  WESTERN AREA BRANCH

 

NEW LOOK

FLOCK COMPETITION

MAY 2014

 

Under a new initiative the Western Area Suffolk Branch which covers Wales, Border counties and West Country decided to hold its Flock Competition in the spring this year as opposed to the traditional Autumn Flock Competition.  Chairman Helen Davies commented that the flocks that had taken part in the competition had found it a lot easier as the sheep were shown in their natural condition and very little had to be done to prepare them.  Judge John Barker travelled down from Moffat and commented that the quality of sheep he saw made the job difficult but enjoyable.
