Flock Group

Increasing engagement on sheep farms is exceptionally important to us. The profit margins in the sheep industry are tight so it is important we make sheep enterprises as efficient as possible.
Our flock discussion group is open to all commercial and pedigree farmers. We hope that by the sharing of knowledge between farmers and vets we can increase productivity on farm. Throughout the year we will hold four meetings, benchmark production data amongst the flocks, hold an annual flock review (included in the membership) and make full use of the SAHPS online health planning tool.

Please contact the Farm Office for details.
