Jersey club starts new term

THE South Gippsland Jersey Breeders Club held its annual general meeting at the Leongatha RSL last Tuesday and has voted in a new committee.
Members Anthea Day and Trevor Saunders from Araluen Park Jerseys at Shady Creek gave a presentation of their recent tour of Costa Rica.
They were some of the Australian delegates who spent a couple of weeks touring with the World Jersey Cattle Bureau.
Club publicity officer Tanya Privitera said Anthea and Trevor provided a great insight into how dairy cattle are farmed on the other side of the world.
“It was interesting to hear about the differences in techniques, mainly feeding pineapple pulp as part of the Jersey cow’s diet and being able to source cheap labour to help around the farms,” she said.
The South Gippsland Jersey Club has busy few years ahead of it and in particular is looking forward to hosting the World Jersey Cattle Bureau delegates in 2021.
If anyone is interested in joining the club please contact Ms Privitera on 0408 649 259.

New committee: back from left junior vice president Shawn Hollingworth from Summit Jerseys, senior vice president Brian Launder from Glenmaple Jerseys, Treasurer Wayne Kuhne from Bushlea Farms, publicity officer Tanya Privitera from Inverlair Heights Jerseys and front, president Darien Mathews from Langdale Jerseys and joint secretaries Alan and Cheryl Launder from Glenmaple Jerseys.
