Yet another well attended annual dinner set the year off
to a good start. As usual it was held at Arties Mill (Brigg,
Lincs) where we were served some very good food and enjoyed
each others company.
We had two fantastic farms walks this
year, the first kindly put on by our Chair Person Pat Thurston
and his wife Mary Thurston. We were shown some very good
quality up and coming young stock some of which are destined
for the show ring and Pedigree sales in the coming Summer
and Autumn. The walk was rounded off with a lovely spread
of home made refreshments.
The second walk took place in September
where we were kindly asked to join the North East Club at
the Coppermill herd of Peter & Caroline
Goldsbrough. We were again shown some very good quality Bulls
and Young Stock that were being prepared for the Autumn Sales.
All members thoroughly enjoyed the visit and the lovely spread
that was put on for them all.
Lincolnshire Show saw some very
good entries again this year and the weather to go with it.
Our members enjoyed huge success with David and Jayne Picks
2 year old heifer Scarthingwell Water Lilly taking Supreme
Champion and Pat and Mary Thurston’s
Junior Bull Ferry Lane Alex taking the Reserve and Junior
Male Champion. Pat and Mary also enjoyed success with their
yearling Heifer Ferry Lane Patches Andrea getting Female
Junior Champion. The Eastern Simmental Clubs Breeders Class
was well attended with Pat and Mary Thurston’s home
breed Ferry Lane Lottie Victoria with heifer calf Ferry Lane
Lottie Bess at foot taking first prize with Brian Lundy’s
Caistor Empress 14th taking 2nd place.
The show was rounded
off with another fantastic spread put on by Margaret Steele
and her helpers that all friends and family enjoy.
