Celebrate National Sheep Month with us this February! Also called National Lamb Lovers Month, this is a time to celebrate all the great things about sheep and lamb! In addition to our St. Croix Genetics: Discoveries & Possibilities webinar, we will celebrate with two activities for our members.
Discounted In-coming Transfers for SCHSIA Sheep in February
Our organization is dedicated to preserving the St. Croix breed. Above all, we must ensure genetic diversity. We strongly encourage our members to maintain registrations of their SCHSB-registered animals. However, we also want to make it easy for members to transfer in SCHSIA animals. Throughout February 2024, members can transfer in SCHSIA-registered sheep for $5.00. Just mention this promotion when you work with our registrar so that we can invoice you correctly.
National Sheep Month Photo Contest
We encourage member involvement with our organization and would love to feature photos of your flock on our website and social media. To participate, submit your winter or Valentine’s Day themed photos of your St. Croix hair sheep by February 29. The member(s) who submit winning photos will earn one year’s membership OR three free registrations. Photos must be submitted as jpeg or png files, taken in landscape format, and must feature SCHSB registered St. Croix. Upon submission, full usage rights are granted to SCHSB.
Other Ways to Celebrate
Be sure to follow The Livestock Conservancy and the American Lamb Board on Facebook. They post a variety of sheep-related information throughout the month. The Livestock Conservancy often features real sheep producers throughout the month. The American Lamb Board posts lots of delicious lamb recipes that you can use at home and share with your customers.
