THE SOUTHDOWN SHEEP SOCIETY FLOCK COMPETITION
The Flock Competition is open to all members and it is a great way of getting a senior Southdown flockmaster to cast a knowing eye over your flock and to share their knowledge and experience of Southdowns….. you might also win some silverware!
The judge will usually spend 1-2 hours with you walking through and inspecting your flock. Ideally all stock needs to be close at hand and some lambs, rams and shearlings may need to be penned for closer inspection.
The competition takes place in September-October and costs £25 to enter.
There are three classes: CLASS A – Flock of 40 ewes or more, CLASS B – Flock of 10 - 39 ewes, and CLASS C – NOVICE (for flocks which have not to have previously won a first prize in the Competition).
The competition rules are at the bottom of this page.
