NOMINATIONS SOUGHT FOR 2020 NSA SCOTLAND SILVER SALVER AWARD

4th March 2020

National Sheep Association (NSA) Scotland committee are currently seeking nominations for the 2020 recipient of one of the sheep industry’s most prestigious accolades – The Silver Salver. This award is presented annually at ScotSheep or HighlandSheep events to an individual or organisation for outstanding contribution to the sheep industry.

Jen Craig (NSA Scotland Chairman) comments: “This award demonstrates the appreciation NSA Scotland has for its hard-working members and the exceptional people who make up our sheep farming sector.  This is a small step towards thanking those who have had lifetime commitments to further advance the Scottish sheep industry who may not have had the recognition they deserve.”

Past winners include Jimmy Warnock (Sandilands), Mamie Paterson (Upper Auchenlay), BBC This Farming Life production team and Joyce Campbell (Armadale) to name a few.

2019 winner Colin MacGregor, a former Scottish shearing champion, was selected for his significant contribution to the sheep industry. Mr MacGregor, who worked as the shearing manager for British Wool for 20 years, was described as an ambassador for the industry and someone who performed a great role as both a mentor and trainer.

If you are a member of the NSA and wish to nominate a worthy recipient please contact Scottish Region Coordinator Grace Reid by mobile 07787142858 or by email [email protected]
