It is with great sadness the Society reports the passing of Lady Dufferin of Clandeboye Jerseys on 27th October 2020.
Lady Dufferin had been a member of the Society for over 20 years and a strong advocate of the Jersey breed. The Clandeboye herd was established in 2000 and has produced some of the very best, award winning, pedigree Jersey cattle in the UK. In 2007, Lady Dufferin launched Clandeboye Yogurts, a range of hand crafted yogurts made from the milk of the pedigree Clandeboye Holstein and Jersey herds. Clandeboye Yogurts have since become the largest yogurt producers in Northern Ireland, supplying all the major supermarkets in NI as well as Aldi in Ireland. Alongside this, Clandeboye supply small local retailers and also produce some own brand products for Spar and Starbucks in Ireland.
Our sincere condolences go to all at Clandeboye Estates at this very sad time.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, there will be a private funeral at Clandeboye in accordance with Lady Dufferin’s wishes and memorials in celebration of her life at both Clandeboye and in London.
