“There can’t be many industries where you could go to a show, an industry event and/or a strategic business open day almost every day of the week but that is certainly the case in agriculture and this summer has been no exception with the highlight for many we hope being an NSA event.
Looking forward we have a brand-new major event, the NSA Sheep Farmers’ Conference, taking place near Birmingham on Wednesday 25th October – not to be missed. It’s to be a biennial event running concurrently with the national NSA Sheep Event at Malvern.
This inaugural conference will focus on sheep health and has a programme which should appeal to any one keen to increase their productivity and reduce their carbon footprint through optimising health and getting on top of parasites and disease. Places are limited and its first come first served, so if you want to be there you know what you need to do.
Sheep health is rightly getting a lot of attention. I still believe it’s probably the most important thing we can improve to raise our game, although underpinned by good nutrition and genetics and requiring some record keeping if it is to be most effective.”
Phil Stocker, NSA Chief Executive
