Welcome to Edingale Jacobs. From a small family farm in the Lancashire Pennines via Edingale in the Midlands and now to the Scottish Borders. Our farming experience goes back three generations.
As well as experience gained with livestock on the family farm, also while working for Swinfen Farms, Lichfield and as a stockman for ICI Teesside Farms in Guisborough, Cleveland, my formal qualification in Agriculture is a Bachelor of Science degree from Harper Adams University College, Newport and latterly a Masters degree in Business Administration from the Open University.
In 2004, I was invited to join the Judges Panel and have since officiated at local and County shows in Scotland, England and Ireland including Moffat, Newcastleton, Penrith, Haddington, Staffordshire County, Wensleydale, Angus, Tullamore, Fife and Cumberland. I was also a co-judge in 2008 for the South West Regional Flock Competition and the Welsh Region in 2009.
The Jacob Sheep Society has a breed standard developed to maintain and improve the characteristics of the breed. I stick rigidly to the breed standard, paying particular attention to size, confirmation and stature.
