NSA Sheep Northern Ireland
- Event Info
Plans are now well advanced for NSA Sheep Northern Ireland 2017, to be held on Monday 3rd July at Ballymena Livestock Mart.
The event will see a number of successful attractions return including an open fleece competition, supported by BWMB, the popular sale of working sheepdogs and puppies and the Next Generation Shepherd of the Year competition, which is certainly an element not to be missed by shepherds aged 26 and under - find more information in the Highlights section.
Visitors will have the opportunity to see and compare a wide range, suitable for both hill and lowland production, while an excellent entry of trade stands will bring together examples of just about everything the sheep farmer could need - find more information in the Exhibitors section.
Make your way over to the calf ring, and you will find topical seminars taking place through the day on sheep health, soil management, grass utilization and unknowns associated with leaving the EU. Irish Farmers Journal Editor Justin McCarthy is one of the experts attending. And if it is hands-on sessions you are after, you are in luck since an extension to the market since NSA Sheep NI 2015 will hopefully allow for more of these during the day - find more information in the Seminars section.
All in all, a day not to be missed by sheep farmers, their families, or anyone interested in sheep farming.
This biennial event provides a platform for the industry representatives, breed societies, breeders and companies to assemble and display their products at a single devoted venue. Extra space this year will allow more stand space for individual breeders.
