The groups meet 8-10 a year and members consist of farmers, contract shepherds, vets and employees. Meetings tend to take place during the autumn and winter when it is easier for members to get away from their flocks. Visits are either on farm and involve a farm walk and/or practical demonstrations or guest speakers are invited to talk to the group on topics such as health, nutrition and opportunities.
