SIMMENTAL REVIEW 2019

President’s Message A

t the time of writing this message to members we are now firmly into 2020. Can I say what a privilege it is to be the Society’s President in this landmark 50th anniversary year for the breed and the Society in the UK. It is a year in which the Society will rightly reflect and celebrate but we will also look forward to taking aim at the years ahead and with a view to positioning the breed promotionally and technically at the forefront of the British beef industry. We are working hard on the 50th anniversary events planned for July and August 2020 and I very much hope you will get involved by entering the planned show and sale or just by coming along to support what will be a terrific Simmental showcase. If the Society can be of support to any breeders in need of help attending, please do give me a call. The Simmental breed had a solid calendar year in 2019 with a good demand across the sales in what remains challenging industry circumstances for commercial beef producers. Simmental pedigree registrations have remained firm, very much in line with recent years and likely to be maintained at the 7500 mark. It is extremely encouraging that we have continued to gain new members through the year and the membership figure is very stable at just under 1150. I’d like to warmly welcome all the new faces to the Society and at the same time thank all members for your continued support, it is greatly appreciated. At the summer and county shows through 2019, the Simmental breed has excelled with some terrific cattle securing a number of high profile interbreed titles. This resulted in a tremendous national promotion of the breed and congratulations to all the respective exhibitors. All of the hard work put in by the breeders, and the cost that goes into showing, is fully recognised and again is greatly appreciated by the Society. Therefore, on behalf of the Council and personally, I want to take this opportunity to thank you most sincerely for your commitment and for promoting the breed to the very highest standard. Of one thing there is no doubt – the demand for quality Simmental cross cattle is very strong. Such cattle and the prices realised are the result of the quality bulls being produced by you the breeder. I believe as breeders we constantly need to be more selective in the animals we retain for breeding. We must strive to continually improve our breed for those functional characteristics which are of importance to the commercial beef producer and I believe those traits are ease of fleshing with good conformation,

Michael Barlow President ease of calving, good legs, locomotion and feet. In writing this message, it is the time of year where we are looking forward to the Spring sales at the respective sale centres and I wish everybody every success. Building on last year’s achievement, the Worcester Spring Sale was a credit to every breeder in attendance and Stirling continues to be the flagship sale centre for the breed. Again in 2019 we were treated to a very special weekend for the young members trip when visiting the Ward family at Westridge and the McCulloch’s at Overhill House. These trips continue to be both educational and an inspiration to our younger members and thoroughly enjoyed by all attending, with hospitality second to none. Thank you to all involved. As you are aware, 2019 was a year of some transition and again I would like to acknowledge Neil Shand and his work as he leaves the Society after some ten years at the forefront of the organisation. A huge amount of work goes into running the society behind the scenes and we are always well supported by the office staff. A big thank you is also extended to Julie Holmes and Karen Vince for their continued hard work throughout 2019. I would also like to thank all Council members for their support through the past year, and with a special thank you to Stewart Stronach as Vice President. Finally, I would like to welcome our new Council members and look forward to working with them to promote our fantastic breed. The strength of the Society is the members and the assurance is there that the Council are fully focussed on delivering the professional level of core and promotional services that you would expect. It is also an objective of the year to ensure clear and open communication with the membership on an ongoing basis and we welcome your thoughts and input to all Society news and matters. I very much hope and trust that collectively we can celebrate and enjoy the breed’s fiftieth anniversary year. Let’s make it a truly memorable celebration of all things British Simmental!

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

012

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 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 pre-sale semen tested has received £50 towards the cost of the test from the Society on receipt of a copy of the fertility report. This has now been reduced to £25 during 2020 and will be phased out at the end of the year. • 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.


SIMMENTAL REVIEW 2019

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.

M

y dad and I have a very small farm keeping 10 Simmental cows. We started breeding pedigree Simmentals in 2003. I always had a great interest in farming growing up. Our first trip to Stirling was in 2010, and we have been back a few times since. I started out serving my apprenticeship as a joiner while doing a course in Greenmount Agriculture College. I stuck with the joinery for 15 years but now I’m a full time AI man which I love doing, even though it can be 7 days a week. I married Donna in 2010 and have 3 great children Charlie 7, Jack 5 and Annie 18 months. I had a great interest in Gaelic football playing for my club and county (Down) up to under 21. Then I found out I was no good at it! I have enjoyed my years breeding Simmentals and have met a lot of great people along the way.

I

am Cornish born and reared at Bolankin for 38 years. The farm consists of seventy acres on the challenging shallow granite soils of the Land’s End peninsular in west Cornwall. On leaving school in 1998 I enrolled into Duchy College on a day release scheme to study agriculture. Through working and training I gained valuable experience finishing in 2003 with the City and Guilds qualification in Farm Management. I have worked in the livestock industry ever since on both dairy and beef enterprises. In 1995 at the age of thirteen, in partnership with my uncle Edward White, the Bolankin Herd of pedigree Simmentals was established starting with foundation females from TOLVER. Additions followed from LESCEAVE CLIFF and PENNANCE together with bulls from BARGUS and SWAY. In 2009 the herd and farm were divided with my half continuing the Bolankin prefix. I decided to concentrate on the Hannadante family of eight cows with bloodlines originating from the Hazel Court and Heywood herds and to become high health accredited gaining elite status. The Bolankin Herd has won the best herd in Cornwall 2011 and the South West in 2012 alongside numerous prizes in the show ring. During twenty-five years in the breed the Cornwall Simmental Club has played a huge part in adding to my interest providing opportunities to travel the British Isles and Republic of Ireland visiting differing farms and herds. It has been an immense pleasure to meet fellow breeders and benefit from their generous help and advice. I have felt privileged to be in the company of cattlemen and women that I hold in the highest esteem for their knowledge of the breed. In 2018 I was honoured to become Chairman of the Cornwall Simmental Club a wonderful group of supportive friends and breeders. Now I’m looking forward to serving on the BSCS council continuing to meet existing contacts and making new friends whilst working hard to promote the breed we are all passionate about. In the past I have held office in the local Young Farmers Club. Currently in my spare time I am an active participant in ploughing match clubs and serve the community as a local parish councillor.

M

y grandfather took on the tenancy of Auchorachan (Gaelic for “fields of gold”) in 1953. Auchorachan is a hill farm with a very short growing season so we have always produced store cattle to sell at a year old, mostly Charolais and Simmentals, the Simmental breed has been the back bone of the herd for as long as I can remember, with most of the commercial cows being Simmental crosses. The first Simmental bull I can remember my late grandfather buying, was Cloford Kernel, he had a massive affect on the herd at the time, with so many of his daughters retained. My first pedigree females were purchased in 2002, from the Ravensworth dispersal, and a cow from a local farm sale called “Greenlea Hilly”, and together with a few select purchases from Delfur, Woodhall, and Celtic, pedigree females now number around 50. The 2 most influential stockbulls so far, were both purchased in 2006, Saltire Talant and Clonagh Tiger Gallant. We also have over 100 cross bred cows and keep 600 Scottish Blackface breeding ewes. I have a long history of breeding and showing commercial show calves, having some success at local and national shows, but with the progression to more extreme types in the commercial show ring I have lost a little interest, as I prefer a more correct, balanced type animal with a nice head, so now I mainly concentrate on showing the Simmentals. I find it interesting to see how versatile the breed is, with different types to suit different situations, and how other countries have different breeding goals, like Ireland with more of a carcase emphasis, and Denmark and other parts of Europe chasing the polled gene. I run the farm along with my father Leslie, with help from my wife Morag, and our son Craig, who works at the local Glen Grant distillery, our daughter Emma is currently at university in Glasgow studying psychology. So with no other staff on the farm I don’t have time for much else, although I do like to watch a bit of football on TV, and I play darts for three different teams, which all won their respective leagues last year!

event. Once again, we had a very good stand, and being on my home patch, I was delighted to be awarded 1st prize in the Breed Society Exhibit category.

We were fortunate enough to be able to hold an open day at the end of September, courtesy of David, Kath Edwards and Fran Ford. Events like these are always easy when the host farmers have enthusiasm for both the breed and the message we were trying to give on the day. We are indebted to David, Kath and Fran for their commitment to the open day. Ed Simmons gave a detailed presentation based around pelvic measurements, and their effectiveness in helping to select the future of a breeding herd. I gave a talk on sustainability in beef production, and a very interesting discussion was had by all present. Drinks were kindly supplied by Crediton Milling, and the British Simmental Cattle Society provided a barbecue. A great day was had by all.

Next stop was the Beef Expo at Carlisle at the beginning of November. This was the launch of the new promotional boards for the stand, and we were very pleased with how

they looked. The event didn’t appear to be as busy as last year; numbers seem to have been declining at this event over the past few years.

As usual the Society had stands at both the English Winter Fair and the Welsh Winter Fair.

A Day in Kelso:

A Canadian’s Experience at the

Border Union Cattle Show Sabrina Kooistra

W

hile it should not have come as so much of a shock to us, our day abroad in the town of Kelso– one of our very first days in Scotland– it poured. Where we come from, it was a clear-therainy-day-fund, pouring-cats-and-dogs kind of day, and it showed few signs of relenting. But there we stood, taking shelter with the cattle under the protection of the big top, watching our new Scottish friends trudge through the mud– seemingly unfazed. Indeed, this was one of the signs that we had entered into mildly unfamiliar territory. Our family resides on a small farm in southern Alberta, Canada’s Western-most prairie province. While this affords us the tranquility and space that we have grown accustomed to, it also offers the opportunity to play a part in one of Alberta’s prized and equally famed exports: agriculture, and more specifically, beef cattle. Our stock consists of SimmentalAngus cross, and of course, the best in the herd were brought annually to various 4-H shows. The 4-H program has, for over a century, been an integral part of growing up in rural Canada. As members of the local 4-H Beef Club, my sister and

024

I learned the skills to market a steer and the art of building a herd, and proper show etiquette became a function of this process. Naturally, the basic principles and purpose of cattle showing differ only slightly between Scottish and Canadian shows; however, our interest piqued when we discovered that there is no universal handbook for exactly how to show cattle, making our visit to the Border Union Cattle Show as informative as it was entertaining. While in pursuit of finding activities to do and events to attend during our time in Scotland, my father came across the Border Union Show. Intrigued by the cattle component, he soon contacted the Scottish Club of the British Simmental Cattle Society and eventually proposed the idea of my sister and I showing cattle in one of the classes. A few months later, we arrived at the Border Union Show at 8:00am to get our bearings and observe the beginning of the show. Simmental, Limousin, Saler, and Charolais breeders were also present, parading their stock in the rain, and this continued well into the afternoon. Participants had made long treks from all around Scotland, some even travelling several hours, in order to compete in the Border Union Cattle Show.


