Description: August 17th & 18th, 2012
Rivers, Manitoba

This year’s sale will be all about top quality sheep! Sheep will arrive on Friday and the show will be Saturday morning followed by the sale in the afternoon.

The event will be open to both purebred rams/ewes and commercial ewes. We will once again have market lamb and jackpot ewe lamb classes. New for this year – hair sheep classes for both Dorper and Katadhin breeders.

Also new for this year is the opportunity to show your sheep with no obligation
to sell, provided you enter at least one animal in the sale. This is a great
opportunity for breeders who want to promote their sheep, but are limited on
the animals they can commit to the sale. Also, if you are a spring breeder, you
can take this opportunity to showcase your young stock and drum up interest for
sale at a future date.

We want to see a large number of top quality sheep at this year’s sale and we
need your help to do it. Focusing on maternal genetics? Manitoba is in need of
top quality female lines! No experience showing? No problem! This event is all
about the promotion of sheep, not the show ring. So, as you plan your 2012
marketing strategy, make sure to keep the annual MSA Show and Sale in mind.
