Trevor Kelland Memorial Bursary 2015
This bursary is offered each year to Bridgwater college students in order to encourage the study of specific performance attributes of the Llanwenog.
For 2015, the fund has been split (£75ea.) between two 2nd year Level 3 students.
Hannah Heriot, is going to compare a matched group of 10 in-lamb Llanwenogs expecting twins with a similar group of Texel cross ewes. She will be comparing ease of lambing, mothering ability, lamb losses/mortality & lamb growth rates during the first month.
Charlotte Male, will compare a group of Llanwenogs (20-30 expecting representative numbers of twins & singles) with a similar group of Texel crosses. She will monitor lamb losses from scanning to lambing, at lambing (live/dead) & up to two months of age. She will also compare lamb growth rates at one & two months old.
