NSA SCOTSHEEP 2020 POSTPONED UNTIL JUNE 2022

26th January 2021

Due to the continued uncertainties and restrictions caused by COVID-19, the National Sheep Association’s Scottish executive committee has taken the regrettable decision to postpone NSA Scotsheep, which was due to take place on Thursday, May 27, 2021.

Following a Zoom meeting with the NSA Scotsheep organising committee, the event has now been rescheduled for a further year and will take place on Wednesday, June 1, 2022 by kind permission of Robert and Hazel McNee, Over Finlarg, Tealing, Dundee.

Organisers of the event believe that restrictions on social distancing and mass gatherings will be in force for the considerable future and so have decided to focus their efforts on planning a rescheduled event for next summer.

Jennifer Craig, NSA Scotland chair, said: “We are really disappointed to have to postpone NSA Scotsheep until next June, as plans for the event were well advanced. With no signs of restrictions easing and cases still rising, our main priority is the health and wellbeing of our visitors, exhibitors and those involved in the running of the event.

“It was important to come to a firm decision sooner rather than later to avoid impacting Robert and Hazel’s farming calendar.

“Postponing NSA Scotsheep will have a severe impact on NSA Scotland financially however, through the continued support of our many sponsors and trade exhibitors, we hope to deliver a full-scale event for the sheep industry in Scotland and further afield.”
