Philip Allman has been re-elected as chairman of council of the Hereford Cattle Society for the ensuing three years, following the February council meeting.
Having picked up the reins in the middle of the last council term, Phil became chairman in March 2019, after acting as vice-chairman from February 2018.
Phil is now in his seventh year as a council member, having represented both Scotland and the West Midlands. With a long history in the breed, he is a face known to many, having won the Royal Show breed championship in 2006 and again in 2008 with Greenyards 1 Archie. He is also a regular judge at some of the UK premier shows.
Now running his new Geneyards herd based in Herefordshire, Phil says he is pleased by the show of confidence from his fellow council members and looks forward to continuing to push the society forward.
He said: “I am looking forward to the next council term and building on the great work already achieved by council and staff, particularly now with the addition of our director of operations. We have a breed with a great future.”
Following the ratification of a rule regarding the remit of a vice-chairman, Philip Vincent of Pulham Hereford, Pulham Market, Norfolk was elected as vice-chairman.
