Ewe hogg entries sought for NSA Scotsheep 2020 show and sale (reorganised for 2021)
Entries are now being accepted for the multi-breed show and sale of pairs of ewe hoggs which will feature at the posponed national sheep event NSA Scotsheep 2020. (Original date - June 3, 2020)
The biennial event, organised by the Scottish region of the National Sheep Association, with Clydesdale Bank as major sponsor, will be held on the new date of Thursday, May 27 at Robert and Hazel McNee’s Over Finlarg unit, Tealing, Dundee.
It’s set to attract a strong line-up of ewe hoggs born in 2020 from well-known breeders across the country.
Nine classes will be on offer for Bluefaced Leicester, Mules, North Country Cheviot, Blackface, Suffolk, Texel, any other native breed, any other continental breed and any other cross breed, with both MV accredited and non-accredited sheep eligible for sale.
Closing date for the entries is Friday, May 14 and an entry fee of £25 per pair (plus VAT) should be made payable to NSA Scotsheep. One entry ticket to the event will be supplied per exhibitor and further exhibitor entry tickets can be purchased for £5 (plus VAT).
Sheep entered for the sale must be penned before 7pm on Wednesday, May 26 or by 7am on Thursday, May 27, to allow judging to take place within pens at 9am on the day of the event.
The judge for the pre-sale show is United Auctions’ retired sheep auctioneer and sales director Matt Stevenson, Gargunnock, Stirling.
Prize money per class includes £50 for first prize, £25 for second and £10 for third, with the overall champion attracting an additional cash prize of £100.
All sheep entered for the show must be offered for sale which will be conducted by United Auctions at 4pm. If sheep cannot be uplifted by purchasers on the day, it is hoped that arrangements can be made for buyers to collect their purchases from the premises of the vendor within 14 days.
