‘Securing the future of the UK sheep industry’ is the overarching focus for the National Sheep Association’s leading technical event. NSA Sheep 2014 is to be held on Wednesday 30 July 2014 at The Three Counties Showground, Malvern, Worcestershire.

“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.

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.
