THE Isle of Wight’s Briddlesford herd of pedigree Guernsey cows has once again triumphed at an annual competition.

The English Guernsey Cattle Society's AGM and prizegiving was held at Sparkford in Somerset.

Cows and bulls from the Briddlesford herd won seven of the 16 classes, taking reserve in six others.

Guernsey herds from all over the country were entered in the prestigious competition.

The society award for a family group of five cows, bred in direct female line, having the highest weight of fat plus protein in the last recording year, was won by Briddlesford’s Lily family.

The award for the best performing bull was won by Briddlesford Bluebells Leopold.

Leopold’s mother, Briddlesford Laredos Bluebell, was the supreme champion in 2015.

Paul Griffin, partner at Briddlesford, said: “We are so proud of our cows. Doing so well amongst the best Guernsey cow breeders in the country is a tribute to our herdsmen.

“We care for all our cows at the highest standard of welfare management.

"Anyone visiting our farm, shop and Bluebells cafe can see our cows daily as they walk back from the milking parlour to the pastures.”
