NSA North Sheep - Cumbria 03.06.2015

 

NSA North Sheep, Millstone Moor Farm, Cockermouth, Cumbria

 

The torrential rain on Monday night may have left the underfoot conditions at Millstone Moor Farm somewhat soft and muddy but this didn’t dampen the spirits of the thousands that descended from throughout mainland UK and even visitors from Ireland making the day trip with the ferry being so close. With over 210 industry trade stand and 40 breed society stands plus many demonstrations and competitions there was plenty to keep the crowds busy throughout the day.

 

The Agrimin stand was busy throughout with dozens of farmers coming specifically to find out more about the new lamb bolus they’d seen advertised in the national press. With the lack of grass throughout the country due to the cold weather many farmers were looking for a way to keep lambs moving forward and the lamb bolus for this very purpose was well received.

 

There seems to be tremendous momentum for bolusing sheep to overcome trace element problems, increased awareness for the benefits and an ever increasing drive for efficiency in the industry. It’s great to see farmers bringing forage/soil analysis to the stand for advice on how best to tackle shortfalls and antagonists.

 

Please feel free to bring these to shows or contact us to discuss how our boluse's can help maximise the productivity of your stock.

 

We now look forward to the long trip north to Fearn Farm in Ross-shire for Highland Sheep, here’s hoping it is a little drier, a little warmer but just as busy!
