Champion Ewe Lamb Prize 2022
The BCPSBA will continue to support our provincial 4-H Fairs with a $50 prize for the Champion Ewe Lamb. This is a continuation of our support over the past several years.
For many years the Canadian Sheep Breeders Association has offered a $250 prize to the winner of a draw amongst Showmanship competitors at the Pacific National Exhibition. This money actually goes to the purchase of a purebred ram or ewe bred by a BCPSBA member. It is intended to encourage the improvement of our provincial flock through the introduction of purebred breeding animals.
This year the BCPSBA will also make the same donation at Ag Expo and the Provincial Winter Fair. Watch for these prizes to be listed in those show catalogs. Any fair needing further information can contact Freda Horton at firstname.lastname@example.org or 604-467-4088.
