coupled with the renowned docility and fertility of the Simmental breed have justified the decisions made. Robust suckled calves due to be weaned will fulfil the desired specifications outlined by the guest Philip Warren speaker.

CLUB TRIP

September also featured the annual club trip which this year saw Cornwall & South West Club members heading for the borders with hurricane Ali on their tail, and staying in the lovely Powfoot Hotel on the shores of Solway Firth. Despite the unsettled weather, we were made welcome by the Chestermann, Newbiemains, Manor Park, and Bavington herds. We also visited the lairage facilities run by Andrew and Alieen Ewing, Annandale whisky distillery and the market town of Hexham. Chestermann Heifers

East Anglian Simmental Club Report by Hayley Clarke – Secretary

A

nother twelve months have gone and here I am again writing a report for the Annual Review. Firstly, I would like to thank all our members for their support throughout the year, it is also great news that numbers are growing in our club and this is good news for the breed. We had three weddings in the club, Chris & Zara Curson: Hollybrook Herd, James & Kelly Brice: Rendham Herd & Dennis Mitchell & Eliandro Felipeto - we wish them all the best for the future. Newark sale saw a top price of 3400gns for the bulls and 3800gns for the females. There were buyers for the cattle, so we must try and improve our overall standard. The show season seemed to go by in a flash, a lot of the shows have now dropped breed classes which shows a sign of the times with costs and people being worried Fircovert Cecilia

about their cattle picking up diseases. Suffolk has breed classes, but this year was the lowest it has seen with exhibitors forward. Lesley & David Sapsed won with Heathbrow Gypsy Rose. Royal Norfolk was well supported, Heathbrow herd won again - this time with Heathbrow Girlie’s Ivy. A few of us took the trip to the National Show at Great Yorkshire, with all of us picking up rosettes. It was great to see Simon back in the ring, we agreed Dad would be very proud of what he has achieved. To great delight Paul and Linda were awarded with a prize at the dinner for Fircovert Cecilia, she has been to seven national shows!! Once again, we took the long drive to the Royal Welsh Show, much to our surprise numbers were not that good either, we picked up Junior Male Champion with Williams Invincible.

Wayland show numbers are increasing; there were no breed classes but for the time of year, this show is doing well - well done Granger. Paul & Linda Gunther won the last show of the season with Fircovert Cecilia at Aylsham, well done to them both. A big thank you to the judges who travelled to the shows as I know it can be hard & frustrating only judging a few in a class.

As most of you know, the National Simmental Show will be held at the Royal Norfolk Show in 2019. This is one of the best in the country. They will not limit you on stalls, but I advise you to book early, you can always cancel some stalls if you have overbooked - Holly will refund you. You will also get money back for every animal forward. If you have any questions, you can get in contact with Holly at the Norfolk show. I can also help if you want to speak to me, I also know of some great accomodation close to the show ground, but I would advise you to book early, some of them are only 10 minutes away and you don’t have to go into the city! Finally, most of all, I would like to wish all the Simmental breeders success, good luck and a healthy 2019.

Eastern Simmental Club Report by Emma McInnes - Secretary 2018 SHOWS

Lincoln show was the first outing this year for our club members. The Hollingsworth family took Reserve Champion with their bull Midhope Ivor. The next major win was for Tom and Ruby at Norfolk Show, where they took Male Champion, Junior Champion, and went on to take Reserve Junior Interbreed Champion with their young bull Scotland Hill Iceman. Donald and Kirsty won the January-March 2017 class with their heifer St Trinian’s Imogen. The English National Show was held at the Great Yorkshire this year. The Hollingsworth and Steele families were in the tickets, and a good time was had by all.

2018 SALES

Newark sale in March saw the Hollingsworth family take reserve female champion with Midhope Glamorous. Leading Ladies sale at Carlisle saw victory for the Hollingsworth family, as they took Champion with their heifer Midhope Holy Light out of the much noted cow Midhope Bright Light. The October sales at Stirling saw Tom and Ruby taking two red tickets with both of their bulls, Scotland Hill IBN and Invader. Both bulls went on to sell well, the youngest making 10,000 guineas. It’s been a challenging year to say the least, but the members have achieved a lot in their own right. Here’s to 2019 and the opportunities it brings.

We continue to be strongly represented at shows which is really encouraging, as it is a great shop window for our breed. Our herd competition was judged this year by John Rixon, ably assisted by his partner Shona. The extended summer hopefully made this an enjoyable experience for them and we thank them both for giving up their time especially during a busy period. Ours is quite a large area

REGIONAL CLUB REPORTS Farm. What a treat! A super herd of Simmentals with the added advantage of having a walk around the beautiful thoroughbred mares and foals. Once more, thank you for having us - we had a fantastic morning. The calf shows were well represented this year Congratulations go to Richard and Louise Storer Smith on their wins at Agri Expo and the English Winter Fair. The year ended with the English Winter Fair, manned as always by Mandy and Kath with help from Andrea, Sally and Christine. Thank you to all for your hard work, it is much appreciated and thank you too for all the delicious cakes, we are so lucky to have so many talented bakers in our midst! We rounded off with our AGM, always a nice end to the year as we have a good turnout and get chance to catchup with our members old and new.

David Loftus and Judge John Rixon

The herd competition results presentation took place by kind invitation of David and Christine Loftus at the home of the Blackpool herd. We enjoyed a lovely afternoon, saw some wonderful cattle and their Maize Maze. Thank you to David and Christine for your hospitality, it was much appreciated.

Later in September some of us joined up with the South East group and travelled to Ireland. We had a lovely visit to Peter and Marion O’Connell’s Raceview herd in Mallow. The weather was kind and we were treated to a lovely lunch. Thank you to you both for your great hospitality. We then travelled North to visit the Clonagh herd of Garrett and Lyndsey Behan. We had a lovely evening walk around their impressive herd and saw some lovely cattle - some of them I am sure we will see a lot more of in the future. We were again very well fed and watered and would like to thank the Behan’s for their hospitality. Saturday morning dawned, and it was as wet as it could have been for our visit to Strokestown to the National Simmental calf finals. We were treated to a great display of cattle once more, and had a lovely day despite the weather. Our final visit was to the Ballybane herd and Stud

On a sad note, we lost a valued member of our club this year, Mr Joe Mee lost his battle in October. He was a long-standing member who will be sorely missed, and our sympathies go to his wife Jillian and family. I would like to thank Robert for his support as Vice Chairman and to Mandy for her tireless work as secretary we would be lost without her. Thanks also go to Bill Turrell, our long-standing treasurer. Thank you for the huge amount of time you all dedicate to the smooth running of the club. Finally, although we are living in uncertain times our breed continues to go from strength to strength. Long may that continue. I would like to wish all members and Simmental breeders a happy and successful 2019.

he Club has had a reasonably quiet 2018. It was a special year given the fact the National Show was held at the Great Yorkshire Show, Harrogate, a relative home match for a lot of NE Members! Well done to Vikki, Jimmy, Harry and Hannah Wood who took

the Championship with their heifer ‘Popes Rhona’. All exhibitors should be extremely proud of the quality of cattle they brought out at the show, and whether you were near the top or further down the line you should be congratulated.

