Please do remind your members
They need to get animals registered in good time in order to get them entered into the event.
We look forward to welcoming everyone back for what we hope will be another very successful event. The new cattle building is now open and in full use, there will also be much more space for MV and Scrapie Monitored sheep which will be housed just inside the new building, adjoining the sheep building.
Paper entry forms are also available – please do let us know if you need one, or if would like to put one or your own web site.
To do entries on line – there are step by step instructions on the first screen, but please do tell people to give us a call if help is needed. 01392 270421 or email Libby@grassroots.co.uk
We will be sending out the catalogue proofs on 10th August and would be grateful if you could please get these back to us by 17th so we can put the final document together and go to press on 22nd.

11 of us had a lovely day with Simon and Jemma Dell at the NHBG Open Day. They breed Norfolk Horns, Southdowns, Gotlands and Suffolk crosses and we can’t forget their gorgeous Golden Guernseys. Simon’s parent-in-law own 120 acres, of which 20 acres is grassland and 100 acres is arable. They have owned the land since 2010 and originally it was all arable – they have now planted over 1000 trees and various conservation areas including a beetle bank.
Thank you to you all for a lovely day and also a delicious lunch of lamb and sausages in rolls.
