 BRITISH SADDLEBACK PIG HERD COMPETITION 2018

We would like as many members of the Saddleback Club who keep pedigree British Saddlebacks to enter as possible.

There are several advantages to holding this competition:-

    • Saddleback pig keepers who do not show will have recognition for their input to the breed.
    • Keepers will benefit from contact with experienced judges, hopefully there should be a two way transfer of ideas.
    • The Committee and Breed Reps will get a real overview of the strength and quality of pigs in the country, bloodlines and where lines can be spread around the country for conservation.
    • The BSBC (British Saddleback Breeders Club) wants to encourage members to actively partake in club activities, and thus gain more benefits from being a member.
      Judging will focus on:-

1.  Health 2.  Commitment to breed standards 3.  Improvement of the breed, marketing, publicity etc.

Judging will take place during summer 2018 and winners will be announced at the AGM on October 14th.

          Entries close July 1st 2018

Please email Sharon Groves: sharonwpc@live.co.uk indicating you would like to enter and giving your name, address, email address, telephone number and how many sows you own.

Feedback from one of last year's winners: "This is such a wonderful competition and a great opportunity for anyone that keeps and breeds Saddlebacks to showcase their efforts from home. We still find ourselves talking to people about it and learnt such a lot from the experience. We would encourage anyone to enter and really found the judges feedback friendly and useful. If you’re thinking about it (even if you only have a few girls and don’t show) go for it, you won’t regret it! Such a friendly inviting bunch of people that are involved in the Saddleback Breeders Club, you never know you might even win!"
