The Suffolk Sheep Society has postponed its National sale as a result of delays in availability of Bluetongue vaccine and resulting extension of the BT zones.
The sale will now take place on Friday, Saturday, August 8 and 9 at the Shrewsbury venue and is a joint sale with the Western Area.
A society spokesman explains: “It is hoped that postponing the sale will allow more vendors and purchasers to participate in the event. The new sale date coincided with the Western Area sale and therefore for this year only the National Sale will be a joint venture with the Western Area.”
The new closing date for entries is Friday July 11. The Northern Area Sale is to take place at Edinburgh on 24 and 25 July, as scheduled.
