UK Holstein team back on track to compete in Europe

In a dramatic U-turn the team of Holsteins from the UK will be travelling to the European championships in Belgium next week.

On Monday (April 1) this week Holstein UK announced that due to a recent outbreak of bluetongue in Belgium the team would not be travelling to the show.

 

However, after that announcement was made numerous offers of help were received from breeders in Belgium to help with the required post-event quarantine.

 

Determination

 

Sue Cope, Holstein UK chief executive officer, says: “I am delighted that we have managed to achieve our goal of getting a team of cows to Libramont. I want to personally thank the exhibitors for the absolute commitment and determination they have shown throughout and also to everyone else involved who have worked tirelessly over the past few months.”

 

  • The European championships take place in Libramont, Belgium on April 12-13.
