NSA EVENT MAKES WELCOME RETURN

 NSA EVENT MAKES WELCOME RETURN

The flagship event of the National Sheep Association (NSA), NSA Sheep Event, will return to the Three Counties Showground, Worcestershire on Wednesday 27th July, with discounted tickets now available to purchase online and free entry for NSA Members.

The event offers sheep farmers the opportunity to meet with commercial companies, breed societies and industry groups as well as finding out about the latest innovations and products available to them. Sheep farmers can also strengthen their technical knowledge by attending seminars and workshops that are run throughout the day with some leading names from the UK sheep industry.

New for 2022, NSA is excited to launch a competition giving attendees a chance to share their innovative on-farm ideas in the NSA Inventions competition. Open to both commercial companies and farmer visitors to the event, the competition, which is sponsored by Rappa, has two classes both offering the chance to win. Trade exhibitors can enter new products or equipment launched in the past four years whilst day visitors can bring along a piece of equipment or an explanation of a tip (that has cost no more than £200 to design/ produce) to be displayed at the event for a chance to win prize money of up to £125.

The Tornado Fencing competition will also take place at NSA Sheep Event 2022. The contest, open to teams of professional fencing contractors, gives visitors the opportunity to see the teams pit their skills against their fellow competitors and demonstrate the advantage of good quality fence erection on farm.

Another regular competition found at the event is the Fleece competition. NSA will be joined by an expert grader from British Wool to judge fleeces brought along by visitors on the day of the event hoping to win prize money for the quality of the wool they add to the display.

Once again the NSA Sheep Event will play host to the finals of the NSA Next Generation Shepherd of the Year competition, sponsored by the Texel Sheep Society.

NSA Sheep 2022 is supported by major sponsors Agri-Lloyd, AHDB Beef & Lamb, Barclays, Elanco, MSD Animal Health and Shearwell.
