2019 has been a busy year for the breed society.
We have had huge success at the shows with Valais blacknose's stealing the show at every opportunity, inside and outside of the ring.
September has become a very busy month and we will continue to keep this month as our main month for our big events.
Our show and sale was a huge success achieving the top price ewe at 7000gns and ram lamb achieving 3500gns, we were all very grateful for the huge turnout and look forward to repeating the success next year.
Our show and judging day in September was also a huge success and we were very lucky with the amazing weather we had. with over 50 people turning up to learn about the Valais we were very glad to have it turn out at such a great day. plans for the next one are already under way.
