The annual sale organised each August by the ram sale committee of NSA South West Region is at Exeter Livestock Centre.
Go to the NSA Events page to find this year’s sale dates. Entry forms and catalogues are added to this page in the run-up the sale.
NSA ram sales are recognised throughout the industry as well-respected multi-breed sales offering rams that have all been individually inspected for health and quality before entering the sale ring. There are six sales throughout the year, including the NSA Wales & Border Main Ram Sale in September, believed to be the biggest in Europe. Only NSA members can sell at NSA ram sales; visit the NSA Membership page to find out more about the benefits of NSA membership and an application form to join.
