Shrop­shire Sheep Breed­ing So­ci­ety

Country Smallholding - - Show Guide 2018 -

Re­cently the Shrop­shire Sheep Breed­ing So­ci­ety has seen a rise in the num­ber of young­sters in­ter­ested in ex­hibit­ing sheep. With ex­cep­tional an­i­mals, the younger mem­bers of the so­ci­ety have mixed their con­fi­dence, abil­ity and tal­ent to out­shine the com­pe­ti­tion in the ring, go­ing on to achieve breed cham­pi­ons at a num­ber of shows across the coun­try.

2017 was the first time that the So­ci­ety en­tered a team into the Na­tional Young Star Com­pe­ti­tion com­pris­ing of Ge­orge Clay, El­lie Russell and Owen Pow­ell. The event is a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity for like­minded young­sters from across the whole of the farm­ing live­stock in­dus­try to come to­gether. The team not only demon­strated amaz­ing con­trol, skills of show prepa­ra­tion, an­i­mal knowl­edge and stock­man­ship but also a passion for their an­i­mals and the fu­ture of farm­ing.

It’s won­der­ful to ob­serve such good strong Shrop­shire classes in the show ring, pro­vid­ing a fab­u­lous rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the breed whether novice or vet­eran, giv­ing ev­ery­one has the op­por­tu­nity to shine. MORE: www.shrop­shire-sheep.co.uk
