    North Sheep 2007 to be staged in County Durham

The sheep sector will be given a major boost at the National Sheep Association northern region’s biennial one day event, North Sheep 2007 to be staged on Wednesday, 6 June at North Hanging Wells, Eastgate, Bishop Auckland by kind permission of Messrs M W Skidmore.


The 15th technical event of its kind, North Sheep 2007 will be building on its previous success with a crowd of more than 8,000 and 200 trade stands. The event will focus on the way ahead for the British sheep industry as its gears up to the full impact of the single farm payment regime towards 2012, says the region’s designated chairman, Hans Porksen.

“North Sheep 2007 will provide timely information and advice for all producers seeking to maintain a sustainable and profitable business as the new payments begin to erode. Furthermore, our hosts will demonstrate how an efficient, well managed family hill farm producing high quality progeny to meet changing market requirements will have a firm future post 2012.”

He adds: “North Sheep will once again raise our industry’s profile at home and abroad, improve product demand and ultimately, boost trade and income.”
