PAYING YOUR ACCOUNTS BY BACS (BANK AUTOMATED CLEARING SYSTEM) Just a reminder that a number of Members have chosen to pay their accounts by “BACS”. “BACS” is ideal for making regular automated payments, helping reduce costs of administration and improve financial control. As the process is electronic, it removes the need to write cheques which can be costly and is often subject to human error. Payments can be made much later in a business day – up to 9 p.m. and are cleared within two business days to any Bank Account. Should you wish to pay your accounts using this method, you will need to approach your Bank who will require the following details:Society Bank: Account Name: Sort Code: Account Number:

-

National Westminster The Hereford Cattle Society 53 50 41 05613019

It would assist us that, when setting up your payments by this method, you request that your Bank use your Society Membership Number as a means of identification in addition to your name. You should also ensure that we are informed that you will be paying your accounts by “BACS” and that you advise us on each occasion a payment is being transmitted. This can simply be an email at the time your payment is made.

Details relating to “BACS” now appear on all Invoices being sent out from Hereford House


MAKE USE OF THE “ONLINE REGISTRATION SYSTEM” Members are encouraged to make use of the “ONLINE REGISTRATION” facility available on the Society’s Website under the heading “MEMBERS ONLY”.

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING Tuesday, 21st November

THE IMPORTANCE OF RECORDING BIRTH WEIGHTS AND CALVING CODES The Council wishes to encourage all Members to record “Birth Weights” and “Calving Codes” at the time that calves are registered. Calving Ease is of the utmost importance to our Breed and the more information gathered, the greater the accuracy of the results published, specifically in respect of the EBVs for – Calving Ease Direct – Calving Ease Daughters and Birth Weights.

NEW BREED PUBLICATIONS Three new publications have recently been released and are now available upon request or collection at any of the events attended by the Society’s Administration:● Revised General Management Guide ● Guide to Showing ● Guide to Judging
