The event usually combines Show classes (that take place in the morning), followed by the Auction Sale thereafter. At the time of writing (18th March) it is not known what the exact format can be until definite lockdown release dates and subsequent rules are announced. This page will be updated once further details are known .
Entry forms and schedules will be available nearer to the date
We hope to hold the very popular (ticket only) social evening and pub quiz at Shrewsbury the night before the sale, giving buyers and breeders a chance to enjoy some food and a drink and mingle in an informal atmosphere. Again, as at 18th March, we are not able to make any definite plans, but will make an announcement once more in known.
NEW SUPPLEMENTARY SALE
In previous years, some sellers and buyers have been unable to make the National Show & sale date at Shrewsbury. The SSBA has this year added a second supplementary date (sale only, no showing) at Worcester Livestock Market on 14th August 2021. On this date at Worcester there are also store cattle and sheep sales as well as the Zwartble Sheep National Show & Sale. Shropshires do not therefore has exclusive use of the market. The format and timing on the day will be set by McCartneys once lockdown release dates and subsequent rules are known.
Shropshires for sale will be inspected by breed inspector to assess them against the Shropshire Sheep Breed Standards. Entry forms will be available nearer the date direct from McCartneys.