Pictured to the right Reserve Champion Grangewood Heston & Andrew Leedham

The year started with our AGM at Scarthingwell. A good number of members came for Sunday lunch and various ideas were put forward for visits. Unfortunately, with this year’s weather being so challenging no one could commit to a possible 2-day visit. Newark Show & Sale in March brought success for Andrew & Yvonne Leedham and John, Val and Craig Hollingsworth. ‘Grangewood Heston 16’ a ‘Grangewood Damascus 12’ son was awarded Reserve Champion for Andrew & Yvonne before selling for 3300gns. ‘Midhope Glamorous’ achieved Reserve Female Champion for John,

Val and Craig before being sold to CR Fovargue Bros, Leicester for 2600gns. The Leading Ladies Show & Sale at Carlisle in April saw the top two spots being taken by Club members. John, Val and Craig Hollingsworth took the Championship with ‘Midhope Holy Light’ selling for 5000gns to Mr Grant (Dellfield). Andrew & Ruth Steele were awarded the Reserve Champion with ‘Weeton Crocus’s Hyacinth’, the ‘Ashland Brandy‘ daughter later being sold for 2600gns. Well done to Katie Steele who prepared and showed Hyacinth at the sale.

Lincoln show in June brought success for the Hollingsworth & Steele families. John, Val and Craig collected two seconds with their heifers ‘Midhope Heavenly Light’ and ‘Midhope I-Light’. Ian & Margaret were awarded a 4th place with their heifer ‘Blakewell Wallflowers Hyacinth’. The heifers were out again at the Great Yorkshire show where competition was fierce. They gained a second, fourth and third respectively. A special mention to Emma Steele who showed her grandparents’ heifer so professionally. The Club’s biennial Herd Competition was judged on the weekend of the 22nd and 23rd September. Mr John Barlow, Leyland, Lancashire was kind enough to judge the 9 herds that had entered. Results were announced at our Annual Dinner which was held at a new venue, The Bridge, Walshford near Wetherby on Saturday 17th November. The Club is indebted to John for giving up his weekend to view the herds, also thank you to Ellis for accompanying him and helping to navigate around some very unfamiliar countryside!

North West Simmental Club Report by Sarah Ford - Secretary

A

nother year woosh! Our club year started with the AGM in February held at the Auctioneer, Carlisle, where new club officers and committee were elected. Juliet Sanders stepped down as chairman having done her two- year stint, we all very much appreciated Juliet’s hard work. Alan Tallentire took over. Winter this year was interesting to say the least with “the beast from the east” doing its best to kill us, making many of us question what we are doing!!! The Carlisle Spring sale which included the Leading Ladies was held on the 20th April and was judged by Stewart Stronach Jr of Maisley, Keith, Banffshire. We had a pre-supper sale at the Auctioneer where we held a raffle raising £90. At last the weather improved and treated us to a fabulous summer. Clive Houldey and family very kindly invited us to join the farm walk they were holding for the Scottish club. Unfortunately, only a handful of members made it, but we were very grateful to be asked to enjoy Manor Park’s lovely cattle and hospitality. On Sunday 16th September we had our farm walk and a fabulous day it was too. We started at Mr Pearson at Blencow, Penrith. This is one of the herds from which we source the cattle that grace the stand at Agri Expo. He runs around 120 cows all Simmental x Blue or Simmental x Limousin covering them with a Simmental, Blue or Limousin bull. The bull calves are fattened and sold deadweight, some of the heifers will be kept as herd replacement the others sold for breeding or fattened. We then went onto John Piele’s at Greystoke where we had a lovely lunch. John runs a 200 plus herd of cows all of which are commercial crosses. He buys Simmental x blue heifers from Irvine Pearson, which are bulled with a Limousin as heifers, then a Charolais bull thereafter. Calves are sold off the cow as weaned suckler calves. Alongside the cattle he runs a flock of Swaledale sheep, some of which are bred pure, others producing Mule lambs, as well as a flock of Texel crosses. We found it extremely interesting to go around commercial farms, seeing the Simmental used for different purposes. We were looked after extremely well, and a great day was had by all. A huge thank you to both families. Agri Expo was another outstanding success for the Simmental Society with tremendous cattle on the stand with a selection of pure bred Simmentals from Ian Willison’s monitor farm, pedigree bulls from Newbiemains and two Simmental x cows with Belgian Blue calves at foot sourced from Irvine Pearson. These proved to be a real showstopper. The stand was busy as usual with club members spending a very busy day making lots cups of tea to go with lovely sandwiches and cakes. A good show of

calves was very ably judged by Laura Green. Thank you Laura. The Overall Champion was Storersmith Isla; a great day was had by all with many of our generous sponsors being there to present the prizes.

I hope to follow on from previous chairpersons and promote the breed as best I can alongside the elected committee.

There was great quality stock on show with Leslie and Christopher Weatherup taking the Senior and Reserve Senior Championship with Lisglass Helena and Lisglass Honey. Taking the Junior Championship was Adrian Richardson, Maguiresbridge with Cleenagh Ivy. Reserve Junior was Ballinlare Farm Isabella bred by Joe Wilson and sons, Newry.

