Last Wednesday, 22nd August 2018 we were kindly welcomed to Graham and Amy Morton and family’s Simpsons Farm at Sameslbury, Preston, Lancashire as the venue for our Annual Open Day.
It was a fantastic day for the Monty breed, with a well run farm who were very open and welcoming on their breeding, dairy system and practices, and well over 80 people, a mixture of members, friends and breed enthusiasts were on hand to enjoy the farm, food and presentations from experts such as Duncan Rose of Carrs Billington who discussed the feeding on farm, and Ferreol Roche of Coopex who discussed the breeding.
Well done to our stock judging winners – Jack Gascoigne, Pauline Pilkington and Juniors Thomas Pilkington and Olivia Grindley. Thanks also to our master judge Dave Shorrock of Alta.
Thanks to everyone who made the day a huge success.