- Cattle are shown with double ropes and nasal rings as their halter; we customarily show with a simple leather halter. - Long, white jackets are worn in many Scottish shows. An embroidered club shirt with blue or black jeans is customary in many Canadian shows. - At home, having a single-blade comb in one’s back pocket is essential as it is recommended that a show person conduct grooming touch-ups when in the ring. We did not notice this at the Border Union Cattle Show. We also noticed a measurable variance in the breeds of cattle preferred in the region. While a cattle show in Alberta serves as an exhibition of several breeds, Angus and Simmental cattle generally dominate, number-wise. In addition, there was also a notable difference in the frame and build of the Simmentals we raise and those present at the Border Union Cattle Show. The Simmentals present were much larger than our Simmental cattle, which posed as a new challenge in the ring. Similarly, showing a bull– and a large one at that– was a new and slightly daunting experience as my sister and I had only shown calves, heifers, cows, and steers prior-to; however, the even temperament and calming demeanour of the bull and heifer dispelled any previous fears or concerns. We showed in the outdoor ring as part of the Young Handlers competition– our baptism into the world of Scottish cattle showing, so-to-speak. Yes, we had joined the Scots in trudging through the mud and the rain. Though a small roster of participants in the Young Handlers competition, it was, nevertheless, a memorable and educational experience, and its memory will live on through the red and blue ribbons we would soon pack up and carry home. Eventually we bid our goodbyes and went to discover the happenings of the remaining events and pavilions at the

SIMMENTAL REVIEW 2019

After observing several classes, it became clear that there were some new rules and etiquette we needed to learn in order to conform to the expectations of this new ring. Here are a few differences we noticed:

Border Union Show. We traversed the sheep, rabbits, and poultry, checking out other breeds we had never seen in the flesh before. We also approached a judge in the rabbit pavilion who took some time to walk through the judging criteria for the best bunnies. And of course, this was also a prime opportunity to get ahold of some local fare for our lunch. Yes, it would seem that we got what we wished for: an authentic Scottish agricultural experience not without the charm and spirited sense of community familiar to us in our rural home. And so, we owe many thanks to a number of individuals and groups. Sincerest gratitude is due to the Scottish Club of the British Simmental Cattle Society for your warmth, patience, and generous hospitality in permitting us to take part in the Border Union Cattle Show. Many thanks, specifically, to Tom Henderson and Richard Pettit for organizing this opportunity to participate. Thanks to Nick and Nadia Gwynne (Chestermann Farms) and Neil Shand (CEO of British Simmental Cattle Society) for sharing your knowledge and gifting us with a handpainted, commemorative plate. Finally, a special thanks to Frank Gwynne, and Gerald, Morag, and Douglas Smith for loaning us your docile giants, Brandane J Low and Drumsleed Jagger, respectively, to show in the Young Handlers competition. It truly was a pleasure, as much as it was a privilege to learn from your expertise and be offered the opportunity to spend the day observing and participating alongside you. You were all the most kind and generous souls one could hope to become acquainted with. On behalf of my family, we thank you, again. After nine years of showing cattle, attending the Border Union Cattle Show was, for my sister and I, a unique way to conclude our amateur showing careers. It was an opportunity to export our childhood wonder and deep-seated rural roots, step into the shoes of cattlemen across the pond, and perhaps most profoundly, to foster what we hope to be a long-lasting relationship with our newfound Scottish friends– even when the bellowing of stock, the calming cacophony of heavy rain, and the backdrop of the Border Union Show become but a distant memory.

immental breeders are reaping the rewards from introducing InVitro embryo Production (IVP), a service that allows greater flexibility and improved animal welfare from specialist assisted breeding company, AB Europe. “IVP delivers all the benefits of traditional flushing (MOET) however the service offers many more advantages which in turn result in IVP being an attractive competitior for UK cattle breeders,” says AB Europe’s vet, Gavin Tait. “IVP accelerates embryo production from donor cows, whilst maintaining pregnancy hold rates for both fresh and frozen embryos with the equivalent success to its predecessor.” He adds: “The IVP process produces embryos from collected oocytes (unfertilised eggs). The oocytes are fertilised within the laboratory by selected semen and cultured for seven days until fully developed embryos can be transferred or frozen.” AB Europe offers a unique on farm donor collection – a process that takes approximately 15 minutes per donor after initial set up, thereby minimising stress. Alternatively, clients can book donors into our livery to obtain multiple collections that are tailored to the donors individual requirements.

achieved 80% pregnancy rate resulting in eight great calves on the ground mainly by our own stockbull, Team Celtic 11 who we have found to be the most successful with the process. Others used were Popes Barclay selected for ease of calving and Curaheen Bandit. These first IVP calves included Stirling 2019 reserve senior champion, Wolfstar Irn Bru and Wolfstar I Like You, who has joined the donor team. He adds: “The collection process is very straight forward; the donors don’t require any preparation or injections so they’re very relaxed. We simply bring them into the yard for Gavin Tait to make the collection and the job is complete within 30 minutes. The recipients from our commercial herd were in rising condition, we brought them in straight off grass and ready for Gavin to carry out the implantation process.”

Ross King and his father, Alex have successfully introduced IVP to speed up embryo production and accelerate genetic gain within their Wolfstar pedigree Simmental herd. “In the last 12 months we’ve flushed four of our best females, achieved 22 embryos in total and they’re safely waiting in the tank for implantation or alternatively for sale,” Ross explains. “We chose Wolfstar Flame whose first son took the February 2019 Stirling reserve senior championship and sold for 8,500gns. The other three females were cows with good conformation. “We’re using IVP to take our 40 cow pedigree herd to the next level; it’s a service which is enabling us to select specific sires to cross with some of our best breeding females producing high genetic merit progeny for potential sale. “Furthermore, IVP has the potential to provide us with more choice of homebred bulls to retain for breeding purposes – that’s an opportunity we really value since we are very strict on Team Jackpot sold for 14,000gns in Stirling, October 2019. He’s biosecurity.” one of the first IVP produced bulls from the Team herd, based at The King’s IVP journey Kirkton of Mailer, Perth and owned by Robert Macgregor - another Simmental breeder who is successfully using IVP to exploit some of began in 2016. “We initially his best genetics. implanted 10 fresh embryos,

Johne’s Disease Test Update

6 BVDFree England

The PCR method used by SRUC Veterinary Services for detecting MAP (the organism that causes Johne’s Disease) in faeces is changing. The new method has recently been UKAS accredited and involves an additional sample preparation stage and a change of test kit to give improved sensitivity for MAP detection. The new test requires a larger volume of sample; please ensure that you submit more than 10g of faeces for testing. The new PCR method can detect MAP positive samples from faeces as reliably as the PCR test on cultures grown from faeces, but it allows greater efficiency and reduces the time required for testing from more than 42 days to fewer than 10 days. Due to the improved sensitivity of the test, it is critical that best practice is observed during sample collection to prevent contamination, such as the changing of gloves between samples and samples being taken directly from the rectum of the animal. Also please note that all samples for the scheme must be collected by your vet and submitted in standard faeces sample pots: it is not acceptable to submit faeces in gloves.

AgRE Calc© carbon calculator Find out where you sit on the carbon scale … and how to improve with the AgRE Calc© carbon calculator from SAC Consulting The need for farming to measure, manage and reduce its carbon footprint is growing steadily driven by the demands of consumers, governments and retailers. A resource use assessment, also known as a carbon footprint shows the quantity of greenhouse gas emissions produced from routine farm activities, highlighting areas where changes can be made that, when implemented, will reduce emissions. The three main greenhouse gases produced from agriculture include carbon dioxide, produced by burning fossil fuels; methane, produced as a natural by-product of animal digestion and nitrous oxide, which is released from soils following the application of nitrogen fertiliser (manufactured and organic) and soil disturbance. SAC Consulting has been helping the livestock sector measure and reduce its carbon footprint for over 10 years and has developed an on-line service for the industry; AgRE Calc©. Backed by the latest science from SRUC Research coupled to the on-farm skills and knowledge of our consultants; AgRE Calc© offers a very practical and accurate assessment of a farm’s performance for carbon and associated Key Performance Indicators. This agricultural resource efficiency calculator determines on-farm emissions down to enterprise and per unit of output basis; the most meaningful comparisons when considering food production. Only by breaking down emissions and resource use by enterprise can weaknesses be identified and actions to improve performance be highlighted. Making more efficient use of resources i.e. inputs, strongly correlates with reduced production costs per kg of output, improving profitability of the farm business. Typically, we find that the better performing farms have the lowest carbon emissions. Currently we have over 2,000 beef, sheep and dairy farms on our on-line database for comparison. This service is currently supporting Beef Efficiency Scheme participants in Scotland and supply chain groups across the UK. If you would like to learn more about the service and how SAC Consulting could help you lower your carbon footprint please contact; Julian Bell 0131 603 7524 – Julian.bell@sac.co.uk and visit: www.agrecalc.com

CHeCS Audit Report and what to do with Added Animals! The CHeCS auditors continue to inspect our members, selecting a number of farms at random each year. Although the majority of the feedback from the audits shows that adherence to the CHeCS rules is generally very good, the main issues that arise are around purchased animals that are added to accredited herds. The general advice from the CHeCS rules is that whenever possible, cattle should only be added to an accredited herd if they are from a herd that is accredited free from the disease in question, or in the case of Johne’s Disease and Neospora at Risk Level 1. Otherwise they must be placed in isolation for the required period and tested for the diseases in question. The rules also outline the specific requirements for each disease scheme separately. An excerpt of the CHeCS technical document, focusing solely on the rules for added animals can be found at: www.bit.ly/PCHS_AddedAnimals If, for example, your herd is accredited for BVD, Johne’s Disease and IBR and the only suitable animal(s) that you can find for purchase are BVD accredited and with a Johne’s Disease risk level that matches or is greater than your own, but no accreditation for IBR, then they must be isolated and tested for IBR in line with the rules or your whole herd’s IBR accreditation is being put at risk. It is also worth noting that even if you buy from an accredited herd, the animal will lose its status if they have mixed with nonaccredited stock at any point (e.g. at a market, during transport or at a show without a section for accredited animals) and they will need to be isolated and tested. Also wherever possible when buying an accredited animal you should request the certification of accreditation from the source herd and send in a copy with any sample to be tested.

SIMMENTAL REVIEW 2019

Mycoplasma Infections in Dairy Herds Mycoplasma infections are commonly recognised in cattle. There are quite a diverse range of Mycoplasma species with some causing disease while others do not. Of these Mycoplasma bovis is probably the most important. There are certain key facts that need to be considered when investigating, managing and treating Mycoplasma bovis infections and some of them are discussed below: 1. Mycoplasma species differ from many bacteria in that they do not have a cell wall. This is not just of interest to scientists as it means that some of the commonly used antibiotics which act against bacterial cell walls (such as the penicillins) will not work. As with all bacterial diseases, deciding on an appropriate choice of antibiotic, targeting that treatment to the right animals early in the disease process and reviewing treatment outcomes is crucial for success. Veterinary advice here is crucial. 2. The main disease presentations seen with Mycoplasma bovis infections are pneumonia, middle ear disease causing an ear droop or head tilt, mastitis and arthritis seen as non-foot lameness with joint swellings. Unfortunately many of these problems can be chronic with a variable response to treatment. Mycoplasma bovis infection may also occur with no clinical signs at all. Clearly Mycoplasma bovis is not the only potential cause of any of these disease signs. A veterinary assessment of the disease situation on farm, plus taking appropriate samples for diagnostic testing will be required to consider the role Mycoplasma species are playing on farm. 3. One of the main risk factors for having Mycoplasma bovis infections in a herd is a large herd size and purchasing cattle. Ideally keeping disease out by having a closed herd is the way to go. If you can’t, consider the potential risks from what you are buying with your vet and how you are going to mitigate the risk. Always consider that there is potential risk from bringing in carrier cows into a herd that is not infected, as well as a risk in bringing disease free non-immune cows into a herd with active infection. 4. One of the main ways that infection spreads to calves is through feeding infected / contaminated cows milk and colostrum. Once established in a group of calves then it will spread mainly by aerosol transmission. Clearly we need to feed colostrum to calves and therefore in endemically infected herds pasteurisation of colostrum could be considered. Not feeding cows’ milk or waste milk to heifer or bull calves will also significantly reduce the risk of disease transmission. In addition to ensuring adequate draft free ventilation without chilling calves, keeping calf group size small and the age range within the calf group narrow helps reduce the risk of disease spread from older to younger calves. Getting as close as possible to an ‘all in all out system’ will really help. 5. For calf pneumonia, Mycoplasma bovis usually acts in combination with other viruses and bacteria. Therefore taking steps to ensure optimal environmental and feeder hygiene, ensuring calves are well fed with sufficient good quality calf milk replacer and reducing the challenge and effect of other respirator pathogens through vaccination will help for Mycoplasma control. 6. Surveillance data shows that Mycoplasma bovis accounts for less than 1% of the diagnosed causes of mastitis with other more common mastitis bacteria such as E coli or Streptococcus uberis being far more important. That said, on an individual herd basis some herds can experience a significant outbreak of Mycoplasma bovis mastitis, sometimes in conjunction with an arthritis at the same time. Mycoplasma are generally considered a ‘contagious’ type of bacteria, that will spread from cow to cow in the parlour. Creating a milking routine to minimise cow to cow spread is the aim, and again this will control much more than just Mycoplasma. In some cases, if Mycoplasma become established as a major cause of mastitis, more specific controls (like segregation or culling of carrier cows) cows can be required.