The annual dinner and prizegiving was held on Friday 26th January in the Cohannon Inn, Dungannon and hosted 70 members and their families. We all had a great night and the winners of the year’s shows and sales collected their awards. We thanked all our sponsors and members for their generosity throughout the year. February saw the first sale of the year with some Northern Ireland breeders taking the long trip to Stirling. As always the breeders took their fair share of rosettes with Harold Stubbs and Alan Burleigh taking the Intermediate Championship and top price for Northern Irish bulls of 12,000gns for Camus Harold, bred by Joe Campbell, Strabane. Robsons of Ballyclare hit five figures with the 1st prize winning Kilbride Farm Haka making 10,000gns. Kenny Veitch from Lisbellaw, Fermanagh took 7,000gns for the 1st prize winning Coolcrannel Hero, bred by Willie Phair, Lisbellaw. Following this was 1st prize winning Corrick Hamlet bred by Cecil, Neil and Scott McIlwaine from Newtonstewart. This bull was crowned 2017 Male of the Year, and was the winner of the Bank of Ireland/Nisa Interbreed Junior Bull Championship. He realised 6,500gns.

Scottish Simmental Club Report by Richard Pettit - Secretary

C

lub Members have had a successful year with Shows, and despite the driest summer for years, with many short of grass and winter fodder prices - averages were up for bulls in October at Stirling bull sales. We started the year on a sad note hearing of the loss of one of the Club’s stalwarts, Hector Macaskill, who served as Club Chairman from 1989 to 1991.

FEBRUARY SALE

The two top prices were both from the Stronachs; the top price of 24,000gns for Reserve Champion Islavale Heston, who sold to Richard McCulloch, and Islavale Harvest, sold to the Kilbride Farm herd for 16,000gns. They were also Overall Champion with Islavale Hugo, with 12 of their 13 bulls sold, to average an impressive £8,321. The Intermediate Champion Camus Harold, from Northern Irish breeders Harold Stubbs and Alan Burleigh sold to Vikki Wood at 12,000gns for her Popes herd.

Kilbride Farm Haka, from the Robsons was next selling to Iain Green for 10,000gns. The pre-sale show judge, Anne MacPherson sold Blackford Hurricane, for 9000gns to Bridget Borlase. Other leading prices included 8,000gns for Woodhall Hugh, from the late Hector Macaskill, he sold to Delfur Farms. The Reserve Intermediate Champion – Pitmudie Houston from Heather Duff, sold for 7,800gns. An 82% clearance rate was achieved with 116 bulls selling to average £5,477. In the female sale a top price of 6,800gns was paid for an in-calf heifer from Adrian Ivory, April-2016 born Strathisla Honesty’s Twiggy, selling to Harte Peat Ltd, Ireland. The Reserve Female Champion sold for 4,000gns. This was yearling heifer Newbiemains I’m Brilliant, from Jim and Patricia Goldie. Islavale Harvest 16

REGIONAL CLUB REPORTS

South East Club

Could this be the next Frankel

Report by Chris Patmore - Chairman

I

would like to open this report on a rather sombre note. Our annual AGM was held on 29th April at Tony and Ann Jukes farm in Kent. It was probably the last occasion that most of us were in the company of Paull Borlase who passed away at the end of July. A substantial lunch was provided by Ann and her merry band of helpers which we consumed after our meeting. A memorial service was held at Sacombe in midSeptember followed by a superb lunch provided by Judy and Bridget at the farm. In early September, Ann organised a three-day trip to Southern Ireland. We visited the Raceview and Clonagh herds and saw tremendous cattle knee deep in luscious grass which we in the South of England have been desperately short of this year. Having been fed and watered at both farms on the Friday it could have been shades of the Vicar of Dibley where she ate three Christmas dinners, but luckily, we cancelled the evening meal at the hotel we were staying at. Accommodation was provided by the Bloomfield House Hotel owned by John Connaughton of Bally Bane who also provided the venue for our Sunday visit. A farm to die for, race horses and Simmental cattle in an exquisite environment with hardly a blade of grass out of place. On the Saturday we attended a show at Strokestown. Although a trifle damp for most of the day, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and it was a breath of fresh air to see so many youngsters so enthusiastic about showing.

SIMMENTAL REVIEW 2018

Ireland To the Emerald Isle in September we flew With the Simmental Group, South East To meet some super Irish Breeders And admire each Simmental beast Mrs Jukes was in charge, quite new to her role And sometimes felt things a bit sticky Hurrying the chattering party along To the next farm was quite tricky! Her worry, pre arranged ‘Dinner at Eight’ At the Hotel where we were to stay Our first Race View visit took longer than planned

Some went out , some, Dinner.. there was none ! Next day after breakfast to Strokestown we sped Arriving with excitement and glee A fantastic show with many wonderful calves

As we drove through the beautiful gates And up to an immaculate yard We knew we were in for a treat To be completely impressed was no hard

An amazing spectacle to see With families and friends and a flurry of soap

Not only cattle, a picture in the Parkland sun But thoroughbred mares, what a treat

Intense combing and prep everywhere One animal tied to a branch of a tree! Sound of generators filling the air The competitive spirit was not dampened by rain That eventually rendered us all rather soaked

We were still to see the Clonagh sizable herd Mrs Jukes rang the hotel to explain

delight

At Garrett’s we saw super cows and young stock And enjoyed great hospitality again

As always, some disappointed felt a bit choked Uncomfortably damp, to we returned our hotel

We sat around chatting as the clock ticked on by

Next day, off to Dublin for all to fly home With Ballybane Herd visit on the way

Champions were crowned to their supporters

With their beautiful foals so incredibly tame Quite endearing, not a kick or a bite We reluctantly left, to airport we drove All going our own separate ways

REGIONAL CLUB REPORTS

The Hotel at least two hours away

Thoughts of Dinner went down with the sun We eventually left and drove back to our base

With wonderful memories of our Irish friends Thanks to all, lovely trip, happy days. Penny Lally

