It would help greatly with the preparation of the catalogue if members entering rams to be sold as 'eligible for registration' or ewe lambs could submit notifications for these prior to the closing date using Pedeweb, accessed via the online Flock Book on the Oxford Down website: https://www.oxforddownsheep.org.uk/online-flock-book