Member Profile: David & Annabel Stanners Low Chesterhope Farm, West Woodburn, Northumberland

David and Annabel are first generation farmers who started their herd of Luing cattle at Knowsley Estate in Merseyside. Having previously worked as stock managers for Knowsley, the estate’s decision to no longer own cattle themselves lead to David and Annabel becoming contract farmers on the estate so that they could keep their own herd. Breeding pedigree Luings, they became members of PCHS in 2013 in order to gain accreditation for BVD and Johne’s Disease, allowing them to sell cattle at the breed society sales. Until February 2019, David was also the chairman of the Luing Cattle Society for two years. While BVD accreditation was achieved easily through check tests, two positive results for Johne’s Disease over the years mean that the herd is currently Risk Level 2, but hopes to achieve Risk Level 1 at the next herd test. In order to progress their business, David and Annabel began to search for a farm of their own, looking at land as far south as Derbyshire to as far north as Aberdeen, but by chance eventually settling on a property in their native Northumberland. Relocating to the farm at West Woodburn in October 2016, they now farm a total of 600 acres, 200 of which is fell, 300 of rough ground or pasture and 100 acres that can be mowed, running a herd of 80 cows, as well as a flock of 700 ewes. Dr Grove-White of the University of Liverpool put together a health plan for the herd’s move to Northumberland. As the herd had never had neighbouring cattle at Knowsley, the plan recommended vaccinating for BVD, to avoid the naïve herd being introduced to the disease in their new home, as well as advice for IBR, ticks, liver fluke and more. The farm’s vet, Lee-Anne Oliver of Scott Mitchell Associates in Hexham, believes that as well as the good management practices in place, the herd’s freedom from BVD is a major contributing factor to the remarkably low antibiotic usage on the farm, with no calf pneumonia present. Other performance data shows that the management practices and husbandry on the farm have certainly paid off: • Heifers are calved at two years old with excellent fertility rates (97% of cows to the bull weaned a calf in 2016) • A tight calving pattern allowing them all to be weaned at the same time (up to 66% of calves being born in the first 3 weeks of the calving period) • Very low mortality rates for calves under one month of age (0 – 1%) • Low mortality rates from one month old to weaning (2% in 2014, 0% in 2016 and 1% in 2017). The herd is closed, with the only exception being purchased bulls. Accredited bulls are always sourced, with the majority coming from Johne’s Disease Risk Level 1 herds. Any heifers that are not retained in the herd are sold for breeding stock at the Luing society sales, while bullocks are currently sold as stores either privately or at the native breed sales at Hexham, although David hopes to sell some as bulls at the society sales in the near future. Looking ahead, the Stanners have considered the IBR scheme; however several of their cows have been vaccinated with nonmarker vaccines by previous owners, meaning accreditation could not be achieved while these animals remain. Instead, gaining accreditation for Neospora is the next goal for the herd. David and Annabel have also set up a farm shop earlier this year, to sell their own beef and lamb as well as pork from a small number of pigs reared especially for the shop.

Tackling bovine TB Having worked as a farm animal vet in the south of England since 1990, I have seen many changes in the TB testing requirements for cattle within our practice area. From only adult animals being tested every four years to all animals every six months (with pre-movement testing required before an animal is sold if it has not undergone a routine test within the previous 60 days); and from the identification of an inconclusive reactor being a noteworthy event, to the frequent identification of infected animals. I have therefore taken great interest in the government’s plans to eradicate bTB and in the debate about whether culling badgers can have any meaningful role in achieving this aim.

for ANIMAL BREEDING A practical, independent and comprehensive online course

Irrespective to the answer to this debate it seems to me that the placing of bTB under statutory control has moved attention away from the fact that this disease is just another infectious disease of cattle (and other species), albeit with its own particular management and diagnostic challenges. As such, management of the current epidemic should be focused, as it would be in the control and eradication of any infectious disease of cattle, on certain key epidemiological areas including identifying and managing reservoirs of infection and addressing routes of disease transmission. The current government test and cull programme is aimed at identifying and removing reservoirs of disease in cattle. This is clearly an important part of the control of this disease but one that currently is in use largely in isolation and is failing to achieve the desired outcome. While increasing testing frequency or even using enhanced testing strategies or technologies may improve the efficiency of this part of the programme, it is not adding any material change to the overall strategy and so is unlikely to exert any significant change to the outcome over current policy. If we are to achieve success in the control and eventual eradication of this disease, more attention needs to be given to breaking pathways of transmission, whether cow-to-cow or wildlife-to-cow transmission. Controlling cow-to-cow transmission within a herd requires managing our herds to optimise immunity and effectively isolating high-risk animals. Although vaccination may be considered the holy grail of disease prevention, it remains at least 10 years away, and the limitations of current mycobacterial vaccines need to be remembered alongside other factors that might affect individual and herd-level immunity, including nutritional status and endemic immunosuppressive disease status. Controlling cow-to-cow transmission between herds requires good boundary biosecurity and appropriate risk assessment and quarantine procedures, including ongoing testing of purchased animals. Controlling wildlife-to-cow transmission requires a different approach to biosecurity to minimise contact between herds and potentially infected wildlife. In particular, the management of cattle feed stores on many farms could easily be improved with minimal effort, and careful grazing management might help keep cattle and other bTB-susceptible wildlife apart.

This is exactly the approach to TB control espoused in the CHeCS TB risk level scheme and is an approach that has been successful over many years in controlling and, in some cases, eradicating other non-statutory infectious diseases of cattle. This has now been acknowledged by government which is proposing not to increase the testing frequency for herds that engage with a CHeCS TB scheme in the high-risk area and has already been enacted in the edge area. Given the reasoned probability of success of such an approach, the benefits of improved herd health management with respect to numerous other infectious diseases, and a reduced requirement for whole herd TB testing, it would seem illogical not to take full advantage of this offer of an alternative and enhanced strategy for the control and eradication of bTB presents.

SIMMENTAL REVIEW 2019

Herd Level Diagnosis of Salmonella Dublin Salmonella Dublin is a bacterial infection that has a significant impact on productivity and welfare in infected cattle herds. It can spread to humans and has a higher mortality in humans than other strains of Salmonella. The clinical presentation can be very variable, and abortions, diarrhoea, pneumonia, milk drop and ill-thrift are common clinical signs. and aid in its eradication. Testing in dairy herds can be carried out by bulk tank testing. Eradication schemes for Salmonella Dublin are in progress in Denmark and the Netherlands. In the Danish eradication scheme status is assigned on the basis of four bulk tank antibody results, taken at three month intervals. Serology can also be carried out on blood samples, allowing beef herds to diagnose and monitor the condition.

It is a frequent diagnosis, with more than 1200 diagnoses made by APHA and SRUC diagnostic laboratories in the last five years. It occurs more commonly in dairy herds, with 85% of the cases diagnosed by SRUC Veterinary Services originating from dairy cattle. Analysis from other European countries suggests that costs in the first year of an outbreak can be as much as €52,000, with ongoing annual losses of €34,000. Losses result from a number of factors, including abortions, calf losses and a reduction in milk yield.

Eradication schemes in other European countries have made good progress, and on average it takes just two years for a herd to eradicate Salmonella Dublin.

The initial costs of an outbreak, and the success of an eradication program, depend on hygiene and management measures. A risk assessment document exists to help manage the critical husbandry factors that should be altered to reduce spread of Salmonella Dublin

Farewell Dear Friends to

David Thomlinson 10/02/1946 - 08/06/2019 In June 2019, as a consequence of a tragic accident on his farm, David Thomlinson sadly died. David will be remembered for his outstanding dedication to the livestock auctioneering world, within H&H, throughout the UK and across the world. David was born and brought up in Cumbria and after leaving Carlisle Grammar School in 1962, he began working for livestock auctioneers Harrison & Hetherington as an office boy based in Botchergate, Carlisle. During his early career he took and passed his Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyor exams, then moved across into auctioneering and rose through the ranks to Managing Director. David’s career with Harrison & Hetherington spanned over 57 years, during which time he made a huge contribution to the success which H&H is today. Although David could have retired, he still maintained a key role within the company through his love of the livestock rings as an auctioneer, mentor and assisting the land agency with property sales. Although many successes and highlights

during his work as an auctioneer, one of his first proud moments was the sale of a Texel Shearling Ram, Loosebeare Imp, in 2003 which sold for 120,000gns. Another was the sale of the prize winning Limousin bull, Haltcliffe Vermount, who sold for a then world Limousin record price of 100,000gns in 2010. David started the bidding for this exceptional animal at 10,000gns before seeing the price rise to make this highest priced breed bull ever sold at that time. Throughout his career David maintained his passion for farming, livestock, and rural issues. Along with his wife Sheila, he farmed their 200-acre farm, Park View at Scaleby, Carlisle from where they started their pedigree herd of Limousin cattle in 1978. David has made a hugely important contribution to the British Limousin Cattle Society, serving as a Council Member for a number of years, and concluding with a two-year Presidency in September 2018. Outside of work and commitments to his farm and livestock, David has been Chairman of the Cumberland Show,


recognition for the vital role he has played in the market system and in recognition as an inspirational model; David was praised as a deserving winner who has influenced the lives of others, supported communities, pushed for change and contributed to the positive promotion of the agricultural industry as a whole. There are two things which David said he would pass onto the next generation, to always be honest and to always remember the little man, David has certainly passed this on to our teams here. David will be a great miss to his family and all the H&H team, but his hard work over the years will live on through the next generation for many years to come.

Centre West Club Chairman’s Report by Mark Sallis

T

he year commenced with our AGM, held at Stratford cattle market in March.

Centre West Herd Competion Results 2019 LARGE HERD

REGIONAL CLUB REPORTS

The AGM saw the following appointments for 2019 Chairman – Mark Sallis Vice-chairman – David Savins Treasurer – John Fellows Secretary – Clare Price

Mr Rob Hewlett judged our annual Herd Competion in September and we thank him for generously donating his time.

