EASYCARE SHEEP BREEDERS PLEASE PARTICIPATE IN THE SHEEP BREED SURVEY


PLEASE SEE THE EMAIL BELOW


Afternoon Louise

I am involved in the “Sheep Breed Survey” a survey produced every 8-10 years since 1971.

Details are on the Signet website. https://www.signetdata.com/technical/projects/sheep-breed-survey/

I am keen it neither under or over represents any breed in the survey, but the only National mailing list we have access to is through our industry partners, British Wool.

Now, in doing this we realise the potential danger of under representing wool shedding breeds – and we do various things to mitigate this and raise awareness generally.

Do you think in your winter communications with Society members you might highlight that the Sheep Breed Survey is taking place and that it would be useful if they could spare 5 minutes to take part and show the impact of the breed within the National flock.

Press release attached for more information. If you have any queries, please do drop me a line
