NSA South West Region Ram Sale

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.

Did you know?

Every animal is inspected before sale for testicles, teeth and general health. This is done by NSA-approved inspectors, often with support from a vet.

Sheep with performance recording records are available and clearly marked in catalogues.

All stock is sold under auctioneers’ conditions of sale with extra support from NSA if needed.

Different breeds and vendors are brought together in one place, offering sheep reared in every environment in the UK to fit all market specifications.

Some stock is sold as part of official breed society sales, with additional catalogue information available.

More than 7,000 head are offered at NSA sales collectively.

NSA Sheep 2022

NSA looks forward to 2022 NSA Sheep Event

27th July 2021

With exactly one year until the return of the National Sheep Association (NSA)’s flagship event NSA Sheep 2022, plans are beginning to take shape to ensure visitors to the popular sheep farming show can look forward to an informative and enjoyable day out.

With Covid-19 causing the sad cancellation of the 2020 event, a year that would have celebrated 40 years of the popular event being held at the Three Counties Showground, Worcestershire, NSA Sheep 2022 will provide the first opportunity in four years for visitors to visit the business to business event.

Taking place on Wednesday 27th July 2022 the show will include a vast array of sheep farming trade stands from commercial companies, sheep breed societies and industry groups as well as offering attendees the chance to join informative seminars, workshops and demonstrations throughout the day. Competitions such as the finals of the NSA Next Generation shepherds competition, fencing and fleece competitions will go ahead with the popular sheepdog sale also returning.

Providing an opportunity to meet with others socially the evening before the main NSA event, the NSA Sheep Event dinner will also return next year and is open to both commercial companies and individuals interested in enjoying the evening.

NSA Chief Executive Phil Stocker comments: “All involved with NSA events and in particular the biennial national NSA Sheep Event were bitterly disappointed to not be able to welcome visitors last year, and indeed this year also, as Covid restrictions have meant the cancellation of further events.

But as plans for next year begin, we are excited by the prospect of the opportunity to meet face to face with sheep farmers and industry representatives from across the sector. NSA is confident that its events will return safely and successfully providing the UK’s sheep farmers with the chance to enjoy a worthwhile day out.”

Exhibitors interested in attending NSA Sheep Event will soon be able to confirm their trade stand space as bookings are expected to open very soon.
