Time is running out to enter this year’s NFU Cymru / NFU Mutual Dairy Stockperson Award, which recognises dedicated, committed and enthusiastic dairy stock managers.
The ‘Welsh Dairy Stockperson of the Year Award’, is now in its fifth year and is looking for applications from those involved in the management of dairy cattle who are working within the dairy industry in Wales. The winner will receive £300 and Welsh slate engraved cheese board.
Aled Jones, Chairman of NFU Cymru’s Milk Board said:
“The Welsh Dairy Stockperson of the Year Award aims to recognise the pivotal role a good dairy stockperson can make to a dairy enterprise and to the Welsh dairy industry as a whole. As part of the award criteria, potential award winners will be judged on their care and management of the herd, the breeding programme, their handling skills, their involvement in the dairy enterprise and their knowledge of the dairy industry in Wales.
“As a dairy farmer myself, I think it’s important that we champion those individuals who are leading the way in the Welsh dairy industry. If you know someone whose work deserves to be recognised with this award please get in touch with us and nominate them.”
