The John Dennison Achievement Award recognises the dairy cattle breeder or exhibitor judged to be a high achiever and exemplary role model. The special prize, in memory of the lifelong long industry contribution made by Cumbrian dairy farmer John Dennison, will be given to the nominee judged to have the perfect combination of ability, sportsmanship, integrity and character.
John Dennison, who farmed at Scales Farm in Ulverston, was highly regarded in the industry as the breeder of the Denmire Holstein Herd on the 1000 acre family farm in Cumbria. Following his sad death in 2012 the Dennison family have annually presented this prestigious award as a mark of their deep respect for the lifelong contribution that John made to dairy farming, pedigree breeding, judging, showing as well as his promotion of the Holstein breed and his encouragement of the younger generation of Holstein breeders.
Nominations for this award close on Friday 4th February and will be judged by a panel of leading figures involved in pedigree dairy cattle breeding and its associated organisations. The winner will be announced and presented with their award at the Borderway UK Dairy Expo on March 12th.
Anyone wishing to forward a nomination should send a brief resumé on the nominee by 4 February 2022 to the John Dennison Achievement Award, c/o Glyn Lucas, Harrison & Hetherington Ltd., Borderway Mart, Rosehill, Carlisle CA1 2RS
