CLYDESDALE BANK CONFIRMED AS MAJOR SPONSOR OF NSA SCOTSHEEP 2020

27th January 2020

Clydesdale Bank has been named as the major sponsor of Scotland’s national sheep event NSA Scotsheep 2020.

The biennial event, organised by NSA Scotland, will be take place on Wednesday June 3, at Over Finlarg, Tealing, Dundee, by kind permission of Robert and Hazel McNee.

“Clydesdale Bank is delighted to be sponsoring the NSA Scotsheep event at Over Finlarg, which is a great venue and provides a real focus for the sheep sector at this important time of change post-Brexit,” said Brian Richardson, UK head of agriculture for Clydesdale Bank.

“Our team looks forward to meeting producers at the event and we are pleased to be main sponsors.”

Previous NSA Scotsheep events held across Scotland have attracted thousands of livestock producers from all over the UK and this year visitors will have the chance to see first-hand how the McNees have developed both the farm and their business since moving to the 740-acre unit nine years ago.

“Over Finlarg is an ideal unit for hosting such a prestigious event,” said event chairman Willy Millar, who runs a beef and sheep enterprise at Huntingfaulds, Tealing. 

“Robert and Hazel McNee are well-known for breeding top-quality livestock and there will be something of interest for everyone on the day. Field space for trade stands is currently filling up fast so we would encourage those interested to come forward.”
