Official Announcement Regarding Inspections at Sales for 2020

September 9, 2020

Official Announcement For Both Buyers and Sellers

Attending Bluefaced Leicester Association Sales – Autumn 2020

After Long and extensive discussions, the following decision has been made by the Trustees of the Bluefaced Leicester Sheep Breeders’ Association

Due to Covid 19 Regulations and Restrictions laid down by the Government and the Livestock Auctioneers Association and taking in to consideration the health and welfare of our members, Inspectors and our buyers there will be no inspections at this years’ Association Sales by the Associations’ appointed Inspectors

Ear tag numbers will still be checked.  Substitute sheep will still need to be identified and notice given to the sale office and to the Association office prior to the time of sale.  Where possible if you can complete your substitute form prior to arriving at the market this will save time, you will be able to collect your Blue Discs from the Auctioneers Office or the Chief Steward.  Substitute forms will also be available from the Auctioneers Office and the Chief Stewards

Any substitute lambs must be fully registered on the grassroots database prior to sale time

Wishing you all a successful sale season

M W Ridley

Association Chairman
