Nominations are now open for the NSA George Hedley Memorial Award for outstanding contribution to the UK sheep industry.
Following a change to the rules last year, in addition to NSA regions, breed societies and agricultural organisations making nominations, any individual NSA member can make a nomination to the selection panel (as long as another member acts as a seconder).
NSA regions are also in the process of making nominations for NSA Bob Payne Memorial Award for unsung NSA Hero, an award specially for NSA staff, officeholders and supporters. If a name springs to mind for this award, get in touch with your NSA regional manager. The deadline for both award nominations is Saturday 30th September. Details of both awards can be found at www.nationalsheep.org.uk/about.
