From Christchurch to Ashburton, and Banks Peninsula to the West Coast.

Members of the Mid Canterbury branch are spread north to south from Christchurch to Ashburton, east to west from Banks Peninsula to the West Coast.

Our Upcoming Events

There are no upcoming events at this time.

Our members range from full time farmers to those who keep a few sheep for a hobby, and people in the wool processing industry to handcrafters. Our branch is well represented in sheep and fleece competitions and our members are often championship winners. We are a diverse group of people with a shared interest in coloured sheep and wool.

Our monthly field days are theme based, anything from as weighty a topic as pasture management, to a relaxed fun day enjoying the views and the harbour of Banks Peninsula. Our branch benefits greatly from the experience and knowledge of some very experienced breeders who are always willing to share their enthusiasm and to offer advice.

Members from other branches are always welcome to our field days, and we frequently combine with neighbouring branches for activities. Anyone interested in the BCSBA is also very welcome. See more about our planned meetings for this year.

About the Association

This Association was founded in 1976. There are now twelve branches throughout New Zealand, and members range from small block owners to those with large commercial flocks. Some produce wool for use in their own handcrafts such as spinning, felting and weaving, or to sell to craftspeople. Others are involved in commercial production of natural coloured wool products, or breed for high quality sheepskins. Some do not own sheep, but have an interest in natural coloured wool.
