AgriScot Preview: Gloucestershire judge to take centre stage

Tasked with putting cattle through their paces at this year’s AgriScot is Gloucestershire’s Alan Timbrell.

A well-known Ayrshire and Holstein breeder, Mr Timbrell works full-time for Alta Genetics and runs pedigree herds of Ayrshires, Holsteins and Polled Herefords with his wife and mother at Glebe Farm, near Cirencester.


Making the 350-mile trip to Ingliston, his next judging job after AgriScot is a little more further afield, in New Zealand.


Judging shows for more than 30 years and on the Holstein and Ayrshire breed’s official judges list, Mr Timbrell is no stranger to international call-ups.

 

Fortunate


He says: “I have been fortunate in my life to judge in Finland at the 2011 Ayrshire National Show and All Breeds National Dairy Handlers competition.


“I have judged at many of the Royal shows in the UK and I have been honoured over the years to be asked by the Holstein, Ayrshire and Jersey societies to officiate at their National Judging Schools.”


On speaking about his AgriScot appointment, Mr Timbrell says: “The event has a tremendous reputation as being a first class show for dairy cattle and I am delighted to have the opportunity to judge there.


“It is fantastic Anpario is supporting the AgriScot team to stream the judging worldwide online.


“My only fear is if I make a mistake, not only will I have a Scottish audience to face, but if the New Zealand Dairy Event team see it, they might decide to cancel my invitation.”
