A concise and lavishly illustrated book on Lincolnshire’s distinctive breeds of farm animals was launched at Heckington Show on 29 July.
Written by Catherine Wilson, OBE, former SLHA President, and published by the Society, the book was commissioned by the Heckington and District Agricultural Society.
The Lord Lieutenant of Lincolnshire (Tony Worth) and SLHA Chairman (Stewart Squires) congratulated Catherine and commended the book.
Sue and Alan Stennett, both heavily involved in the protection and promotion of rare breeds, had provided information and photographs for the book.
It was appropriate that Alan, the veteran broadcaster, was compere for the public launch of the book in Heckington’s main show ring accompanied by prize-winning animals: a Lincoln Red cow, a Lincoln Longwool sheep and a Lincolnshire Buff cockerel.
