NSA urges young sheep lovers to apply for Ambassador scheme

Young people with a ‘passion and enthusiasm for the sheep sector’ have been called upon by the National Sheep Association (NSA) to take a step to become a 2017 NSA Next Generation Ambassador.

 

As part of the scheme, the 12 successful ambassadors will take part in five two to three-day delivery sessions throughout the year, which will include practical sessions, classroom activities, farm walks and site visits.

 

Previous ambassadors praised the programme for its encouragement to meet like-minded people and the opportunity to gain the confidence to become a spokesman and promoters for the industry.

 

2016 NSA Next Generation Ambassador Jacob Anthony said: “I feel as if I have learnt so many new skills which I can take home to enhance my own business, whilst networking with several influential figures in the sheep sector.

 

“Not to mention the life-long friends I have made from all over the UK.

 

“I would highly recommend applying to become an NSA Next Generation Ambassador to anyone who is keen to learn more about our fantastic industry.”

 

Sessions also cover key topics such as grassland management, health inputs, business planning and negotiating skills.

 

The Ambassador group is open to young farmers across England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

 

Online applications close this Sunday December 18 and can be found at www.nsanextgeneration.org.uk/applyonline.
