NSA Sheep 2008, the UK industry’s biennial business to business event, will be held at the Three Counties Show Ground, Malvern on Wednesday 30 July and officially opened by shadow spokesperson for agriculture and rural affairs, Jim Paice MP.
Staged by the National Sheep Association and co-organiser, the Three Counties Agricultural Society, the event has attracted over 200 exhibitors, including 52 sheep breed societies, and once again it is expecting a crowd of more than 12,000 sheep farmers. NSA will also be welcoming overseas visitors keen do business; they represent more than 10 countries and will be traveling from as a far a field as Romania and Russia.
NSA chief executive, Peter Morris comments: “We are delighted that Jim Paice MP has taken up our invitation to officially open NSA Sheep 2008. We are looking forward to the opportunity of hearing his thoughts on the industry, how a change of government would be of benefit to sheep farmers and how we can work together to face the numerous challenges both immediate and longer term.”
He adds: “The event is offering the most comprehensive programmes of activities ever, each of which has been carefully designed to provide every member of the industry with opportunities for business reflection and more informed decision making. Taking a day out to visit NSA Sheep 2008 will be time well invested for all farmers, their partners and their shepherds.”
