NSA and British Wool team up for exciting ‘auction mart roadshow’
As the major sheep sale season gets into full swing the National Sheep Association (NSA) and British Wool are looking forward to meeting sheep farmers at a number of auction markets over the coming months.
Taking part in the roadshow on behalf of NSA Activities and Campaigns Officer Chris Adamson comments: "We're looking forward to meeting many sheep farmers in the coming months and helping them understand how vital NSA is and that there is no more vital time to join our or organisation.
“As well as providing a valuable trading outlet for farmers’, auction markets are also an important part of the social fabric of farming communities and a natural meeting point for farmers. We're committed to working with auction markets wherever possible and support the vital role they play in the livestock sector.”
NSA is pleased to be teaming up with British Wool for this event hoping to help unify different parts of the industry and consolidate the similarities between an auction mart, and British Wool’s auctioning system.
British Wool Producer Marketing Manager, Gareth Jones says: “We are delighted to be working with the NSA to travel around the UK, meeting sheep farmers and helping them understand how British Wool are working to maximize the value of their wool clip.”
