Message to all our members and friends from our Chair, Sally Shone.

The sun is shining, the silage is mowed and we have some shows!

At this stage it is looking hopeful that the Royal Highland Showcase (judged by Mr Mike Black) and our National Show kindly hosted by the Great Yorkshire Show (judged by Mr Calum Cruden, STANDINGSTONES), plus others with Bleu Du Maine classes are hoping to run events - lets use these as our shop window and fly the Bleu flag proudly.

If you still need to register your lambs, make sure you do so in good time before the Show & Sale season begins.

National Sale plans are well underway. Harrison & Hetherington are kindly hosting this prestigious event once again on 13th August. In our new format, we will be showing at 5pm on the Thursday evening, which will combine nicely with the celebration party for the 21st Anniversary of the Millennium Bleu where we will raise a glass and celebrate our breed successes (with cake of course!).

It is great to see that many breeders have been topping markets once again this year proving that there is profit in Bleus.

I hope your lambs are all growing well and I look forward to meeting up with you all very soon.
