Each year the Shropshire Sheep Breeders Association hold a National Show and Sale.
Come and see and buy Shropshire Sheep at this event. There will be a full selection of registered Rams, Ram Lambs, Ewes and Ewe Lambs on show and for sale.
2020 Event details:
Below are the details of the 2020 Show & sale event. Subject to DEFRA guidelines, it is still the intention of the Breed Society to hold the forthcoming Shrewsbury Show and Sale at Hall’s Agricultural Centre, Battlefield, Shrewsbury on Sunday 26th July.
A final decision as to whether the Show & Sale will go ahead will be taken at the end of May. The decision will take full account of the then current Government advice and guidelines.
So planning is still going ahead as if we are holding the show and sale and the final decision will be communicated out to members as soon as it is taken.
Depending on the outcome or demand, then the Melton Mowbray Sale will still be available albeit later in the season depending on that one also going ahead.
