News On Summer Events and Sales

All The News From The HDSBA!

2020 AGM – It was a weekend we were all looking forward to but to get the most out of the trip to Belgium it was decided to postpone it until 2021 when many more of us will be able to attend. So we’ll just have to wait a little longer but don’t forget to save the dates 5th -7th November 2021 when we’ll be able to head to over to see the great sheep and taste the chocolate!

A decision will be made in the coming month as to what form the 2020 AGM will now take – we will keep you posted.

2020 FLOCK COMPETITION –  It is with much disappointment that we have had to cancel the flock competition, The Council felt that asking a judge to travel all round the UK was just a bit too much this autumn so we will not be holding the competition this year – looking forward to a lot more entries next year!

Commercial Ram Sale Page

We will be creating a dedicated ‘commercial ram’ section on the website. This will consist of a list of breeders who have a number of rams to sell. Members can put a bio up of their flock and contact details rather than specific sheep for sale. This means buyers will be able to get in touch with you directly. We will be communicating this through all social media and advertising channels throughout the Autumn period.
