Sub-association for sheep, goats and other small ruminants
Hello Veetelers, Veetelerinnen and other interested people,
The Sheep and Goats StudyClub (SGSC) is, as the name implies, interested in sheep and goats. But we are also interested in other small ruminants. Like other sub-assosiations of study assosiation "De Veetelers", the SGSC organises interesting and fun excursions.
Our aim is to introduce students to this sector, which is quite unknown. We do so through excursions (at home and abroad) to several companies and farms as well as discussion evenings and courses (like lambing courses, sheep shearing etc.). An example of a recent excursion is going to a feed producer, dairy goat farm and an alpaca breeder. Furthermore we organize a Binex (inside the Netherlands) or a Buitex (outside of the Netherlands), which is a multiple day long excursion to a multiple diverse companies. In college year 2017-2018 we went on BINEX to Noord-Holland and Texel and in college year 2018-2019 we visited the Achterhoek. We are now planning a Buitex and plan to visit the Touraine Region in May 2020!
So if you want to broaden your horizons and learn new things, go on a SGSC excursion or become a member! Would you like to organize these excursions, do not hesitate and email us. We are always looking for new board members!
With bleating greets,
The SGSC board,
Alyssa van der Linden (chairwoman) Joas Bos (secretary)
Linsy Roest (treasurer)
