Bruce McIntosh
Friday, 14 September 2018

Bruce McIntosh, of Woodside Park Holsteins in Australia, passed away on the 1/9/18 at home in the presence of his caring family. 

Starting in 1968, Woodside Park proceeded to secure the best blood lines possible for establishing a Holstein-Friesian herd. Cattle were purchased throughout the Eastern seaboard of Australia together with live imports from New Zealand. Bruce and Nora loved their trips to New Zealand purchasing  foundation stock from Lesdale, Riverbrae, Tahora, Delorain, Lelburne, Monville and Lucenvale to name a few.

Since that time Woodside Park has been fortunate to parade 3 Champion cows at Sydney Royal with Wyoming Jewel Mary, Woodside park Marquis Fan and Rissmore Blackstar Sally (Leased from the Murray Family). The last two cows achieving Supreme Championship awards. In addition Woodside Park has achieved 5 All Australian awards including Premier Breeder in 1997 and All Australian Cow with Barkly Ladino Betsyann in 2012, owned with Bluechip Holstiens.

Bruce was integral in Woodside Park being recognised as a Master Breeders Herd in 1999 and was a member of the National Senior Judges panel with the Holstein Association.

HFNZ would like to extend sincere condolences to the McIntosh Family and friends of Bruce.
