At the time of May Council Meeting for SSBA, Claire reported that one small Export order had been received. Subsequently further Society orders have been received from Holland, France, Germany and Belgium. Some members have also received small private orders. Whilst the overall figure is likely to be much lower than the last two years, the sales help the UK market with increased volume of sheep available from the growing National Flock of Shropshires. We will see if the reduced value of the pound affects next year’s orders.
Ruth Mawer provided a comprehensive report on the work that she does on our behalf with the Grassroots system. Liaising with Marion the accounts records that are prepared enable Marion to keep a check on our finances and Ruth to keep a check on the sheep within our members’ flocks. One area that members could assist with is to check their “birth notified” stock and kill/delete them as appropriate to enable Grassroots to provide an accurate record of the live stock. Planning for the National Shows and Sales continued with details being shown in Shroptalk. Paul Stead has managed the update of our website with the approval being given by Council Members to our new provider at the end of May. More details will follow shortly.
Paul has also agreed to host an open day at his farm in August, again see Shroptalk for details. Gillian Dixon has agreed to take over from Lorie Saffell as the Minutes Secretary and recorded the May details for us. News from Norfolk since my last notes includes weaning the lambs being completed by the end of April, the last lamb giving been born in the first week of February. This should give our ewes plenty of time to reach good condition for the Rams in late July. We have another family wedding in late February 2. At the end of May, I judged the sheep classes at the Essex Young Farmers Show near Chelmsford.
Tricia and I thoroughly enjoyed the day and the show on one of the warmer days of the summer. We have exhibited at both the Suffolk and Royal Norfolk Shows with some success, but have made several sales contacts through being there. Good luck to all showing members. If you can be tempted, speak to a member who does show for an insight, and then start by taking your best sheep to a local show.
You may be surprised. Les. PRESIDENTS BLOG - MARCH 2. On 5th March 2. 01. Council Meeting took place at Sandwell Park Farm.
Reports were received from the main officers of the Society. Marion Webb, as Treasurer, reported a sound financial position with the usual significant inflow of funds over winter from new registrations and membership renewals through flock returns. Alison Schofield, as Registrar, also confirmed that the upward trend of ewe numbers appear to be continuing given the volume of registrations received already within this year. Claire Jakeman reported that one small order for export had already been received although it is quite early in the year for orders to be placed. The weakness of the pound against the euro may help to encourage foreign buyers.
Efforts continue to be made to ensure renewal of membership. Unfortunately delays in returning paperwork cause extra work for Council members with ways of encouraging prompt renewals being discussed. There can also be problems in identifying who has paid if the payer’s bank do not make us aware of the member’s name. Liz Bowles advised that Bulmers had agreed to support the application to be made for funding for the breed profiling project with the application being submitted this month. On publicity and promotions, Barry Hodson has taken on the task of finding new promotional stands with a view to making more people aware of the breed at shows, etc.
We are also looking at a complete re- vamp of the website, the present version having served us for a number of years and also opening a Twitter account enabling further member communication. It is also hoped that a Field Day can be organised towards the end of August and members will be invited to attend.
It is hoped to provide guidance on critical selection of stock and judging animals to test the members’ skills. The lambing season in Norfolk went well with just under 6. Given our heavy clay soil and the extremely wet conditions, we have only recently turned the animals out, but they now seem to be enjoying the fresh air and a good crop of grass. We were also fortunate enough to have had three enquiries with regard to stock to date although our attention has been diverted slightly by the arrival of a first grandson on Leap Year’s Day and the engagement of our oldest son.
As president I reported on the increase in membership during the year with Alison Schofield’s report as registrar indicating that ewe numbers were now registering at the rate of 1. Ram numbers are also increasing. The accounts of SSBA showed income of approximately . The increase in membership and sheep numbers had boosted income with the main increase in expenditure being the investment in the Grassroots pedigree registration system and its management which is already showing benefits in controlling our records. Barry Hodson and Trevor Lightfoot stood down as members of the society and we thank them for their assistance in the past three years.
Anne Harvey and Jeanette Haires were returned to council with Ian Mc. Kirdy joining council for the first time.
We welcome them all. Show trophies were presented to those present with the details appearing elsewhere on our site. Those present were then educated and informed by a splendid talk by Libby Henson of Grassroots. We are grateful for the insight into the information that is available from the system that we have now adopted. The council meeting following confirmed the re- election of Les Newman and Paul Stead as President and Vice President respectively.
All other council officers remain as before. During the meeting Liz Bowles indicated that she had been working on the possibility of a further source of funding for work on the breed profiling carried out in the past. This is intended to help reinforce the benefits of grazing Shropshire sheep in fruit orchards which is at present a major interest to our foreign buyers as well as those with fruit orchards in this country. Sadly I have to report the death last week of John Bowles, a former president of the society, who as a breeder had established his flock of Shropshires in the 1. On behalf of members I sent our condolences to Pauline and their family.
The funeral will be held at Bradfield Chapel near Cullompton on 9th December around midday. Liz Bowles will let us have further details in due course. News from our farm is a scanning percentage of 1. I was also pleased to note in the local press this week that one of those hiring rams from us last year achieved top price for lambs at Norwich Livestock market with her Shropshire cross lambs. Best wishes to you all for Christmas and lambing if you have started before I write again. Les. Our first year showing by Janet & Charles Morris. Charles & I have been keeping Shropshires for 4 years and always like to watch the sheep shows.
This year, due to semi retirement for Charles, it became possible to start showing ourselves. We started very tentatively with 2 shearlings at the West Mid show in May.
We did this because they only required an early shear in March and a wash and tidy up pre show and halter training. To be awarded 2nd & 4th place with these 2 out of a class of about 1. Oswestry. Jeanette would drop me a reminder.. Isllywn Jones came to help me trim the lambs and I learned a huge amount from him and we turned out 2 ram lambs, 2 ewe lambs, 2 shearlings and 2 ewes for our shows at Oswestry, Burwarton, Minsterley and Denbigh.
It has been hard work, but very enjoyable and learning something new ( apparently stops dementia). My waistline is also trimmer because it is quite physically demanding. My notes from the experience: 1. If you can get someone with experience to guide you on what to do and when it will help enormously.
Research the shows you want to enter early in the year, obtain the entry forms and get a plan of action. You don't need to spend a massive amount of money on equipment but there are some essentials for cleaning & trimming: good shears, a large carder and a small one, a water sprayer, a dandy brush. A yoke to clamp to a gate is an excellent investment and several halters.
