    Applicants Wanted: Jim Cluff Memorial Starter Flock Award

    May 19, 2020

    Here's a great opportunity from the Ohio Cheviot Breeders Association (OCBA). They are seeking applicants for the Jim Cluff Memorial Starter Flock Award. The purpose of the award is to introduce the youth to the enjoyment of raising and owning a purebred Cheviot sheep, as well as encouraging the growth of new Cheviot breeders in Ohio.

    The OCBA started the contest in 1994 to award a Cheviot starter flock to an Ohio youth up to 17 years of age.
