Bev Clear having finally located the photographs in her daughter’s camera, we can now bring you some pictures from the Surrey County Show and the South of England Show, held at the end of May and the beginning of June.

Animals from Pierrepont taking a rest in the cattle lines at the Surrey County Show. The red cards pinned above them are for a first prize and the yellow cards are for a third prize. The blue card denotes a reserve champion. From left to right, the cows are Arizona, Syria, Snow Joke and Cassandra. The flag is labelled “Pierrepont & Discovery Jerseys”: the Pierrepont cows are those that were part of — or are descended from — the original Pierrepont herd gifted to the CRT in 2006, while the Discovery cows are those that have subsequently been brought into the herd by Mike and Bev Clear.



Wotton Sultan's Cassandra from the Countryside Restoration Trust's Pierrepont Farm was the Jersey Champion cow at the 2012 South of England Show.
