Hoax text message doing the rounds
We are aware of a text message going around in support of #nolambweek that claims to be from the National Sheep Association. This message has NOT come from NSA and we have not endorsed this action. NSA appreciates the huge frustration among producers at this time of unacceptably low lamb prices, but believes the way forward is communication with the retailers who are not supporting UK product.
