Jacob Sheep Society Sales

Note on entries for the Society sales.

Please be sure to get your sale animals registered in good time.

Most of the auctioneers now use part of the Grassroots PedeWeb system to create their catalogue pages.  This allows them to select the animals to be included in the catalogue, but it means they cannot accept entries until the animals are registered.

If you are intending to get animals tested for Tay Sachs prior to the sales please do contact the registry and apply for the test kits as soon as possible.  The samples have to be collected by a vet and have to be returned to the Grassroots office.  It can take several weeks for the results to come back.  You can log lambs as Birth Notified (free of charge) and then apply to Tay Sach test.  These lambs can be registered subsequently for the normal registration fee. Applications to birth notify, to register and to apply for Tay Sachs kits can be made via manage your flock in the Pedeweb on line registry, or by email to    or by paper form which can be downloaded from the web site.

Alternatively you can ask for a paper application form by emailing 

Thank you,  The team at Grassroots.
