Hybu Cig Cymru – Meat Promotion Wales (HCC) is offering sponsorship for a sheep farmer from Wales to attend the biennial Sheep Breeders Round Table conference in Nottingham between 17-19 November.
The conference, entitled ‘Thinking Positively’, brings together experts to discuss the challenges and opportunities for sheep breeding, with a special focus on the latest developments in genetics and achieving the best performance from flocks.
