Brian has been a Director for Ward 1 for the past 14 years retiring this year; he took over the role from his father Malcolm in 2004.

 Brian was President of Ayrshire New Zealand for 4 years from 2011 until 2015 being the third generation of the Hutchings family to hold this position.  During his time on the Board he has been on various Sub Committees and Convenor of TOP Classification /Judging and Youth Committees.  He also represented our Association at national level on the TOP Advisory Committee and also New Zealand Dairy Breeds Federation and held the position of Chairman for the latter.

Brian is a TOP Inspector and a Senior Judge for our Association.

Along with his wife Carolyn, they have been very active Ayrshire promoters in their area encouraging and introducing younger people to our breed especially at the local A & P shows.

In 2012 whilst President Brian lead the New Zealand delegation of Ayrshire breeders to the World Ayrshire Federation Conference in South Africa, speaking at one of the Conference sessions about the Ayrshire Breed in New Zealand.

I would like to acknowledge the support that Brian has received from his family in particular his wife Carolyn and daughters Kerri and Megan.  As we all know, someone has to do the work back home.

It is with pleasure that the Board of Directors of Ayrshire New Zealand unanimously voted in favour of making Brian Hutchings an Honorary Life Member of Ayrshire New Zealand.
