Free Course - Devon
« on: May 24, 2012, 09:47:21 am »

I picked this up on my Facebook page - I thought it might be useful to put on here too.
Free Sheep course![/size]
Eblex are running a Sheep live to dead event on Wed 30th May 0900-1330 at Jasper's South Petherwin. You look at the live animals to assess fat cover and conformation, then see the same animals on the hook in the chillers and the actual classification so you can compare the two assessments. There are not enough people booked on the course yet, so contact sandra wilson on 01904 771211 or
k to book.

They'll do more-or-less the same thing at ScotSheep, and have loads of materials to help you understand conformation.  Everyone north of Manchester going?   :)
Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing

Live in a cohousing community with small farm for our own use.  Dairy cows (rearing their own calves for beef), pigs, sheep for meat and fleece, ducks and hens for eggs, veg and fruit growing
