PLANS for the fourth World Sheep and Wool Congress, to be based at the Three Counties Agricultural Society showground, Malvern, Worcs, from July 30 to Aug 2, 1995 are firming up fast.

The total menu centres on a congress conference at Malvern from July 31 to Aug 2, culminating in a Sheep Trade Exhibition on Wed, Aug 2, 1995. These events are preceded by two optional UK tours from July 24-29.

Delegates will have the chance to select one of the pre-congress tours which will visit UK sheep research institutes and farms in either the south of Scotland and the Pennines or the south and south-west of England.

Joint organisers are the Royal Agricultural Society of England, the Three Counties Agricultural Society and the National Sheep Association with farmers weekly as the main sponsors.
