Could NSA make you a lucky winner of a Ritchie sheep race in 2020?

NSA is excited to team up with leading agricultural handling and feeding equipment manufacturer, Ritchie for 2020's membership prize giveaway! 

By signing up to join NSA this year you will automatically be entered into a prize draw for a chance to win one of four Ritchie portable sheep races. Existing members are also in with a chance of winning by recommending a friend, family member or neighbour to sign up too!

Each of the four prizes is worth more than £1000 and would be a great prize to assist in the movement and handling of sheep on farm.

And of course, your membership subscription will support NSA's work to provide a voice for the UK sheep sector and will give you access to a wide range of benefits.

NSA update on NSA Sheep Event 2020

Following the latest updates on the UK’s situation with regards to the Coronavirus outbreak the National Sheep Association (NSA) would like to update all interested parties on this summer’s NSA Sheep Event.

“The NSA would like to update you on NSA Sheep Event 2020. Currently, the association is planning to go ahead and run the event on Tuesday 28th July at the Three Counties Showground, Worcestershire. All at NSA are closely monitoring official guidance on Coronavirus COVID-19 and reviewing the situation daily. We are still accepting bookings for the event and hope the wider sheep industry will continue to support us during this period of uncertainty. If we need to postpone or cancel the event the decision will be based on reducing the risk to our members, staff, supporters and business operations. Until that time we will be putting in our best efforts to run a busy, buoyant and lively Sheep Event in July in celebration of the UK Sheep Industry. We hope we can all come together as an industry to support one another in these unprecedented times.”
