NSA Lambing List 2017/18 open for business!
NSA’s Lambing List for 2017/8 is now open for business, with the intention of matchmaking farmers who need assistance at lambing time with agricultural and veterinary students required to undertake a lambing placement as part of their studies.
NSA members wanting to advertise on the list should go to www.nationalsheep.org.uk/lambing-list. Once a good number of farmers have placed their adverts, students will be invited to start applying via the work experience areas at www.nsanextgeneration.org.uk.
Sheep farmers interested in using the list who are not yet NSA members can find membership application information at www.nationalsheep.org.uk/membership or from NSA HQ on 01684 892661.
