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.
