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.