Having had a most enjoyable day

REGIONAL CLUB REPORTS

South West Club Report by Dawn Shapland - Secretary

T

he heaviest snow for several years, a record-breaking heatwave and then a storm called Bronagh brought about rather a quiet year for our Club. As usual, on the third Monday in January, we had a Simmental team entered in the area’s Interbreed Quiz. A slight change to the usual lineup, Adrian Curry, Kath Edwards, myself and this year’s “secret weapon” Steve Shapland. With Quizmaster Tony Walker setting the questions, we eventually finished a highly creditable second to the young ladies in the British Blues team. Due to the most significant snowfall in recent years, the A.G.M was postponed from March 5th. Three weeks later the clocks had changed to British Summertime and we were rewarded with magnificent views of our venue, the Oake Manor Golf Club. Another quiz, (famous farmers) provided the evening’s entertainment. Victorious were “The Auctioneers” a team comprising of Clive Roads, Chris Clapham and David Barker. At the meeting we all had the opportunity to view approximately 30 years-worth of Simmental Sale catalogues, Perth, Stirling, Carlisle, Bristol, Worcester etc, and copies of a Society publication from 1995 “SIMMENTAL Its first 25 Years in the United Kingdom”. These items have all been very generously donated to the Club by Mr and Mrs David and Christina Mills. The pre-sale show at Worcester was judged this year by Craig Hollingsworth (Midhope Herd). He awarded Female and Overall Champion to Mr Beynon’s splendid cow, Gwili Gwenan. She sold for 3600 guineas, with her heifer calf Gwili Jenny, at foot. Richard and Debbie Cumming’s Cwarre Hanukkah was the Champion Male. Reserve Male was given to Bosahan Hendra from John and Bridget Olds. Vendors achieved an excellent clearance with only two animals not selling through the sales ring! Thank you to all our sponsors: Mole Valley Farmers, Shearwell Data, For Farmers, Crediton Milling, ABP Langport, Torch Farm Vets and the Winford, Lopemede and Bosahan Herds.

At the Devon County Show in May, there was a lastminute change of judge to former club Chairman, John May (Priorton Herd). Female and Overall Champion was a wonderful cow from Cornwall, the Gummow’s Killiworgie Grace’s Camelia. Reserve Overall was awarded to our present Chairman’s heifer, Winford Vogue 11th . Champion Male was another animal from Cornwall, Skylark Geronimo owned by Anthony Hart.

The Royal Bath and West Show had a good number of entries. The Blomfield family’s Sway Gorgeous Girl was judged to be Overall Champion by James Arnold. Steve, Lorrayne and Emma also had their young bull Sway Harlequin, awarded Champion Male and Overall Reserve. Club member, Laura French and her father, Roger Darch had the Reserve Female, Chard Glitter. Our most recent and youngest members, Brooks and Stanley Carey, enjoyed success in the cross bred heifer class. Sway Gorgeous Girl and Sway Ivanhoe at the Royal Bath & West Show

HERD COMPETITION

A visit to the Bosahan herd of John and Bridget Olds took place on October 14th. Around 50 people attended. A walk around these outstanding cattle was followed by presentations and a wonderful lunch at the local social club. Competition judge Clive Roads announced the winners, and presented the trophies and rosettes. The club would like to thank the Olds family and the judge for their generosity. The following words are the judge’s own thoughts on the competition: Super cattle and marvellous hospitality marked what

SIMMENTAL REVIEW 2018

Skylark Geronimo at the Devon County Show

was a privilege to be invited to judge the 2018 Herd Competition. What a trip!! From the Cotswolds and the source of the River Thames through to the White Horse in Wiltshire, the Jurassic Coast of Dorset, the Eden Project in Cornwall, taking in Exmoor, Dartmoor and Land’s End! A total of 846 miles in 3 days!! My conclusion…. The Simmental breed is in safe hands in the South West. Some brief yet poignant comments of the 14 herds visited on the trip. David Bush – impressed with some great individual cows – not easy when changing calving patterns from Spring to Autumn but definitely a herd to watch with great young stock coming through. The Red Deer enterprise on the farm was particularly enlightening and of great interest. Len & Adrian Curry – What enthusiasm! A small herd but making a mark in the breed. A memorable in-calf heifer Winford Vogue 11th will stay in my mind for a long time – as will the flight path of Bristol Airport! David Edwards – The ultimate for any breed is to be run successfully as a commercial enterprise. David’s herd typifies this. Purebred (not pedigree) good working cows, not too big and producing super calves – best advert for any breed. Alstone Partnership – Roy Loud & Charlie Kidner - A pedigree herd run commercially. The cows keeping the farm rather than farm keeping cows – great management. Excellent groups of in-calf and maiden heifers by Taurus ELO and Heywood Fergus – very eye catching. Steve & Dawn Shapland – Another working herd with cows doing the calves well. The image of that bull calf Brynsworthy Jethro sits bright in my mind and surely a stock bull to make a mark in the future. Chris Tucker – What an impressive farm and a herd on the up and up. Again, some super individual cows, brilliant calves and that particularly smart in-calf heifer Dinton Kiwi. Seeing the flock of laying ducks and learning about Chris’s television work was a real treat! Sandra Francis – One word…Passionate! A walking encyclopaedia of the breed, superb herd with type and breeding. Impressed with the overall type even though a number of different bulls have been used – careful selection has been the secret. Rupert Ridout – A small but select herd - making ongoing improvements and with Rupert’s enthusiasm and thoughts on future breeding policy, another herd to watch in the future. British Blue cross calves were particularly memorable. Robert & Jim Cook – What inspiring “boys” these are! Farming land on the coast line with 100,000 visitors walking the fields, coping with land management required by The National Trust and still breeding good, sound genuine cattle with a superb work ethic and stockman-ship ethic. Fabulous groups of heifers coming forward to enhance the herd. Graham Reed – Stock farming at its best. Big numbers of cows run commercially and efficiently with quality throughout. Great calves, super bulling and maiden heifers and an outstanding young bull Skylark Infamous – a treat to see.


REGIONAL CLUB REPORTS Anthony Hart – What a rewarding experience visiting this herd. Quality throughout, great stock bull, superb in-calf heifer in Treverbyn Hayley and strong type cows everywhere. John & Bridget Olds – Years of sound selective breeding has paid off. Impressive stock wherever you look. Older cows breeding true, great cow families and young stock. Outstanding. Jim Buckland – The “dark horse” of my tour! A herd with a big future, each generation is a marked improvement on the previous one. The new Irish stock bull will continue that trend – definitely a herd to follow.

