Join us at North Tawton on Friday 25th January 2019 for our hands-on practical Kidding course.
We will cover getting prepared for Kidding (including equipment and drugs that you should have at hand), as well as the theory of correcting difficult presentations.
We will then put all of this into action with our practical lambing simulator.
The course will start at 10:30am and should finish around 4pm a light lunch is provided
Location for the Course is:
North Parks Veterinary Practise
North Tawton Surgery
64 Fore Street
BBGS Members Photo Competition
Since there has been a greater uptake of the society banners for promotional purposes from the members, the committee feels that the increase in demand warrants the production of new banners.
The photos need to be high resolution to enable clear printing onto the banners.
Class 1: Photos of Pedigree adult horned animals.
Please send photos of animals in a clean condition, a good representation of the breed, taking into consideration the stance of the animal and appropriate background scenery.
This example of stance will fit into the Banner specification.
Class 2: Photos of carcasses or cuts of meat.
Well presented cuts and whole carcasses in appealing surroundings, without packaging.
A prize of a £30 credit note for Grassroots to all winning photos used from each class.
Competition ends 18th January 2019. Results to be announced by 1st March 2019.
Entries sent to: [email protected]
Members are reminded that they can request the banners and promotional materials but advance notice is required.
By entering these competitions members are giving their permission to allowing the BBGS to use these images on all publicity and media platforms in any way they see fit. Without cost to the BBGS
