Meurig James, Head of Breed Development for Holstein UK, commented “The Master Breeder Award is the pinnacle of success for all of the Holstein UK members who achieve this fantastic accolade. The award recognises herds that breed and develop outstanding cattle with renowned production, conformation, health and longevity. I would like to congratulate the 2022 Master Breeders and make a special mention to the Newry herd which is the first UK herd to win the award three times. I look forward to seeing the winners receive their awards at events around the UK later this year. Balmoral Show will be a particular highlight with five out of the ten award winners residing in Northern Ireland.”
