Young Farmers from Myerscough AC

Had a wonderful opportunity to meet students from Myerscough Agricultural College, Lancashire, at Launde today . I give a short demonstration with Todd and the Aberfield sheep that are being piloted here. Having found it very hard to get advice when I first started I made it my goal in life to to be generous with advice, particularly to young people. The sheepdog world and trialling needs youngsters to take up the discipline and give it a much need boost. Hill farm is very progressive and running some two and a half thousand sheep. Each year 600 Aberfield gimmers are brought in to top up the numbers. Approximately 1800 are lambed each year.
