Welcome

Welcome everyone to our new web site. This is your resource so hopefully over the next few years it will evolve and grow. We need all of you to contribute to do this so let’s have your stories photos and results.

2019 is a year of moving forward for our breed. We welcome Becky Hurd as our new Promotion and Field Officer who will over the next few months gradually take over from Jane. The emphasis is on pushing the breed forward - we have a great product for the modern market and need to continue to punch above our weight.

This year we are doing many more NSA sheep events with stands at Welsh Sheep, North Sheep, Highland Sheep, NI Sheep and South West Sheep so we can promote our breed throughout the country. Come along and meet Becky at one of these events. Hopefully this autumn there will be some news about a new Millennium Bleu project. Becky will increase our presence on all social media platforms, but we cannot do this without our members so keep the news coming about how the Bleu and Millennium Bleu are helping your sheep businesses.

The show ring is just one of many shop windows for our sheep so let’s also build on commercial success at the grassroots level. I wish everyone success for 2019.
