Rural – Jersey Country Life Magazine


The Summer Flower and Cattle Show of the Royal Jersey Agricultural and Horticultural Society took place over the weekend of 11 and 12 June.

It has been generally considered to be a very successful event, with nine dairy farmers showing their cattle, which were of high quality and has proved the value of importing genetics from abroad. There was also an excellent range of flowers and produce on display.

Results are as follows:
