Millennium Bleu

Millennium Bleu

Some important decisions taken at the AGM

One of the points for discussion at the AGM last week (August 16th) was the Millennium Bleu . This had originally beeen Gavin Shanks's brianchild and was developed to increase the use of the Bleu ewe. Progress and change evolve over the years and after a very useful discussion and vote it was agreed that breeders could cross either way. ie the registered Beltex ram on the registered Bleu ewe or vice-versa.  When submitting registrations where a Beltex has been used a copy of the registration certificate  should be sent. However the preferred option is still the Beltex tup on the Bleu ewe. We register the MB in a supplementary register and also allow MB on MB. This second scenario will however be a subject for Council to discuss in October.
