Cheshire Show 2013

Another fantastic event this year for the Massey team. Over 400 milk shakes were given out to the very young (and not so young) who milked our faithful wooden cow - an attraction that has become a regular hit with many visitors.

The BBC were filming the Show, for it's 175th year celebration. The Massey stand featured quite well!

The Cheshire Show was held at Tabley Showground on Tuesday and Wednesday 18th & 19th of June.

Situated at the front of the Agri-Centre / Sainsbury's marquee, we were promoting milk to everyone and showing what a cow needs to eat every day to give us enough milk. Judging by comments from the public, they had no idea of what is needed. Quite an education!

Congratulations to Mr Peter Berresford, from DW Berresford & Son, Dale Head Farm, Wheston, Derbyshire who came first in the Ayrshire In-calf Heifer class with Heydale Ovoid 312.

Congratulations also to Mr & Mrs JD & JS Jones, from SpringField Farm, Mawdesley, who won the Jersey Cow in Calf with Bluestone Autumn Louise and also the Cow in Milk (having had 4 or more calves) with Bluestone Louise.

Well done to all the team for the great effort in promoting dairying to the local public and a big "Thank you" to J & B Woodcock, Yew Tree House Farm, Coppull, who kindly donated the milk for the milk shakes.

Competition winners (each winning a Massey FiMLAC jacket) are:

  • Mr Greenwood, Ashton House Farm, Chester
  • Mr Berresford, Dale Head Farm, Derbyshire
  • Mr Venables, Simonswood Farm, Cheshire
  • Mrs Owen, Lower Bickley Wood Farm, Cheshire
  • Mr Waller, Underbank Farm, Cheshire

Well done to all.
