THE results of the 2019 All Britain Awards were announced this weekend at the All Britain Dinner.

The Awards are a judgement of the quality of an animal which has been exhibited within the show ring at recognised shows or events during the year of competition.

All entries underwent judgement in the preliminary stage by John Garnett (Milnthorpe), Andrew Dennison (Denmire) and David Hodgson (Wormanby). The National Judging Panel were then asked to submit their votes to enable the finalists to be determined.

Commenting on the first round of judging, John Garnett said: “This year’s All Britain nominees are showing Holstein Friesians at their very best.

"The standard was fantastic and a credit to the exhibitors and stockmen of the breed. Credit also to all the exhibitors that have taken their time and effort at great expense to them for supporting shows throughout the UK and Ireland.”

Andrew Dennison said: “What a pleasure sorting the 2019 All Britain nominations, the standard being very high in every class.”

David Hodgson added: “Really impressed by the standard, quality and depth of all classes, but after visiting most of the major shows throughout the year, it is what can be expected of the quality UK breeders are now producing.”

Michael Smale, Holstein UK chairman, said: “Congratulations to the winners of the All Britain Awards 2019. It is fantastic to see such a large entry of exceptional animals presented to the judges once again.

"I am proud to see the passion and commitment that our breeders have for rearing productive, high performing and exquisite cattle that really do deserve worldwide recognition.

"Congratulations again to all the winners and I am sure we will all look forward to seeing many of them in show rings around the country throughout 2020.”
