Rare Breeds Shows

One of the important (and enjoyable) ways to introduce people to our lovely breed of sheep is via show classes at the local agricultural shows.

We are now into our sixth year of offering a Breed Society ‘Best Castlemilk Moorit’ rosette in shows around the country. The number of shows offering these rosettes has increased so there should be one near you; as you will only be competing against other Castlemilks for these rosettes we hope this will encourage more people to think about showing who may be put off by the diverse classes. Check the listings below for shows near you and see if they have a society rosette to award.

So why not consider showing this year? – All these shows have classes or stands open to rare breed/primitive sheep breeds. It is also worth checking the RBST website as they also often advertise shows featuring rare breeds. Click on the website links to get more details about each show.

Sale for Rare Breeds

It is becoming more common to see Castlemilk Moorits at rare breed sales.

It is worth contacting the auctioneers to see if any Castlemilks have been entered, or if you have surplus stock for sale, to get details for entries. Please note there is normally a closing date about a month before the sale so it is worth making contact early. When we know the closing dates we will post details here.
