Cattle Show Judges


The National Holstein Show Judge - Mick Gould

Mick farms alongside his wife, Katherine, at Grange Farm in Shropshire. The Woodmarsh prefix was registered in 1970 and among the first pedigree purchases was a Weeton heifer from the Dewdrop family and an Isobel from Hoohall. Today the herd is well established as one of the breeds most consistently high performers; it currently milks 350 head with a rolling herd average of just over 12,800kg. To date the herd has produced 52 100 tonne plus cows and key cow families include Melody, Lyme, and Zandras. Woodmarsh was the first herd in the UK to send embryos back to Canada and continues to supply bulls to European herds as well as the Cogent and Genus studs.

Mick is a past Holstein UK board member, Shropshire club committee member and has sat on the National judges’ panel for many years. He has judged at every one of the Royal Shows including the very last English Royal Show at Stoneleigh. His international judging career includes the International Dairy Week in Australia, and the Interbred Championship at the Sydney Royal as well as the Irish National Holstein Show.
