NSA Breakfast Clubs return to inform and update in 2022

5th January 2022

Following on from its success in 2021, the National Sheep Association (NSA)’s series of Breakfast Club webinars is returning for the new year with speakers looking forward to sharing useful and up to date information with sheep farmers and other interested parties throughout 2022.
Providing sponsorship to assist in the delivery of the Breakfast Club sessions this year is long-standing NSA supporter Roythornes. Roythornes is one of the top agricultural law practices in the country, providing practical and targeted advice on wide-ranging agricultural policy and legislative changes. Roythornes also provide free legal advice* to NSA members as one of the benefits of NSA membership subscription.
Mark Dodds, Marketing Manager at Roythornes, comments: “We’re delighted to be sponsoring the NSA Breakfast Club webinars as they are clearly valued by members of the NSA and provide an invaluable source of information in a sometimes-complicated world.  As a firm, we have always had a very close affinity with farming and agriculture, and the sponsorship enables us to support those who are working hard in challenging times.” 
The first NSA Breakfast Club of the year will take place next Wednesday 12th January asking
‘Who will eat UK sheep meat in 2022?’ The session, a review of current overseas work to promote UK sheep meat products, will feature speakers Dr Phil Hadley, AHDB International Market Development Director and David Swales, AHDB Head of Strategic Insight, with Alistair Sneddon, NSA English Committee member and Senior Partner at Bagshaws, chairing the discussion.
Having taken place at 8.30am on the first Wednesday of every month last year the first Breakfast Clubs of 2022 will also follow this pattern but will take a break during the peak of lambing time in the UK and will also accommodate the return of popular NSA events this summer including NSA Scot Sheep event on Wednesday 1st June, Dundee and the flagship event of the Association, NSA Sheep Event on Wednesday 27th July, Worcestershire. The second session of the year will take place on Wednesday 2nd February and will discuss how the industry can serve the international demand for UK sheep genetics.