Viv Hall – A delight to see a herd of this calibre on my last visit of the trip. Quality cows, calves and heifers typified by Chegwidden Hera, a super in-calf heifer. A stock bull Chegwidden Gismo was eye catching – book an appointment to see him. The competition was extremely interesting and not easy! Different management systems, grazing opportunities and different priorities but a common admiration and commitment to the breed. Clive C Roads FLAA For and on behalf of McCartneys LLP Judge

e began 2018 with our annual dinner in January at The Cottage Inn, Llandeilo. Members and friends gathered together and were joined by Mr Brian Jones as our guest speaker. Brian is the founder of the successful food company Castell Howell and was also the President of the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society in 2017. During the dinner we also presented a cheque of £300 to Brecon Mountain Rescue for the money raised during the previous Royal Welsh Winter Fair. After being postponed twice due to snow, our AGM was held in April where the following were elected as club officials: Chairman: Dafydd Jones Vice Chairman: Aled Davies Secretary: Anwen Jones Treasurer: Aled Davies Vice Treasurer: Debbie Cumming I would like to take this opportunity to thank Margaret Parry, who retired as Secretary, for her many years of service to the club. Club members enjoyed a great day at the Worcester Sale in May. Female and Overall Champion went to Gwili Gwenan from Martin Beynon and Callum Croft, she sold for 3,600gns. Male and Reserve Overall Champion went to Cwarre Hanukkah from Richard and Debbie Cumming, which sold for 2,900gns. Gwili Gwenan

During September, our Herd Competition Judge, Mr Richard Storer-Smith travelled the Country visiting numerous herds, although given the weather during the first day, a boat might have been a more appropriate mode of transport! Luckily the sun shone on the Sunday for our awards presentation kindly hosted by Chris Waters and family. As well as a herd visit we also received an interesting cow classification demonstration by Meurig James. Many thanks to Richard and Meurig for giving up their time and congratulations to all those who entered.

hese trips are shorter than they used to be and tend to be concentrated over a weekend. However, we still managed to fit in two herd visits, the stock judging competition, laser tag, a social evening and a presentation dinner. We began with a herd visit to Kilbride Farm, where we saw some fantastic stock. The field of yearling heifers was a spectacle. On numerous occasions throughout the

trip, the young members are given the opportunity to ask questions, and discuss amongst themselves aspects of breeding and rearing stock. At the end of the visit, the Robson family’s main piece of advice for breeders old and new was that to move forward with a herd, you must cull hard. Remove the females that aren’t producing good stock, and concentrate your efforts on those that are.

YOUNG MEMBERS We were fortunate to be part of the annual Charity BBQ event that is held at Dungannon. This year’s event included a raffle that had been held throughout the past show season, in memory of Thelma Gorman. A large sum of money was raised for the Air Ambulance. It was a fantastic event to be part of; well done to all those behind organising and promoting it. Saturday morning arrived, and with it the main event. The young members congregated after breakfast, armed with white coats, ties, pens and note paper. We travelled to the Hiltonstown herd, and were hosted by the Rodgers family for the stock judging. Some tremendous cattle were waiting to be judged, and there was, as always with stock

Over the course of the two farm visits, the young members were given the opportunity to take away knowledge gained from years of experience in breeding and selling cattle, and an understanding of new tools to use in the form of classification, all gained in a very relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. Moving away from cattle for a couple of hours, we took the YM to laser tag to have fun, build friendships and let that competitive side of them out! Judging by the sight of them upon their return to the mess house, they definitely had fun. Some were more competitive than others with innovative ways to ‘win’ (not naming names Chris); they had definitely worn themselves out and worked up an appetite for the presentation dinner that evening. Those that weren’t staying at the hotel all travelled to the presentation dinner, giving us the opportunity to thank the people who had made the trip possible, enjoy good company and, of course, find out who had won this year’s stock judging event. The full list of prize winners is shown overleaf.

judging competitions, easier classes and more difficult classes, causing debate amongst the competitors young and ‘old’! After judging, a classification demonstration was held. This was very educational, and allowed the young members to gain insight into the criteria to look for when choosing breeding females. Richard chatted amongst the young members as they looked around the rest of his herd; they discussed what he looks for when selecting new bloodlines into the herd, the pros and cons of using AI and selecting a stock bull. As a group they chatted about what they’d like to see and achieve in the future.

I have thoroughly enjoyed accompanying the young members on their trips; year on year there is an obvious increase in their knowledge base, friendships flourish, new friendships are made and there’s always lots of laughter along the way.

irstly, I would like to thank the Royal Ulster Agricultural Society for inviting me to judge the Simmental classes at their 150th Centenary Show, it was a great honour and a privilege for me to do so. I was on my first visit to Balmoral Show and I have to say I was most impressed by their showground and their fantastic new cattle building and judging rings, where the cattle were presented to me on a bright and beautiful day. Numbers were not high but still the Simmental exhibitors should be applauded for putting forward some quality youngstock before me. They were a credit

www.britishsimmental.co.uk

to our breed and all well presented. We kicked off the day with the Junior heifer class for heifers born in 2017. Top of the line was Cleenagh Ivy, a very sweet heifer with real presence and femininity, she was very eye catching and had drawn me to her as soon as she came into the ring. Following her was another heifer with real style which was Whitdrum Lady Della, she was giving away quite a bit of age and just carrying enough cover for her age but a worthy runner up. Cleenagh Ivy and Whitdrum Lady Della went on to be my Female and Reserve Female Champion respectively. The other two heifers in the


SIMMENTAL REVIEW 2018

bulls. However, my winner of this class, Ranfurly Impeccable 17 lived up to his name and definitely stole the show, going on to be Male and Overall Champion and following that with Interbreed Champion Performance Recorded Bull. A very well grown bull for his age, he has great style and presence about him as well as great length and clean lines, truly a credit to his breeders. Lisglass Impressor 17 stood second and followed on for Reserve Male Champion. He was also a strong bull for his age, but just lacking the sheer scale of the winner with Woodford Iceberg 17 in a very creditable 3rd place. My Overall Champion had to be Ranfurly Impeccable 17, as I said earlier, a bull with real power and class and an easy winner on the day. Following him was my Female Champion, the very sweet and correct Cleenagh Ivy who is a young heifer with a bright future. In conclusion I would like to thank all the exhibitors for an excellent show of young cattle they put in front of me as well as my ring stewards and the Northern Ireland Simmental Club and the Royal Ulster Show Society for the wonderful hospitality shown to me.

