Huge early morning queues at Univet

Huge early morning queues formed at the Univet manufacturing facility this morning as news broke around the Ovis Aries community in Tullyvin, Co. Cavan, Ireland that Univet were working on fresh batches of the ever popular Growvite Sheep.

It was shear bedlam in the usually quiet village of Tullyvin as the excited Growvite fans flocked to the Co. Cavan facility in the hope of being the first to get their chops around some of the much sought after feeding stuff.

It was reported that the excited Growvite fans, many of whom appeared well shaven, were generally good natured and convivial.

Avoid the queues and buy your Growvite Sheep from your local provider today.
