NSA Sheep 2016 adds value to the industry

British sheep producers are encouraged to take advantage of the National Sheep Association’s (NSA) Sheep 2016 free event, with a theme of ‘adding value to the sheep industry’. 

“NSA is keen to add value to membership packages, and one way we’ve done this is by offering free entry to NSA Sheep 2016,” said Phil Stocker, NSA chief executive.

“We hope everyone involved in the sheep sector will take advantage of this – and also take up the theme of adding value to their businesses. The sheep sector is not exempt from increasing global volatility, so it is more important than ever to ensure your system is working to achieve the best possible output. This year’s event will focus on how the sheep industry can add value to help protect against unstable prices.”

The event, taking place on Wednesday 27 July 2016 at the Three Counties Showground in Malvern, Worcestershire, is expected to attract more than 250 trade stands to deliver the latest information and advice to the industry. Free technical seminars, demonstrations and workshops are scheduled throughout the day.

Prior to the event, a series of farm tours will be held. “The farm tour day on Tuesday 26 July is a fantastic addition,” continued Stocker. “It gives people the opportunity to go on farms and see how other producers are adding value to their sheep enterprises at a practical level.”
