Herd books from the very start of the Park Cattle Society will be auctioned at the AGM in October.


Volumes 1 to 17 are bound, complete and list the cattle, both horned and polled for the Park Cattle Society from 1919 to 1957. Given difficulties such as the war and changes of secretary some volumes contain two or more years of detail. The splitting of the horned and polled cattle into different societies during 1947 warrants very little comment in the herd book. The years 1957 to 1962 (1959 is missing) are unbound and are in booklet form whereas 1962 to 1983 are loose leafed A4 sheets that are stapled together. A couple of years in this sequence are missing but very few registrations were being recorded at the time. The 1984 to 2011 herd books bring us almost up to date and are mainly in the spiral binding of the up to date format.


In addition there are spare copies of volumes 1, 2, 8 (3 copies), 10 and 12.


These precious documents have been donated by Pauline and Colin Cooke who recently dispersed their Faygate herd. The proceeds of the sale will be donated to the Society.


Pauline and Colin purchased the Faygate herd (together with the books) from Miss Alexander and the fortunes of Faygate are shown in each volume as the Alexanders were founding members.


• The almost complete run from 1919 to 2011 will be auctioned as one Lot 1

• The spare bound copies will also be sold together as Lot 2

• An almost complete set of the Journal from 1996 to 2017 will be Lot 3

• Colin and Pauline have also donated an unused metal training halter said to be the quickest way to halter train a cow - this will be sold as Lot 4


If you are unable to attend the AGM you can still put in a bid for these items. Please send your bid in a sealed envelope to Ruth Mawer to arrive by Saturday 7th October.

Congratulations to the team at Oaklands College, Hertfordshire on their success with homebred heifer Hartoak Ellie. Standing first in her class of eight junior females, she then went on to win the Female and Overall Champion of the section.

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!
