New NSA president joins body at ‘crucial time’

The National Sheep Association (NSA) has announced that Lord Inglewood of Hutton in the Forest, Penrith, Cumbria will be its new president.

Inglewood is also president of the Uplands Alliance and has an active role within the Livestock Auctioneers Association. He will replace His Grace the Duke of Montrose in the position of NSA president.

“At a moment when UK agriculture is under review as never before, I am delighted to support those in the sheep sector – an integral part of livestock farming at this crucial moment. I am looking forward to working closely with NSA in the near future,” he said.

The new president already has an involvement in the House of Lords, alongside being a farmer and landowner in Cumbria, with interests in upland and lowland farming.

NSA chief executive Phil Stocker commented: “The role of the NSA president is an essential one in the organisation and its influence can have a significant bearing on the future for the sheep industry here in the UK.

“Our outgoing president, His Grace the Duke of Montrose, held this position for six years and has been an incredible ambassador for NSA, opening many doors for us and supporting a good number of NSA events around the country.

“I would like to give a huge thank you to the Duke for all he has done, but at the same time welcome Lord Inglewood into this role. I look forward to involving him in the NSA’s work during this crucial time.”
