Ashby RT had a great night lin March down on the farm, hosted by honouree member, Tim Livesey.

Tim had tablers managing the welfare of the sheep and lambs in the middle of lambing season. This included docking the tails, castrating, inoculating, cleaning hoofs, and cleaning pens out. Inevitably they then had to eat fish and chips with their fingers without washing our hands first! Oh yes – drinking Stella too.

A terrific evening, sadly without the placentas!

Editors note: no animals were harmed in the making of this website.
