UK: Deadline for 2012 British Sheep Breed Survey extended to end of month
The deadline for the 2012 British Sheep Breed Survey has been extended until the end of this month to give sheep producers more time to make sure their flock is counted
The project, funded by EBLEX and HCC (Hybu Cig Cymru/Meat Promotion Wales), aims to give an accurate picture of how the sheep industry has evolved since the last national survey in 2003.
Livestock scientist Poppy Frater said: “We’re very grateful to the 12,000 producers who have completed the survey so far. However, we’re keen that as many flocks as possible are represented, so we have decided to extend the deadline to the end of February.
“Ouessant ewes and Beltex x Soay crosses have been among the surprises so far, so the results are guaranteed to make interesting reading.”
The survey can be downloaded from www.signetfbc.co.uk or, to order a hard copy, contact Signet Breeding services on 024 7647 8829.
