THE Beltex Sheep Society has appointed Cumbria-based Ped-igree Livestock Services, which is run by Andy Ryder, to take on the complete administrative roles for the breed society.
Society Chairman Kevin Buckle
said the current and long serving society Secretary Barbara Hud-
dleston has decided to reduce her workload and in the interest of a seamless transition for members it made sense to appoint the Ainstable, Carlisle, based company to take over running of the society.
Mr Buckle added: “Pedigree Livestock Services, which is run by Andy Ryder, was formed in 2019 and already has seven other cattle and horse breed societies as well as Penrith Show in its portfolio.
“The business is experienced in dealing with all aspects of running an efficient service for pedigree breeders and it also means the current Beltex Society staff working from our offices at Crooklands, Kendal, will be able to move over.”
Mr Ryder said registrations would continue via Grassroots Systems and everything cur-
rently handled by the Crooklands office would be taken in hand.
Beltex members should find the change completely seamless and apart from revised contact details, of which they will be notified, it will be ‘business as normal’.
