Improvement scheme stand

A DOZEN group improvement and sire referencing schemes came together on an MLC-funded stand, which aimed to recruit new members to existing breed projects, and encourage the creation of new ones.

David Croston, until recently MLCs sheep strategy manager, said it was crucial to build on the success achieved by pioneering schemes.

Most flockmasters now accepted the benefits of using recording and techniques like eye muscle and back fat measurement.
