‘Potential’ Blonde Show & Sale at Newark Livestock Market – Saturday 30th March 2019.
The Midland & North East Blonde Clubs are working together to launch a brand new and exciting opportunity to give Blondes some renewed coverage in this area of the country.
On the 30th March, Newark Livestock Market will host a show & sale for the British Blues and we have a great opportunity to put ourselves in the same shop window to Commercial & Pedigree Breeders with a show of our own.
With the kind permission and support of all involved, we are invited to bring the very best of the breed and showcase the British Blonde on new grounds, something we are sure members of both clubs would want to support and encourage.
We can develop the event to suit those willing and able to attend, we have no defined classes, if you can attend we will have a class for you......Bulls of course, Heifers, Cows/Calves....let us know and we’ll make it happen. Let’s have a show to be proud of.
Animals are sold in Guineas and there is just a £4 fee per animal entered by the market. There is a store market on the day and so we hope there will be a great crowd for us to impress.
The Blues are sold and exhibited under their high health terms and we are requested to meet these same animal standards. This will ensure all buyers have confidence in the Pedigree market and for complete peace of mind for all in attendance.
