Salt Spring Sheep Breeders
The focus for sheep breeders on Salt Spring Island has been to investigate the possibility of getting an abattoir.
Since 2004 work has continued with other meat producers to find a solution to the problems caused by the change in the meat regulations that eventually took effect in 2007. The group doing this work is the Salt Spring Livestock Producers which includes poultry, beef and pork producers. Fundraising is being pursued to match a grant that will establish an on island abattoir for the livestock producers. Contact for this is Margaret Thomson 250 537 4669 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The sheep breeders have a google group email@example.com that is used for communication. Anyone with sheep or goats can have their name added and will then receive news about items of interest relating to sheep or goats. This can include events on Vancouver Island or sometimes animals for sale or wanted. The list owner and manager is Pat Donnelly 250 931-5179, firstname.lastname@example.org.
