NFU Cymru & NFU Mutual Welsh Dairy Stockperson Award


Dairy stock managers are being recognised today at Denbigh and Flint Show by NFU Cymru and NFU Mutual with the launch of its annual Welsh Dairy Stockperson Award with the winner receiving £300 and Welsh slate engraved cheese board.

The ‘Welsh Dairy Stockperson of the Year Award’, now in its third year, launched is seeking applications from throughout Wales from those involved in the management of dairy cattle who are working within the dairy industry in Wales.

Aled Jones, Chairman of NFU Cymru’s Milk Board said, “We want to recognise the key role a good dairy stockperson can make to a dairy enterprise and to the Welsh dairy industry as a whole. Potential award winners will be judged on their care and management of the herd, the breeding programme, their handling skills, their involvement in the dairy enterprise and their knowledge of the dairy industry in Wales.”

The closing date for entries is Monday, 22 September 2014 and the winner will be announced at this year’s Welsh Dairy Show at the United Counties Showground, Carmarthen, on Tuesday, 14 October 2014.

Dai Davies OBE, Chairman of NFU Mutual’s Advisory Board for Wales said, “The quality of the stockmanship is a major factor in determining the success of any dairy enterprise. We have some superb stockpeople involved in the dairy industry in Wales and I am confident that this will be a keenly contested competition and one which NFU Mutual is pleased to support as the leading rural insurer in Wales.”

Mair James, Welsh Dairy Show Secretary said, “We are delighted to be able to recognise and honour a champion with this Award. We are pleased to be associated with NFU Cymru and NFU Mutual in this Award.”