ROYAL SHOW REPORTS

class will go on to do a good job, just lacking the style of the first two heifers. The second class of the day was for heifers born from 1st July 2016 to 31st December 2016 and we had six strong entries forward. Leading the way for me in this class was Lisglass Helena with her stablemate Lisglass Honey in 2nd and Cloone Hilda in 3rd. There was little to split my first and second placed heifers; both were very fleshy with plenty of style about them. Lisglass Helena just won through on locomotion and length over Lisglass Honey and Cloone Hilda was again a sweet heifer but just lacked the scale of my first two. Onto the senior heifer class for heifers born from 1st January 2016 to 30th June 2016 where we had three entries. My clear winner in this class was Ranfurly Weikel 18th H2, a big powerful heifer. She has great length and scale to her, and handled herself very well. Castlemount Modesty 3 took 2nd place and Lummin Hattie was 3rd. Both my second and third prize heifers were good examples of the breed but were just overpowered on the day by the 1st placed heifer. Male entries were disappointing, and we had just one class of yearling CLEENAGH IVY - Female Champion, Reserve Junior Champion, Best Heifer & Reserve Overall Champion.

SIMMENTAL REVIEW 2018

JUDGE’S REPORT BY:

MICHAEL BARLOW

POPES RHONA - Female Champion & Supreme Champion and 1st place Heifer, born on or between 01.01.16 and 31.03.16 at the English National Show, Great Yorkshire

ROYAL SHOW REPORTS

ENGLISH Show NATIONAL Great Yorkshire M JUDGE: MICHAEL BARLOW

y sincere thanks to the Great Yorkshire Show and the British Simmental Cattle Society for the invitation to judge the 2018 English National Show. I would also like to thank all the stockmen and stockwomen who put forward a tremendous show of Simmental cattle for me to judge. The first junior heifer class was won by Chestermann Empire Stella, a very smart growthy heifer, who showed plenty of style. This is a difficult class to get a heifer ready for; very easy to overdo, to kill them with kindness.

The second junior heifer class was won by Heathbrow Girlie’s Ivy, a very impressive heifer with plenty of ring presence; she moved well and was an easy winner. My next class was won by a super heifer, Sterling FCUK Impuls, who I’m sure we will see a lot more of. This heifer went on to be my Reserve Female Champion. The next class was the Senior Heifer class, born from April onwards. This was a difficult class to judge for me as it came down to personal preference. The top three heifers in this class were very diverse, and could have been placed differently by another

ROYAL SHOW REPORTS judge. The class winner was Popes Princess Hettie; she had the most ring presence, with a great body and natural width. Next was the strongest class of the day, which was won by Popes Rhona, who went on to be my Overall Champion. She was eye-catching and stylish. I was initially concerned that she was over-fat on her tail head, however, after examining her I decided it felt more likely that she had banged herself. I also need to mention the second-placed heifer in this strong class, Midhope Heavenly Light. She was a big, and possibly the best bodied heifer, and very good over her plates. However, possibly due to an injury, her movement on the day was wrong, which stopped her going any further. The next class had an easy winner in Kennox Diva’s Gena, who was making a super job of her calf, which is what it’s all about. A very well made cow that just needed to be a bit bigger. Her bull calf went on to win the best calf, and I’m sure we will see him in the future. Next class, I couldn’t get wrong; it was won by Woodhall Erica, a very correct cow, who just lacked the style and presence to have pushed the champion aside. The senior cow class was won by Sterling Petra’s Cairo, the biggest animal on parade. She was up there to win overall when standing, but with locomotion very important, this was as far as she could go. The first of the bull classes was won by Skerrington Iceman; he was an easy winner - very modern with natural width and a great top. Next class was won by Williams I of the Tiger, a very stylish, clean bodied bull, but lacked the power to go further. The intermediate class was won by Camus Harold. The senior bull class only had the one entry, and was won by Curaheen Drifter. This bull carried his width all the way to his tail, and he would later stand Reserve Breed Champion. I had seen the bull earlier in the year, and actually thought he had improved as the show season had gone on. Many thanks for affording me the honour of judging this show.

HIGHLAND I

JUDGE: JOHN DYKES

was greatly honoured to be invited by the Royal Highland & Agricultural Society and the Simmental Society to judge the classes at the Royal Highland Show. To be invited by one’s peers to place their entries at such a prestigious event is a great vote of confidence to any livestock breeder. At the time of writing this report, our herd is in the process of being prepared for dispersal, but this in no way reduces my enthusiasm for the breed or confidence in a very exciting and progressive future for Simmentals and their breeders. After thirty-one years of involvement with this breed at all levels, placing the cattle at the Highland Show is indeed the icing on the cake. As a breeder of commercial cattle for

over fifty years, I have always been very conscious of the qualities that lead to ease of management and profitability. I hope that my placings of the many quality cattle paraded before me went some way to bear this out. As always at the ‘Highland’, the eleven classes led off with the youngest female class, yearling heifers. There were nine heifers forward with the eventual first place going to Frank Gwynne’s Chestermann Empire Stella. A very stylish young heifer who moved really well and has the potential to grow into a very impressive cow. Second was the Green’s Corskie Inita and third was Richard McCulloch’s Overhill House India. The next age class was well supported

with thirteen of the sixteen entries forward. The winner of this class was Jimmy McMillan’s Sterling FCUK Impuls – a very long, clean, whole coloured heifer with lots of style and beautifully shown. Perhaps not quite perfect behind but nevertheless a worthy winner. Second was Heather Duff’s Pitmudie Florin 2nd and third was Jim & Patricia Goldie’s Newbiemains Impressive. The July to December 2016 class was again well supported with twelve entries forward. The Green’s Corskie Herlande came out top in this strong class. A very sound, good moving heifer who went on to be Best Junior Female and eventually Best Junior Animal of the breed. Second and Reserve Junior Female was Gerald Smith’s Drumsleed Hilight. She also followed the first prize winner through to become Reserve Overall Junior Champion. Third in the class was Michael Durno’s Auchorachan Letta H1. The class for heifers born between 1st January and end of June 2016 was slightly smaller, but of a very high standard. The eventual winner of a very close-run decision was Heather Duff’s Pitmudie Havana, beating Jimmy & Vikki Wood’s Popes Rhona. Havana showed more breed character through her head and front end and went on to be Female Champion and Reserve Overall in a very strong female section. Third in this class to these two

