A plea from Clun Breeder Lucy Gilbard
Farming friends (with sheep) please could you aid with my research and complete my survey! This survey is being conducted as part of my Honours Research Project in the Rural Business Degree at the University of Plymouth and the Duchy College.
If you are a livestock farmer within the United Kingdom, who has sheep, I would be very grateful if you could aid with my research and take five minutes of your time to complete this short survey.
This survey is interested in the current business practices and intentions of farmers post-Brexit.
This is your opportunity to have your say and weigh in on the great Brexit debate!
Thank you for your time.

Megan Davies was the driving force behind one of the most successful Clun flocks of the 1950's & 60's at Brobury in Herefordshire. Following an appeal for her whereabouts in the Hereford Times in March 2018, her nearest living relative from nearby Hay came forward with 3 large scrapbooks containing over 300 pictures and reports covering her time there. These have now been scanned and added to the archive. Megan died in 2011 in Southampton but her legacy is now preserved and will live on.
Where will this fabulous breed take us next!
