On Monday 16 February, in the presence of The Queen, The King presented the Swedish Dairy Association's Gold Medals at a ceremony at the Swedish Society of Medicine in Stockholm.

The Swedish Dairy Association's first Gold Medals were presented in 1958 by The King's grandfather, Gustaf VI Adolf.

In order to qualify for the Gold Medal, recipients must have succeeded in delivering first-class milk from healthy cows for a period of at least 23 years. In practical terms, this means 16,800 milkings and 1,500 samples being taken at the farm.
