NSA Sheep 2014 to focus on the industry’s future
“This year we have chosen to focus on developing and securing a future for our industry,” explains Phil Stocker, NSA Chief Executive.
“We will be promoting our NSA Next Generation project and our Young Shepherd of the Year competition as a way to show the opportunities the sheep industry can offer to young people as a source of vibrant career opportunities,” he says.
“NSA intends to build on the success of previous Sheep Events and our regional events to encourage and showcase a new generation of innovators, ideas and products in all areas of the sheep industry.”
At the 2012 NSA Sheep event visitor numbers were in excess of 11,000, with 250 exhibitors. This year’s event is set to be bigger and better, and is a must-visit for all involved in the sheep industry.
Free technical seminars will be held throughout the day, where industry experts will inform the seminar audiences of the most up-to-date information and news on the hot topics being covered.
NSA Sheep 2014 is set to continue as the leading event for the sheep industry, adds Phil. “The NSA has a commitment to covering the issues vital to securing a future for the sheep industry for those involved now, as well as preparing the way for the next generation.”
