Making it easy with EBLEX at Sheep 2006

HOW can you make management of your flock easier and ensure resources such as machinery and labour are being used to their best advantage?

The answers, along with a swathe of other activities, will be available on the English Beef and Sheep Executive (EBLEX) stand in the Avon Hall at the Sheep 2006 Event at Malvern’s Three Counties Showground on Tuesday August 2.

Free copies of the latest EBLEX Better Returns manual on Easier Management will be available to English levy payers and its author, John Vipond from the Scottish Agricultural College (SAC), will be on hand to give help and advice to farmers on a one-to-one basis.

Also available on the stand will be the 2006 Better Returns Recorded Flocks Directory and during the day lamb butchery demonstrations will be held to highlight the physical and financial differences between producing lean and over fat carcases.

The stand will also play host, in conjunction with the National Sheep Association (NSA), to the National Lamb Selection Competition and visitors to the stand will be able to brush up their lamb selection skills with the help of Better Returns trainers.

Chris Lloyd, EBLEX Industry Development Manager said: “The EBLEX Better Returns stand will have more activity and more to offer levy payers than ever before – we are looking forward to welcoming and talking to sheep farmers from all over the country.”