A very free moving and growthy bull with all the right attributes to be a good herd sire. Second was Frank Gwynne’s Chestermann Imran and third was Skerrington Iceman from the Goldies. Intermediate bulls was a little better-filled class with twelve forward, to be led by Blackford Iolair. A red and white bull with exceptionally good fleshing and thickness throughout who went on to win the Interbreed Beefbreeder/Breedplan championship the following day. Second was Heather Duff’s Pitmudie Inverurie and third was Gerald Smith’s Drumsleed Iceman. The first senior bull class had only two entries forward and was won by Camus Harold, a two-year old bull from the Woods. Very well fleshed, plenty of width and a great mover. Second was Overhill House Hercules from Richard McCulloch. The last class of aged bulls only had two, but they were very impressive. Winner of the class was Blackford Galaxy

impressive animals was Corskie Harp from the Greens. Heifers born in 2015 was a strong class, with the older animals nursing calves. The winner was Gerald Smith’s Drumsleed Gretel. A well grown heifer with a tidy udder, making a good job of rearing her calf. Second was Andy Wilson’s Cairnview Tilly 4th. Not quite as strong as the first prize winner but correct in every way and rearing a classy calf very well. This combination went on to win the prize for the Best Cow & Calf, judged as a pair. Third in the class was a younger heifer from Richard McCulloch, Overhill House Giggle. The junior cow class had only three forward with Woodhall Erica in first place. A well grown dark coloured young cow from Richard McCulloch, nursing a good calf - a cow who will have a great future when she matures. Second was Gerald Smith’s Drumsleed Farina and third was Tom Henderson’s Annick Trixibelle 15th. The senior cow class was the smallest in the female section with only two forward but was won by the very impressive Sterling Petra’s Cairo. This seven-year old cow was nursing a well reared calf but is starting to show signs of age in her locomotion. She went on to be Reserve Female Champion. Second was Dargill Cassie, also seven


ROYAL SHOW REPORTS from Michael Barlow. On his second visit to Ingliston under new ownership, he surpassed last year’s successes and went on to win the Male Championship and the Overall Breed Champion. He is a big bull carrying a lot of condition but still moved actively and freely. The second bull was Richard McCulloch’s Curaheen Drifter, also an extremely thick, well fleshed bull but he did not move as freely as the first. After placing all the seventy-two animals in the classes, it was very satisfying to have all the first prize winners line up in a very pleasing show of top-class cattle. Blackford

Galaxy making an outstanding Overall Champion with Pitmudie Havana a very worth Reserve. I would just like to conclude by thanking and congratulating all the exhibitors for presenting such a fine show of cattle on a day when the weather was perfect for the event. Also, a big thank you to the directors, stewards and Scottish Simmental Club who, as always, excelled in their organisation of the judging, the welcome and the hospitality extended to Kate and myself on what will always be a memorable day. Thank you.

irstly, I would like to thank the RWAS for the kind invitation to judge the Simmental classes at their prestigious event. It was a privilege and an honour. The hospitality, friendliness and welcome shown by the show, the Welsh Simmental club and exhibitors was greatly appreciated by myself and Fiona. In the first class, the senior bulls exhibited three great examples of the Simmental breed. It was a difficult class to judge and I finally placed Blackford Galaxy first, thinking to myself that it was going to take something very special to beat him in the championship. Curaheen Drifter was a

www.britishsimmental.co.uk

close second and Camus Harold third. There was only one entry in class two, Williams I of the Tiger, a well grown correct bull that received the first prize. In class three, the Williams herd was doing the business again with a real fleshy young bull, Williams Invincible, who was placed first. Following in second place was Storersmith Infrared. As the Male Championship commenced, Galaxy led the first prize animals into the ring. To me, he was the obvious Male Champion. The Reserve went to Curaheen Drifter, the bull that stood second to him in his class.

The first of the female classes, class 4, saw two cows enter the ring, both rearing calves. I placed Sterling Petra’s Cairo first. As soon as she walked into the ring, her power and show presence was impossible to go past. Second was Woodhall Erica owned by Richard McCulloch. A hard working cow with a great udder, making a tremendous job of her heifer calf. In class 5 first place went to Popes Rhona, a well grown and classy heifer. Second went to Overhill House Hesse, a stylish dark red heifer. Cwarre Rosie’s Hyacinth won class 6, a sweet heifer with lots of character, followed closely by Sterling Ellie’s Heidi. Class 7 had six entries. An easy first was Jimmy McMillan’s Sterling FCUK Impuls. Second was Popes Nelly’s Ilia and a very close third was Storersmith Iridessa. The Female Championship went to Sterling Petra’s Cairo, with Sterling FCUK Impuls in reserve. The Overall Championship was a very impressive line-up, with two really good examples of the breed, but on the day the cow, Sterling Petra’s Cairo for the Borlase family shone out as my champion, with Michael Barlow’s Blackford Galaxy as reserve. I would like to congratulate everyone who took part in the show and thank everyone who made it a very memorable day.

o start I’d like to thank the Scottish Simmental Club for the absolute honour and privilege of judging their National Show. The high standard of cattle put before me were an absolute credit to the breeders and the Simmental breed. Class 1. Bulls born before 31/12/16. Quite a difficult class with three different types of bull. The first place went to Curaheen Drifter, a well fleshed, long, deep bodied bull who moved very well on the day. Second was Newbiemains Fame and Fortune, who on the day out powered Auroch Hudson who was giving away quite a bit of age. Class 2. First was Blackford Iolair, a very big, growthy bull who was a different type to the second place Islavale Irish, a

www.britishsimmental.co.uk

long fleshy bull who had plenty of breed character. Blackford Iolair then went on to be Reserve Male Junior Champion. Third was Pitmudie Inverurie, a deep, well fleshed bull, just lacking the length and power of the two bulls placed above him. Class 3. First was Islavale Imperial, long, well fleshed, great movement and full of breed character, a bull that is going to have an outstanding future. He went on to be my Junior Champion and Reserve Male Champion. Second was Islavale Isaac, another good bull brought from the same stable. Well fleshed but on the day didn’t move as well as his yard mate. Third was Corskie Infinity, a good bull just lacking the flesh and power of the 2 bulls above him. Class 4. First was Cairnorrie Irn-Bru,

