BREEDERS ACHIEVEMENTS Stowey Lavender 56 GP83 LP100


Bred by M A Jeanes Farms Ltd and owned by P J & D R Browning We were delighted to receive, today, the engraved Rose Bowl presented to Stowey Lavender 56 for achieving 100 tonnes of milk in her lifetime.


She came to us in November 2001 with a number of her herdmates from the Stowey herd of M A Jeanes and Partners near Bridgwater, Somerset, to establish a new herd for us after losing our old one to Foot and Mouth Disease in March of that year. Born in 1994, she was one of the older members of the new herd, coming to us as a fifth calver, and very soon earned the nickname ‘Lady Lav’ for her dignified manner and no-nonsense attitude to the more junior members of the herd. She was large black cow by Juniper Rotate Jed, classified GP83 and went on to give nearly 105 tonnes in 10 lactations. We would like to think that ‘Lady Lav’ would still be with us, but proving not to be in calf and suddenly looking her age, we thought another winter might finish her off and reluctantly let her go whilst still fit to travel. She has left us with a daughter (by Roylane Jordan) and lots of happy memories.


Daphne Browning Emka Jed Vick 10 EX92-2E LP100 SP


Bred by G H Bevin and owned by Drointon Holsteins


ABOVE Emka Jed Vick 10 EX92-2E LP100 SP has a


Jordan daughter sold to Spain.


Emka Jed Vick EX92-2E has given 109,567 kg in eight lactations, the highest being her fifth when she recorded 15,648 kg in 305 days at 5.53% fat and 3.38% protein. She originates from the Gypsy Grand family and was discovered by Hugh Pocock in the Dalbytop herd of Mark Truman. We were fortunate enough to be able to purchase a half share in her, and she has been shown a few times successfully.


Jed Vick has flushed well to Lucente, Talent and Shottle, and has bred three VG85 daughters. Her 2006 daughter Drointon Jordan Vick was sold to Spain at the EX Factor Sale and has been shown over there and has done very well for her new owners. Jed Vick is due to calve with her ninth calf in July to Kartoon.


Debi MacKellar A Whitehills trio


David and Yvonne Stroud’s shift from the Cotswolds, near Burford, to Callington in Cornwall twelve years ago proved to be the right move for their 200 cow Whitehills herd. They have three homebred 100 tonners, all alive and well, each having reached this production milestone in ten lactations. The highest individual is Whitehills Mirabelle 27 (Townson Lindy x Strickler Showboy) at 117,336 kg including three consecutive 13,100 kg yields in 305 days, her best being 13,416 kg at 4% fat and 3.05 % protein (946 kg CFP, 121 PI). Her only milking daughter is Whitehills Mirabelle 50 GP by Lachstone Encounter that has already done 12,067 kg in 305 days in her second lactation at 3.7% fat and 3.1% protein. Mirabelle 27 calved her first at 23 months and her tenth at 12 years 6 months. The Kintress family, descending from the 1976-born Shiptonlea Barman Kintress, is the most dominant family in the herd and a pair of maternal sisters have both reached 100 tonnes. The eldest of these is Whitehills Kintress 32, by Boulet Charles out of a Lindy dam. Kintress 32, line bred to SWD Valiant, has a best yield of 11,508 kg in 305 days at 3.81% fat and 3.37% protein (827 kg CFP, 116 PI) and has three milking daughters by Larky, Jordan and Bolton in the herd. Last, but not least, is Whitehills Kintress 36, scored EX91 at eleven years of age and a daughter of Beachlawn Blackstar Bunker. Also calving at 24 months of age, she reached 107,886 kg with an average PI of 112 and a best yield (her seventh) of 13,335 kg in 305 days at 3.86% fat and 3.28% protein (951 kg CFP, 121 PI). Kintress 36 has only one milking daughter at Whitehills but she recently calved for the eleventh time, in May, with her much awaited second heifer, suitably entitled Kintress 100. This Braedale Knowledge calf is the first one at Whitehills to reach the 100 status – can she possibly live up to this non-genomic prediction?

We reported on the success of this outstanding cow in the June issue of The Journal, but we unfortunately mixed up the name of her breeders and owners, who are B & L M Kent and Sons from Nottinghamshire. We apologise for this error.
