Semen from four British White bulls is on the way to a cattle producer in Hungary for use in a breeding programme with predominantly Angus females. Straws in the shipment will be from Castleton Kerfuffle (pictured), Hevingham Polaris, Smarden Trident and De Beauvoir Huckleberry Finn. The Society looks forward to seeing new British White progeny in Central Europe!

Trophies for the BWCS bull, cow, senior heifer and junior heifer of the year were presented at the AGM on 14th October, as well as an array of awards for the BWCS herd competition, judged this year by Mr Paul Pennington, Shropshire.
