HOLSTEIN Northern Ireland has unveiled its 2018/19 Activities Card sponsored by Lely Center Eglish.

Established by Jim and Jenny Irwin in 2008, the Lely Center Eglish franchise has grown from strength-to-strength. Company director Jim Irwin said: “Lely is the world leader in robotic technology, and we boast a dedicated sales and support team which operates a 24-hour emergency call out service throughout Northern Ireland and County Donegal.”

Jim Irwin continued: “Robotic technology represents a new revolution in dairy farming, and the concept is growing rapidly on farms all over Northern Ireland. Pedigree Holstein breeders across the Province are among our loyal and valued customer base, and we are delighted to sponsor the club’s Activities Card for the second year in succession.”

Lely’s unrivalled product portfolio is aimed at reducing labour on busy farms, and includes the Astronaut A5 milking robot, Calm calf feeder, Discovery barn cleaner and the Juno forage pusher.

Holstein NI’s 2018/19 Activities Card highlights important dates in the club’s annual calendar, including shows and sales, annual dinner and AGM.

The Activities Card, which will be posted to all Holstein NI members, also contains useful information such as the club’s office address, and the contact details of club office bearers.

A number of copies are available at the club’s sale venues in Dungannon and Kilrea.

Schedules for the pedigree bull sales at Dungannon and Kilrea can be downloaded from the club’s website. Alternatively contact Taaffe Auctions or HA McIlrath and Sons.
