Strong Showing at Dragon Jerseyfest

The inaugural 'Dragon Jerseyfest', organised by Welsh & Shropshire Young Jersey Breeders, was held on Monday 9th April 2012 and was a resounding success, with over 50 animals forward for judging.

Champion Heifer - Glanmor Julian Igloo, owned by Glanmor Jerseys, with handler Jessica Hall

Glanmor Julian Igloo

Miss Izzy Whittaker did an excellent job in judging some difficult & close classes. A large crowd attended to watch the judging & they were rewarded with strong classes of quality Jersey cattle.

Credit has to go to the main organisers, Helen Carpenter, Helen Cox, Ffiona Jones & Sian Williams for all their hard work and to all the members for doing their bit to get the 'show on the road'. Also to Elwyn Thomas, Rhian Roberts, Sophie Richards, Barry Evans, Huw Evans & Carolyn Davies for keeping everything running smoothly in the ring.

The show was held at Carmarthen Livestock Centre by kind permission of BJP Auctioneers who kindly afforded the use the mart site & facilities.

Thanks must go to everyone who came to support on the evening and, lastly, but certainly not least, to the exhibitors who made the show such a success.
