The organising committee of Sheep Breeders Round Table 2015 are currently inviting researchers to submit posters to be on display throughout the entire weekend of the meeting. Authors do not need to be present, as the organisers are happy to receive, display and return any posters. Posters should be from research projects that would be of interest to sheep producers and breeders. Please contact Liz Genever (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
About Sheep Breeders Round Table 2015
The Sheep Breeders Round Table is a biennial event and the 2015 event is planned for Friday 20th November 2015 - 22nd November 2015 at Eastwood Hall, Nottingham. The theme for 2015 is Get better or get gone!
International experts from Norway and the USA join the line-up of speakers this year, sharing their experiences and offering UK breeders the opportunity to learn and develop their businesses further. Norway was one of the first countries to engage in co-operative breeding schemes and the importance of working together to achieve a common breeding goal, through co-operation and centralised decision-making, will form the basis of the presentation to be given by Thor Blichfeldt, Head of Breeding and AI for the Norwegian Association of Sheep and Goat Breeders. Improving sheep breeding is not without challenges and Ron Lewis, Professor of Animal Breeding and Genomics at the University of Nebraska, will highlight those faced in North America, alongside the successes and the opportunities that lie ahead.
Kindly note that places are filling up fast and the deadline for bookings is 31 October 2015.
