TWO sheep farmers are contesting the English southern region British Wool Marketing Board elections.

Producers will be able to cast their vote for either John Doel, of Melksham, Wiltshire, or Frank Langrish, from Rye, East Sussex. Voting papers will be sent out on Feb 29.

Three retiring British Wool Marketing Board members have been returned unopposed for a three-year term, beginning on Apr 1, 1996. John McNaughton (Scottish Central), Jeff Davies (Welsh Southern) and Alun Evans (Welsh Northern) were joined by special member Rog Wood in the uncontested elections. &#42
