The Hayleys Holsteins herd were five-time winners of the National Milk Records’ Gold Cup:

– 1992 Winner
– 1994 Winner
– 1995 Winner
As of 2020, only one other farm in the UK has had greater success.
Dispersal of the herd
The mid-to-late 1990’s marked a time of severe distress for the UK dairy industry. During this period, the Hayleys herd was gradually reduced in size through a series of dispersal sales, culminating in the final dispersal sale at New Farm, Epping in 2003.
