Advice of top calibre…

All the facts at your fingertips.

The Sheep Event gives you the information you need to come to decisions about your sheep business simply because it draws together all the right people with the best products, advice and information.

By working with leading organisations and companies we have put together a whole range of features including a health and welfare focus, and an appraisal of the costs of production for hill, lowland and upland flocks. It is a chance for you to see whats achievable, how your costs compare and what changes you could make to improve your business.

In a new move this year we have introduced a special focus looking at the issues affecting hill areas. The Hill Farming Centre draws together topics such as away wintering, hill pasture improvement and grass conservation as well as looking at organic production, breed improvement projects and the role of vitamin and mineral supplements. Taking the hill theme one stage further our carcass demonstration also includes hill breeds for the first time.

With over 200 specialist companies and 50 breed societies the Sheep Event is valued by sheep producers as the specialist business event. On behalf of the organisers and our sponsor, NatWest Bank, welcome to Malvern.
