Charity helps Jersey farm rebuild lost herd

The owner of a farm devastated by the loss of more than 100 Jersey cows has expressed his "massive gratitude" for financial aid to rebuild his herd.

An investigation into the deaths of 100 cows on Woodlands Farm in December 2022 found they were likely caused by botulism. Jersey Dairy said the farming community rallied to help in the aftermath.

Among supporters was the Howard Davis Farm Trust, which funded the purchase of 59 Jersey cows. Woodlands owner Charlie Le Boutillier said: "I am massively grateful for the assistance the trust provided.

"The speed at which they came through was amazing and really provided a huge boost at a time when things were very tough. "Just having the extra young stock around the farm provided all of us at Woodlands with the belief that things were going to improve".
