 Dr. Stephan Janz

(Germany)

"A show is fun" (Davina Stewart) but it is not a reliable breeding tool "A show is fun" (Davina Stewart) but it is not a reliable breeding tool for the key features of hardiness, thriftiness and fertility and this is even more true for a virtual show. Having said that, I am honoured to be asked to judge this year´s competition and join in the fun.
My name is Stephan Janz, I am 71 years old, I am a retired general practitioner. I have been involved with Highland Cattle ever since 1987 as a hobby-breeder/part-time-farmer and I do not have a farming background. From the beginning I have kept a closed herd - The Jiggel Fold - , adding new genetics through careful selection of bulls. The herd never counted more than 35 head.
I my early and more show-ambitious years my fold has produced three Supreme Male Champions at our National German Highland Cattle Show. In later years my personal breeding philosophy has changed a bit to a keener interest in the more rustic traits of the breed.
I have judged shows in Germany, Denmark, Scotland, Austria, Switzerland and Finland. During the last 15 years I have been working on a book about Highland Cattle - published 2020 in German - and presently I am preparing a translation for an English edition.
The Highland bug is highly infectious and there is no vaccination available. I am looking forward to you making this Virtual Show a super-spreading event and sending in lots of entries
