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
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!
