NORTHERN Ireland breeder David Hamill has joined the British Limousin Cattle Society’s Council of Management.
Mr Hamill, who runs the Cloverdale herd in Dunmurray, has been involved with the Limousin breed for the past 20 years.
He is an active member of the Northern Ireland Limousin Cattle Club and a past President of the Northern Ireland Young Limousin Breeders.
Well known for his tenacious character, David was the driving force behind the Club’s outstanding fundraising for the Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice earlier this year.
Commenting, David said: “I care deeply about the Limousin breed, as such being a part of the Council, helping the future of the breed is very exciting.
“Serving members in this way has been a personal ambition of mine for some time and I look forward to having the opportunity to promote and develop activities which place the breed at the heart of the supply chain.”
He was elected to serve on the Council alongside Herefordshire based Richard Bartle.
On welcoming Richard and David, Chairman Michael Cursiter said: “Richard and David both bring distinct characteristics to the Management team, they have lots to offer the work of the BLCS in their three-year term of office. I
welcome them on board and look forward to working together in the future.”
Also at the Council of Management meeting held following the AGM on September 20, Michael Cursiter was re-elected by Council to serve a second year as Chairman of the British Limousin Cattle Society.
At the same meeting Brian Lear was re-elected to serve as Vice Chairman and Gary Swindlehurst was re-elected to serve as Honorary Treasurer. James Cooper and Peter Kirton were also re-elected to serve as BLCS Executive Committee members.
