21st September – DYFED CLUB RAM SHOW AND SALE

This year’s Dyfed Club Ram Show and Sale will be held at Llanybydder livestock mart on Friday the 21st of September. This is an evening sale and will start at 5pm prompt, gates open at 3pm. The pre sale show will be held at 4.30pm; the judge for the evening is Mr Eifion Hughes, Gurrey Bank, Llandeilo.

 

The auctioneers Evans Bros have asked me to provide an indication of the number of rams Dyfed Suffolks members intend to bring the sale. If you intend to bring rams to the sale please let me know the numbers and if shearlings / lambs by the 19th of September. Last year’s sale produced a top price of 480gns for shearling rams and 420gns for ram lambs in the Suffolk ring and attracted purchasers from far afield.

 

 

DYFED FLOCK COMPETITION

The annual flock competition will be taking place during October and November. If you are interested in taking part in this year’s competition please get in touch as soon as possible in order to make arrangements for judging.

 

 

AUTUMN TOUR

It is proposed that an autumn tour to Scotland is arranged to co-inside with the dispersal of the Conveth Suffolk flock at Stirling on the 10th of November. We hope to arrange two flock visits after the sale It is likely that Hybu Cig Cymru / Meat Promotion Wales will again contribute financial assistance towards the tour therefore we intend to make the most of the funding available. If you are interested in attending please let me know as soon as possible so that arrangements can be made.
