Industry Insight News, Latest News, Members & Breeders News

Congratulations to Robert, Lorraine and Mark Hunter of CLYDEVALLEY Jerseys in Lanarkshire who have been crowned winners of the Lilyhill Trophy, awarded to the Gold Cup qualifying Jersey herd with the highest combined butterfat and protein.

The herd of 160 milking Jerseys achieved a combined weight of 878.42kgs per cow, yielding 8,063kgs of milk at 6.97% fat and 3.93% protein.

The sale of surplus stock from this all year round calving herd, usually 50 cows and heifers a year, is an important part of the business alongside milk production.
