Castleton Ram Sale Promotion and Preview

Dear Tup Sale Producer/Buyer,

We have pleasure in inviting you to the above event designed as a promotional evening for the Tup Sales on Thursday 4th October and Friday 5th October.

Producers are invited to bring a ram/rams that will be included in the sale, to be presented for viewing on the evening to potential purchasers, with the opportunity for the tups to be photographed for promotional purposes through social media and advertising.

Pippa Williams of Clevedale Veterinary Practice will give a Powerpoint Presentation and talk on ‘What do we want out of a ram?’, covering topics including;

- Ram longevity
- What might a ram bring with him other than genetics?
- OPA (Video and Demo of Scanning)
- Sheep Scab
- Maedi Visna
- Anthelmintic resistant wormers/fluke.

There will also be a pie and peas supper available. We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible. We feel the quality of tups on offer at this sale has improved immeasurably in recent years and welcome your attendance at what promises to be an evening of interest to all sheep producers. Yours sincerely, Richardson and Smith
