NSA members wanting to advertise on the list should go to www.nationalsheep.org.uk/lambing-list. Students and others seeking lambing experience will be able to view the available placements from November.

Sheep farmers interested in using the list who are not yet NSA members can sign up online today or find membership application information at www.nationalsheep.org.uk/membership or from NSA HQ on 01684 892661. 

Is your business Brexit ready?

The UK sheep sector is facing a time of unprecedented change. Due to the volumes of UK lamb exported overseas, mainly to the EU, the time new trade deals and market access will take to secure, and the reliance of the sector on support payments, any Brexit scenario will impact individual businesses.

In response to this, the National Sheep Association has launched a new business readiness toolkit to help sheep farmers think about any actions that might need to be taken to build the resilience of their enterprise.
