WHO WILL BE THE GENUS ABS LONG LIFE COW OF 2015?


What do Empingham Anne 6, Stardale Royal Stella 3, Gladwake Neptune Collona Mapleigh Juror Socks, Cimmaron Even Jenny and Chalclyffe Iron Arlene have in common? The answer… they have all won the Genus ABS Long Life Cow Award!

 

Following the tremendous success of the 2014 Genus ABS Long Life Cow competition, the hunt is now on to find the Long Life Cow of 2015.

 

“The Long Life Cow Competition was created to celebrate cows who have made an outstanding lifetime contribution,” comments Genus ABS Cornerstone Manager, Hannah Noble. “There are many attributes which mean a cow will last longer. She will suit the management system, she will get in calf regularly over several lactations and she will be a high producer with good compositional and hygienic milk quality. Most importantly she will be profitable.”

 

Your best Long Life Cow may have an impressive lifetime yield, may breed back regularly, may never have had mastitis or had her feet trimmed, or she may never have seen the vet.

 

The 2015 winner was Chalclyffe Iron Arlene, owned by J F Cobb and Sons from Newburgh, Dorchester. Born in July 2004, Arlene calved for the first time in August 2007. She is in her 8th lactation and has already produced over 133 tonnes of milk in her lifetime, losing just one month in calving date over the eight lactations.

 

If you think you have a cow that deserves to be crowned the Genus ABS Long Life Cow of 2015, please complete an entry form. An entry form can be acquired by:

• Downloading the entry form here: 2015 Long Life Cow Entry Form.pdf

• Requesting a form from our customer services team on: 0870 162 2000

• Emailing: hannah.noble@genusplc.com

 

This year we will announce a winner from each county and a winner from each country (the outstanding cows from England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales.) The overall winner will be selected from the four country winners and will receive the coveted Long Life Cow Trophy, a glass trophy and a certificate.

 

“The quality of entries we received last year really highlighted the durability of UK cows and the excellence of UK stockmanship,” Hannah continues. “We look forward to identifying more Long Life stars this year.”

The closing date for entries is 14th August 2015. The winner will be announced at the UK Dairy Day at Telford on Wednesday 16th September.
