NHC AGM heads to Laxfield herd

Meeting in West Wales on Saturday 1st June, National Hereford Club members travelled to Talog, Carmarthenshire, for their Annual General Meeting and a tour of the Laxfield herd, kindly hosted by the Smith family.

The visit took in two large groups of Spring-calved cows with calves at foot by homebred stock bulls Laxfield Victory (by Weston Topper) and Laxfield Keegan (by Badlingham Broad Lad), and along with a large influence from the strategic use of AI sires, the herd is producing a remarkably consistent type which features the strong Hereford characteristics and reliable ease of calving in demand from bull-buying dairy farmers. On this grassland hill farm, all groups are run on a predominantly forage-based diet, providing a good advert for the type of profitable, low-maintenance Hereford cow which suits both the farm's location and its customer base.

During the AGM, the Club's officers were elected for the coming year, this time with all roles being filled by continuing officers, including Michael Church as Club President, and Tony Bradstock as Chairman. The meeting also provided an opportunity for members to have their input on the Club's upcoming headline event - the National Hereford Show - which will be held on Saturday 3rd August at Tenbury Wells, Worcestershire, for which entries were open and plans well underway to bring together another spectacular show of Hereford cattle.
