NSA Scot Sheep 2016
Date: 1st June 2016
Location: Blythbank farm, West Linton, Peeblesshire, EH46 7DF
Blythbank, the farm on which Dolly, the world’s first cloned sheep was born in 2003, will be the venue for NSA Scot Sheep on Wednesday 1st June 2016.
NSA Scottish Region Chairman Sybil MacPherson said: “We are greatly indebted to the Campbell family for their willingness to host the NSA Scot Sheep event, which is held every two years. With its historic links to the sheep industry, and the first class flocks of both pedigree and commercial sheep on the farm today, Blythbank will be an excellent venue for NSA Scot Sheep.”
Blythbank spans over 1,300 acres, including 100 acres of trees and is part of the extensive farming operations the Campbell family are involved in. The farm is home to a flock of 2,000 Scotch Mule ewes, 500 replacement Scotch Mule hoggs and 700 Blackface ewes, along with 200 Limousin cross Friesian and three quarter Limousin suckler cows. A small, ten cow herd of pure bred Charollais, to breed replacement bulls and a flock of 40 Texel ewes to breed tups also reside on the farm, as well as 320,000 free range laying hens, with all eggs going to major retailers.
