FOR those people with a love of cattle, a visit to a really good herd of Ayrshires is something of a treat! Recently a party of such people had the privilege of visiting ‘our’ Ravenhill Herd, owned by John and Caroline Suffern, for a judging seminar.
This week we are turning the clock back to that other World Cup Year of 1966 … but that’s enough about football! On Saturday, August 26, 1966, many farmers travelled to a farm off Portadown’s Gilford Road, the home of the Carrickblacker Herd of pedigree Ayrshire cattle owned by Mr AM Nicholson. Today, almost 52 years on, we provide some old photographs to remind us of that special day.
