The Northern Ireland Sheep Programme is running two webinars featuring two of the participating farmers.

The first event on 2 July features Co Down farmer, Pariac McNeill and starts at 7.30pm. The second event takes place on 9 July, again with a 7:30pm start and features Co Tyrone based Mark Davidson.

Both events are open to the public. To register your interest, visit Log in details will then be forwarded closer to the events.


During each event, programme adviser Senan White will lead the discussion with each host farmer, focusing on the management changes taking place on farm.

The first event will focus more on rotational grazing for sheep with the second evening focussing on selecting lambs for slaughter.

Each webinar will be streamed using the Webex platform, which allows viewers to put questions to the farmers and guest speakers.
