SOUTH WEST  HEREFORD BREEDERS ASSOCIATION

HERD COMPETITION 2016

It was a great pleasure to undertake the judging of the 15 herds entered into the event. From Wiltshire through to Cornwall it is clear that the Breed is thriving. The visits demonstrated the diversity of our Herefords and how they can fit into varied conditions and circumstances. It is evident that there is sound demand for quality product in the region and taking into account the enthusiasm of the Association's Members who opened their doors there are many great opportunities for the Breed to further expand and develop in this part of UK. My grateful thanks for all of the hospitality, particularly for such an encouraging and interesting show of cattle. All the very best for times ahead. Clive Davies