Bowley – C.M Mercer

MEDIUM HERD Little Orchard – Mark Sallis

Lopemede Idaho

SMALL HERD Chapman – David Bush

BEST SUCKLING CALF BORN IN 2019 Wroxall Kenny Evans – CH Evans & Son

BEST WEANED BULL UP TO 2 YEARS OLD Winford Isambard – LJ & AJ Curry

BEST GROUP OF IN CALF HEIFERS Bowley – C.M Mercer

BEST GROUP OF MAIDEN HEIFERS Wroxall – CH Evans & Son

JUDGES DISCRETIONARY AWARD The Bowley herd for a field of cows all suckling twins, who were apparently doing so; well they could all have been single calves. (All cows have since also been confirmed back in calf).

The spring sale at Worcester in May saw John Rixon’s Lopemede herd achieve the top price of the day, with Lopemede Idaho selling for 8400 gns. The inaugural autumn sale then took place in late September with females selling well considering the pressures on the beef industry. October saw the club visit the JCB farm and factory in Staffordshire, the farm producing everything from beef, lamb, poultry and venison all organically, for the Daylesford organic business. A truly impressive set-up, they even have their own onsite abattoir! I think everybody who attended would thoroughly recommend the lunch, it was superb.

The year concluded with our annual Christmas meal this time held at The Riverside, in Stratford upon Avon, which was followed by the presentation of the herd competion prizes, and a talk by Mr John Thorley OBE. John is currently chairman of the Lord Plumb Foundation and gave a very enjoyable insight into his life. Finally, may I thank Clare for all her hard work this last year. Wroxall Glinko-Zilla (P)

W

e began 2019 with our annual dinner in January at The Plume of Feathers, Mitchell where members were joined by our 2018 Commercial Day hosts Phil and Lesley Martyn Uglow. The game of Irish Bingo was won by John Olds and caused more hilarity then usual due to the use of a digital selection of numbers and Daniel Olds acting as caller. February saw the Bosahan Herd acquiring two bulls at Stirling and a Brandane heifer joining the Kurlycoat herd. Kinclaven Infusion P – Linde General x Strathisla Bubble Geraldine (Omorga Samson)

Knockreagh Immanuel – Kilbride Farm Warren x Omorga Donna (Sterling Herkules)

During the month we also hosted the annual duel between the Cornwall Simmental and Truro South Devon clubs. This year we decided to run a beetle drive, organised by our president Charlie Harris, with a pin the tail on the bull adding to the excitement. With the South Devons winning, we anticipate the returning tussle in 2020. March featured a member’s social night at country skittles Townsend., with a meal followed by a game of nine pins on the cards with a gender battle of men v ladies. The ladies won with Penny Lally clinching the victory by being the only individual to scatter all the skittles with a single bowl.

During April members gathered to enjoy a new event the “Turnout Lunch” celebrating cattle out at grass and longer days. A carvery meal at the Fox and Hounds, Comford was top class. Members were pleased to welcome Jenny Harris our president’s wife after a nasty fall while gardening which involved a transfer to the house via wheelbarrow by Charlie despite broken limbs!!! In May Cornwall Club members supported the Worcester Society sale and club members Chegwidden (Reserve Male Champion with Chegwidden Jericho) and Bosahan venturing forth. The best spring sale outside Scotland experienced very good trade with bulls meeting an 85% clearance and 16 bulls selling to average £4010. Females also attracted attention with the dispersal of Lopemede and Ravensdale herds. Killiworgie acquired an Ashland Brandy daughter Weeton Erica’s Indigo while two young Lopemede Chegwidden Jericho Chegwidden Fergal Gallant x heifers were added to the new Chegwidden Paloma’s Flavia Helston based Hawkhill herd.

REGIONAL CLUB REPORTS

During the first week of June attention is centred on our County Show at Wadebridge. This year David Barker (Heywood) took on the task of judging the eight classes, respective specials and championships fulfilling his ambition to adjudicate the Simmental section at all the English County shows. Although stock numbers were down, with fewer exhibitors, the judge had a selection of good quality cattle meriting rosettes and prizes. Many thanks to exhibitors working hard to present cattle on show day, interbreed day in atrocious conditions including the new team of five competition and finally being caught in the rain again on Saturday during breed promotion. Local breeders with entries forward included Killiworgie, Pennytinney Treverbyn and Bosahan. Killiworgie took the Female and Overall Championship with Killiworgie Chrissie’s Izzie a Skerrington Desperado daughter with the yearling heifer Bosahan Jessica Star standing in reserve. The Male Championship went to Treverbyn’s Skylark Geronimo with Bosahan’s Kinclaven Infusion (P) filling the reserve spot. The Junior Championship went to Killiworgie Jack The Lad a January 2018 son of Killiworgie Emperor. Other class winners were Bosahan Jade Magic Baby young heifer and Intermediate young handlers with Charlie Carey, Treverbyn Jackson young bull, Killiworgie Buttercup’s Hannah in-calf heifer and Megan Wellington’s senior cow Chegwidden Daisy’s Gypsy who also won the best calf special prize with Pennytinney Jigsaw Puzzle.

REGIONAL CLUB REPORTS Nagle Bullbank and Focus Farm Vets and non-showing members. With all effort and enthusiasm for our county show an initial visit from the Breed Secretary Neil Shand on the first day resulted in Royal Cornwall making a big impression. Our Chief Executive felt that the size of show, breed quality and pitch position of marquee were all major contributors to raising the profile of the Simmental breed. A special mention must go to Roger Pascoe for receiving a lifetime achievement in the livestock section for showing at Royal Cornwall for 60 years in all breeds of cattle, several horse sections and acting as a night steward for 10yrs.

JULY

The line-up for the Junior Championship headed by Killiworgie Jack The Lad

The end of June saw members and friends travel to the Clyst herd of Simmentals at Exeter a budding young herd of cattle owned and generously shown by Steve Hammet and family. Farming two hundred acres of National Trust land a short distance from Exeter airport forty suckler cows are run alongside a flock of three hundred breeding ewes -Suffolk Mules. We saw thirty five acres of thriving maize as well as fields down to grass which are strip grazed. The herd are a mixture of commercial and pedigree dams with around twenty five pedigrees registered with the Clyst prefix. Steve is aiming to increase the number of pedigree females using the embryo transfer and sexed semen routes and has been successful with Ballinalare Galaxy and Popes Grandslam through Cogent. Alongside the stock bull Sway Angus other A.I. sires used include Coose Gambler and Woodhall Ferrari. His herd presently features maternal blood lines from Killiworgie, Deerhurst and Ravensdale secured at Society sales. All the bull calves are finished as bull beef. Members received a very warm welcome and enjoyed a visit in glorious sunshine.

Stithians Show judged by John May (Priorton): History was made at the 2019 Stithians Show, Cornwall’s biggest one day show, when Steve and Gill Gummow’s January 2018 bull won the Beef Interbreed Championship. The first British Simmental to do so. Killiworgie Jack The Lad by Killiworgie Emperor stood Champion Simmental before doing so well before the panel of both beef and dairy judges. Megan Wellington’s July 2015 cow Chegwidden Daisy’s Gypsy by Clonagh Tiger Gallant with her November 18 born heifer calf Pennytinney Jigsaw at foot took the breed reserve spot. Simmentals also made their mark in the Interbreed team of three taking the Archie Opie Cup with Ant Hart’s April born bull Treverbyn Jackson by Skylark Geronimo and Jim and Jean Buckland’s winning pair of yearling heifers by Sperrin View Director Wellatree Jemima and Jewell.

Megan Wellington receiving the Most Points Trophy at One Day Shows

Over forty commercial and pedigree breeders travelled from Somerset, Devon and throughout Cornwall to attend the eighth Cornwall Simmental Open Day on Sunday 28th July. In glorious sunshine we were treated to a tour of Castle Farm, Castle-an-Dinas, St Columb Major at the kind invitation of the Hooper Family. After welcoming visitors with coffee and cake Cornwall Simmental Club Chairman, Barrie Wynter presented a cheque to Kieran Varker (Vice Chairman) and Natalie Brown (Social Media and Communications Officer) representing Threemilestone YFC. The £100.00 donation goes to the club’s 2019 Fundraising for Our Future Campaign. Threemilestone and District Young Farmers have the opportunity to purchase the plot of land that the club hall sits on, including the surrounding car park area for £52,000. In six months they are half way to their target. Shown around by David, Steph and Peter we viewed over one hundred and thirty suckler cows including pedigree Blondes and Simmentals as well as crossbred dams. Grazing two hundred and twenty acres of permanent pasture reclaimed from downs the family’s hard work has resulted in plentiful grass despite the hot, dry conditions experienced during spring and early summer. The farm rises to eight hundred and fifty feet (two hundred and sixty metres) above sea level. The surrounding views were marvellous as David remarked ‘one of the best offices in the world’. Decisions throughout the move from a dairy business to a suckler beef enterprise have been based on costings and currently the herd is run to offer top class suckled calves at Truro Livestock Market from the end of August onwards with only herd replacements being retained. This allows dams to recover and gain condition before the majority calve indoors during the winter months. With all members of team Hooper also working part time off the holding, this system aids management and reduces winter costs while maximising profits. The move to increase numbers of Simmentals over the last five years has been driven by temperament, handling ease and the dams’ ability to grow shapely calves with good confirmation that have been proved to be very easy to sell. Following welcome refreshments Cornwall Quality Livestock Producers representatives, Peter Chapman Chairman and procurement and marketing officer Shelley Lockett, gave a presentation on their independent livestock marketing co-operative owned by its farming members. As a group of farmers, they benefit from marketing their stock together the organisation has roots going back to 1975 when a group of enterprising Cornish lamb producers collaborated to market their early season lambs outside the county to achieve higher returns. For over thirty years CQLP have been selling livestock on behalf of members located throughout the South West to deadweight outlets across the UK. Livestock farmers work together to retain strength and independence in the marketplace, encourage best practice and improve the profitability of their businesses as well as promoting

REGIONAL CLUB REPORTS

July and August - Over the five one day summer shows the club runs a competition where members are awarded points for exhibiting, gaining places and featuring in the inter-breed results.

This year the Cornwall Club award was won by Megan Wellington Pennytinney herd with 31 points. Awards included Reserve Simmental Champion at Stithians, Reserve Interbreed Champion at Liskeard and Other Beef Breeds Champion at Launceston.

Judge’s Comments

BACKWAY COMMERCIAL

Some excellent cross cows. Good calves reared on milk and grass no creep. Group of lovely pure bred heifers should lead the way to improving the herd together with investments in good pedigree Simmental stock bulls. Interesting to see how livestock are run alongside a thriving vegetable business. Cows are wintered outside.

KILLIWORGEY LARGE PEDIGREE

Steve and Gill favour proper cows with great heads. Their females were in lovely condition. Some great calves on the ground.

HOOPER COMMERCIAL TREGETHNER SMALL PEDIGREE

Good cross cattle with some smart calves on the ground. Very good deep older cows. Pleased to see the transition from Blondes to Simmentals. Wonderful views from the top of the farm. Steph has a small pedigree herd running alongside the commercial enterprise moving in the right direction.

PENNYTINNEY SMALL PEDIGREE

Megan is a hard working young breeder who is running a small pedigree Simmental herd alongside her father’s dairy business. Secured Crackley Cadette bloodlines that should prove a great foundation.

