The THBC would like to thank all those at both Brynmawr Farm and Cow Hall in Shropshire who put together such a wonderful day for the Club meeting and summer herd visit on 22nd June.

The day began with a Club meeting in the straw-insulated building at Brynmawr Farm, a care farm and visitor centre who use their cattle, sheep and organic farmland to educate and provide opportunities for a wide variety of people.

Following a walk round the Brynmawr cattle and a tasty lunch, the group moved on to see another organically-managed herd at Cow Hall, where we were introduced to some Soil Association trials using diverse leys of legumes and grasses to improve silage yields and quality, as well as for use within arable rotations.

By showing your Original Population cattle you are not only promoting your own herd, you are promoting the breed as a whole and helping to raise our profile in the beef industry. Let's get plenty of cattle out there for all to see and put on a fantastic show!

If you're not sure where to start, get in touch and the Club can provide practical help and friendly advice on how to show your cattle - it really is good fun and you'll be doing your bit for the breed at the same time.

The THBC is offering £10 per Original Population Hereford exhibit forward at our three main shows in 2016: Royal Welsh Spring Festival, Royal Three Counties Show and Royal County of Berkshire Show.

It is hoped that this will encourage plenty of entries for this year’s shows to put on a super display of cattle and promote our breed!

If you need any practical help or advice to get started showing, contact Club Chairman Les Cook by phone on 07818 632353 or email albanycattle@btopenworld.com.
