*  Not eligible for Show Flock Points

Show Flock of the Year

The Show Flock of the Year award will be based on points from each breeder’s eight best shows from the shows listed in this Newsletter.  For a class to be eligible, it must have 3 or more entries from 2 or more breeders.

 Show Flock of the Year (N.I.)

This trophy has been kindly donated by Ann Ford and will be for all breeders in the 6 Counties who are excluded from showing in the Republic due to Department of Agriculture restrictions.

The criteria will be as above except that, at present, there are only THREE qualifying shows.  These are Castlewellan, Clogher Valley and Omagh.

It may not be possible to get classes for Vendéens but if 2 breeders participate in “open” classes – they will still qualify under the present criteria.

—oooOOOooo—

 Novice Show Flock Competition

This award is in the form of a perpetual trophy kindly sponsored by the “Killeen Vendéen Flock” and is confined to new breeders who have joined the Irish Vendéen Sheep Society within the last three years.  Points will be awarded in the same way as the “Show flock of the Year” competition but will be based on the breeder’s best 5 shows of those listed.
