Win a Roussin ram at NSA North or NSA South West
In support of Marie Curie Cancer Care and Cancer Research UK, the society are conducting a Summer raffle, offering a 2019 ram lamb bred and donated by Martin McCornick, the society chairman and breeder of the record price ram lamb that sold in 2015 for 1800 gns! For just £1 per ticket you could be the proud owner of a very well bred lamb. All income from sales of tickets will be donated to our chosen Cancer charities. In a difficult year for various members, the society decided to support these charities with a commitment to run a generous prize giveaway. Either visit us on our stand or call Steve West on 07717476126 for your ticket. The draw will take place on 17th August and the ram will be presented at the Society Sale in Carlisle in September. No cash equivalent is offered.
Roussin hoggs turn heads at NSA Welsh Sheep May 2019
Derek Steen’s Roussin hoggs won the continental hogg competition at NSA Welsh Sheep this May. Ann Owen’s pair of hoggs also impressed the judges, coming fourth overall. The stand remained busy throughout with many farmers impressed with the display of Lleyn ewes with Roussin lambs at foot – a display that reflects the society’s strong commercial aspirations for our breed. We look forward to NSA North on 5th June, where we will have a similar display. For pictures see here.
