Good Afternoon Everyone,

The commercial open day- Sunday 7th August is open to everyone; however as numbers are limited to 50; Cornwall and South West clubs are being offered the opportunity to book early before the event is widely advertised and I hope to hear from you regarding attendance by 30th July.

Please save the date for the Club Dinner and Dance Friday 7th October and contact breeders, buyers, businesses as well as friends and family to make up your own table of eight. This is a night out together before cattle are housed and not just about celebrating the Simmental Breed.

The committee will need to have some idea of numbers by their next meeting on Wednesday 14th September.

Finally huge congratulations to all members that have exhibited at the Royal Cornwall Show and one day shows to date. Your efforts are very much appreciated. The impressive results in the inter-breed and young handlers classes should be celebrated by the Club and Society alike.

Best wishes

Bridget Olds
Cornwall Simmental Club Secretary



A big well done to the Killiworgie, Sowenna, and Treverbyn Simmental herds who came together to take Overall Reserve in the Team of Five Beef Interbreed on the second day of the Royal Cornwall Show. A big mention in dispatches is due to Judy Borlase who stepped in to judge the Simmental section at short notice and who, as part of her duties, selected the Simmental Team of Five to represent the breed.

A busy couple of days had seen the Cornwall Simmental Club supply the delicious aged sirloin beef served up at the stockman’s supper on the previous evening. A big thank you is extended to Bowland Foods and the Popes herd for all of their help. Well done to all involved in highlighting the quality of both British Simmental cattle, and tasty Simmental beef!
