NSA Delighted to Welcome New Association President

The National Sheep Association (NSA) is pleased to announce Lord Inglewood of Hutton in the Forest, Penrith, Cumbria, as the new NSA President.

Lord Inglewood takes over this significant position from His Grace The Duke of Montrose who handed over the reins at the recent NSA AGM in Ballymena, County Antrim.

With an active involvement as a member of the House of Lords as well as being a farmer and landowner in Cumbria with both upland and lowland farming interests, NSA feels Lord Inglewood is perfectly suited to the appointment. Among other commitments, he is also President of the Uplands Alliance and fulfills an influential role within the Livestock Auctioneers Association.

On his appointment as NSA President, Lord Inglewood says:
“At a moment when UK agriculture is under review as never before, I am delighted to support those in the sheep sector - an integral part of livestock farming at this crucial moment. I am looking forward to working closely with NSA in the near future.”

Speaking at the NSA AGM, NSA Chief Executive Phil Stocker spoke of the value this position brings to the association. He said: “The role of NSA President is an essential one for the organsation and its influence can have a significant bearing on the future for the sheep industry here in the UK.

“Our outgoing President, His Grace The Duke of Montrose held this position for six years and has been an incredible ambassador for NSA, opening many doors for us and supporting a good number of NSA events around the country. I would like to give a huge thank you to the Duke for all he has done, and at the same time welcome Lord Inglewood into this role. I look forward to involving him in NSA’s work during this crucial time.”
