Sheep Breeders Round Table 2021
With Covid-19 restrictions still impacting on face-to-face events, NSA along with the rest of the SBRT Organising Committee, hosted a free-to-attend, week-long event. The online format meant the biennial Sheep Breeders Roundtable (SBRT) was more accessible in 2021 than ever before.
NSA was an active part of the organising committee, bringing together six excellent webinars over the five-day period from Monday 15th November 2021. NSA, Signet and the four UK levy bodies each hosted a session with speakers including a variety of industry experts, sheep breeders and international guests. The online conference provided the foundations for the event returning to its face-to-face format in November 2022.