We travelled then on to the Coose herd Meeting John Tuohy and his son at the farm Our jaws dropped with a fair bit of envy At the sight of his building, No stone Barn!

We saw some very smart females and young bulls That many would like to take home We were joined by some other breeders From farms far and wide they had come The herd is a herd ‘going places’ With a young man incredibly keen If the cattle are as good as his building They’ll be the best that anyone’s seen! The Tuohy family laid on a grand BBQ For us and the folk from elsewhere A wonderful feast with conversation Discussing the problems all beef breeders share All the laughter and friendship and chatter Made our short visit to Ireland such fun Thank you so much, we hope you’ll visit Cornwall Land of Cream teas and Pasties and Sun .....(and some very good Simmentals !!) Penny Lally August 2019

SOWENNA - LARGE PEDIGREE

Piers has exceptional deep bodied cows especially those sired by Snazzy. Best Barclay females I have seen. Extensive use of A.I. has led to an interesting mix of types which is a challenge to uniformity across the herd.

TREVERBYN SMALL PEDIGREE

Ant is an enthusiastic breeder with lovely sweet feminine females. The youngstock on the group will further improve the herd.

BOSAHAN - LARGE PEDIGREE

John and Bridget have a very consistent herd all round. Milky females with good bags due to the influence of Skerrington Armada. Weaned bull calves are fed on out of parlour feeders.

CHEGWIDDEN LARGE PEDIGREE

Viv is situated in the far west of Cornwall on a farm with contrasting grass keep to other areas visited. Policy of using A.I. sired home-reared bulls across the herd. Chegwidden Gismo was the best bull seen during the competition and his first calves are eagerly awaited.

BOLANKIN - SMALL PEDIGREE

Barrie’s depth of knowledge about the Simmental breed is impressive. It was lovely to see a group of good solid cows with old bloodlines

WHITE BOLANKIN/ COMMERCIAL

Edward runs an excellent commercial herd. Meeting such an unforgettable character ended my visits on a high note.

John and Bridget Olds Bosahan herd took the overall best herd and Steve and Gill Gummow Killiworgie runnersup. Ant Hart Treverbyn was presented with the small herds honours.

SIMMENTAL REVIEW 2019

a new autumn sale, with the optimistic hope of selling success and empty pens. After a very hard trade with only four bulls selling members returned home disappointed. However a better clearance of females in a depressed beef market resulted in the Cornwall based herds of Housey and Hawkhill investing in Little Orchard and Dinton bloodlines.

Mid month the reduction sale of Chegwidden females at Sedgemoor enjoyed a good trade with several pedigree breeders securing desirable established herd bloodlines. We wish Viv and Jeff improving health with an easier winter in prospect. Some members travelled to autumn Stirling bull sales and shared the excitement of seeing the Killiworgie herd make a considerable investment in a class winner and son of Ranfurly Confederate.

A busy year concluded with our annual general meeting in November. Charlie Harris, ‘Bargus’ herd took on the office of Club President in 2012 and has kindly officiated as photographer for the club at events and visits and ‘keeper and curator of the club hospitality tent and equipment. After seven years of amazing support for the club ably assisted by his wife Jenny, Charlie stepped down from the post and nominated Penny Lally ‘Chyanhal’ to take the lead. As a founder member Penny is looking forward to celebrating thirty years of the Cornwall club in 2020 the same year as The British Simmental Society heralds it’s golden fiftieth anniversary. The meeting was followed by a presentation by Alex Brown of AHDB on ‘Choosing Bulls For Better Returns’ using the EBV data collated from carcase traits at slaughter. Alex urged us all to encourage buyers of our bulls to record details of the sire with BCMS when registering birth information.

Finally, the Cornwall Club extends an invitation to visit us during 2020. Club events will be posted on our website www.cornwallsimmentalclub.co.uk With flights into Newquay airport from all parts of the British Isles it is possible to combine a short break with herd visits and club officers would be pleased to organise an itinerary for you.

We had our AGM slightly earlier than normal as our treasurer Dennis Mitchell has moved to Brazil for a short while. Simon Key stepped down as group chair and all thanked him for his hard work over the years, especially in the way he took the club forward and increased the numbers attending meetings. Simon expressed his thanks to Hayley Clarke for the support she had given him as secretary. Simon remains on council so will remain a very important member of the club. I had the honour of being voted in as chair a daunting prospect and I hope I can continue to take the club forward. We had a very informative meeting when Neil Shand came down to discuss some interesting topics with all of our club members and we thank him again for that as it was very enlightening. Finally, Congratulations to James and Kelly Brice on the birth of their baby boy Oscar. We look forward to seeing him in the young handlers’ classes within the next few years.

nd just like that another year has gone! We started the year as usual with our Annual Quiz well supported and great fun. The winners were the Ex-Presidents team. A huge thanks to Chris and Kath Martindale for keeping us all on our toes. In April we were kindly invited to Storersmith Simmentals for junior stockjudging practice. This event was well supported again so thank you to everybody who turned out on what was a very wet day. The winner was Josh Evans, well done to all competitors.

to visit the JCB factory at Uttoxeter. We didn’t all make it as it was a mid-week date but some members did and had a very enjoyable day. The summer shows were well represented as always. Well done to all club members who have had success at shows and sales. In September we spent a glorious day visiting David and Lesley Sapseds lovely Heathbrow herd. The cattle looked fantastic and the weather could not have been better if we had ordered it! Thank you so much to David and Lesley for your wonderful hospitality we all had a fantastic day.

We then moved on to the English Winter Fair our showcase for the year. This year we had the opportunity to move our stand to the ring side, this proved to be a great success and we had two very busy days promoting the breed. The calf show was very well represented with 25 calves forward for our judge Richard McInnes. Thank you to all who helped on the stand especially Mandy who organises it so well, aided by Kath and of course our lady bakers who do us proud each year. It really was encouraging to have so many calves forward and we hope to build on this for next year.

I have had a great two years as Chairman and would like to thank our anchor Mandy Green for all her help and support throughout my time. The year ended with our newly resurrected club dinner. We had a great night, thank you to everybody for supporting it, a good time was had by all with great food and great company. Thankyou to all the sponsors it is hugely appreciated and again something to build on in the future. Big thank you to our guest speaker Mr Frank Wrathall who made the journey with his wife Trudi from Lancashire to entertain us and that he certainly did!

I would also like to thank Mandy once more for her tireless work and great enthusiasm for our breed and the running of our club. Thanks also go to our Treasurer Bill Turrell who is unfortunately incapacitated at the moment and we all send our best wishes to him for a speedy recovery. Thank you all for the time you dedicate to the smooth running of the club. Finally, with the debacle that is Brexit still hanging over us we are living in uncertain times but our breed continues to be in a strong position to move forward. I would like to wish all members and Simmental breeders a happy, healthy and successful 2020.

T

he Club’s year started with Stirling bull sales in February. Well Done to John, Val & Craig Hollingsworth for selling their bull ‘Midhope Ian’ for 5800gns into Gerald, Morag and Douglas Smiths’ Drumsleed Herd. Newark show & sale followed on in March. The Hollingsworth team were out in force when their appropriately named heifer ‘Midhope I Am The Best’ was awarded the Overall Champion and later sold for the day’s top price of 4300gns. Andrew & Yvonne Leedham took the Reserve Champion female spot with their heifer. Midhope Impressive

Midhope I Am The Best

Lincoln show in June saw the club’s new young member Katie Boyes being awarded 1st place in the senior young handler class and reserve overall. Katie also gained a 3rd with her heifer ‘Sledmere Jade’, whilst Club member Steve Stubbings should be congratulated when his heifer ‘Sledmere Jewel’ collected a 2nd in the same class; Last but not least ‘Midhope Heavenly light’ was awarded the female & reserve overall champion whilst her maternal half-sister ‘Midhope I- Light’ collected a 1st and the reserve female champion position.

Ian & Margaret Steele made the long journey to Carlisle in April to be rewarded with the Reserve Overall championship with their heifer ‘Blakewell Dawn’s Isobel’.

Many congratulations and a fantastic result all round for the North East Club. July brought the Yorkshire Show, there was a very good show of cattle and plenty of spectators around the ring, which is always great to see. The show seems to go from strength to strength and draws in huge crowds over the three days. Congratulations to David & Lesley Sapsed who were awarded the overall championship on show day with their bull ‘Heathbrow Important 17’ and then went on the claim the prestigious interbreed beef championship the following day.

Driffield show followed a week after the Yorkshire. ‘Midhope Heavenly Light’ followed in her mothers’ footsteps by winning the overall and interbreed title whilst ‘Sledmere Jewel’ achieved a first place and the reserve champion spot. Unfortunately, due to ill health Brian Lundy dispersed his well-known ‘Caistor herd’ at Selby market in late July. Brian has been a stalwart of the breed for many years and his depth of knowledge is extraordinary. The cattle on the day looked superb and I am sure they will go on to breed very well for their new owners. The young members trip took place in late August. Congratulations to Katie Boyes who was awarded 2nd place in the junior team event when paired with Lizzie Harding.

Grangewood Jumbo

Many congratulations to all Club members who have exhibited cattle at shows and sales this year. Neil Shand attended a club meeting in late October to talk to members about the vision for the breed in the future and the promotional aspects the Society are doing to lift the profile of the breed. Members raised several points of concern and a good discussion ensued. Many thanks to Neil for making the long trip up North. Carlisle Agri Expo calf show was held on the 1st November. Club members Andrew & Yvonne Leedham collected a 1st and reserve junior champion with their heifer ‘Grangewood Polly’s Karina’ and a 3rd with their young bull calf ‘Grangewood Kansas 19’ The day was topped off with Callum winning the young handlers. Well Done. Andrew, Yvonne & Callum Leedham with Grangewood Polly’s Karina.

The club had a visit in September to the home of the ‘Goskins herd’ by kind invitation of John, Elizabeth and David Greensit. The herd was the overall winner in last year’s herd competition. Members were treated to a lovely afternoon of walking around the impressive herd of young heifers, cows & calves and new stock bull. All the cattle behaved impeccably and we were all very grateful on our return to the house to be greeted with a delicious BBQ! The Hollingsworth team were out again at their local Penistone show in September, they took the Interbreed title with ‘Midhope Heavenly light’ and her superb December born heifer calf at foot. Always a great feeling to take the top accolade on home turf. Worcester sale came at the end of September. Topping the male trade was ‘Grangewood Jumbo 18’ from Andrew &

The Club’s Annual Dinner was held in early November at the same venue as last year, The Bridge, Walshford, Wetherby. Members enjoyed a lovely carvery meal and a very welcome sociable evening. 2019 has been very challenging due to low beef prices and growing anti-meat campaigns. I think we all have a role to play in promoting the benefits of beef production, both for its nutritional qualities and the important role it plays in helping to manage our unique countryside. Finally, July 2020 sees the 50th Anniversary of the first Simmental imports into the UK, and the foundation of the British Simmental Cattle Society. Hope it will be a very successful year for everyone concerned.

