The Establishment of a Flock Book for Sheep
The Establishment of a Flock Book for Sheep.
Mr J. G. Wilson moved that this subject be discharged from the order paper. He would remind the Conference that they in the North Island took steps to form a Flock Book, but they found the rules did not meet with the satisfaction of the Southern breeders. However, the agricultural and pastoral associations took the matter up, and at a meeting in the South it was proposed to bring it before the Conference. A meeting was held on Monday of the Northern and Southern breeders, and he was glad to say all the difficulties were smoothed over, and they were able to draw up rules which had practically established a Flock Book for New Zealand. They had sent a copy of the rules to each delegate present, and they would be glad of any suggestions as to amending them.
Mr F. Bradey seconded the motion, and the order was discharged.
