AGM - Sunday 7 December 2014
MELTON MOWBRAY SHOW AND SALE
FLOCK BOOK SURVEY
The Annual General Meeting and Winter Social is on SUNDAY 7 DECEMBER 2014, 10.30am at Great Bridgeford Village Hall, Staffordshire, ST18 9PR. This venue offers easy access from across the country; it is centrally located and just 2 minutes from Junction 14 of the M6. The day will include an auction, competitions and opportunities to catch up with friends and members old and new. We hope to see a good turn out of members for the pre-Christmas get together. Like last year, for people unable to attend, commission bids are accepted on auction items and a catalogue will be mailed to all members in due course.
Congratulations to Melton Mowbray winners, Claire Shevlan with Breed Champion, Jeff & Ann-Marie Clarke with Reserve Champion (ewe lamb) and Nick Dowler for Best Opposite Sex to Champion with a ram lamb. Full Results CLICK HERE
Registered stock keepers will have received notification from Grassroots that the annual survey is now due. Can flock owners please ensure that they complete the very quick 'flock return' as this forms an invaluable contribution to the assessment of the future safety of the breed. Don't delay - do it today!
The importance of registering (or at least birth notifying) mainland North Ronaldsay sheep has long been recognised by the NRSF. CLICK HERE to read Anne Lane's article highlighting the necessity of registration.
