Sheep “Live to Dead” Event – Dorset

March 15 @ 8:45 am - 1:00 pm

Free

This practical event, run by AHDB Beef & Lamb & MLC Services Ltd, allows you to handle live animals and make your assessment of fat cover and conformation using the EUROP grid. You will then see the same animals on the hook in the chillers and the actual classification so you can compare the assessments made whilst the animals were alive.  There will be plenty of opportunity to discuss various market requirements, factors affecting killing out percentages and dressing specifications.

Please note that all attendees to these events must be 18 years and over.

Numbers are limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
