iSAGE project

iSAGE project

This is a project being undertaken by NSA to evaluate the UK sheep industry

The projuect is known as iSAGE - Innovation for Sheep & Goat Production in Europe (

In collaboration with other research partners including SRUC, AHDB, the National Sheep Association is undertaking a number of on farm sustainability assessments to evaluate the UK sheep industry as a whole.

The assessment involves an on farm visit, arranged in advance at a time convenient to the farm.

- There will be a series of farm related questions which take around 2-3h to complete.  The assessment looks at highlighting those areas where the business is doing really well and identifies areas which can potentially be improved upon.

- At the end of the assessment the researcher will explain the results to the farmer and provide them with their own personal copy to keep.  There are many other benefits to the farms, which are highlighted in the attached poster.

If you would be interested in taking part please contact Nicola Smith at NSA.  email:
