August Newsletter 2020

Dear British Simmental Pedigree and Commercial Breeders,

The Cornwall Simmental Club committee has made the following decisions respecting the current social distancing measures.

  • The A.G.M. usually held in November is cancelled and the current officers and committee members have agreed to continue until November 2021
  • All subscriptions paid by pedigree and associate members for 2020 will be rolled over until November 2021
  • Any new member subscriptions paid during 2020 will be due for renewal in November 2021
  • The Club will approach the Society requesting sponsorship for the 2020 Suckler Calf Sales held by Lodge and Thomas, Truro Market in October for the top priced lots. The club will offer a financial incentive for the purchasers of the top priced lots in each of the four classes. No judging will take place this year. 
  • There will be no herd competition this year and an on-line photographic competition held instead. Mrs Judy Borlase has kindly agreed to judge. There are no entry fees and classes are open to all pedigree and commercial breeders resident in Cornwall. Members and non-members of the Cornwall Simmental Club are invited to participate to celebrate the British Simmental breed and quality cattle our county produces.

Yours sincerely

Bridget Olds Secretary Cornwall Simmental Club
