Janet Cornock - Winner of the Idris Davies Memorial Award for 2019
Janet Cornock was announced as the winner of the Idris Davies Memorial Award for 2019 during a ceremony at the show
Janet has farmed at Cefnydre, Fishguard, with her late husband Gwilym Cornock since the mid-1970s after moving there from her family home at Lower House, Spittal. Janet and Gwilym developed the Cefnydre farming business from the original 70 cow dairy herd to a herd of 320 milking cows together with followers. The day-to-day management of the farm has been passed onto the next generation with her son, James, and his wife, Nia, now farming at Cefnydre.
During her time in Spittal and in Fishguard, she has played an
active part in the club and county Young Farmers Club movement. All
three of her children were active members of Fishguard YFC and for
several years she was responsible for the Junior Club of 10-15 year
Janet has made a significant contribution to local agriculture, primarily through her involvement with the North Pembrokeshire Farmers' Club since she moved to Cefnydre. She initially took the role of Assistant Secretary of the North Pembrokeshire Farmers' Club before becoming Club Secretary and Secretary for Fishguard Show in 1995.
As Secretary of Fishguard Show, she carried out her duties and responsibilities with great enthusiasm, skill and effective leadership and she was responsible for organising all aspects of the Show. Fishguard Show is a hugely important event for the North Pembrokeshire farming community, and the show has grown from strength to strength over the years, thanks in no small part to the dedication, skill and personality of Janet. She has been a driving force to keep the success of the show going for a period of 21 years, right up until her retirement as Show Secretary in 2016.
In the last couple of years, Janet has played a prominent role in helping with the organisation of various local events as Pembrokeshire took its turn to be the Feature County for the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society in 2019. Janet provided the secretariat support for the North Pembrokeshire regional committee, and in this role she has been one of the leading lights in the fundraising efforts in the run up to this year's Royal Welsh Show.
Jeff Evans, chairman of the Idris Davies Memorial Award Management Committee, said: "Janet has made an outstanding contribution to the agricultural community in Pembrokeshire and she is an extremely worthy recipient of the Idris Davies Memorial Award this year. She joins some illustrious company in becoming this year's winner of this award."
Janet Cornock was announced as the winner by NFU chair Claire Morgan and is seen receiving the award from Simon Davies, on behalf of the Davies family, who presented the award.