a good young modern bull, well fleshed for his age and another one to look out for in the future. Second was Woodhall Innerwick, another tidy bull but just lacked the flesh of the bull placed above him. Third was Blackford Island Legacy, a good calf but for me on the day just lacked the style of the 2 bulls above him. Class 5. First was Islavale Emerald. From the moment she walked in the ring I knew she was going to take some stopping. A cow with amazing presence and full of breed character. Everything I looked for in a top class cow. She went on to be my Female Champion, then Overall Simmental Champion and Reserve Interbreed Champion. Second was Drumsleed Farina, another wonderful cow put before me who, on any other day, would have been a worthy champion but unfortunately was just out-powered. Drumsleed Farina then went on to be my Reserve Female Champion. Third was Drumsleed Gretel, another good cow working hard, but just wasn’t as good on the plates as her stable mate on the day. Drumsleed Farina and Drumsleed Gretel also went on to be part of the best Group of Three animals and became Reserve Interbreed Group of Three. Class 6. First was Pitmudie Havana, a very smart heifer, full of breed character

and I’m sure she will become a good breeder. Second was Corskie He-enna, another cracking heifer who will also go on. Third place was Pitgaveny Gamble, another good strong heifer who on the day just lacked the condition of the 2 heifers above her. Class 7. First was Blackford Hyalite, a super strong heifer with a fantastic head and big ears to match. Full of breed character and a worthy winner of this strong class. Second was Corskie Herlande, another good heifer and a slightly different type to my winner but still I’m sure will become a very good cow. Third, Corskie Herb, another good heifer but in my opinion on the day a little shorter in length than her stable mate. Class 8.

SIMMENTAL REVIEW 2018

JUDGE’S REPORT BY:

CWARRE IDAHO 17 - Junior Male Champion, Male Champion, Overall Champion, Best Animal Bred by Exhibitor & 1st place Bull, born on or after 01.04.17 at the Welsh National Show

ROYAL SHOW REPORTS

WELSH NATIONAL Show I

JUDGE: CHRIS MARTINDALE

t was a great honour to be invited to judge the Welsh National Show in Pembrokeshire and I would like to thank the Pembrokeshire Agricultural Society for giving me this opportunity. I would also like to thank all the exhibitors who worked extremely hard to get their stock looking tremendous and presenting me with some difficult decisions to make. Everyone made me very welcome and the stewards helped to make the day run smoothly, a most enjoyable day. My first class was the young April bulls

and I was immediately impressed by my first placed bull Cwarre Idaho – a well fleshed bull with lots of style. In second place was a bull with potential for the future, Crugmelyn Idwal. Third place was a strong bull Crugmelyn Ilky Bar Kid and fourth was a young bull, Cwarre Iowa, with exceptional length and one to watch for the future. The second class was young bull born after 1st September 2017 and although there was only one in the class, Gwili Idwal was a sweet calf with a tremendous back end, full of muscle.

The January class was won by Deerhurst Impulse, a very correct heifer which exhibited great presence in the ring. She went on to be Junior & Female Champion. Second was Mainview Jezabel, a big strong heifer but just not as neat as the first. Third was Dyfed Foxy Lady 2nd who just lacked condition on the The calf class was won by Cwarre day. Rosie’s Ilex, a very sweet young heifer who The April class was won by Crugmelyn exhibited herself well on parade. Second Icing Sugar, a super heifer with lots of was a very young calf, Cefngwlad Jennie potential, second from the same exhibitor which just lacked the power of my winner. was Crugmelyn Icecream, a long heifer My Champion was the very stylish bull that did just not quite have the style of the Cwarre Idaho and my Reserve Champion winner. was the sweet heifer Deerhurst Impulse.

Club Secretaries ANN JUKES

I

have been married to Tony for 52 years!!!!! We have three lovely daughters and four wonderful grandchildren. We farmed for twenty years at Tenterden in Kent. I ran the farm and Tony worked in the City to pay for it. We ran 350 North Country mule sheep using Suffolk Tups. I had always had a yearning to try some cattle.  It was in July 1989 and I was going in to Ashford Market just to have a look!  As he left for work Tony said, “ don’t spend too much money but don’t buy rubbish”. I had very little knowledge of cattle, but I saw what I thought were beautiful. They were three lovely pale coloured heifers. I did not know then what a Simmental was but from then on, I was hooked, and it has cost Tony money ever since!! We have both thoroughly enjoyed breeding Simmentals and equally we have had our lives enriched by all those supporters of the breed we have met and some of whom have become our very closest friends.

Focus on ONE OF OUR

Young Members HEATHER DUFF

I

live at Pitmudie Farm, Brechin. We run 120 commercial cows and 60 pedigree cows. The pedigree herd was founded in 2011 with a Drumsleed cow that was in the commercial herd, her daughter Beaujolais started up the Pitmudie Prefix and off we went from there. I took a late interest in the farm and livestock. My decision to join the Young Farmers and compete in the overwintering competitions and helping at home more changed my perspective on farming.  I then ventured up to SRUC Aberdeen to study Agriculture and after a brilliant five years I graduated with a BSc Honours degree. A year on I have started a part time job with Agri-Lloyd as an independent sales agent for Angus and spend the rest of my time with pedigrees.

SALE PRECHECKS Please be aware of the following before entering Simmental Cattle to any of our Society sales: •

Testicles Bull’s testicles will be measured and inspected by the veterinary surgeon. They must be a minimum size of 36 cm in circumference (14 Months), and 38 cm (over 18 months), measured at the widest point of the scrotum. The vet retains the right at his discretion to reject any bulls with uneven or soft testicles. Progeny from bulls with small/uneven/soft testicles which fail inspections will not be accepted into the BSCS herd book 10 months after the sale inspection date. Bulls which may have suffered injury will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Warts Animals with active warts must be treated by the member’s veterinary surgeon and a vet’s certificate should be available for inspection at the Sale

Teeth Teeth must make proper contact with the dental pad of the upper jaw but due allowance will be made for the age and dental development of the animal. Any animal with severely undershot or severely overshot jaws will be rejected and progeny from such animals will not be accepted into the BSCS herd book 10 months after the sale inspection date. Where the veterinary surgeon declares that an animal is marginally overshot or undershot that animal may still be offered through the sale but will be excluded from the show. The Auctioneer will announce that at the point of inspection of animal was found to be marginally overshot or undershot

General Health Animals with active infections, a contagious disease, or a disorder or condition, may be rejected by the veterinary surgeon. Minor injuries may be treated by a veterinary surgeon in the market but this must be announced at the time of sale. The decisions of the veterinary surgeon appointed by the Society are final and binding. Any animal which is considered by the vet to be not in a healthy and proper condition to be presented as representing a good specimen of the breed at an official collective sale, will be rejected.
