Sub-association for sheep, goats and other small ruminants

Members: ±75

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 a lambing course, 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. For this academic year (2020-2021), we are now planning a Binex to Drenthe and/or Friesland as well as many cool excursions!

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,
