A reunion for Romney stud breeders and stud stock agents will be held in Gore in August.

It was initially the idea of Ken Bain, now retired at Millers Flat, who thought a get-together should be held.

Then he talked to retired agent Murray Sheppard, who suggested stud stock agents should be included.

There had been a lot of interest in the reunion and the organisers were now trying to reach as many people as possible.

The reunion, based at the Croydon Lodge in Gore, will be held on August 7 and 8. It will include a bus tour visiting the Grant brothers' large-scale commercial Romney operation, Hamish and Miriam MacKay's Braebank stud and Blair and Sally Robertson's Merrydowns stud.

A dinner will be held featuring guest speaker Sir Brian Lochore, himself a Romney breeder.

Mr Sheppard said a great group of people had been involved with the breed and it would be a ''pretty special'' event.
