The NSA Wales and Borders Ram Sale is to return to its traditional one day format and will take place on Monday, 21 September. The organisers have worked hard to respond to requests from buyers and vendors.
Chairman George Hughes said he was extremely grateful to the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society and to Brightwells for their co-operation. Brightwells traditionally holds the Fayre Oaks sale the following weekend.
George Hughes said: "We are delighted that the RWAS Board and Brightwells recognise how important it is to the sheep producers of the UK to hold the main sale on one day.
"We are very conscious that staging the main sale over two days as we have had to do in the recent past has created difficulties for many of our supporters. We are grateful to them for that continuing support but felt that we had to make every effort to return to the one day."
Mr Hughes added that the one-day format would be held in the permanent buildings and with the use of additional marquees. It would require some serious planning, particularly with regard to ensuring that traffic runs smoothly.
