Closamectin Kelso Ram Sales Friday 9th September 2016-Tup Taxis      

 

BMR will be co-ordinating the Tup Taxis at Kelso Ram Sales again. We are looking for drivers, ATVs/RTVs and trailers. We welcome individual offers and groups including Young Farmers. Young Farmers often put their considerable efforts to their own fund-raising activities. 

Kelso Ram Sales is one of the biggest one day livestock sales in the UK and draws sellers & buyers from all over the UK & parts of the EU. 

Moving sheep quickly and efficiently round the Showground makes a huge difference to the experience of the buyers in particular. It also addresses the considerable safety issues surrounding the movement of vehicles, people and livestock in a confined space. 

Please contact Lucy at the BMR office if you can provide drivers & or machines. 

Vouchers towards BMR training places will be available to those providing drivers and machines.
