NSA and RoSA
The Register of Sheep Advisers (RoSA) is a service through which experts working with sheep farmers can gain recognition – and the sheep farmers receiving advice from those experts can be assured of its quality.
NSA supports the concept of RoSA because farm advice looks set to become part of future farm support schemes and there is a risk to individual farmers and the wider industry if there is no register or CPD structure for people offering that advice. NSA does not support any steps to make farm advice compulsory, but does believe sheep producers should be able to check the quality of any advice they chose to access, and be assured that it comes with specific knowledge of sheep systems.
If you are a RoSA member, you can collect CPD points simply by being an NSA member too. Become an NSA member here.
