Please get involved in this discussion what ever your views are.vv
As someone who is looking to buy some in lamb Leicesters next month the first place I would look is Mulebook. It's a great market place for vendors to publicise their sheep and offer some background information on the breeding etc.... I think Mulebook has a niche and has created a friendly forum for likeminded farmers to socialise and promote the breeds (both Blue Faced Leicesters and Mules) and it highlights everything that's good about sheep farming!
Additionally, social media is obviously the future and taking Mulebook off line would in my opinion be a step back after pioneering such a user friendly, informative website. I just thought I'd share my views as someone looking in and hope the website can find a way to promote sheep breeders hard work and pride in the future.
