Laois winners in Irish Holstein Friesian Association National Herds Competition 2020

vin Flynn from Rosenallis was a category winner

There were Laois winners in the Irish Holstein Friesian Association National Herds Competition which, like everything else, had to be done a little differently this year.

Due to travel restrictions and Covid protocols, herds in this year’s competition were judged on production and classification.

In total 41 herds participated. Herds were entered by their clubs on the basis of successful performance at club level the previous year.

Congratulations to the winners of this year’s competition and well done to all who took part.