North West Simmental Club Report by Sarah Ford - Secretary

O

ur year started with the AGM held at the Auctioneer, Carlisle where the club officers were re-elected, with Alan Tallantire staying as Chairman, Sarah Ford as secretary and the committee the same. Mike Sanderson who is County NFU Advisor for Penrith very kindly came and talked to us about his life working alongside farmers with amusing tales to tell. It has been another interesting year in the life of farming. This year we have been bored by Brexit and the vegan hating farmers, although we did have a vegan come to look at our lambs to cheer herself up???!!! The weather has thrown up its usual hazards which if nothing else keeps us all learning! Unfortunately our annual farm walk didn’t take place so the highlight of the clubs year was the Agri Expo where the club helps run the Simmental hospitality and promotion stand. We supply the stand with some local cattle showing the versatility of the Simmental with club members making a lot of teas and coffees. The calf show was very well attended with excellent sponsors and good entries, my personal favourite of the day was seeing the children, of some of the “not so old” members, showing their parents how it should be done!

In July the club organised a tour of four herds in North East Scotland. As well as approximately 50 Scottish club members, we also welcomed members from the East Anglian, South East, and Northern Ireland clubs. The first herd we visited was Gary and Angela Christies Rockytop herd at Glass near Huntly, where we toured their pedigree and commercial herds before having a lovely lunch, kindly provided by Gary and Angela.

After lunch, we visited the Stronach family’s Islavale herd at Keith. After touring the herd, Meurig James gave a very useful classification demonstration using some of the Islavale cows. In the evening a BBQ was provided by our hosts and a Ceilidh followed.

O

ur AGM this year was held in March at Michael and Jackie Hind’s farm prior to them giving up farming and moving to a brand-new house. Unfortunately, some of us didn’t quite make it as we were parked on the M25 which I guess is the norm during the week, but this was a Sunday morning.

their game. After a tour round we were shown some cattle classification by an expert and then what a spread was laid on for us, BBQ, plenty of liquid refreshment and to top it off a few dance moves for good measure.

Stronach Heifers on Show

Photo call for the South East gang

Early July saw several of us meet at Southend airport for a trip to Scotland organised by Simon Key in conjunction with the Scottish club. We flew to Aberdeen where upon arrival we jumped into a minibus and headed up to the Premier Inn at Elgin.

Sunday saw us off to Michael Durno’s Auchorachan herd again some wonderful animals benefiting from plenty of grass. Here again we were wined and dined but on a tight schedule we had to board the coach for our second visit of the day to A & R Simmers Backmuir herd, they purchased Henry Widdicombe’s Starline herd and had also purchased the very successful show heifer Sterling FCUK Impuls ,what an amazing set up that was , unfortunately although yet again plenty of food and drink was available we had to be at the airport by mid-afternoon so only managed a whistle stop tour round some of the cattle. Thank you, Simon, for organising and the Scottish club for allowing us to join you. Auchorachan Hercules 16

Our first full day was Saturday where we initially visited Gary Christie’s Rockytop herd again similar to our trip to Southern Ireland last year no shortage of grass and we all know there is no substitute for grass where condition on cattle is concerned, we were wined and dined more than adequately, then loaded up again on the coach and off to the Stronach’s Islavale herd in Keith.

REGIONAL CLUB REPORTS

South West Club Report by Dawn Shapland - Secretary INTERBREED QUIZ

The South West Club started the year with a very creditable fourth place, in the Interbreed Quiz. Eleven teams took part, with just one point covering second, third and fourth positions, with a team of local vets from the Mount Veterinary Practice storming away into first place. David Barker did his usual wonderful job in organising the event and with his great friend, Jack Ellicott, running the raffle, over £230 was raised and has been donated to Musgrove Park Hospital’s, Beacon Centre.

The Club wishes to thank all our Worcester Sale sponsors for their support and generosity: Mole Valley Farmers Ltd, Crediton Milling, For Farmers, ABP Langport, Shearwell Data, Torch Farm Vets, Bosahan Simmentals, Skylark Simmentals and Paul Tucker Kepak/ St Merryn. Thanks also to Duncan Short of Towergate Farm Insurance, for their sponsorship of the Rosettes for both Worcester sale and the Herd Competition.

A.G.M.

Oake Manor Golf Club was the venue for the Club A.G.M and Dinner. Mr Nick Green, Farm Operations Manager for Alvis Bros and one of the Trustees of the Charity, FarmLink was our speaker for the evening. His speech was much appreciated and well received by all present. Jack Ellicott’s raffle raised £92 and auctioning of a bottle of Whisky a further £20. The generous donation of Skerrington Armada Straws, from John and Bridget Olds, resulted in a final bid of £150 in a silent auction. In the words of our Treasurer, David Edwards, “The A.G.M was a financial success as well as a very, very pleasant and sociable evening”.

Grangewood Jupiter – Male Champion

OAKHAM TREASURES

In late April we had a visit to Oakham Treasures, the largest privately owned collection of farming and retail memorabilia in the UK. The event was well supported by club members and friends, all of whom thoroughly enjoyed their day out.

WORCESTER SALE

With Clive Roads drawing tremendous interest from McCartney’s cliental, a packed ring ensured there was keen interest from both pedigree and commercial breeders. Stags auctioneer, Richard Turner did a first-rate job in assisting Clive with the sale. In the Show classes judge Rob Hewlett awarded Grangewood Jupiter (3,400 gns) Champion Male with Viv Hall’s Chegwidden Jerico (3,400 gns) filling the Reserve spot. Female and Overall Champion was Midhope Impressive. This appropriately named in-calf heifer from the Hollingsworth family, sold for 3,200 gns. Mr Rixon’s, Lopemede Idaho topped the trade at 8,400 gns. Second top price of 6,800 gns was for Richard Cummings’ Cwarre Idaho. Due to age restrictions, these two top priced animals were excluded from the show classes. The Olds family’s Bosahan Illiad was next best at 4,500 gns. Bosahan Infinity changed hands for 4,300 gns.

Midhope Impressive – Female & Overall Champion

DEVON COUNTY SHOW

Chosen by judge Chris Martingale, Rhys Grenham’s Boars Head Nelly 7th and Karina 8th, were the Overall and Female Champion and Reserve Female Champion respectively. Taking the male honours and Overall Reserve Champion was the Popes Barclay sired Skylark Infamous, bred and shown by Rachel Scott-Douglas, her parents Graham and Sarah and her brother Sam. Their Bosahan Galileo sired Skylark Jimbob, won his Junior bull class and the following day was awarded Interbreed Reserve Champion Male, by judge Clive Roads. Many thanks all that assisted with the club stand, welcomed guests and contributed to the refreshments.


Aled Davis had the task of judging at this year’s Royal Bath and West Show. He awarded the top honours, Male and Overall Champion, to the Tilbrook Earl sired Beanhill Highness, bred and exhibited by James and Belinda Kimber. Reserve Overall and Female Champion was Beanhill Ellie from the same stable. Sadly, there were only two exhibitors present, the Kimber family and Miss J Lewis. We can but hope that the breed will be better supported in 2020.

Boars Head Simmentals

Skylark Simmentals

On September 27th a Society Open Day took place at the home of David and Kath Edwards and their daughter Fran Ford. The event was well attended and proved to be a great showcase of the breed to both commercial and pedigree breeders alike. Ed Simmons from Tibbs and Simpson veterinary practice gave a talk on the pelvic measurement programme in place at Pool Farm. It was an interesting topic and I’m sure some that attended will now introduce it into their own herd management systems. Neil Shand spoke on Sustainable Beef Production and the present state of the beef industry. “Sustainability for the Farmer is about looking after the landscape and waterways, their animal’s welfare, being a good neighbour and a useful member of the community” An excellent summing up of something we should all make great efforts to achieve. Two trips were made by tractor and trailer to take anyone who wished to view the stock. The outstanding animals alone, the view of the surrounding countryside, was a treat in itself. Well done to the winners of the two competitions held on the day: Brooks Carey with Stock Judging and Steve Shapland with “Guess the Weight. Thank you to: Crediton Milling, for provided the drinks, British Simmental Society for providing the food. Roy Loud for judging the heifers, Adrian Curry for the use of his tractor, North Somerset Show for the loan of their trailer and to Jack Ellicott for arranging a raffle. Most important of all is to thank David, Kath and Fran for hosting such thoroughly enjoyable and successful event.

REGIONAL CLUB REPORTS

A terrific entry of eighteen herds entered this year’s herd competition. Owing to other commitments our judge was unable to attend the presentations evening at Oake Manor. A message from the Judge Rhys Grenham - “I would like to thank the South West club for asking me to judge the competition I thoroughly enjoyed it and apologies for taking a bit longer than anticipated to get it completed. It was very nice to get around the area and see members and their cattle, it’s always nice to see different set ups and breeding”. Unfortunately, the Judge wasn’t the only one unable to attend – a flat battery caused problems for our Chairman, Adrian Curry and his father Len. Treasurer, David Edwards had a prior engagement. On behalf of the Club I’m afraid it was down to me to present the trophies and rosettes to the winners. Particular thanks go to all that attended, I hope you enjoyed the evening and felt the long journey, worthwhile. Due to the dreadfully inclement weather during the Autumn, two events were cancelled. The first of these was to have been a visit to the Hawkey family’s Sowenna Herd, the second a visit to the Gummow’s, Killiworgie Herd. Hopefully we’ll be able to re-arrange these visits in 2020. Judging by the Herd Competition results, it will certainly be well worth the trip!

AWARDS EVENING

CORNWALL PEDIGREE CALF SHOW

As long-standing supporters of the Cornwall Pedigree Calf Show, gaining Breed Champion with Winford Jasmine, was a much-deserved success for Len and Adrian Curry. Sired by Denizes Exclusive, Jasmine is the first calf from Killiworgie Hope, purchased from the Gummow family at Worcester in 2017.

Winford Jasmine – Breed Champion

Finally, I would like to thank the club members for their support during the year and wish them all a healthy and successful 2020.

Welsh Club By Dafydd Jones - Chairman

T

hank you to all at The Welsh Simmental Club for yet another fantastic year as Chairman. 2019 has been a year that has flown by. We began this year with our Annual Dinner, held at the Cottage Inn, Llandeilo. Our AGM was held shortly afterwards where the following were elected: Chairman - Dafydd Jones Vice Chairman - Aled Davies Secretary - Anwen Jones Treasurer - Aled Davies Vice Treasurer - Aled Evans Young Members Representative - Callum Croft Flowing into February at the Stirling bull sales, Richard and Debbie Cumming enjoyed great success winning their class with Cwarre Iowa who later sold for 6,500gns.Â

Cwarre Iowa

Richard and Debbie continued their success at the Worcester Sale in May where they sold Cwarre Idaho for 6,800gns.Â

At Aberystwyth Show the Champion was awarded to Cwarre Jester from Richard and Debbie Cumming. Jester then went on to become Interbreed Male Champion. The highlight of our year as always is the Royal Welsh Show. Despite a low number of entries, the breed enjoyed a successful week. Judge Mr David Donnelly awarded Champion to Sacombe Dandelion Oma from the Borlase family, who also claimed the Reserve Champion with Sacombe Joker. Later that day, Sacombe Dandelion Oma was awarded Interbreed Champion. To celebrate the 100th Show, a one-off Champion of Champions competition was held. Dandelion Oma successfully beat the Dairy and Commercial competition to represent the Bovines and was awarded Reserve Champion of Champions.

Sacombe Dandelion Oma

Following on from the Royal Welsh Show was the Welsh National Show held at Pembrokeshire County Show, a tremendous show of Simmentals was judged by Mr John May. Champion was awarded to Cwarre Jester from Richard and Debbie Cumming, and Reserve to Crugmelyn Icing Sugar from Gethin and Enfys Lloyd.

Cwarre Idaho

Cothi Bridge Show represents the start of the showing season for our members, where the Francis family were Champion with Kennox Ike.

