Wool Board Members re-appointed
Jan '10
Three members of the British Wool Marketing Board have been re-appointed to the Board for a further three-year period starting on April 1st 2010.

They are Gethin Havard (Welsh Southern), Brian Dallyn (English South Western) and Ruairidh Mackenzie (Scottish Northern).

Gethin Havard, currently Vice-Chairman of the British Wool Marketing Board, farms two holdings near Sennybridge in mid-Wales with brothers Huw and Howell. The family business is based on 900 acres and carries around 2000 breeding ewes. Gethin has been actively involved in achieving premium markets for Brecknock Hill Cheviot “branded” prime lamb.

Brian Dallyn has been involved with the Board's activities for many years and served on its south-west regional committee for 11 years. He runs pedigree flocks of Blue-faced Leicester and Exmoor Horn sheep and is a past regional chairman of the National Sheep Association.

Ruairidh Mackenzie, a well known figure in the north of Scotland farming scene, is involved in an upland family farm near Inverness running a North Country Cheviot and suckler cows.

BWMB's Chairman, Frank Langrish said he welcomed the re appointment of the three Board Members. “Their continued work with the British Wool Marketing Board will provide a valuable continuity of input from three experienced sheep producers at a time when the board is making important decisions concerning the future marketing and promotion of British wool.”
