NSA Wales & Border Ram Sales
1st April 2022
Buy and sell the best at the NSA Wales & Border Ram Sales
Plans for this year’s breeding season are well underway and the first of the NSA ram sales, the NSA Wales & Border Early Ram Sale, will take place on Monday 1st August at the Royal Welsh Showground. The NSA Wales & Border Main Ram Sale is expected to have at least 4,000 rams forward and will take place on Monday 19th September, also at the Builth Wells venue.
The Early Sale is the first of this year’s NSA six multi-breed ram sales offering quality, inspected stock in multiple locations across Wales and England. New for this year is a sale organised by NSA South East Region that will take place at Thame in September.
NSA multi-breed sales ram sales are respected throughout the industry, offering top quality rams. Each ram sale brings together a large number of breeds and vendors, so providing purchasers with access to sheep reared from different UK environments to fit all market specifications.
Some stock is sold at NSA Ram Sales as part of official breed society sales. More than 7,000 sheep are expected to be sold through NSA ram sales this year, demonstrating their importance to the UK sheep sector.
NSA Chief Executive Phil Stocker says: “NSA is proud to have built a good reputation for offering reliable breeding stock through its network of NSA Ram Sales.
“The purchasing of stock ahead of the breeding season each year is an incredibly important task, it is therefore essential that NSA continues to organise sales to assist with this, providing choice, value and quality for the UK’s sheep farmers.”
