IT was all change at the top at the recent 31st Charollais Sheep AGM held via Zoom.
William McAllister steps down as chairman after completing his six years in the chair. Taking over is Mrs Sheila Malcomson, who has been Club Secretary for the past 27 years.
Rebecca McBratney has taken on the role of secretary whilst Ian Goudy replaces David Mawhinney as treasurer. New Vice Chairman is Norman McMordie with new committee members Harold McBratney, David Anderson and Wesley Cousins.
William thanked everyone for the support he had received during his term as chairman, in particular he thanked David for giving of his time as treasurer and Sheila for her many years of service as secretary. He wished all the incoming office bearers a successful term.
Reflecting on the past year, Charollais sale prices were upheld throughout the season with females in particular being in high demand. Online sales worked well with export sales continuing to flourish.
Breeders have missed the competition and the craic of the show season, but hopefully next year things will return to some sort of normality. In conclusion, William wished the club every success in the future.
Incoming Chairperson Sheila Malcomson thanked William for his hard work and dedication. She welcomed the new committee and hoped that they and the members would ensure that the club and breed continue to thrive.
