Montbeliardes- the next generation

CALLING ALL YOUNG ENTHUSIASTS OF THE MONTBELIARDE BREED

Montbeliarde UK is delighted to announce two new opportunities following our annual AGM, both of which have huge scope to further the knowledge and experience of young dairy farmers with a passion, interest and enthusiasm for Montbeliardes.

Firstly we hope to send one member to France next Spring to compete on our behalf at the Paris Show in late February, the representative will be expected to judge 4 or 5 animals and then give a commentary with the aid of an interpreter. This is open to anyone aged 18 to 25 (born 1.3.92 and 27.2.99) and in the first instance if you’d like to be considered for this opportunity please register your interest with Sarah at montbeliardeuk@hotmail.co.uk. It is then the intention to hold a training/ selection day on farm in Lancashire in early December 2017, so our entry can be submitted ahead of the closing date. What a chance #montys go to france.

Secondly our initiative to encourage new young members – the society has agreed to offer a reduced membership fee for under 30’s with a 50% saving – please again contact the secretary for a membership form – its now only £20 per year for society membership for the under 30’s, #supporting the next generation of monty breeders.
