Blackface Sheep Breeders Representative Wins iPad Draw

06 August 2014

UK – An iPad mini is on its way to Perthshire following the success of one lucky entrant in TheSheepSite’s newsletter competition.

The prize marked TheSheepSite’s official launch at the National Sheep Association (NSA) Event held last week at the Three Counties Showground in Malvern.

Aileen McFadzean of the Blackface Sheep Breeders Association was randomly selected after signing up for TheSheepSite’s e-newsletter, a weekly email delivering global news and information on sheep and lamb market trends, health, management and welfare.

Mrs McFadzean said: “I signed up to receive emails from for TheSheepSite as I thought it was a great idea having a site that brought all the marketing, veterinary and scientific information on sheep together from all over the world.

“I am so excited about winning the iPad, as I never usually win anything.”

Partnering TheSheepSite on the stand at the NSA event were animal health and research organisations Benchmark Vaccines and the Food Animal Initiative (FAI).

Visitors to the stand were able to learn about FAI’s five point plan for lameness in sheep (as seen on Countryfile) and Mydiavac, an inactivated vaccine for enzootic abortion in ewes.
