NSA Sheep Worrying Fortnight #LeadOn
Date: 30th April 2021 - 13th May 2021
Join NSA for a fortnight of activity surrounding sheep worrying by dogs. With the devastating issue of sheep worrying by dogs continuing to affect sheep farmers and their flocks across the UK the National Sheep Association (NSA) is ready to #LeadOn the fight against sheep worrying by dogs.
NSA has been running its 2021 sheep worrying by dogs survey, which closed on 19th April 2021. The fortnight will launch with NSA presenting its survey findings, followed by a whole host of activity including webinars, workshops and new online case studies and content on the NSA website to help both sheep farmers in reducing the risk of attacks happening on farm and the general public in preventing their dogs from being involved in sheep worrying attacks.
Get involved by following NSA on Facebook and Twitter, and sharing your own experiences (good and bad) with #LeadOn. There will be plenty of content to share and interact with over the two weeks to get everyone talking about the importance of responsible dog ownership.
What's on? Alongside activity on social media every day of the fortnight, you can get involved with the Breakfast Club webinar and three other workshops all dedicated to sheep worrying!