T

his year the Young Members trip headed off to Scotland. Once again, we had a good turnout of young members who were all keen to get stuck in and enjoy the next couple of days. Our first place to visit was Mr & Mrs Ward & Sons of West Mains Farm, Lanark – Westridge herd. Gareth Ward explained about their farm which is a family run business near the market town of Lanark; consisting of mixed beef, sheep and arable enterprises.

112

www.britishsimmental.co.uk

Trip 2019

Afterwards we took a tour of their cattle. The majority of their cattle are Simmental X, with some Aberdeen Angus and Shorthorn. They also have their pedigree herd, known as Westridge Simmentals, and you will often see them selling bulls at the Stirling bull sales. The majority of calves are born in May, June and July, with a smaller percentage left to calve in the Autumn.


SIMMENTAL REVIEW 2019

Following the farm tour. David Lowry gave a stock judging demonstration. These always prove a useful tool in guiding the young members which traits to look for when selecting cattle.

YOUNG MEMBERS

To end the day, the Ward family kindly provided us with a delicious BBQ. This was greatly received by all and was an excellent way to end the first day of the trip. Many thanks to the Ward family and to everyone involved in making the day so interesting and enjoyable. On the Saturday we headed off to Richard McCulloch’s Overhill House herd in Armadale. This was a fun packed day with lots to learn and amazing memories to be made. We started with Richard McCulloch giving a detailed talk about his business, how he operates and manages his cattle. After touring their cattle, Cammie Jackson and Gary Patterson gave an impressive cattle dressing demonstration which everyone thoroughly enjoyed, whilst gaining valuable knowledge; which I’m sure they will be able to utilise in the future. The young members then got to put in to practice what they had learnt the day before and the main stock judging event commenced. Congratulations to Molly Bradley from Northern Ireland for achieving the Overall Winner.

Richard and his team kindly provided us with a hog roast lunch, a delicious steak dinner, was later followed by a disco and bucking bronco. Our sincere thanks to Richard and all his team for providing us with such an amazing day; we were well and truly spoilt. Everyone left extremely full but delighted to have had such a great couple of days; learning, laughing, socialising and making lifelong friends along the way.

t was a great honour and privilege to judge the 151st Balmoral Show. I would like to thank the committee of the Royal Ulster Agricultural Society for inviting me. The weather was excellent, and this was a bonus for the exhibitors and spectators alike. Due to the show being held early in the season and many part-time breeders the number of cattle forward was relatively small, but credit to the exhibitors, the quality was of a high standard. With just two exhibits in the cow class, first place went to Ballinalare Farm Chanel followed by Guhard Dorothy. These were two useful cows.

www.britishsimmental.co.uk

Show

As there was a single entry in the senior heifer class first place went to Ballinalare Farm Ivory. In the intermediate heifer class, pole position was held by Ranfurly Weikel 23rd followed by Breaghey Leading Lady and claiming the third ticket was Lisglass Isla. In the Junior Heifer class Cleenagh Jessica claimed first place followed closely in second place by Roscultan Jemina. These were two super heifers which should mature into excellent cows. In third position was another decent heifer namely Bannhill Farm Jinx. With no entries in the Senior bull class the Junior Male section was led by Ranfurly Jameson J2 18, an outstanding young bull

ROYAL SHOW REPORTS with tremendous power and scale. In second place was Bridgewater Farm Jed, this was another smart young bull with good potential followed by Bridgewater Farm Jenson from the same farm. Finally, in fourth place was Lisglass Jasper. The bulls in this class were all a credit to their breeders. My Male and Overall Champion was undisputedly Ranfurly Jameson J2 18 and claimed reserve spot in the Interbreed Beef Recorder class. Reserve Male and Reserve Overall went to the Bridgewater herd with Bridgewater Farm Jed. Female Champion was Ranfurly Wiekel 23rd I11 with Cleenagh Jessica in reserve position.

ENGLISH Show NATIONAL I JUDGE: ANNE MACPHERSON

t was an honour to be asked to judge the 2019 English National Show at The Royal Norfolk Show. Thank you to the Society and Show for a very well organised day and thank you to the exhibitors for all their time and effort in turning out such a super show of Simmies. In the Junior Heifer class Sacombe Hawaii’s Jessica caught my eye as soon as she came in. Very sweet, well fleshed and a very good mover, just my kind of heifer. This heifer went on to be Junior and Reserve Female Champion. Second place went to

Heathbrow’s much younger Girlies Jewel, a very correct, well fleshed heifer for her age, third was Ashland Lucy Jezebel, another quality heifer. The second class again had a clear winner in Heathbrow Jasmine, a powerful heifer, but still very feminine. There wasn’t a lot between second and third, Brandane Jane just having slightly more flesh than Perrywood Jasmine. The third heifer class was easily won by Cade Irresistible, a similar style of heifer to the winner of the previous class, fleshy but

still feminine. Storersmith Isla in second was a nice long heifer, just unlucky to have the Cade heifer overpower her. Popes Princess Immie gave me another clear winner in the fourth class, a fleshy heifer who paraded very well. The next two heifers were a similar type, but Beeches Isabella had more width through the front end compared to Penton Indigo. Two very powerful heifers led class 5. Popes Nellys Ilia taking first, being the more feminine and better balanced of the two. Heathbrow Girlies Ivy stood second. The Jukes’ Swallowhill Isabelle stood third, a lovely long female, just not carrying as much flesh as the first two. We just had two entries in the Junior cow class, both working hard with nice calves at foot. Theberton Honey was the deeper bodied of the two with a bit more shoulder than her herd mate Hollie. The Intermediate cow class was led by Kennox Divas Gena, being the widest and biggest of the three. Sway Gorgeous Girl stood second, another big cow, but just not having the width through the front end of the first cow. Fircovert Glamour Bluebell came in third, just missing the scale of the other two. In the Senior cow class, I found my Champion. I immediately fell for Sacombe Dandelion Oma when she floated into the ring saying, “Look at me!”. She wasn’t the biggest cow in the class, but to me she was everything a Simmie cow should be. Very

feminine, well balanced, good length and width, especially through the backend, good locomotion, loads of milk, and a super young bull calf at foot. Second place went to Theberton Emma 2nd, another well balanced, breedy cow. The first class of males was won by Sacombe Joker, maybe a bit raw on the day, but the most correct and well put together young bull in the class. Second was the heavier, but less balanced Popes Jethro, and third went to the nice shaped Scotland Hill Jackaroo. The second bull class found me my Junior Male Champion in Scotland Hill Juggernaut, a growthy, well fleshed young bull. Second and third were two similar bulls, Storersmith Jumanji and Penton Jolly, unfortunately Jolly was lame, so took third. My Male and Reserve Overall Champion came from the next class, again a clear winner, Heathbrow Important towered above the other two entries in the class. His length, cleanness and power are what we have been looking for in a stockbull, and I’m pleased to say that he has since come home to Blackford. Second place went to the bouncy, but well-made Fircovert Isaac with Shannock Ice-T being third. The four senior bulls were split into two types, my preference was for the smoother fleshed more traditional Drumsleed Explosion in first and Sway Hector in second. I was very proud to see the Simmental team of five going on to win the prestigious Heygates Interbreed Team of Five competition, and Heathbrow Important taking the Male and then Supreme Interbreed Champion later in the show. Thank you again to everyone involved for their hospitality and hard work at the show.

irstly I would like to thank RHASS for their kind invitation to judge the 2019 Simmental classes at the Royal Highland Show. It was a great honour and privilege and definitely one off the bucket list. It was a cool, dry and blustery day, so good conditions for showing cattle. As I waited in the ring for the first class I can honestly say I had butterflies in my stomach, excited with anticipation for what the morning ahead had in store for me! There were 12 heifers in the first class which all looked stunning entering the ring. I placed the youngest heifer 1st from Michael Barlow, Ashland Lucy Jezebel, a long heifer with great style. 2nd was Pitmudie Jamaica who was of a similar type to the 1st place heifer. 3rd went to

www.britishsimmental.co.uk

Sacombe Hawaii Jessica, a different style of heifer carrying more flesh. Cairnveiw Rea took 4th, another good heifer with a great top. The second class kept up the standard and my first pick was Frank Gwynne’s Brandane J-Lo, a very correct heifer with length, power and great locomotion. Standing next to her in 2nd was Corskie Joanna, another good female however she was carrying more condition and not the same power as my 1st place. 3rd was Garmouth Glory’s Jessica from Laura Beattie, 4th came from Richard McCulloch with Overhill House Joon and Perrywood Jasmine was 5th. The next class of females, born between July and the end of December

ROYAL SHOW REPORTS

2017 presented me with an easy first, Corskie Illusion, who I thought at this stage would probably go further on the day. In 2nd was a really fleshy heifer from Heather Duff, Pitmudie Irish Mist, followed closely in 3rd place by Overhill House Ice Maiden. 4th went to a very well presented Newbiemains Isla. The fourth class of heifers was very well supported with 9 animals forward. There was an obvious first in this class, Sterling’s FCUK Implus, from Reece and Andrew Simmers. A very eye catching animal, with an abundance of breed character, very fleshy but moving well round the ring. 2nd was Garmouth Dumandy Isabella, 3rd Pitmudie Florin 2nd, 4th Corskie Inita and Jim and Patricia Goldie collected the 5th and 6th rosettes. I found the next class extremely hard to judge, comparing in calf heifers and heifers with a calf at foot is always a difficult task I find. After some serious deliberation I placed 1st a very sweet and milky heifer from Michael Durno in the form of Auchorachan Letta H1 . She was working very hard and making a grand job of her heifer calf. 2nd and 3rd went to the Green family from Corskie with Corskie Herb and Corskie Harp . Harry Houldey took 4th with Clonagh Honey Cream. There was only one entry in the next class, Cairnview Tilly 4th, she walked round the ring, moving very well and with a great calf at foot. The oldest cow class, born before 2013 only had one animal forward also, Corskie Disco. She immediately owned the ring with her twin calves. At 7 years old her locomotion was excellent moving gracefully with impressive style and breed character. I was looking forward to how she would stand up later in the day and thinking she was going to be hard to beat. The junior female championship was next on the list to judge and I was very pleased with my 1st prize junior heifers as they returned to the ring. The Junior Female Championship went to Corskie Illusion, she had tremendous length, width and locomotion, a great cow in the making. Reserve went to Newbiemains I’m a Gem. The Overall Female Championship was next and the powerful, elegant Corskie Disco was an easy winner with Sterling’s FCUK Implus from the Simmers boys an obvious reserve. Moving onto the first of the male classes, where I feel more at home judging,

ROYAL SHOW REPORTS there were 7 bulls forward. The red ticket in this class went to Lynfield Joseph, a long well grown bull who moved well. 2nd went to the Smith family from Drumsleed in the form of Drumsleed Jura and 3rd to Nick and Nadia Gwynne with Chestermann Jimmy. The bull class aged between January and March 2018 had a large entry of 9. Greencap Jaeger was my pick, a long dark red bull showing great style and potential. 2nd went to a real muscle machine, Dargill JJ from D C McLaren & Partners followed by Chestermann Jupiter in 3rd and a close 4th for Drumsleed Jaeger. The senior bull class had two entries, both Denizes Hamish and Drumsleed Hivy showed great breed character however it was Hivy that took the red rosette on the day as he carried himself well, moved effortlessly around the ring with an outstanding presence. My Junior Male Champion went to Greencap Jaeger from Colin Inglis. A very eye catching bull in the ring and I remember thinking he should go on to become a future pedigree stock bull. Jaeger also went on to become the Overall Junior Champion, with the reserve going to Corskie Illusion. Both great examples of the Simmental breed, Illusion a modern and well-rounded heifer however Jaeger just had more style and show character on the day. Drumsleed Hivy returned to the ring to compete against Greencap Jaeger for the Overall Male Championship. I really liked Colin’s young bull but the sheer power of Hivy made him my worthy Champion. I was very happy as my male and female champions entered the ring for the final time. Two tremendous animals which had left me with a very hard decision to make. But the gracefulness of Corskie Disco had won me over, she was a stunning cow and a true matriarch of the breed and I was delighted to award her and the Green family the RHS 2019 Championship. Sterling’s FCUK Impuls took the reserve Champion, a heifer who I’m sure will have plenty of success at shows in the future! As I reflect on my judging, I’d like to take the opportunity to say how very proud I am to be part of the Simmental breed. I was very impressed by the presentation and quality of the animals paraded in front of me and I would like to congratulate every exhibitor for taking part and showcasing the breed for all to see.

