2021 has carried on where 2020 left off. Without sounding boring the Bleu Du Maine has flown even higher.
Everything is up again; Membership numbers, registrations, sale prices - we are on a high.
This is testament to the quality of sheep and the increased promotion that we do.
We have celebrated the Millennium Bleu coming of age this year and hope you all enjote the gatehring at the Carlisle National Sale which gave the opportunity for us all to meet and reminisce and look forward.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the McInnes Skinner family for hosting the first of many Open Days; this was a huge undertaking and was carried out to an exceptionally high standard.
With no NSA sheep events in 2021 it was great to attend Borderway Expo in Carlisle. We would like to thank Jamie Taylor for once again providing excellent sheep which created a real buzz and thank you Becky for manning the ship on a very long day. On this note, we look forward to a flock visit to Jamie Taylors in 2022 for the next of our Open Days. I think we are due a treat!
I think normality beckons and so we can look forward to shows and NSA sheep event again next year as we continue to push the breed ever upwards. We also plan to run targette advertising alongisde varying other promotional opportunities as they arise in order to benefit all members.
On that note, I wish everyone a very Happy Christmas and a successful lambing 2022.
