We have two other large annual Pedigree sales which take place throughout the year, the first is the Centurion Group of Poll Dorset Breeders Show & Sale. This sale includes high terminal and maternal indexed ewes and rams from some top quality breeders throughout the Country. This is to be held on Saturday 9th April.
Our final and largest sale of the year is the South West Region Rare Breeds Survival Trust Annual Show & Sale. This one day event showcases the best of our native rare breeds of cattle, sheep, ponies, pigs and poultry. We continue to hold two group breed show and sales for the Jacob and Shetland Sheep Societies and look forward to welcoming more for 2016.
