Of interest from the British BFL association

by President on February 14, 2012

We are holding a meeting for those interested in hearing about the Bluefaced Leicester Association Performance Recording Scheme and our new “Performance Mule” initiative for the promotion of Mules sired by high index Bluefaced Leicester sires.

The “Performance Mule” initiative will help us supply the ever growing market for commercial ewes sired by high index rams that we are losing out on at the present time to our competitors.

This meeting is taking place at The Auctioneer, Borderway Mart, Carlisle on Tuesday 14th February, 2012 at 7.00p.m.

The main focus of the meeting will be a power point presentation given by Sam Boon of Signet this will be to show and discuss the benefits of Performance Recording in Bluefaced Leicester’s. We anticipate an increased demand for performance recorded Bluefaced Leicester’s with the launch of a recorded mule certification scheme.

We would encourage as many members as possible to attend this meeting.

If you would like to discuss this further please contact Matt Drummond on his mobile 07771934071 or contact myself on 07887 891678.
Myrfyn Roberts
Breed Development Chairman

***A group of US breeders have imported semen from performance recorded rams from both Mr Roberts and Mr Drummond.  The Bluefaced Leicester Union of North America encourages our members to use this data collected on UK rams as part of the criteria in selecting top sires for collection and import.

How wonderful! BTW I have been ennioyjg your granddaughter Jade, what a gift SHE is! :)That scarf is gorgeous, I wish I had learned to knit, but I was never patient enough as a kid for Mom to teach me, what a blessing for you that you let her teach you. And I laughed about the Cadbury mini eggs. Last night Jeff and I had to make a run to the store because this year I was determined not to let the Cadbury Egg season get past me without getting at least one (sometimes they run out and when they are gone, they are gone!) We bought 4, 2 for each of us. Had one last night. One more is hiding in the fridge. We’ll see how long I can hold out. Maybe I can find a recipe somewhere and blog making Cadbury Eggs! :)Glad you had a wonderful gift box, it’s always fun to get something! 🙂
