The NSA event will feature discussions and seminars on the issues facing the sheep industry in 2024.

The NSA Breakfast Club will take place on Tuesday 30th July at the Three Counties Showground in Malvern, Worcestershire, featuring seminars discussing the issues facing British sheep farmers.

With the event occurring after the general election, NSA said representatives from the main political parties have committed to attending NSA Sheep 2024, stating that they are "prepared to take part in NSA Breakfast Club in the event of them winning the election".

NSA chief executive Phil Stocker said: "NSA is looking forward to welcoming key political influencers and Government decision makers to NSA Sheep 2024 this July and in typical NSA style, we will not shy away from ensuring the issues affecting the sector are top of the list of discussion topics."

NSA will also launch its new Sustainability Report titled 'Sheep; Planetary problem or sustainability saviour'.

Stocker continued: "I'd encourage anyone with an interest in the future of the sector to join us to ask their questions at NSA Sheep Event. NSA is proud to announce its line up of seminars and speakers and believe it offers an interesting opportunity for discussion covering many areas of our sector, whether that be changes to farming policy, external threats to the industry, or opportunities for the future. We look forward with anticipation to the event and in particular the messages coming out of these topical seminars."

The event will be livestreamed on NSA's social platforms for those unable to join in person.
