Sheep Breeders Round Table – Tickets on sale now

The Sheep Breeders Round Table is back as a face-to-face event to be held from Friday 11 - Sunday 13 November 2022 at the Radisson Blu Hotel at East Midlands Airport.

Proudly supported by AHDB, this year’s theme will be ‘UK sheep genetics delivering for the nation’ with sessions including the following topics:

  • Systems and tools to drive the development of genetics for UK sheep farms
  • The characteristics needed in sheep for the future
  • Satisfying the consumer – factors influencing sheep meat quality
  • Opportunities for the sheep sector – market place, genetics and support schemes
  • Increasing the impact of existing breeding schemes
  • Responsibility of breeding for better health
  • What will the sheep industry look like in 10 years?


On the Saturday afternoon the conference will debate the motion ‘The use of advanced breeding techniques has positively benefited the British sheep industry over the past 35 years’.

The event is a platform for showcasing how we can become more resilient and be amongst the best sheep producers in the world. If you have an interest in sheep production, this event attracts a large audience of progressive farmers and breeders, combined with academic researchers and specialist vets sharing their thoughts and ideas.

SBRT welcome sponsorship for the Friday session from CIEL, the Centre for Innovation Excellence in Livestock. This event is supported with collaboration from all UK levy boards with the National Sheep Association and further details are available through their websites.
