• AGM 2013.

    Four months into a new year and the awards for the 2012 show season were presented at the Devon Cattle Breeders AGM on the 18th April. Although they were supposed to be announced at the Autumn show and sale 2012( passed by council a few years ago) , this did not happen and a promise from the breed secretary that it would be in the Christmas newsletter also did not materialize.

    In fact to date there is no report of any awards, the only place this can be seen is at the end of the show supplement that was left last year on the website...... Instead of being sent out to members as usual with their Autumn newsletter the excuse from the Secretary was that the DCBS council were trying to save money on stamps.

    I am sure there will be some reason as to why the AGM has no report as yet.............maybe it'll be in the summer newsletter when this years show season is underway! We find this all very petty but on a serious note it cost Eastyard Farm thousands of pounds last year taking cattle to shows to help promote the Devon breed and of course our own cattle. We are sure normal service will be resumed for this show season as long as a certain prefix are not winning ribbons!! Gripe over as I'm sure there will be more to come throughout the year.

    On a better note the Eastyard herd had another fantastic year in the show ring in 2012.

    A few highlights being our young bull going one better than Devon County & Royal Cornwall, by winning breed champion at Bath & West and then being tappend forward in the top four in the interbreed class. Him being the only native put forward.

    Winning the junior interbreeds pairs at Cornwall show with Eastyard Milly & the young Stonegrove bull, both of which did very well last year as Milly was reserve junior female of the year & the Stonegrove bull joint junior male of the year.

    At Woolsery show winning supreme interbreed champion with a two year old home bred heifer. Devon Red Ruby's winning interbreed classes bodes well for the Devon breed as a whole, shame they are not promoted as welll as they should be by the society.

    At the DCBS AGM the Eastyard herd was awarded Breeder of the year for the second year running, Bull of the year, junior female of the year, reserve junior female of the year & the Holwell manor east cup for the second year running. We had a lovely evening with great company with a full table of people who helped with the Eastyard show team last year and we are very grateful for all their support.
