Cumbria Milk Records annual awards evening

Each year Cumbria Milk Records hold their annual awards evening to recognise those dairy farmers that have had a fabulous milk recording year.

David Allen Agriculture was once again pleased to sponsor and attend this year’s event at The Roundthorn Country House, Penrith on Wednesday 7 February 2018.

On arrival we had the opportunity to enjoy a drink in the bar area while mingling with other guests before being shown to our table.  Paul Barrow, Chairman of Cumbria Milk Records then delivered a short welcoming speech to kick start proceedings before we enjoyed a delicious three course meal.

Following the meal Paul again took to the stage to commence the awards proceedings.  Animax and New Breed UK were the main sponsors for the evening and presented the award trophies and certificates alongside Paul.

We were delighted to see our client F J & M Mattinson and Sons pick up both first and second prize for ‘Troutbeck Classic Gay 2’ and ‘Troutbeck Canvas Antic’ in the ‘Ayrshire Cow on Combined Butterfat and Protein’ category.  The results across the full evening showcased the superb quality of cattle we have in Cumbria, with some exceptional individual and herd performances, which are a real credit to the farmers around the county.

The awards presentation was a super success and we would like to congratulate the committee for putting on such a great event.  The Roundthorn Country House was a fantastic venue and the atmosphere and delicious food was exactly what was needed to lift a gloomy, wet February evening.
