Over these last five years we have seen a tremendous increase in the numbers of Scotch Mules coming on to the market. 100,000 estimated sold in 1986. Not only has the number increased but the quality has improved beyond all expectations to make one feel it worthwhile attracting buyers from the south to all our centres. Too often in the past we have taken our sheep to market and hoped that the buyers would be there. Now we will be helping ourselves by promotion.
The foundation has been laid and the strength of the Association will come from those who have faith in the product we are promoting.