W JUDGE: DAVID DONNELLY

hen asked to judge your own breed at a show it is and will always remain an honour and something you never forget. When that request is to Judge a ROYAL SHOW your hopes and expectations move to another level. Although honoured and grateful to be asked to Judge the ROYAL WELSH SHOW my hopes of having large numbers of quality cattle paraded with classes being contested by 6 or more in each class, all looking to receive the red card never materialized with only 2 members from Wales (2 animals), 1 member from Scotland (1 animal), 1 member from

England (5 animals) attending bringing an overall total of 8 animals to contest all of the classes. As a society I think the time has arrived when we along with others provide money to members to help cover entry costs/ time, especially if we want to be seen promoting our breed at certain large shows to try and halt this downward trend of animals forward. The Highland/English National clearly don’t need the same kind of input, however clearly the Welsh and possibly Balmoral along with other more local well-known venues could be looked at as requiring special support.

PERRYWOOD JASMINE – 1st place Heifer, born on or after 01.01.18.

ROYAL SHOW REPORTS

The animals forward were of great credit to their owners who had taken the time and trouble to attend, especially those from England and Scotland as without these numbers we would have been in a terrible position. It would be wrong of me to start a report without highlighting the outstanding animal on the day from the Borlase family, Sacombe Dandelion-Oma who I placed Female and Overall Champion and who then went on to become the Supreme Interbreed Champion of the ROYAL WELSH SHOW, from such a low number of animals forward the Simmental breed/members had still managed to present/receive the top award and my/our thanks must go to the Borlase family for supporting our breed and hope they continue with Jimmy bringing their cattle out as only he can. The young bull class had the most entered (4) with the red ROYAL WELSH

card going to Sacombe Joker (F) a very nice well-balanced bull closely followed by the two Welsh members entries from the Jones/Davies families. There was only one animal in the 2017 Heifer Class: Overhill House Ice Maiden from the McCulloch family. There were 2 animals in the 2018 Heifer Class: 1st Perrywood Jasmine (Miss B Borlase) 2nd Sacombe Jenna-Laube (Mr & Mrs P.B and J.A Borlase) Initially although disappointed with regards numbers forward, this changed in the afternoon, where we were all excited especially yours truly to see our Champion going on to receive the top Interbreed honours. Well done and thank you to those of you who attended/ paraded animals and provided a welcome for everyone on the members stand.

he morning of the show and you arrive at the ground unsure of where to go/who to meet and apprehensive and hopeful that at least the majority agree with your choices in the classes. With then a Champion probably a female, knowing my preference, going forward to represent the breed in the Interbreed. Well clearly nothing was going to plan as the start of showing brought torrential rain and I began to wonder was my day and those having animals forward to be spoilt with discussions held about judging inside. These were soon put to one side with those showing having none of it, bringing animals out and my sincere thanks goes to each and every one of you for making my

day special and giving me the opportunity to judge the Scottish National Show this year in Kelso. The bull classes in age order (July/ December 2018) saw two very equally presented animals forward with the nod going to Newbiemains Jax over Braidwood Jed from Ms. Moffat. The next class (April/June 2018) saw a very correct/well balanced young bull from the Gwynne family take first place over those from the Smith/Goldie and Bishop families. The January born bulls were then paraded and Chestermann Jupiter immediately caught my eye as definitely one for the future and he was placed first above Jagger from the Smith family.

Sterling FCUK Impuls - Female & Reserve Overall Champion, 1st Place Heifer, born between 1st January & 31 December 2017

ROYAL SHOW REPORTS

The senior bulls were brought forward and bearing in mind the weather, here the three bulls walked on through the mud/ rain and were a credit to our breed. I brought forward Drumsleed Hivy as the winner of this class, closely followed by Iceman from Jim and Patricia Goldie with then Jacob from the Houldey family. Drumsleed Hivy went on to be my Overall Male Champion followed by Iceman as the reserve. The females began with a very good class in the April to August 2018 age group with 5 forward. My winner Woodhall Jocelyn was a very smart heifer who caught my eye on entering and went on to be given the Overall Junior Female Championship. The Woodhall herd had 2 others in the class who were split by the Simmers families Backmuir Kreole Jazz with Manor Park Jess Wilde who was giving away age/ size. In the next age class, January to March 2018 of the two forward Brandane J-Lo took the honours and went on to be tapped out as the Reserve Junior Female. I had been told there would be animals forward who would catch the eye and that had certainly been the case with the males and juniors paraded to that point.

ROYAL SHOW REPORTS Woodhall Jocelyn – Junior Female Champion, 1st Place Heifer, born between 1st April & 31st August 2018.

The rain had slowed down and in came 4 heifers born in 2017 with Sterling FCUK Impuls looking every bit as good as she had when I have seen her both on the show circuit and again at Stirling taking the red card. Followed by heifers from the Goldie and Lyle families that would have red cards on other occasions. The cow class unfortunately had only one entry David Craigs Kennox Taras Gem who I had been looking forward to see now she had calved. Clearly the calf was being done well and in turn this had left Gem in her working clothes. She still went on to be my Reserve Female Champion with her calf Gem’s Kitkat taking Best Calf 2019. This then left me with a super Male Champion who had great legs and feet, who moved despite his weight as if he was on a track against a lovely in calf heifer, who you could say was at ’12 o’clock’ as far as fitness was concerned, so on this occasion, my Champion was Drumsleed Hivy, bred, owned and shown by the Smith family, he was a credit to all their hard work. My Female/Overall Reserve went to Sterling FCUK Impuls from the Simmers family with my hope being that she comes out next year with a calf at foot and if she looks like she did here there will be many more red rosettes on the way. Thank you again to everybody for putting up with me and I look forward to competing against you all next year at the 2020 show in Carlisle.

irstly, I would like to thank the Pembrokeshire Agricultural Society for asking me to judge. It was a great honour to be invited to judge the Welsh National Show of Simmentals. Senior Bull class – Shiloh Farm Forever Royal, stood alone, shown in his working clothes but moving freely around the ring. The January Bull class was won by Cwarre Jester 18, a well fleshed bull that moved well. He excelled through the rib and loin and will be an asset to any herd. He went

www.britishsimmental.co.uk

on to stand Male Champion. The April Class had 2 bulls forward. I placed Alreb Jonesy over Hirwaun Jimmy Mac. Jonesey stood a slightly smaller bull to Jimmy Mac but Jonesey was better through the rear quarter being longer from hip to pin, fuller and deeper through the second thigh, he also moved better. The second placed bull Hirwaun Jimmy Mac will make a big long bull and needs time to fill into his frame. Difficult to judge these two as two totally different bulls but on the day Alreb Jonesey

ROYAL SHOW REPORTS was the more complete bull he went on to be Reserve Male Champion. The Bull Calf Class – Gwili Jack 18 stood alone but a worthy winner. Well fleshed with plenty of potential for the future. Senior Cow was won by Kilbride Farm Eunice 153rd. A big well fleshed cow who edged Welston King Clara into second place. The 2yr old Heifer class had two forward with very little to separate them. The nod went to Crugmelyn Icing Sugar over Crugmelyn Indigo. Just 2yr old this darker coloured heifer had exceptional ring presence. She was well balanced, covering a lot of ground when standing. Good in the shoulder. A well sprung rib and good through the loin. Icing Sugar going on to be Female Champion, one for the future. The Heifer Class born after September 17 was won by Cwarre Rosie’s Ilex a good well-balanced heifer who exhibited a lovely breed type and should mature well. The Yearling class was won by Cwarre Dora’s Jigsaw a stylish heifer who caught the eye with her presence. A strong heifer who went on to stand Reserve Female Champion. The April class was won by Crugmelyn Jelly Baby and the Calf class was won by Cwarre Rosie’s Jasmin. Sadly, the entry lacked significant numbers, but the animals forward were all excellent examples of the breed. The Male Champion Cwarre Jester 18 a stylish well-muscled bull stood over the Female Champion Crugmelyn Icing Sugar to take the Championship. I would like to thank all exhibitors for bringing their animals forward. Well done everyone.

big thank you to the Northern Ireland Simmental Club for inviting me to judge their National Show, the weather came with me! To start with we had a cow doing what they do best with a superb calf at foot. A young cow with plenty of character that moved well, and not overdone, Ranfurly Weikel 18th H2 later became Female Champion and Reserve Overall. Moving onto the Senior Heifer class, maybe not the strongest of classes but two super heifers both turned out very professionally with Newbiemains Intrepid

exhibited by Jonathan Henderson taking the first prize. The Intermediate Heifer class presented four outstanding heifers, with first place going to Ranfurly Weikel 23rd. I couldn’t help but feel while I was judging that she was very similar in type to the cow with the calf at foot in the first class. She actually turned out to be her full sister and later became Reserve Female Champion. The Junior Heifer class had six completely different type of heifers. I had to go with Cleenagh Jessica on the day as she really was at 12 O’Clock for a

ROYAL SHOW REPORTS junior heifer. I did also like the second placed heifer Slievenagh Jewel who must have been giving quite a bit of age away and without a doubt her day will come. The next Junior Heifer class was well represented with Coolcran Lady Jasmine being the clear winner. Overall I thought the females were of the highest quality and would not look out of place in any show in the UK. The first Junior Bull class was won by Ranfurly Jameson. He had presence, style, locomotion and was exceptionally well turned. He later became Breed Champion and went on to Champion of Champions at the show. It was a strong class with exceptionally well turned out young bulls. The next Junior Bull class was a lot easier to judge with only three bulls forward, and three completely different types altogether. I went with Derrycallaghan Jackpot, he was a bull with natural style and width. The last Junior Bull was the big growth bull Coolcran Jameson, Again a strong class, Coolcran Jameson was a big bull for his age who moved well with plenty of width and style. The best bull calf went to Breaghey Kingdom. This was a super calf and later went on to achieve Reserve Male Champion. The only way I could justify this was lining up the first prize Junior bulls. To judge a calf against young bulls I always feel you need to value the animal as if you were buying them. The Northern Ireland Club can be immensely proud of the standard and quality of cattle forward and I thoroughly enjoyed my day. Good luck to all members and exhibitors with your future shows.

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.

Feet Please ensure that feet and legs are sound and locomotion is satisfactory.
